Because we love to be a bit patriotic we have had a look at the various kit you can get to show your support for the team and Great Britain in general whilst also giving you a chance to win some.
This year sees the 10 year anniversary of Toggi’s association with the British Equestrian Federation and of the brand’s support of Equestrian Team GBR. With the Longines FEI European Eventing Championships at Blair Castle now just over a week away, E-Venting has teamed up with Toggi to give you the chance to win fab gear from the latest Toggi Team GBR collection.
Deigned to help you cheer on our Team GBR heroes in style at Blair, the official Toggi Equestrian Team GBR collection includes stylish Toggi jackets, gilets, hoodies, polo shirts and accessories, all in patriotic red, white and blue and featuring the prestigious Team GBR logo. With a percentage of sales going back to the British Equestrian Federation to help generate additional funds for all equestrian disciplines, proudly wearing the Toggi Team GBR collection is a great way to show your support and to play a part in helping Great Britain on their way to Championship Glory.
For more details of how to win see the end of this article.
Racesafe will once again be supplying their distinctive body protectors to all team GBR riders as they have also to the Pony, Junior and Young Rider teams in GBR colours this year. A favourite among eventers for their flexible and comfortable protection.
SAVE!! – Our supporters Treehouse will be at Blair and are able to expertly fit you with a new Racesafe body protector. Even better they are offering e-Venting readers the chance to save 10% off all orders for safety equipment (including Body protectors, air jackets, hats and more) all you need to do is quote EVSAFETY when ordering either at their stand, on their website or over the phone.
A popular favourite with eventers is Kate Negus’ new elasticated grackle, designed in partnership with GBR squad member Kitty King. Unlike other designs using rolled leather that can put notable pressure across a small area, the flat elastic is able to provide the desired stretch to the noseband whilst providing an all round comfortable fit for the horse. All Kate Negus‘ tack is made in England and with bespoke sizing as standard finding the perfectly fitting bridle becomes child’s play. Add in second to none quality, and excellent customer service and you can’t go wrong choosing a Kate Negus bridle.
At Blair to keep my feet warm and to show my national pride I will be wearing these fantastic socks I found at Burghley on the Wacky Sox stand. So if you’re at Blair look out for a photographer sporting these fantastic socks!
Squad riders including William Fox Pitt use FMBs Therapy System products on their horses. Many amateur riders can be put off by the cost of purchasing but FMBs offer hire options which is ideal for special occasions (big competitions) or for horses rehabilitating from an injury.
Our final mention must go to Mirrors for Training whose arena mirrors are an invaluable training aid for multiple Team GBR squad members. Their affordable custom mirror with purchase and hire options ensure that their mirrors are available to all. Anyone who has ever ridden in an arena with mirrors will know how fantastic they are for instantly picking up a slight crookedness and seeing exactly how your horse is carrying it’s head!
