Pre Christmas Discount event is running till 30th November on all of our Saddle Pads!  

However, please be aware that our suppliers are still finding it hard to manufacture and send our products to us without lengthy delays 😕

Please do not place an order if you if you are not able to accept the potential for a delay.   We will do everything we can to process and delivery goods as soon as we can, but have very little control over some of the delays that are going on.   Thank you for your patience and understanding. 

It's a crazy world at the moment and we hope to return to better/easier days soon.🤞
