The founder of The Equestrian Business Awards has launched a new scheme, after seeing the positive effect of celebrating excellence within the industry.

Equinnect is an equestrian directory aimed at small businesses, professionals and organisations, founded by Katy Wright, with the aim of extending this community. The directory aims to be an affordable space where vetted professionals can reinforce their dedication to equine welfare and maintaining high standards of professionalism to current and potential clients, by adhering to The Equinnect Charter and becoming a Verified Member.

The platform welcomes a range of different equestrian businesses. The directory gives peace of mind to horse owners as they are safe in the knowledge that the qualifications, up to date CPD, insurance, relevant licenses and membership of regulatory bodies, have been verified and that reviews left by clients are accurate.

Uniting the equestrian community

Once successfully vetted, members of Equinnect will have access to the following benefits:

  • Verified Member Logo for use across marketing materials
  • QR Code for clients to access their profile
  • Ability to blog and share evidence based knowledge or case studies
  • Upload photos and videos
  • Create events
  • Receive messages from prospective clients
  • Create discount coupons
  • Receive reviews
  • Private community on the website for business or personal support.

Since it’s launch earlier this month, there has been an influx of members. There is currently a 20% discount to celebrate the launch, using the code EBA20 upon joining.
