BETA INTERNATIONAL REWARDS INNOVATION
20th February, 2013.
There was a keen sense of competition surrounding the ETN Innovation Awards as entries from across eight categories battled it out for a trophy in these highly prized industry accolades.
The panel of judges, made up of course designer Ian Stark, event rider Nicola Wilson, veterinary surgeon Tom Beech, Jackie Potts, groom for William Fox-Pitt and former Groom of the Year, and Paralympics gold medal-winning rider Natasha Baker, had the difficult task of selecting those worthy of an award.
SADDLERY & TACK
Company: Stûbben Riding Equipment UK & Ireland Ltd
Product: 2 in 1 Full Cheek Snaffle 2273
The 2-in-1 Full Cheek Snaffle features an innovative mouthpiece, which increases attention and concentration, as well as preventing desensitization of the mouth. The upper side of the mouthpiece features a rounder shape and provides a smoother impact on the horse’s mouth. The bottom side has an angular shape giving a stronger action on the horse’s mouth. By simply changing the sides, both effects can be alternated.
Judges’ comments: “We would all use this bit as it is well made and the sweet copper link will encourage saliva production for better acceptance of the bit. Advanced and professional riders should find this very useful and versatile.”
