At Cross Country Style we only stock the best equestrian brands for you and one of these is Shires Equestrian. It would be a hard task to find a professional equestrian rider who had never heard of the brand Shires Equestrian as they are very popular amongst the equestrian market. They stock high quality equestrian supplies and have over 40 years of experience which puts them in the running for being one of the best equestrian brands around today.
Shires Equestrian was established in 1968 as Malcom Ainge, the founder of the brand, had £200 and took out a £1000 loan in order to buy stock. He already had previous experience within the equestrian market as he worked at Barretts, also makers of equestrian gear, and rode horses himself. He got both sides of the service as he also bought and tested equestrian supplies when he worked at Barretts as well as working for them – this made him familiar to the whole process and could be a contributing factor to his success today.
They are based in Leominster which is just north-west of Worcester where they employ around 60 people at their main warehouse. Despite this, they have employees all around the world with over 350 in China who work in their two factories manufacturing all their goods. When they first started out, the centre of the equestrian industry was Walsall and they made and sold most of their products. The brand has no doubt come a long way since they began as they are now being recognised all around the world as a fantastic equestrian brand.
Shires Equestrian manufactures all sorts of equestrian gear that you could possibly think of for people of all ages and genders. Lucky for you, we also stock men’s, women’s and children’s equestrian gear from Shires Equestrian in a variety of colours and styles so there is always something to fit everyone’s unique personality. They make 200,000 horse blankets every year and they have begun to supply many more equestrian products to everyone who has a taste for the equestrian lifestyle.
All of their products are brilliant quality and have durability for all year round. They are excellent in all weathers and we stock them at affordable prices. View our collections of Shires Equestrian chaps and gaiters and Shires Equestrian show jackets online today from Cross Country Style.
