British Showjumping is delighted to announce Equithème as the new title sponsor of the Leading Pony Showjumper of the Year Championship.

The Championship is one of the most prestigious in the British Showjumping calendar and it is one of the Championships that every pony rider wants to win.

Equithème Director Eric Imiola said: “It is very exciting that we are the new sponsors of the Leading Pony Showjumper of the Year Championship, it is an iconic class that all pony riders are keen to win. With the final taking place at such a prestigious event as Horse of the Year Show, we are very much looking forward to following the qualifiers as they get underway in the New Year.”

The Equithème Leading Pony Showjumper of the Year is one of the most important series on the summer calendar and is open to Grade JA ponies ridden by a Junior Member. During the summer months, combinations will battle it out for a place in the Championship Final, which will once again take place during Horse of the Year Show at Birmingham’s NEC Genting Arena (3rd – 7th October 2018). As part of this sponsorship, the National 148cm Championship at the British Showjumping National Championships (7th – 12th August 2018) will also be prefixed with the Equithème name.

Established in 1985, Equithème has gone from strength to strength in creating beautiful collections for both horse and rider. Designing and developing matching collections using fun and vibrant colours, the stylish ranges make the brand stand out in the equestrian market around the world, by using high-tech quality fabrics and a focused attention to detail with a French touch. This established French brand is famous for its forward-thinking style and one of the most iconic collections across Europe. Horse wear and apparel by Equithème is always designed around what riders, horse owners and horses themselves need out of their clothing or equipment.

Maria Haig, Head of Communications at British Showjumping, added “We are delighted to have Equithème join British Showjumping’s sponsor portfolio by aligning with the Leading Pony Showjumper. The Championship is the ideal fit for Equithème as it will provide the platform for showcasing their modern product offering for both horse and rider.”

New Gear For The New Year From Abbey England

Posted on Tuesday, December 19, 2017 by Sarah Wild

With a new year ahead of you, why not update your stable for 2018 with some quality equipment from the Stubbs range from Abbey England?

Renowned for their durability, the colourful products are guaranteed to make your stable management routine easier.

As well as being light, well-balanced and easy to tip, the Stubby Barrow from Abbey England is an immensely strong, high capacity stable barrow with a modern twist.

The tough Stubbythene body in Blue, Green or Baby Pink has stepped sides to increase strength and capacity and a steel reinforced front with a galvanised steel frame for lifelong durability. The colossal top size allows high peaked loads whilst retaining full manoeuvrability. Whether mucking out or carrying bales and sacks, this workhorse is formidable.

The Stubbs High Stable Mate is great for collecting droppings in the stable, and paddock, alongside a barrow and has a superior rake with a scraper on the back which is excellent for shavings, wet bedding and on concrete/rubber floors or grass. This taller version measures 80cm high with the rake measuring 84cm and will save adults from having to bend down.

Once your stable is spick and span, why not cheer up your feed room as well?

From feed bins and scoops, to bowls and buckets you can find it all in a variety of colours and sizes in the Stubbs range of stable, tack room and yard equipment from Abbey England.
