Equestrian supplies company Equiport opened its new retail showroom in Cheshire last week.

After developing an extensive range of competition clothing, show rugs, saddle cloths and stable apparel from their former base in Northwich town centre, Equiport has opened a new premises combining both a retail shop and factory in Allostock, Knutsford.

The ribbon was officially cut by show producer Louise Bell and eventer Oliver Townend on 11 February.

More than 500 customers attended the launch day, which featured special offers and a prize draw.

The retail store showcases Equiport’s own range, plus other equestrian brands, such as Gersemi, HV Polo, Veredus and Equipe. A hat and boot fitting service is also offered.

Although Equiport has been trading for nearly 20 years, the company has not had a retail outlet on this scale before. The business has previously focused on mail order, website trading and tradestands.

The showroom will be open from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday.
