The British Equestrian Federation (BEF) has agreed a two year partnership with Equi-Trek, who will come on board as the ‘Official Supplier of equestrian trailers to the British Equestrian Team’ until the end of 2016.
Equi-Trek will be providing two trailers - a Cyclone 100 and a Space-Treka III - for use by the Equestrian World Class Programme and British equestrian athletes throughout the season. One of the units, which has been fitted out as a mobile physiotherapy and veterinary unit, made its debut at the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials last month, and will be heading up to the Equi-Trek Bramham International Horse Trials next week (11-14 June) to provide support to British riders during the event.
Funded by the National Lottery, the World Class Programme identifies talent, develops potential and supports Team GBR to win medals at the Olympic and Paralympic Games and other major equestrian Championships.
Tom Janion, Managing Director of Equi-Trek commented; “We are delighted to have been appointed by the British Equestrian Federation as official trailer supplier to Team GBR as they prepare for the forthcoming European Championships”.
Equi-Trek are the largest producer of horseboxes and trailers in the UK and the only British company to manufacture a complete range of horse transport from lightweight, towable trailers up to 26 tonne luxury horseboxes for over 10 horses.
World Class Performance Director Dan Hughes said; “The support of Equi-Trek to the World Class Programme and British equestrian teams will provide us with a step change in the provision of essential services at national and international competitions and allow us to best support our British athletes to win medals on the world stage. The logistical support the World Class Programme provides to athletes, owners and home teams is vital to ensure a winning mentality and environment; the trailers will become an integral part of our logistical plan and we are delighted to be working with Equi-Trek as we prepare for the European Championships later this year.”
Equi-Trek will sit alongside an impressive list of Official Suppliers, including but not limited to; Land Rover, Toggi, Dodson & Horrell, Natural Animal Feeds, NuuMed, Point Two Equine and TAGG Equestrian. Equestrian Team GBR covers all the equestrian Olympic and Paralympic disciplines, our non-Olympic FEI disciplines and youth teams.
