I am delighted to introduce our new brand Finer Equine. Finer Equine is a small luxury equestrian business run by Sarah Clarke.

Sarah designs and manufactures her products in the UK & has the highest standards for each item.

About Sarah

I caught up with Sarah to ask her a few fun questions about herself & Finer Equine:

1. What made you start Finer Equine?

I had purchased a beautiful new saddle which came with a thin fleece cover, knowing how much it would travel I lined it with a thick faux sheepskin and added girth loops to ensure it was properly protected. Following a nasty fall leaving me unable to ride or work for some time, I decided to take my idea to market and haven’t looked back since!

2. Which is your favourite product from Finer Equine?

This is a tricky one! My Stirrup Covers save the most time spent cleaning tack, especially through the winter when stirrup treads get the saddle so dirty!

I am most proud of our Ride On Exercise Sheet. It is the first design of its kind in the world, keeping your saddle fully covered and protected while riding and is slip resistant too. My summer weight lives in the trailer for those unexpected show showers and is BD legal!

3. Tell us about your horse

Hamlet (also know as the Labrapony) is an oversized Labrador! He would curl up at the end of your bed given half a chance and is extremely food orientated! He is Negro x Jazz and we do dressage together currently competing at Elementary level and hoping to go to the National Championships again.

4. What’s your favourite food?

Cheese, preferably washed down with wine!

5. Tell us a secret!

Not many people know but I was Northern Ireland’s ladies and pairs Figure Skating Champion 5 times in total!

6. If you could have dinner with anyone alive or dead who would it be and why?

I love to laugh so I think Joan Rivers quick and dry sense of humour would be great fun over some cheese and wine!

I am delighted to introduce this natural & highly effective leather care brand, Sterling Essentials.  Having searched for a long time to find a natural cleaning range I finally came across this lovely small company.

Based in the US, Teal from Sterling Essentials started making her own tack cleaner after her horse kept coming out in hives everytime she cleaned his tack.

This lovely range is gentle on even the most sensitive skin. It contains food grade materials and theraputic grade essential oils. So not only do the products smell amazing they also work beautifully.
