Galloping to Hickstead with a HIAB, as Sussex Transport Make a Delivery of Goods to Worthing!

With a large fleet of vehicles, Sussex Transport can collect, deliver and store a multitude of loads, from the smallest courier delivery on a Sprinter van to a large shipping container on a HIAB truck!

Last week we collected plant machinery from Hickstead in West Sussex using one of our HIAB vehicles – ideally suited to lifting heavy goods with its on board crane – and delivered them for our client, to Worthing on the south coast.

Hickstead is home to The All England Jumping venue and was opened by Douglas Bunn, a multi-millionaire former barrister in 1960.  Bunn purchased a site known as Hickstead Place with the intention of creating a facility to match those in the United States and continental Europe. The venue now has six arenas, permanent seating for over 5,000 spectators and 26 corporate hospitality suites.

Hickstead was also the name of an Olympic Gold and Silver medallist show jumping stallion ridden by the number one rider in the world, Canadian Eric Lamaze. During his career, he won more than $3 million!

In 2010, Hickstead earned the title ‘Best Horse in the World’ at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games (WEG) in Lexington, Kentucky.

On November 6, 2011, at a competition in Verona, Italy, Hickstead collapsed shortly after finishing a round and died of a heart attack.  Eric Lamaze had praised his horse in 2006 saying ‘’He’s a great horse and a very good competitor. He’s got a great personality, and he’s a fun horse to ride because I know him so well. He’s feisty, he knows why he is out there, and he knows that knocking down a rail is not good!’’
