Behind every brand there is a team, often little, rowing upstream for dear life! Pilot has a small team of dedicated specialists , and the threads are pulled together by long time friends, Eddie & Ben.
That's us... (we're writing this!)
Like many good bromances, ours started at University and we kept in touch. Fast forward a decade or so and armed with a lot more age and a little bit more wisdom, we set our sights on combining our experiences of two different worlds to create something meaningful...
Eddie - Humans
Eddie has a background in the fitness industry and is an expert of human supplementation. He is weeks away from being qualified Personal Trainer and his first pony was called Arnie. That was also his last pony, and with no plans to get back aboard, Eddie's focus on fitness and nutrition is an invaluable driver behind our quest to encourage riders at all levels to be the best version of themselves. If you have any questions on health and fitness for Eddie he can be found here eddie [@] pilotequine.co.uk .
Ben - Horses
Having only found horses in the late teens, it's fair to say Ben has dived headlong into all things horsey. Ben is now responsible for a livery yard and riding school, breeds horses, runs a racing syndicate, and Field Masters most Saturdays giving him a broad understanding of the holistic care required for all types of horses in multiple industries.
Together, our passion is to lead the charge in asking riders to take themselves seriously as athletes, whilst producing a focussed and premium selection of supplements for their horses.
Ben, when not driving a wagon, can be contacted about any and all things equine here ben [@] pilotequine.co.uk.
Jessica - Vet and Fact Checker
Having ridden her first pony at the age of three, a continued love of horses sparked Jess' interest in becoming a vet, and she qualified from the Nottingham School of Veterinary Medicine in 2012. Jess has worked in equine veterinary practices in Lancashire and North Yorkshire ever since, including undertaking an internship at Rainbow Equine Hospital. She enjoys all aspects of her role in clinical practice, including ambulatory and clinic-based work, and also has a passion for client communication and education, and staff training. Outside of work she enjoys baking, Italian cuisine and spending time outdoors with friends and family.
Abby - Staff Writer
Abby has been riding since she was a child. Getting her own horse as a teenager, she hasn’t looked back since. She has recently gained a first-class honours degree in Equine Science. She focused on equine nutrition throughout her studies, as well as horse and rider exercise physiology.
She is a journalist and feature writer for Everything Horse, as well as manging regional content for Everything Horse Cheshire. She is currently embarking on a degree in Physiotherapy too, hoping to further her knowledge and help the development riders and their horses.
