In 2020, we found ourselves in a pandemic. Events got cancelled and we were asked to distance ourselves from others.
This impacted the Eventing world through the printing out of competitors numbers. We found ourselves having to print/create our own numbers. This became disastrous when the printer broke, and we had to draw out and colour in our own numbers, which posed the next problem being difficult to read.
And so Bibnets was born, a simple lightweight black magnet attaching to a white board- simplistic, reusable and 100% waterproof.
Our eventing bibnets went down a storm with Tina Cook labelling them as ‘brilliant and so easy to use’. We introduced a personalisation option which proved to be very popular with people adding their name or their horse and personalising in any colour they wished.
A problem that occurred also due to Covid 19 regulations, was the idea that your number had to be presented in your vehicle windscreen. In response to this we created a Lorry board set, containing three boards and three sets of numbers.
Whilst we were overwhelmed with the positive response to Bibnets. We still believed that we could make riders lives easier, whilst still being sustainable. In which we introduced our showing range, which come with a full set of numbers to allow you to compose any number combination you wish. The protective sleeve with reinforced gold eyelets keeps number dry and clean, keeping the number in place yet still allowing easy access. Our showing Bibnets are offered with squared or rounded edges.
We also listened to our customers feedback and introduced Junior eventing Bibnets and baby showing Bibnets for our smaller jockeys. It was important for Bibnets to provide a product that could be used by all age ranges.
Presently we are stepping into the dog showing market with our dog showing numbers, in which we have two styles: the arm band Bibnet or our clip on Bibnet.
Bibnets have been labelled by many as being simple and easy to use, as well as easy to read from a jump judges perspective but don’t just take our work for it….
