I say Buckets..... you say what?? Posted on 23 Aug 18:58 , 0 comments

Sitting here as i write this thinking to myself why? it's the first thing that pops into my head as im looking around the shop, yes we have hundreds of them, look further down to find out why......

So the heat wave is giving us a break for the time being, hence the wet stuff has been making a show (i was forgetting what it looked and felt like) so without further ado lets see whats been going on and what new stuff Kim has come across in the shop.....


HoovesThis hard ground is doing no favours for our horses feet. I recently bought this stuff for my horses hooves and seen an improvement already after just a few days. I had a customer come in to the shop recently who applied this with a sponge to their horses feet and the residue which was still on their hands has made their nails stronger so it’s got to work! It’s in the 1ltr tub and it’s £14.35. Well worth the money! 👍

Continuing with hooves -  We’ve got brands such as Effol, Cornucrescine and Kevin Bacon all that have really good, proven results! We also have a hoof supplement by Cornucrescine which can be added to the feed to help the horses within! 6kg tub for £34.99 which is good value! 


Biotin is also great for the hooves and Equine America have got a great value bag of 2kg for £15.99



Fly Products:  Fly fringes and fly masks have gone out so quickly, most of our suppliers are struggling with the high demand this year but we’ve managed to get some! We’ve just had some more fly fringes come in which are elasticated in cob and full. We’ve also just had some cob fly masks (full nose) arrive. The fly fringes are £7.99 and the fly masks are £16.99.


  • We recently had a customer in requesting this and after hearing all about it we thought it was worth a try in the shop. This is a high quality skin and coat conditioner which can be used on all minor cuts, abrasions, bites and stings. It can be used on ponies which are prone to skin conditions such as sweet itch, mud fever and rain scald and even as a insect repellent for horse and humans. A bargain at £7.50 for 500ml


  • Clearance fly masks in pony and small pony only £5 each online only (not available in-store)


  • Fly repellent sales have gone through the roof, the offer with the Extra Strength Fly Repellent from Carr Day & Martin has now sold out. We have managed to stock up on some other brands and keeping topped up with the best seller Phaser. Think this has been a one of our record sales with all things fly related! I know we love the fact that we’ve had this lovely weather but our poor horses really have suffered. 🐴🐴🐎🐎 lets enjoy the relief of some cooler weather! 🙌🏻🙌🏻




Sweet-Itch - It’s that time of year when sweet itch is causing our horses stress and discomfort. This supplement contains a unique blend of chamomile, burdock root, nettle and garlic granules which can be added to the feed and will help to keep your horses feeling comfortable from the inside. We have this in stock here at the shop at £12.45 for 1kg.




1st-Aid - This is a great bit of kit for your first aid kit. Used for dressing of wounds and forms a film of protection against sweat, urine, water and other damaging influences. Recently in stock in the shop at £9.99

Look what’s finally arrived......

I always love new stock arriving from Le Mieux and after the response we had on Facebook after we announced the new range hoping you will be excited to see it’s finally arrived. I personally think it’s a very elegant range and I’m a little bit in love with the plum. 

We have the dressage and CC pads, just awaiting arrival of the GP but we have the matching fly veils and bandages. 

CC/Dressage Pads £54.95
Fly veils £29.95
Bandages £29.95

What do we all think?  —  feeling excited.


Here at 2x Tack we do love our Le Mieux and we got a new delivery this week on colours that we were missing on various pads. We have tried to make sure we have a good selection of the larger and smaller sizes. What better to way to tell you what we have is by showing you the colour range!





We came in one morning and found Derek with a bucket on his head and who can blame him in this weather!

*** New In Today!! ***

I know we don’t want to admit defeat that the cold might be on its way but we have to be a bit prepared and I don’t know about anyone else but I’ve enjoyed curling up in my duvet for a change for the last couple of days and we’ve finally had some rain! ☔️☔️ hooray!! 

So to help us get a bit warmer, check out these lovely hoodies. For those that shop with us regularly, we had some lovely bright polo shirts from the same company. These hoodies are in lovely colours: navy, grey, pink and purple and a real bargain at £34.99. So nice I’ve bought one myself already!

  Grab them while they are here!
