Horse Play At The British Equine Event!

The country's top equine experts gather at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire for the twelfth British Equine Event to be held on 2nd - 3rd November. From top equestrian stars and celebrity vets to specialised stands and a focused business forum, the British Equine Event is the biggest event of its kind, offering everything for the horse and rider.

Packed with practical demonstrations and features, this year's event will be seeing celebrity demonstrations from three-day eventers Vere and Clea Phillipps, and dressage gurus Conrad Shumacher and Pammy Hutton. There's the chance to grab some tips from show jumper Andy Austin or see TV vet Sally Kingsley, from the BBC's 'Vets in Practice' programme, talking on a wide range of everyday healthcare issues as part of the Robinson Animal Healthcare Healthy Horse Focus.

Sally is highlighting the latest advances in wound management and recovery procedures as well as routine therapy such as poulticing and hot and cold therapy. Horse owners also have the chance to pick up advice from her on bandaging and dressing wounds, the basics of healing, optimum healing environments and knowing when to call for immediate veterinary assistance.

Visitors will have the chance to learn the art of Western riding with Bob Mayhew in partnership with the British Reining Association, and the chance to judge a special reining competition! During the Equine Event Reining cup, members of the audience will be asked to score each rider, and the person who guesses closest to the judge's score wins a prize.

The Julie Templeton Show team will be presenting to audiences 'Training and producing the show pony' sponsored by Bailey's horse feeds by casting judge Julie Templeton's eyes over a selection of ponies and riders. From three-year old tots riding lead-rein ponies to teenagers and young adults riding native breeds up to 15 hands high, visitors gain a valuable insight in to show pony training and production.

The British Equine Event also features an up-to-the-minute Business Forum. Now in its fourth year, the forum has proved to be invaluable as a business information resource, offering practical advice on key issues affecting the equine industry. It will appeal to professionals from across the whole sector, concentrating on marketing equine businesses, the future of equestrian shopping and what legal pitfalls to avoid when buying a horse.

With its two-day demonstration programme and over 300 specialist trade stands offering unbeatable Christmas shopping opportunities, the British Equine Event is a must for anyone with an interest in horses and riding.
