Badminton - Will You Be There?
With the line up just announced, the stand preparations coming together and the stock building, it’s time to look to one of the biggest events on the equestrian calendar – Badminton.
Badminton, once dubbed ‘The Most Important Horse Event in Great Britain’, started in 1949. The first Badminton competition was won by ‘Golden Willow’ out of 22 starters based in Britain and Ireland. The event has grown hugely, becoming an instrumental event in the calendar for riders, businesses and customers. With a top prize for riders of £100,000, competition is fierce.
Our ever-popular XC Airoflow boot will also be on display at the stand; this signature boot boasts supreme cooling properties to keep your horse comfortable. The ventilating design allows air to flow through to the leg, with the quantity of air circulated increasing the harder the horse works. These boots, as with all our XC boots, are designed with our exclusive guard. Situated at the rear of the front boot and at the front of the rear boot, these guards help to either support the tendons or protect the horse against any impact.
You’ll be able to feel the material, test the strong touch-tape straps and see our other fantastic boots whilst at Badminton. We’re delighted that Willa Newton, a sponsored rider of NEW, will be competing, and we may even see Simon Grieve too – join us as we cheer them on!
To see our boots and meet the team, visit us at stand 56, Swangrove Street.
