OLYMPIAN PIPPA FUNNELL MBE DEMONSTRATES IMPRESSIVE HORSEPOWER WITH THE NEW SSANGYONG REXTON12-03-2020
Top British horsewomen and member of the 2016 Olympic Team GB, Pippa Funnell MBE has taken delivery of her new SsangYong Rexton Ultimate. 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 model year 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.”
Eventing, including the title sponsorship of The SsangYong Blenheim Horse Trials and as the Official Vehicle Sponsor of Badminton Horse Trials, has become an integral part of SsangYong’s marketing activities complementing the firm’s focus on 4x4 vehicles and Sports Utility Vehicles. Both major equestrian events present a perfect platform for SsangYong’s 4x4 range, including the awarding winning Musso pick-up truck and its flagship vehicle, Rexton.
