ESS Bring Expertise To British Equine Event
Stand T1

The UK's leading specialist Equestrian breakdown service provider, Equestrian Support Services (ESS) is bringing its expertise to this year's British Equine Event at Stoneleigh Park.

Accidents and breakdowns involving horse boxes or trailers are unfortunately all too common. It is for this reason that ESS will be holding its own Trailer Trials at this year's event. ESS is inviting visitors to visit its outdoor arena in order to test their knowledge and skills against the clock in a 4x4 with trailer, manoeuvring through a course which has been specially designed by BSM towing instructors.

The event is designed to teach visitors about the risks involved in towing, the precautions to take and how to minimise the risk of an accident or breakdown on the road.
Supported by motoring organisation RAC, the trials are the first of their kind and ESS is hoping that as well as being a fun experience, they will draw drivers' attention to the many, yet often forgotten risks of travelling with a horse box or trailer.

ESS Managing Director, Nick Hamilton commented, "These trailer trials will be a great experience for participants and we have some fantastic prizes on offer, but there is also a serious reason for them. We receive over 5000 calls from customers every year who have been in an accident or breakdown involving horseboxes or trailers. They
range from the very minor to the extremely serious, but in both cases, most are preventable through better planning and awareness.

The course lasts about 15 minutes. Anyone can have a go and participants will be accompanied by a BSM instructor at all times".

If you don't fancy getting behind the wheel, ESS also has a group of representatives present who will be able to provide advice and guidance on travelling with horses or how to cope in a breakdown situation. There will even a horse racing simulator on the stand to keep the children (or adults!) happy.

All show visitors are welcome to come to the stand either to take part or to seek advice from ESS' wealth of experts, there may even be a few surprise guests!
