Want to put your best foot forward this Show Season?
We have a few tips to help you excel.
1. Have a plan.
Plan your individual show carefully. Make use of corners and ride wide turns, keep a good rhythm and be careful not to push your horse or pony out of it's natural pace.
2. Don't underestimate the importance of the walk.
The importance of the walk pace is often overlooked, show a natural free walk at the start and end of your show. Remember your individual show is your chance to shine!
3. Make sure your horse is well schooled and mannerly.
It goes without saying that rideability is essential in the show ring and the better schooled your horse is, the more likely the judge is to enjoy riding him or her. Howev...

Despite the heavy rain and wind some of us have been experiencing these last few days spring is just around the corner, and so many of us are thinking about updating our wardrobes, getting rid of those old socks; you know the ones with the holes in, the breeches that just won't wash up clean anymore and maybe that old faithful competition jacket that has done just one too many seasons.
If you are on the look out for a new competition jacket, look no further than our brand new Ultima Quick Change Dressage Coat.
Designed for all disciplines, you will now only need one jacket, making this the ultimate competition jacket! What makes this so clever are the tails which detach from the jacket, revealing a shorter style jacket underneath....

We have all done it, got to a competition, maybe even running late, and we have started looking for something we 'need' only to realise we have left it at home! Often we can find someone parked up nearby that is kind enough to lend us whatever it is we have forgotten to pack, sometimes it's a quick last minute dash to the on site tack room, but don't get caught short again - check out our list of 20 essentials every Horsebox should have packed in it!
1. First Aid Kit. A well stocked first aid kit for both you and your horse is a must, hopefully you will never need to use it but just incase it's better to be safe than sorry.
2. Fresh water and water buckets. For washing off your horse after your competition and of c...
Choosing the right showing attire is more than just it looking good, you need to look good and feel good in order to really be able to perform your best in the show ring.
Freedom of movement is really important, so choose jackets, which feel comfortable and fit! Squeezing yourself into a jacket that is too small or short in the body will not only look ugly but will make you feel uncomfortable and be an unwelcome distraction in the ring. Choosing a jacket, which is cut, to flatter is especially important for showing, so look out for a nicely cut jacket, which skims your curves and gives a nice overall impression. Equetech are proud to offer choices for fuller figured riders and our tweed show jackets go up to a size 24 as standard and are...

A gilet can be a perfect addition to any equestrian wardrobe and here are our top three reasons why a gilet should become a staple in your wardrobe!
1. It's all about the layers, a gilet allows you to layer up, put a long sleeve warm comfy base layer underneath or in the warmer weather a t-shirt.
2. Comfort. Don't sweat when you ride, a gilet will keep you warm but should mean less sweatiness when you are working hard.
3. Movability. A gilet allows you freedom to move when in the saddle, you won't be restricted and are free to get on and ride.
