Equestrian Connect™ was conceived by two frequent hunter/jumper exhibitors, Barbara Phillips and Simone Coxe. After years of repetitively filling out horse show forms, they knew there had to be a better way.
Equestrian Connect’s goal is to use the web to create value for horse show exhibitors both before and after shows. The first service provides the quick and easy creation of accurate, legible paper entry forms. The company uses the actual entry forms from each horse show.
The web service was launched in California in December 2009, and has received praise from professionals, amateurs and horse show managers alike. The company began marketing its service on the east coast in July 2010, and was available in all USHJA zones in the second half of 2011.
Equestrian Connect LLC is based in Menlo Park, California. Barbara rides with John French of Waldenbrook Farm and Butch and Lu Thomas at Willow Tree Farms. Simone rides with Duncan McFarlane and Helen McNaught of Outwoods Farm.
