Warwickshire. Jonathan Robinson of Gateway Events, who has been
organising exhibitions and other events across a wide range of industries
for ten years, and who is one of the UK's most experienced event
promoters, commented, 'We are really excited about Equestriantype.
In all the years I have worked within the events industry I have
never experienced such a strong demand for exhibition space. Several
exhibitors have commented that they have been waiting for an event
like this for years. There are plenty of events that are no more
than glorified shopping opportunities, selling tack and clothing,
Equestriantype is an event where people can find out about the essentials
of keeping horses safely in the paddock, yard and during transit.'
will be taking over two halls at the National Agricultural Centre
for the event. Hall 1 will contain a huge variety of exhibitors
displaying products and services that are absolutely essential to
the horse owner, whether they are professionals or leisure riders.
An arena will be installed in Hall 2, with tiered seating to accommodate
the visitors who will be able to view demonstrations, lessons and
advisory talks that will be led by industry experts.
Equestriantype will open for three days, the first day being designated
as a 'trade only' day where proprietors of riding schools, instructors,
trainers, agricultural equipment vendors, saddlers, race course
operators and anyone who works with, or around horses on a professional
basis will be eligible for entry. Days two and three will be open
to the public and anyone who was unable to visit on day one.
the team at Gateway Events is managing director, Jane Robinson who
has thirty years riding experience and is BHSAI Reg. Jane commented,
'I know first hand from my work at various teaching institutions
and running our own competition yard, the exact requirements of
caring for horses in the yard, paddock and whilst being transported.
Equestriantype is the event where anyone with an interest in horses
can come along and meet the suppliers who can provide them with
all of the essential requirements.'
