Silks Equestrian – Are we different to any other equestrian retail website?

Well we’d like to think so!

Firstly to introduce myself, Shere Kettlewell.

I have been riding now for over 20 years after initially having to overcome my fear of horses! I have also worked for small, medium and large corporate businesses. This is now where I combine my passion for horses in a business environment to get the best of both worlds.

About us

My horse is Alfie, an 11 year old Irish horse. He is great and loves to be busy! He also has a very important role as demo horse in a number of my blogs and vlogs to come.

So, my idea for this website was to be somewhere to go for; yes great equestrian products for you and your horse; but more importantly a great source of advice and information. Wouldn’t it be great for a site to regularly contribute product reviews, horse care advice and training ideas?

My mission is to provide you with information on the products I offer to help you make the right choice first time. I also want to be the place you look for “how to” advice whether that is “How to plait a mane” or “How to apply a poultice” etc, giving you information about how to use the products to get the most from them.
