Reggie's Grand Day Out

It was a weekend of excess leg hair removal for Reggie, not Reggie's owner and Equetech MD Liz, washing and tidying of the giant 3 year olds magnificent gingerness and just general pre show day sprucing ‐ I'm sure we spend more time beautifying our horses than ourselves! His royal gingerness went from a slightly scruffy, "why can't I be a huge field ornament," to a resplendent vision befitting his incredible breeding which can be traced back to the 1600s. So, show day dawns with an early wake up call for Reggie who has a bemused yet disgruntled "I'm not a morning person" and "what is all the fuss about" look written all over his face. He decides he won't be the most compliant 3 year old t...

This season is all about accessories and crossover pieces. With varying temperatures, sunshine and showers (even snow!) it's difficult to decide what to wear. Scarves are a sophisticated year round wardrobe staple, ideal at keeping the winter chill away from the neck and the ultimate stylish accessory teamed with a lighter spring/summer outfit.

Product of the Week- Reversible Micro Gilet

Reversible Micro Gilet It's a difficult time of year in deciding what to wear for the day. Mostly we will start the day looking like we are off for a hike in the arctic or a cold rain forest; however, by the middle of the day we are regretting our choice of attire as the day warms up. The savvier of us have learnt either from experience or logic that layering is the way forward! Therefore one of the most useful items we can have in our wardrobe is a gilet. Equetech's Reversible Micro Gilet as the name suggests gives us two looks in one, ideal for those of us that like to change our image regularly. Depending on our mood, we can opt for the warm coral or cooler blue. This versatile Gilet is lightweight, allowing for freedom of...

Spring is only a few weeks away ‐ yippee! With the longer, warmer days approaching, our poor horses are being trimmed, spruced and prepped as our motivation to ride and go out competing increases. We will spend endless hours at the yard giving our beloved neddies the full beauty makeover, often forgetting about ourselves until the last minute! If we applied as much attention to ourselves as we do to our horses, we'd all be turned out like supermodels! Here at Equetech, we may not be able to give you a full beauty makeover, but our new collections will give your wardrobe a makeover. However, we realise that you may just want to buy one "statement" piece rather than a whole wardrobe makeover. Therefore we've created garme...

2017 is underway and goals have been set for the year ahead. The tradition of making unachievable New Year's Resolutions means that some of these will have already been broken whilst the more determined have yet to realise how futile these attempts will be! The even more resolute will realise their goals and as someone who never manages to get past a week (actually it's more like a day) before breaking a resolution, I for one salute you for your perseverance! Going back to work after the Christmas break was, I'm led to believe, depressing to some. However, here at Equetech HQ we couldn't wait to get our teeth into the New Year. We are flat out organising the warehouse for the new Spring/Summer Collection, visiting our ret...

What a year! 2016 has been a year some would like to forget and others wish to remember, a year of global turmoil and uncertainty but also a year which has proved that you can defy the odds and succeed with aplomb. After initially retiring 16 years ago after breaking his neck in two places, Nick Skelton gave equestrian lovers one of the most memorable moments at the Rio Olympics. The 58 year old is proof that age is not defining of the person, but hard work and a tenacious attitude is. Couple this determination with a horse you trust not only in temperament but also in ability and Olympic Gold can become a reality. We must not forget Nick Skelton's other achievements, coming a worthy third (although so many of us avid equestrians wan...
