Hampshire Young Riders (photo: Louise Stickland)
UK - Battery powered wireless LED manufacturer Core Lighting has recently seen the power and versatility of its FLOOD30 products applied in a slightly different arena - the highly popular world of equine sport / leisure.

Two recent sales have resulted in the provision of practical solutions for two different equestrians, Andrea Brown based in Liphook, who runs the Hampshire Young Riders riding school, and Lindsey Nash, a Devon based horsewoman who is currently training up her young dapple grey purebred Arab, HS Casimir, for the world of endurance riding.

Andrea needed a bright, robust and user friendly floodlighting system that would allow her to offer longer and more flexible hours for instruction in her outdoor manège throughout the winter.

With many of her clients being young, it is essential for her boutique styled business to have after-school options all year round, and in the winter in the UK that means contending with darkness at 4 p.m. or even earlier if it's a cloudy, dull, grisly day.

Andrea made an initial purchase of two FLOOD30 floods complete with tripod stands from CORE, and has "found the perfect answer".

Near Exeter in Devon, Lindsey Nash is busy training HS Casimir in her own arena, which is also the standard 40 x 20m size. Like Angela, she found Corer initially on the internet, called up and spoke to MD Phil Ion who was "extremely helpful", answered all her questions and offered plenty of expert advice.

Once again, the FLOOD30 fixtures are the solution. They allow her to extend the day, capitalise on working later into the evenings or early mornings and integrate more horse training into her busy work schedule.

While this is a completely different application for Core products to entertainment and event lighting, HS Casimir does bring a touch of rock 'n' roll to the picture ... the 15.1 hh gelding was bred at Rolling Stone Charlie Watts' Halsdon Stud in North Devon and is descended from their famous Polish bloodlines.
