Your Horse Live 2012 Reaches New High

Your Horse Live 2012 saw records broken and new highs reached with 21,838 visitors heading to Stoneleigh for the hugely successful two day event. A rise of 15% on last year, the 2012 event saw the fourth successive increase in visitor’s year on year at what has become an exceptional equine extravaganza.

From excellent shopping opportunities to world class demonstrations by Olympic hero’s and heroine’s Carl Hester, Ben Maher, Charlotte Dujardin and Mary King, Your Horse Live provided a fabulous day out for all equestrian fans. With more than 370 trade stands, varying from leading feed companies, to tack and saddlery suppliers, clothing manufacturers and toys and gifts, there was something for everyone. Trade stands were fully booked months in advance with exhibitors reporting excellent business over the two days. With Olympic names headlining the main arena demonstrations, the stands were packed for every performance with visitors delighted at the opportunity to watch and learn from four supremely talented riders. In Arena 2 a wide range of demonstrations and displays included Jason Webb, starting a young horse, Classical riding with Sylvia Loch, show jumping made simple with Mia Korenika and helping problem horses with Richard Maxwell. The Q&A Live Zone was as popular as ever with everything from dentistry to farriery, understanding horses’ emotions, bits and bitting, and massage for horses all discussed through fun and fascinating talks with a host of experts.
