The Underwriting Exchange and Devenish are the main sponsors of the senior Irish show jumping team


The Underwriting Exchange specialise in niche insurance and reinsurance solutions in Ireland, the United Kingdom and internationally. They strive to provide customers with bespoke insurance solutions, and in addition they provide several different schemes and facilities. Their Irish office is based in Dublin and is known as LIME (London Ireland Market Exchange).

“The Underwriting Exchange are proud to have sponsored Team Ireland Equestrian since 2017 and we are also the main sponsor of Gordon Elliott Racing. Our association with equestrian sport has aided us in widening our Irish brand footprint across a range of sectors, in particular the sport and agricultural sectors.

“We are delighted with the progress Rodrigo [Pessoa] has made with the senior Irish show jumping squad. Last summer’s success at the Europeans was a tremendous breakthrough.

“In addition, it appears that similar to what the Irish Rugby team are trying to do as they build towards the World Cup, Rodrigo is endeavouring to have a wider pool of riders. The success last weekend in Hickstead underlines that, as well as two recent seconds.

“Thus, the future leading in to the World Equestrian Games and the Olympics looks very promising. We wish everyone competing at the Dublin Horse Show the very best of luck and hope to see our Irish team holding up the Aga Khan trophy on Friday” – Stephen O’Connor, executive director of The Underwriting Exchange.

Devenish are an agri technology company providing nutritional solutions for all species of animals. Their strategic focus is on health; animal, human and environmental, working to optimise the conditions required to deliver this.

“We continue to promote sport at every level and we are very pleased to sponsor the Irish show jumping team. They represent us all at the highest level internationally and continue to perform in an exceptional manner, most recently at Hickstead.

“Elite sport is very important at a national and international level and very demanding for all concerned. We are pleased to provide our support for the riders, their horses, their management and support teams. A very great many people have worked and are working very hard to deliver these performances and we wish everyone concerned continued success in their endeavour” – Owen Brennan, executive chair of Devenish.
