Our unique follow up service [which gives you 5 hat refits worth £50.00 for FREE] will keep you or your loved one, safe and comfortable during the life of the hat. 

This is what some of our customers have said about our hat fitting service:-

Nicki Miles
“Thank you for helping us today with a new riding hat, great customer service. we will return!”

Vicky Shambrook
“Thank you so much for the time and effort (and patience) spent on my hat fitting on Saturday, I wore both hats at the ODE on Sunday, and both were comfortable, and for the first time I didn't have to worry about my hat falling over my eyes. It was well worth trying on practically every hat in the shop to get the best fit. I would 100% recommend your hat fitting service to anyone thinking of getting a new hat, and when I need a new one again I'll have to plan a trip back to Dorset, because I don't think I'll be able to go back to straight off the shelf hats again :-)”

Spring warning! Is your horse dying to be turned out?

Is your horse dying to be turned out? There is a seasonal spike in colic caused by the significant change in diet from a mainly hay/haylage diet to grass.
