Equus - The Horse Event Expanding

"Equus provides a really good start to the season. The venue is great, easy to reach by public transport and motorway and a great place to meet our members"

Pat Gaywood of the British Horse Society reflects on the benefits of Equus, a view shared by both exhibitors and visitors.

This year's event saw the consolidation of this new addition to the equestrian calendar attracting over 20,000 visitors during the four days. The displays by Tim Stockdale, Blyth Tait, Kelly Marks and many others proved to be an irresistible combination yet again. 93% of visitors enjoyed it so much they said they would come back next year.

Equus will be held at ExCel in London on 3rd-6th April 2003. Plans for next year will ensure the extensive variety and high quality standard of displays will continue with three separate sessions with adequate gaps allowing for extended shopping time. Seats can be booked for the individual sessions, a system that was pioneered this year and will be further structured next year.

More horses can be seen at Equus 2003 will the installation of a second arena, to be used predominantly for horses practicing and warming-up. It will allow visitors to get closer to the stars in the intimate indoor setting and watch them in action prior to entering the Main Arena.

The event is expanding to provide even more for visitors. There will be a new country area that will include country clothing and outdoor accessories and a new "outdoor" area will also be incorporated within the hall for horseboxes, horse walkers and other larger display items.
