We have some super stop over shopping spots on the way over to the Pavillion to check your scores.
The Flying Horse team are very excited to be at the Harper Horse Coaches South Island Dressage Champs this year to showcase our unique grooming products.
With the arrival of our latest horse Charlie, we had to rethink what we used in grooming products as he is super sensitive. His nose was cracked and bleeding while his coat was dull and lifeless. He reacted to the shampoo we usually use and came out in huge welts which added to his discomfort.
So we decided to start making our own products. After sourcing the high quality ingredients we set to work making various potions and testing them on ourselves! No humans were harmed in the making of our products so we know they are safe for our precious horses!
Charlie is the proof that they work as he looks amazing now and his nose is covered in soft fur instead of being cracked and weeping. We now have customers throughout New Zealand, Australia and Europe so if you want a gentle yet affective grooming product that is proudly NZ made come and see us.
Look out for us in the Flying Horse Tradestand opposite the pavilion
