Lister are proud manufacturers of clipping and shearing equipment. Based in Gloucestershire, Lister design and manufacturer all its products a short stone’s throw away from Hartpury and pride itself on the support it gives to the equestrian and agricultural industry.

“We are proud to be partnering with the organisers of the Blue Chip Championships to sponsor the 1.25m Championship series,” said Sebastian Goodison, Managing Director of Lister Shearing. 

“As a brand with such strong equestrian roots, we are thrilled to be supporting the class and championship. This partnership builds on our long-term support for the equestrian industry, and we look forward to being part of the competition series.”

The Blue Chip Championships have been an integral part of the winter show jumping scene since 1991 and although forced to miss the championship finals in 2020 and 2021 due to the global pandemic, it promises to be back with a stronger than ever championship finals next April.

“We are delighted that such an iconic company as Lister sponsor the Blue Chip Championship series and truly look forward to working together. Without such marvellous support these championships would not be able to happen” said Show Organiser Kelvin Bywater.
