Harrison Lane Sponsor of the Harrison Lane Pro-Amateur Rider Series
For the team at Harrison Lane, it’s all about the camaraderie they feel as part of the wider world of equestrian.
Company director Laura Daly is a rider from way back, having started riding as a nine-year-old when she lived in the UK. Things have come a long way since then.
When they were offered the sponsorship of the Pro-Amateur Rider Series, they didn’t have to think twice. “We felt it was a great fit for us as many of our clients compete at this level so it is a good opportunity to give back to the sport,” says Laura. “Being part of a national series was an exciting opportunity for us.”
Like other sponsors, they are heartened by the appreciation shown by many riders who get in touch to say thank you or share their results on social media throughout the season.
“Marilyn (Thompson) and the team at ESNZ have made us feel very welcome and looked after us well as sponsors throughout the season,” says Laura. “We feel it is the beginning of a great relationship.”
She is passionate about all that she does. “I feel like I never go to work.”
Harrison Lane are award-winning Auckland and Waikato based Master Builders, specialising in rural and equestrian construction. It’s owned by hands-on directors Laura Daly and Scott Munro – Laura taking care of sales and Scott the construction side of the business. This year they have three entries in the Master Builder’s House of the year awards and they’re excitedly waiting to see if they can replicate their 2019 efforts when they received a gold award and the regional lifestyle award for the most sustainable home in Auckland.
“Each project we work on with our clients is unique and sharing the journey with them is hugely rewarding and fun,” says Laura. The company designs and builds bespoke country homes of all sizes. “Our in-house design capability is a great option for those who want something unique without the additional expense of an architect.”
Harrison Lane recently extended their support of equestrian sport to sponsor showjumper Laura Inkster and Grand Prix dressage rider Cooper Oborn. “We’re excited for next season and look forward to seeing everyone out there,” says Laura.
