Business revived as demand for equestrian workwear rises
A North Yorkshire business which was put on hold during the pandemic has been taken over by a local young entrepreneur who is reviving it to meet increased demand.
Northallerton-based Equithread supplies the equestrian industry – including yards at the northern racing hub of Middleham – with workwear and uniform.
Local businesswoman and professional horsewoman, Issey Gill, has taken over the business, which was initially started in 2019.
During the Covid-19 pandemic the business’s operations were suspended, but Gill has now relaunched the company with a new website and marketing campaign.
She said: “We’re a brand focused on building partnerships and providing a bespoke personalised service and I am astounded at the response we have had since the re-launch.
“Our state-of-the-art in-house production facilities, highly skilled artwork and production team, and strong relationships with suppliers means we can offer a reliable, all-round service.
“We are looking forward to investing heavily in a single head embroidery machine in the coming months.
“I’d like to say a massive thank you to customers new and existing for their continued support and I can’t wait to see what 2023 has in store.”
