Blog from our friends at Clippersharp

 

We love connecting with other good companies and for recommending our customers too!

Clippersharp and Snuggy Hoods are based in the West of England and have several connections with each other. Both are family businesses, striving to promote continued excellence in product quality and service. We both upheld similar values across the board, albeit offering a different product range. We also support both Mary King and Team Harvey. Mary came to Clippersharp as a customer about 10 years ago, and then agreed to an association with us as a product sponsor, allowing us to provide her with all her clipping and grooming requirements. Over the years this relationship has deepened and we have been given access to her yard and horses for photo shoots and linked up with her and Horse and Hound to produce a series of Masterclass clipping videos.

Team Harvey is a Hertfordshire based Showing team, and again, through using one of their ponies for a product label for the Smart Grooming range of show prep products which we sell through our website, our association with them began. They also showcase the range of Snuggy Hoods to keep their horses and ponies clean and in tip top condition throughout the year.

Both Snuggy Hoods and Clippersharp, continue to entwine, as both companies have products that relate to horse owners needing their animals kept in great condition. Clippersharp specialises in clippers, trimmers and all clipping related products as well as the best in grooming and show prep products. We also sell the Snuggy Hoods neck warmers during the winter months, and can order in Snuggy Hoods for customers as required.

Choosing A Stable Rug

When choosing a stable rug there are a couple of things you need to know:

Often referred to as ‘night blankets’ stable rugs are designed to be worn when your horse is inside (stable or stalls) sometimes they are made from a more light weight fabric designed to keep the coat clean while some may be designed for warmth. Precisely for this reason we don’t expect them to face the same wear and tear as other rugs.
