Introduction

The Equestrian Centre

Set in the inspiring location of Aintree Racecourse, home of the Randox Health Grand National, Aintree International Equestrian Centre boasts some of the very best facilities for equine stars of today and the future.

Completed in 2007, the centre was designed specifically to provide a venue for Equestrianism, and is now a showpiece in itself. It is now considered one of the premier venues within the North of England, for horse shows and events. This has also enabled Aintree to become a prestigious training centre for an assortment of disciplines within the sport, and well known names within the international show jumping and dressage world.

Equine Industry

Equestrian sport is unique in that men and women compete against each other on an equal basis. It is also a sport that holds a strong social and family element – this means that consequently show centres often become hosts to entire families and groups of friends alike.

The equestrian industry is worth £4.2bn. The figure excludes racing, but includes riding lessons which are worth more than £700m. Over the last decade, riding has become less seasonal with 95% riding all year round, compared with 61% in 1995.

More than eight in ten equestrian consumers have internet access. However at 53% for all purchases and 64% for saddlery, the specialist equestrian retailer remains the favourite place to shop.

The demographics within the equestrian industry are desirable for most prestigious brands and businesses. Not only does the industry and its counterparts reach the riders and equine enthusiasts but also the families and relatives of those involved within equestrianism.
