All England Jumping Course - Hickstead


In the 1960's there were no facilities in Great Britain that could match those found in Europe and the United States: this left the British riders with a disadvantage before they had jumped a fence.

The All England Jumping Course was created by Douglas Bunn after he purchased Hickstead Place and the surrounding land with the intention, "to put on the best show jumping possible at a venue that is superior to anything found in the world".


Bunn Leisure is proud to be not only the Title Sponsor for The Longines Royal International Horse Show, The British Jumping Derby Meeting and The Hurstpierpoint College National Schools & Pony Club Jumping Championships but also the sponsor of a number of events including...


The Bunn Leisure Derby Tankard                          The Bunn Leisure Derby Trial


The Bunn Leisure Masters Challenge                      The Bunn Leisure Trophy


The Bunn Leisure International Stakes                  The Bunn Leisure Salver

Amber Joseph - Cycling


Bunn Leisure is also very proud to be a sponsor of Amber Joseph since 2013. Back then we said she was "a champion cyclist in the making!"


In July 2017 Amber won a GOLD medal to become Pan-American Champion for the points race, and won a SILVER medal in the Omnium!


At only just 17, Amber has exceeded the required threshold on race points to be classed as an "Elite" adult next season.

We will continue to Sponsor Amber and wish her all the very best of luck in the future!


"I am very good at carrying bikes, and look forward to doing so with Amber in Tokyo 2020!" said Managing Director John Bunn.

HM Naval Base Portsmouth Field Gun Crew


Bunn Leisure is delighted to have sponsored HM Naval Base Portsmouth Field Gun Crew since 2011 when the world record for the Gun Run was broken and a new record of 1 minute 17.78 seconds was set by HMNB Portsmouth.


The Gun weighs in at 1250lbs, the Limber 360lbs and each of the four wheels is 120lbs each! The total amount lifted in one go at the 'Double-Lift'  is over 1 Ton.
