Heading up the EASYFIX equine sales and marketing initiatives for SafTfence is Managing Director Bill Price. Price has over forty year history working with horses, primarily thoroughbred race horses as an owner, trainer and rider. He is also co-Founder and co-Race Chair of the Queen’s Cup Steeplechase Races, a National Steeplechase Association (NSA) sanctioned Race Meet located in Mineral Springs, North Carolina. Bill also brings with him a strong background in jumps and flat racing.
Bill believes strongly in improving equine safety and his enthusiasm is infectious. With his background in equine sales, we are confident Bill will grow the EASYFIX brand throughout the United States. Safety to horse and rider has always been of strong interest to Price. In 2008, he began his own research on re-development of the hurdle in use by the NSA, since the early 1970’s. Bill’s observation of racing over fences prompted him to investigate alternative options. After a fair amount of trial and error along with hundreds of thousands of dollars later, as it turned out, EASYFIX had already developed an extensive range of hurdles and fences that were being used in Ireland, United Kingdom, France, Sweden, Czech Republic and Australia.
EASYFIX have also designed a wide range of rubber products to protect the horse while in the stall, stable or around the grounds. Price will actively offer the full range of EASYFIX hurdles, fences and equine rubber solutions. Most equine injuries and accidents occur within a stabling environment and EASYFIX has a go-to-market solution for all horsemen, regardless of discipline.”
