As promised here are a few reviews of some products I have used and love!
Premier Equine International
I LOVE their products and I’ve become hugely obsessed with everything!
It started with the Merino Wool saddle pads and has escalated from there. Having tried other well known wool saddle pads and had them ruined in the wash, i thought i would give these a go and I have not been disappointed. They fit our saddles and horses impeccably well particularly my high withered sensitive backed thoroughbred. They also wash great and have not come apart like other brands have despite being washed numerous times. And lets not forget the amazing colours they have right now as well as the traditional colours.
Moving on from the full saddle pads I then purchased the Merino Wool half pads which
are equally as great and for those of us who like to switch up the colours of our saddle cloths then this is a great alternative to a full pad and they have a variety of colours. Again they wash brilliantly but as they are not directly on the horse they don’t need to be washed as frequently so they have become part of my daily tack wear.
The clothing for riders is classy and of great quality. I have purchased a few items for around the stables including the technical layers and fleece and actually won one of their instagram competitions receiving a beautiful Empoura Competition Shirt in Navy Blue. The fit is brilliant and super comfortable even on my arms which are pretty manly(!) and so sometimes sleeves can be a bit tight. Not only does it fit great but it looks super stylish under my navy Pikeur showjumping jacket so will most definitely be purchasing a similar one in the future.
I discovered this brand over a year ago and have fallen in love with the technical leggings so much so that i have 4 pairs. They are the most comfortable things i have ever ridden in and favour these over jodhpurs every day (apart from competition obviously!). The are super flattering and have a range of colours although I do favour the navy. I bought the limited edition leggings in khaki which come with a zip pocket which i think is a great addition as they other have nothing i can put my phone or money in however, the new leggings that have been released for SS17 do have an in built phone pocket but i’ve yet to buy these!
I got bought a lovely dark red base layer for my birthday from the husband and this has now become my cross country layer. I do find it slightly on the tight side so i would suggest going for one size bigger especially if you to are blessed(cursed!) with larger than average chesticles!
Next on my ‘to buy’ list from Aztec Diamond will be another baselayer which im thinking i’ll get in white and a pair of the jods. I fell in love with the mauve pair but it was coming up to Christmas when I saw them and I thought spending nearly £100 on myself instead of the husband may have been a bit bad!
