English Tack Shop, North America's English tack superstore, reported on the company's recent attendance at two of the industry's most important trade shows. Having traveled to attend the BETA International trade show in Birmingham, England, from Jan. 24 through 26, English Tack Shop buyers then headed almost immediately to the American Equestrian Trade Association show at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center on Jan. 29. With thousands of equestrian products on display between the two shows, English Tack Shop buyers came away with dozens of ideas for new additions to the company's inventories, some of which will be available soon at — www.englishtackshop.com.
"Every year during the coldest stretch of winter, we look forward to getting away and seeing what the industry's many innovative manufacturers have come up with," English Tack Shop owner Sue Bown said, "This year was no exception, with a whirlwind tour of two of the most important trade shows of all revealing some fascinating new products. We think our valued customers are going to be excited to see what we have in store as we settle down and figure out just which of these many impressive new goods to add to our inventories."
Although the numbers have declined somewhat from historical highs, horse riding and specialized activities like dressage remain extremely popular throughout the United Kingdom and North America. The U.K. alone, for example, boasts around 1.3 million regular riders, according to a survey conducted by the British Equine Trade Association, with nearly three quarters of them being female.
While the main source of satisfaction for most equestrians lies in the direct bond and natural interplay between rider and horse, the sports do tend to require a fair amount of supporting equipment. English Tack Shop is North America's leading source for a full range of goods and services directed at riders and their horses.
The company carries, for example, the widest available range of beautifully crafted, exquisitely functional neue schule bits to be found in North America, giving riders access to these and other products that are widely regarded as standing among the best of all. Services like saddle reflocking also allow clients to extract more life and usage in the ring from beloved tack, with local riders even being able to rent bits temporarily.
By attending two of the industry's busiest and most important trade shows recently, English Tack Shop representatives help ensure that the company remains the most capable and reliable of its kind in North America. As a result of the recent trips, English Tack Shop customers can look forward to exciting new products to be added to its inventories in the near future.
