    Premier Equine Rugs and Neck Covers

    Well the rug set I want comes with a neck already and is £160, there is not an option without neck. It would then cost me a further £50 to buy a larger neck.....

    Premier Equine Rugs and Neck Covers

    I've been a customer of Premier Equine for 15 odd years now. One of the reasons I liked their rugs is that they would let me swap the standard size neck cover that comes with all the 6"6/6"3 rugs for a large one when I ordered. No matter what size of horse I had, the standard neck was too...

    How to build a secure tack room, help!

    We have just bought a place that has a small steel framed barn. I would like somewhere secure to leave my tack, I am thinking of having a breeze block tack room with a flat roof built in the interior of it. Has anyone done something like this or have a better suggestion? I just want somewhere...

    So how do you know if you horse has a balanced diet?

    Get your vet to do a full blood panel. If you have a free call out day even better. For £60 you can work from a factual basis rather than guess work.

    Tough turnout rug for rug ripper.

    Love them or hate them, I have had a rug ripper and bought Premier Equine Titans as they are 1680 D, the rug ripper couldn't rip it!! I have never bought one full price in the 8/9 years of using them, I wait for a sale (ideally Black Friday.....)

    Equitrek bubbling panels.

    I spent time looking over an Equitrek 3.5 lorry on display at Burghley this year. I was surprised at how poor the finish was on it - as Red-1 said above. I would have thought that the demonstrator they had for high footfall sales traffic would have been absolutely immaculate on principle. If...

    Best turn out pen

    Thank you, that was one of my concerns. They are really expensive to buy and then find out horse is even worse in it.

    Best turn out pen

    Horse is hard to keep in the field as he jumps out and has consequently injured himself badly making a partial escape. Need him in a high sided prison to aid recovery and quite possibly on an ongoing basis as he won't stay in a field.

    Best turn out pen

    I'm looking at getting a turn out pen for a recovering horse. Looking online at the different manufacurers they all seem much of a muchness. Would appreciate any feedback about best type and any issues you have had with them.
