  • Do I Need Horse Digestion Supplements?

    During the colder months, it’s vital that your horse is getting all the necessary nutrients to stay fit and healthy as it is during the winter that they are most prone to illness. Aside from the fact that colds and snuffles spread more easily at this time of the year, the lack of sunshine restricts both vitamin D production in horses and causes natural foraging material to become less nutritious. Introducing horse digestion supplements can help riders to keep their ponies in good health all year round.

  • Explained: Joint Supplements for Horses

    Taking care of a horse’s joints is important regardless of discipline, as they are heavy animals that spend most of their time on their feet. These elongated periods of standing up not to mention jumping, cantering or being ridden exerts stress on the horse’s joints, which act as shock absorbers and as a result become easily worn or damaged, often leading to very severe health problems. Joint supplements for horses can not only prevent serious damage and look after their general wellbeing but can extend their working, competing and everyday lives.

  • When to Use Horse Supplements

    What motivates horse owners to go out and buy horse supplements? Usually, it is an honest desire to make sure that our pony is being well cared for and is getting everything, they need, but while this motivation might be admirable, sometimes people institute supplements without assessing whether it is necessary. Providing that your horse is getting a well-balanced diet and plenty of exercises, it may not be necessary to supplement. There are, however, 2 main reasons that your pony may need additional vitamins and minerals. Continue reading

  • Autumnal Horse Rider Equipment

    Although most horse riders would like to bask in the complimentary conditions of Summer, the autumn and winter are fast approaching, so it might be time to update your horse rider equipment for the colder, wetter months. From upgrading your long boots to investing in a waterproof helmet, here are our top horse rider equipment picks for Autumn.

    HKM Boots

    While long riding boots can be stifling in the Summer, come Autumn they are the perfect footwear. Our HKM boots rise to just below the knee, keeping the rain from off the calves and shins, protecting jodhpurs from staining and keeping the rider warm. Designed with lacing, they are ideal for both competing and everyday yard wear and feature a non-slip sole, which is ideal in the wet and slippery conditions Autumn brings.

    Waterproof Helmet

    Suede-covered helmets are popular in the riding world, but they can be troublesome in Autumn and Winter. When exposed to water, suede deteriorates very quickly and becomes stained, frayed and heavy putting a strain on the helmet. With Autumn showers on the way, it’s best to hang up your suede helmet until spring and invest in a waterproof one instead. Our Rambo Classic Helmet is unique in its design with both leather and plastic components combining for ultimate waterproofing.

    Over Trousers

    Horse riders can’t help but be outside, with ponies to exercise and stables to clean, it’s very much an outdoorsy passion. Adverse weather conditions can’t get in the way of caring for horses, so Autumn is a good time to invest in some waterproof over trousers, for an extra layer of warmth and protection. Buying one pair of over trousers to add to your stocks of horse rider equipment can be a much more cost-effective approach than investing in multiple pairs of waterproof jodhpurs!

  • Choosing the Right Riding Equipment

    There is no one size fits all when it comes to riding equipment, with every different discipline having its own range of tools, clothes and accessories. But whether you’re into dressage, jumping, eventing or hacking the fundamental equipment is the same. Read our handy guide on selecting the right riding equipment to make sure you’re saddled up for the ride.

    Choosing a Saddle

    The sort of saddle you choose will depend on your primary riding style. For example, jumping saddles have a deeper seat and more padding around the knee to prevent rider falls when sailing over a jump, whereas general purpose saddles are not as specialised and so accommodate a wider range of disciplines. Regardless of your riding preference, a good saddle should comfortably fit the rider and the horse to ensure harmony and easy riding. This riding equipment comes in a range of materials, so it is also key to ensure that you opt for the right fabric that won’t irritate your pony or you.

    Choosing the Bridle

    Like a saddle your choice of bridle will also be determined by the equestrian discipline that you ride in. However, there are general bridles which are ideal for everyday riding and can withstand the occasional jump or dressage event. Finding a bridle that suits your horse and your needs is key, making sure to factor in comfort, style and control when choosing your bridle. You may have to try a few styles before settling on the right one as some horses can be particular about certain components such as bits.

    Choosing the Bit

    One of the most important decisions to make when it comes to riding equipment is what bit to use, or whether to use one at all. This tool is extremely important for communicating intent to your horse and thus should be chosen carefully. The range of bits can be confusing and range from a simple snaffle to more complicated bits that sit in the horse’s mouth, as well as hackamores. Which you decide to use will depend on your equestrian discipline, your level of riding, the shape of your horses’ mouth and how your horse was trained.
