Time to shine

STAND OUT: Maybe now is the time to invest in a new show jacket or breeches, so you can stand out and shine just like your horse. (FW26-500NN)

THINGS are starting to return to a new normality, with the further easing of lockdown restrictions; both lessons and competitions are allowed to go ahead, as long as we maintain our social distancing and hygiene practices. Some of these competitions may be held online or for some of them, you may be allowed to travel to a venue as you would have normally.

Either way, you will want both you and your horse to be looking and feeling fantastic. Old Mill Saddlery stock a wide range of grooming products to remove those stubborn stains or add extra shine to your horses’ or ponies’ coats.

The products that our customers buy time and time again are the Smart Tails Combs, available in both fine and coarse; LeMieux Hands on Grooming Gloves; Leovet 5 Star Detangler and Lincoln Total Groom. For horses who want to stand out in the show ring, we have a finishing spray by Natural Animal Feeds (NAF) called Razzle Dazzle Spray, which gives your horse that extra sparkle – especially in the sunshine!

We also stock a full range of Clippers and Trimmers from leading brands, such as Wolseley and Liveryman for those furry monsters that may need a little bit more than a brush to get them looking smart and tidy again.

If you have been lucky enough to save some money over the last few months, then maybe now is the time to invest in a new show jacket or breeches, so you can stand out and shine just like your horse. With choices from brands, such as Equiline, Pikeur and Horseware, we are confident that we have show gear to match all styles and budgets.

If you don’t want to update all of your show kit, then small changes can be made to give it a new lease of life, such as a new stock, new gloves or a new whip that isn’t tattered or frayed. At Old Mill Saddlery, we have an on site workshop dedicated to making our whips by hand, even the ProCush Show jumping whip, which is compliant with the regulation that British Show jumping released in January.

If you would like to view any of the products mentioned above or the rest of our range, you can go to our fantastic new website: www.oldmillsaddlery.com or visit us in our newly refurbished superstore. We have implemented a one-way system in the store and a hand sanitising station is located when you enter the premises to keep both our customers and staff safe. Our new opening hours are shown below and, if you need any further information, we can also be contacted on 028 9335 3268.
