As a brand ambassador for SsangYong - which is Korea’s oldest 4x4 and SUV specialist producer, Pippa represents the company at all the major equestrian events she attends.

Commented Nick Laird, managing director of SsangYong Motor UK, “We are absolutely delighted to have Pippa as one of our brand ambassadors.  As a manufacturer of authentic four-wheel drive vehicles noted for their off-road and towing capabilities, the equestrian market is an audience we value enormously and are privileged to be working with a horsewoman of Pippa’s standing.”

Pippa Funnell added: “I am really excited about driving the new Rexton and delighted to be continuing my relationship with SsangYong.  In the equestrian world it is essential to have a reliable 4-wheel drive vehicle that’s capable of towing a large horse or work trailer loaded with heavy jumps around the farm, and to get me to events often in wet, muddy conditions.

“I drove the previous Rexton for over 18 months and it excelled in all areas of my equestrian life.  I’m really looking forward to driving this new model, especially having read so many great reports.”
