    Inspired by Young Engineers, I have designed and manufactured trolleys for equine users to help them to carry equipment and speed up the process of loading a horsebox and ‘tacking up’ at equine events. Initially, I produced these to raise money for my Gap Year (where I travelled around Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, New Zealand and Fiji) and I now continue to market these in the UK. I am now looking into international sales opportunities.
