Shop til you drop: Eventing Worldwide’s Guide to The Festival of British Eventing
With more than 140 retailers, The Festival of British Eventing is a shopaholic’s playground. From exquisite jewellery, equestrian essentials, fabulous footwear and stunning garden furniture, there’s something on everybody’s wish list.
Here’s Eventing Worldwide’s guide to the best Tradestands at this year’s Festival…….
Fairfax and Favor (Stand 99): As worn by a host of riders at the horse inspections at Badminton!
You can’t beat their classic Regina boots for ladies and recently launched driving shoes for men.
Hunter Field (Stand 89): The all-purpose equestrian collection, set to launch in Spring 2016, is the first collaboration within Hunter’s new brand category, Hunter Field. With a launch at the Festival the stand is sure to be popular.
The Mark Todd Collection (Stand 45): A firm favourite with the EWW team. With some of the most practical, stylish, and functional horse and rider wear about. Always on out to go list!
Horse Direct (Stand 9): Horse Direct brings you products for the horse, rider and yard, catering for all of your equestrian needs. They’re also a stockist for one of EWW’s favourite brands UVEX.
Hi Ho Silver (Stand 88): Eventing isn’t eventing without a trip round Hi Ho’s beautiful jewellery trade stand. We can’t think of many other ways to spend our cash.
Jimmy Hooves (Stand 97): For those wanting equine inspired prints with a distinct fashion edge then pay a visit to Jimmy Hooves. We were bowled over with their collections at Blenheim last year and can’t wait to see their summer prints for 2015.
British Equestrian Trade Association (Stand 121): Is your hat or body protector up to standard? Do they fit correctly? Visit the BETA stand, overlooking the Main Arena, with your hat or body protector and get them checked for free, and receive a 10% off voucher to be spent with a BETA member retailer on a new hat or body protector.
On top of this, there’s the usual Festival Food Hall, Gatcombe Shop and Rural Crafts Association so you can shop until you’re hearts content.
