Wheelbarrows for Tom McEwenPaul Newman
We are proud to announce a glowing endorsement of our equine yard wheelbarrows from highly regarded, young, British event rider Tom McEwen.
A talented young eventer, Tom most definitely has riding in his blood. He is following in the footsteps of his eventing parents, Bobby and Ali. Ali was a familiar face on the UK show jumping circuit, while father Bobby is a senior partner at The Valley Equine Hospital in Lambourn. His sister Ella is also an eventer and rode for the British Pony team in 2007 and 2008.
Having recently moved from Mark Todd’s yard at Badgerstown to Zara Tindall’s previous yard at Princess Anne’s home at Gatcombe Estate, Tom was in need of some durable and versatile wheelbarrows for the work being carried out at the yard. In the beautiful and impressive surroundings of Gatcombe Park, home to the Festival of British Eventing, Tom has a string of horses at varying levels up to 4*. On his horse Toledo de Kerser, Tom is certain to be a contender for selection to the Great Britain team for both the FEI European Eventing Championships in Strzegom, Poland in 2017 and the Tokyo Olympic Games in 2020.
Riding out of such a busy and active yard, a set of robust and effective wheelbarrows are essential for mucking out and other general jobs that need to be undertaken. Tom chose a selection of 160 litre twin fatboy wheelbarrows and 90 litre single wheelbarrows to get the work done and bring a splash of colour to proceedings. Tom’s yard staff wasted no time in putting the new recruits to work, moving bags of feed, shavings and hay, enjoying the benefits of increased tray capacity and the smooth motion of the bright yellow puncture proof tyres.
A warm welcome to the Wheelbarrows Direct team Tom, it’s great to have you on board!
