We cover the South East & offer an extensive range of new, seconhand & synthetic saddles & can fit most shapes & sizes.
We've been doing the Donatello long boots by Tredstep for a while now, and they are still firm favourites among our customers. Priced at under £200 and with a variety of calf widths, they are very comfortable and smart, and great value for money. Team them with a pair of the Tredstep Pure Ultra Cool silk long socks for a sleek competition finish.
It’s been a couple of months since I updated my blog, mostly because I’ve been doing a lot of soul searching over young Scarlet. My last post covered the amazing clinic we did at Firle with Francis Whittington in September, where for the first hour she behaved appallingly and it was only due to the fact that I have a life threatening amount of pride that I didn’t just get off and go home.
Earlier this month I took Scarlet to Firle for a cross country clinic with Francis Whittington. The course was open for schooling for a few days after the BE event, so it seemed like a great opportunity to school over some BE90 fences. I signed up and asked to be put in the group people doing 80/90, and emphasised that we were green and wanted to build confidence as a partnership after a year and a half out of action.

Initially people used to ride horses bareback without the saddles. But when it comes to comfort, competitions or hunting going bareback is out of question. Obviously for these purposes saddles are absolutely necessary. Choosing the right saddle for the right occasion is of utmost importance...
With every Christmas there is always a welcome rise in the sales, which is definitely a good thing for us! This year has been no different. There were quite a few items that were very much in demand this year. The Cavallo Abbey quilted jacket was the hot favourite amongst the ladies this time. This quilted jacket continues to be a winner in the New Year sales and has been the hottest selling item.
More & more riders are changing their headware over to the newer styles such as Uvex. Very popular abroad, they are now selling well in the UK. Incredibly lightweight & well ventilated, we are seeing them on all riders from small children to top Olympic riders. With prices starting from under £60, there is a hat for everyone
Finding the right kind of saddle is of utmost importance for a comfortable riding experience. Once you know the shape of your pony it is easy to find the right kind of saddle. There are different kinds of saddles meant for different shapes of horse and for different riding activities.
Regular exercise is a must for horses no matter what is happening and how bad the weather is. It is not good to go without some or the other form of exercise for your horse. Even during wet weather, hot summers or the cold winters there is always the need to exercise your horse. In the wet weather riding can be uncomfortable as it is difficult when you are soaking wet. But sometimes you just have to go in the wet and there is no way round it!
