Made in Britain!

After a miserable (weather wise!) Bank Holiday we are busy looking forward to our upcoming buying shows and choosing the final new products for our 2014 Horse Diva gift collections.  Whenever possible we try and support British businesses and we thought you might like to know about some of our favourite Made in Britain equestrian products, so here are just a few of Britain's best buys (in our opinion anyway!).

Our popular horsey gifts from Angelic Hen are hand crafted in their workshop in the grounds of Wyastone Lets, in the Wye Valley.   The range of horsey themed products from Angelic Hen includes one of the first products we sourced when launching TheHorse Diva - the Gone Riding and Mucking Out Door Hangers and these remain one of our best sellers to this day.

Looking to some of our newer ranges, the fun collection of Coolhorsesocks offers a British Manufactured everyday horse riding sock as well as an equestrian competition sock that has been tried and tested by ourselves in all weather conditions, equestrian disciplines and multiple scenarios.  Available in many fun and funky designs and complete in smart packaging the Coolhorsesock range makes a great gift for the female horse owner.       

Our beautiful range of horse and pony themed mugs feature many that are made within the UK.  You can't help but smile at the Bean Riding Mug from The Compost Heap.  Their coordinating greetings cards also feature similar images and are chlorine free, recycled and printed on pulp from renewable forests as well as being printed using vegetable inks!  For other equestrian mug ideas the Splimple range are all best sellers and are all made at Jersey Pottery.   

One of our favourite new collections to take on this year is that from Milly Green.  Milly is a UK based designer who has recently expanded her range of products to include cosmeticsbags, pencil cases, notebooks and more.  Beautifully made in the UK each item has this proudly written on the label. 

We hope you like our favourite British designs and will join with us in buying British this year!  If you know of any other equestrian products or horsey gifts made in Britain that you think will be suitable for our website please do get in touch, we'd love to hear from you.
