We were kindly sent these photos of the fleece exercise sheets that we made for race trainer François Nicole. The top image is fabulous. The execise sheets are made in red fleece, bound emerald and are half lined in red poly cotton under the saddle, this not only gives the exercise sheets more body but but also durability with the added benefit that sand or dirt can be brushed out of the folds. Our exercise sheets are made in uk to order in your colours.
Race trainers Olivier and Vanessa Sauvaget sent me these images of our jersey coolers on their race horses this spring. Their racing colours are mauve and emerald, mauve being the main colour of their racing silks. They were not sure about the emerald green at first as its a bit of a statement ( we don’t have many fabrics in mauve) but now they love it as you can spot them a mile away!!
These rugs are fantastic, they are wicking ( drying) so super as coolers, travelling and always look good so present well too. They dont crumple or pick up dirt.
The happy photo below was taken yesterday 9/06/2019 the horse on the right came 1st and on the left 3rd a good day out in wet heavy conditions.
This personalised race horse sculpture was ordered as a gift for a client who is very much involved in her horses race training she was so delighted with the finished article that she sent us some images.

Here are some photos sent in to us from a happy client of her navy melton exercise sheets, double bound in Cerise. We half lined these sheets in cotton under the saddle . The lining helps with wear and tear where the exercise sheets are being continually pulled and folded.
Our melton exercise sheets have been tried and tested they are made from a hard wearing felted wool mix. I started selling these 10 years ago, my first ever client bought 20 in 2009, at any one time over those years he has had between 60 to 120 horses in training. The sheets go out with at least with 6 lots a morning. My Client had the wither patched on four last winter, that is pretty good going. All our hand made horse rugs are made for us in the uk and the finish is always beautiful.
