Based in Lincolnshire, England – I have been designing and making show ring decorations for heavy horses since 2010. Specialising in flights, plaits, tail rings, mane rolls and neckbands, I make for heavy horse enthusiasts around the world and provide the most comprehensive range of colours and combinations from personal favourites to corporate colour schemes.
I have some original creations and traditional favourites. I also supply ribbons, raffia, mane tapes and other accessories for the show ring. Please have a browse and if you can't see what you are looking for or would like something unique - do contact me. I will do my best to make decorations to your own designs.
