Horses for Courses – Zerofit At The Horse Of The Year Show 2022
Equestrian fans will have the opportunity to experience Zerofit for themselves when we exhibit at this year’s Horse of the Year Show, held at the NEC in Birmingham on October 5-9 with tickets now on sale.
Undoubtedly the industry’s most eagerly anticipated and biggest week of the year for equestrian entertainment, more than 60,000 fans will be able to touch and feel a wide selection of Zerofit products including the award-winning Heatrub Ultimate (£55) and Move (£40) baselayers, as well as the Heatrub Ultimate leggings (£55) and socks (£25).
‘Zerofit baselayers are suitable for all sorts of sports and outdoor activities and we are confident the brand will be of great benefit to many people who are involved in the equine industry, whether from a leisure perspective or in a professional capacity,’ says Michael Morton, Zerofit Europe MD.
‘In recent years we have been working Anna Ross and her husband Kevin from the Kevin Ross Bloodstock agency around the suitability of Zerofit for the demands of industry, and their feedback has been a contributory factor in the brand’s decision to not only exhibit at the Horse of the Year Show but to also get more involved in equestrian sports as a whole,’ he added.
‘Before Zerofit, we hadn’t really come across a baselayer for this industry aside from normal running tops that you would have used as a thermal, but Zerofit is just on a different level, it’s so thick but also breathable. We use both the Ultimate and the Move throughout the year, and the products are very flexible for riding out. But they’re also great when we do a lot of sales in the autumn and winter. They’re brilliant for these, when it’s cold and you could be on the go outside from 7.30 in the morning until the sales end, and that could be as late as 8 or 9pm,’ says Anna.
‘We have a guy and a girl who work here in the yard, and we buy them Zerofit Christmas presents – they are invaluable for what we do. No matter how cold or windy it is in the morning, you put the Zerofit on and you know there’ll be no draughts and you’re guaranteed to stay warm for the day,’ adds Anna, who comes from a distinguished family of jockeys and trainers.
Her father Arthur Moore and grandfather Dan Moore both rode and trained Irish National Winners, and the latter also has the distinction of training L’Escargot to victory at the 1975 Aintree Grand National. During his career, Arthur has had eight winners at Cheltenham, including What A Charm in the 2011 Fred Winter Juvenile Hurdle and also Klairon Davis who triumphed in the Arkle as well as the Queen Mother Champion Chase.
The Zerofit events team is looking forward to this year’s Horse of the Year Show and we hope to see you at the NEC in October!
