March Blog

We would all like to believe that "Spring has Sprung" with shorts and T-shirts soon to be dusted off and adorned. March sadly has a different opinion and the old saying of "March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb" doesn't appear to be true this year! With the variable weather conditions, one day dry and bright with a promise of summer being just around the corner, to the next day listening to the met office issuing weather warnings, as yet another storm rampages across the UK. The unpredictable weather conditions have seen the sales of our Spring/Summer range of jackets and cooler weather apparel going down a storm (excuse the pun). The incredibly stylish Alpha Soft Shell jacket and the wonderfully versatile Adstock Country Sporting jacket are proving extremely popular this season. The versatility of the Adstock Sporting jacket has seen this beautiful jacket not only "On Trend" in the countryside but also proving its worth as a fashionable and stylish city outfit.

The Fashionista's were out in force on March 10th with our very own Managing Director, Liz Hayman and Equetech sponsored rider and international dressage rider, Amy Stovold guest speaking at the London headquarters of concierge service Quintessentially for a VIP style evening for 'Quintessentially Equestrian' members and special guests. The evening focused on what to wear for the coming season both in the competition arena and everyday riding wear as well as focusing on top style trends and showcasing how equestrian can cross over to high fashion.

Sponsored rider, Jodie Amos and Wise Crack have very excitingly been confirmed on the list of entrants for Badminton Horse Trials 2016. Wise Crack is owned by both Jodie and Nicola Coates and is affectionately called Cracker. Jodie says that "Cracker over the last few weeks has developed a trot that rather resembles Piaffe. He's such a talented and versatile horse to be the galloping XC, with the potential to be retrained for pure dressage- what an athlete." Jodie goes on to say that "I can't quite repeat the new posh trot in the arena yet but there were certainly glimpses of it to score a 25 dressage! He then tried his little socks off for one down, jockey error, and a lovely effortless XC hack round the course. Next stop Burnham Market CIC*** a definite favourite of his, having won both the novice and the CIC** and finished 4th and 7th in his two outings in the CIC***." We are all looking forward to hearing about Jodie and Wise Crack's Badminton preparations and will keep our readers updated to their progress.
