A DELIVERY by an East Lancashire sporting supplier will keep some of our top equestrian stars on the level.

Bosses at Burnley-based Equestrian Surfaces (ES) have been commissioned to lay the ground work for the Theraplate UK Liverpool International Horse Show.

And this will involve the delivery of 900 tonnes of Cushion Track Premier to the city's M&S Bank Arena to satisfy the demands of some of the world's leading riders and horses.

ES Ltd, which specialises in waxed and non-waxed surfaces, as well as sand, fibre and rubber coverings, is also supplying the track for the warm-up and lunge pens backstage.

Their team will also be taking up a trade stand in the shopping village associated with the event, which takes place from December 28 to 31.

Live music acts, LED trail bikes and dancing Tron Girls have been lined up, as well as a champagne bar, kids zone and several restaurants.

One of the leading choices for riding schools and racecourses and arenas, the Phoenix Way firm recently celebrated its 35th anniversary and has been revamping its website.
