Nissan is to continue its sponsorship of the Chatsworth International Horse Trials in Derbyshire next month.

The global car manufacturer has pledged a five-figure financial package as well as the use of 4x4 vehicles from their range for use by officials during the event, from May 10-11.

Nissan first sponsored the event last year.

With this year being an Olympic year, many of the World's potential riders are expected to compete in their preparation for the big test in Hong Kong in August.

Chatsworth's world-renown cross country course designer Mike Etherington-Smith is also in charge of the Olympic course.
