YOUR Horse Live – the ‘must visit’ event of the year hit new highs in 2011 with increased visitors, more exhibitors and demonstrations that led to packed stands.
With visitors flocking to Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire, from first thing in the morning, this year’s Your Horse Live was one of the best ever.
Top names provided exciting and enlightening demonstrations and included dressage star Laura Bechtolsheimer discussing how to improve a horse’s way of going with riders Jade Vale and Katherine Boyd as well as helping young dressage star of the future Charlotte Ward.
Event rider Oliver Townend and show jumper Geoff Billington shared their training secrets with plenty of laughs along the way, their fun-filled partnership now well established and proving a real crowd pleaser.
A dressage to music master class was provided by Anna Ross-Davies and Roland Tong while the rollercoaster ride that is Rockin’ Horse saw the incredible stunt team put on a heart-stopping performance.
Michael Bacon of TopSpec said: “We were incredibly busy with the stand bursting with visitors and we had so much interest in our competition to win a weekend break to London and tickets to War Horse, it was brilliant.”
The Breeds Village is always a ‘must visit’ area of Your Horse Live and with an array of rare breeds, this year proved once again how popular these wonderful animals are.
