EQUESTRIAN history was made this week by a Great Eccleston business woman, whose horse-care company won a major trade award for the second year in succession.
Hannah Wild of Supplement Solutions took first prize in the 2012 British Equestrian Trade Association (BETA) Business Awards after also scooping the accolade last year.
It is the first time that anybody has won two years on the trot in the association’s 30-year history.
The announcement was made on Sunday at a glittering awards ceremony hosted by BETA at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham.
Stepping forward to receive the winner’s cup for the mail order and internet company of the year accolade was Hannah Wild who founded Supplement Solutions seven years ago. Recognised as the Oscars of the horse industry, the BETA awards are based on more than 4000 votes cast by the public for their favourite firms.
But there are more hurdles to clear for companies getting onto the awards short list, for judges also carry out a range of other investigations, including “secret shopper” tests.
Hannah, who is a keen rider and teacher, runs her business www.supplementsolutions.co.uk, which lists more than 5000 nutritional supplements to aid horse health.
