We had a brilliant time at Your Horse Live, where BETA sponsored the main arena once again. This huge, pre-Christmas shopping spectacular at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire, took place over three days, from 8 to 10 November, attracting an enthusiastic and knowledgeable audience of horsey folk.
The BETA team, including Agy Mossakowska-Knast (pictured above), were there to chat to them about our many initiatives and promote the benefits of shopping with a BETA retail member. Top of our list was the launch of BETA Feed Awareness Week – but more of that later – and a tie-in test with a top prize of a £150 shopping voucher. The spot prizes in the main arena, generously donated by BETA members, also proved a real hit with visitors. Our free riding hat and body protector safety checks were as popular as ever and the BETA Best Stand Awards were hotly contested by everyone. This year, the winners of gold and silver standards across the three categories were:
● Equestrian & Saddlery: Gold presented to Joshua Jones, Horse Health – which also took Best in Show – WOW Saddles, Dengie Horse Feeds, Ayr Equestrian and Allen & Page, with silver for Wychanger Barton, Simple System Horse Feeds, Elevator Equestrian & EquiAmi, Equilibrium Products, Westgate Labs and Fynalite.
● Lifestyle, Pet & Fashion: Gold awarded to Finer Equine, Honest Riders and PetPlan Equine, with silver going to Hooves and Love and Katie Hough Equine Art.
