Burghley 2015 Blog

HorseHage at Burghley 2015

Here’s our third blog from the show circuit for 2015 written by Kate Perrott from our Equine Sales Team. Kate is based at Fox Feeds Ltd in Hertfordshire – our licensed HorseHage producer for the East of England. 

“It hardly seems possible that Burghley 2015 could have come round so quickly. We all look forward to this show, as Burghley House is such a beautiful setting, with plenty of customers, both old and new, popping onto the stand for a chat.

“We all arrived on the Wednesday to finish setting up the tradestand, making sure everything was ready for the first dressage day on Thursday. Unfortunately the great British weather took this opportunity to remind us that autumn is definitely on the way and the temperature was more than a little chilly the following morning! This didn’t seem to deter people however, and we had a busy day chatting to customers and giving out samples of Mollichaff as well as our ever popular dog bandanas.

“Friday was also a chilly day but after plenty of feeding advice, we all warmed ourselves up by walking round the cross country course before returning to our hotel for a much needed hot meal and glass of wine!

“As usual, Saturday was incredibly busy with a huge amount of people coming to see us before they set off round the course to watch the brave horse and rider combinations tackle what had seemed impossible fences when we’d walked round the night before! It’s always lovely to hear the success stories of customers who come back to tell us how well they’ve got on with our products after speaking to us last year, as well as hearing from new people who haven’t tried our feeds before. After an extremely long and busy day, it was an early night for us all.

“Sunday was show jumping day and the last day of the event. Thankfully the weather decided to be a little kinder and the sun made a very welcome appearance by mid-morning. After speaking to more lovely customers, we packed down our tradestand and all headed off to our respective homes, tired but having had a busy and fun packed week.”
