Horse & Hound Approved

When it comes to buying new gear for or you and your horse, whether it’s waterproof breeches or lightweight turnout rugs, the wealth of choice can make it a bit of a minefield so we’ve created “Horse & Hound Approved”.

We are proud to be your first port of call when it comes to giving you an insight into how items perform, fit and last – and how well they stand up to the competition. We believe that any product should be easy to use, look good and operate effectively, while also providing value for money and proving strong and robust enough to stand the test of time.

The quality of Horse & Hound’s reviews and buyers’ guides is built upon a rigorous and independent testing procedure combined with the knowledge and experience of the team. We are a team of real riders and owners, and have a sterling reputation in the industry, known for delivering the key points you want to know in a concise and easy-to-digest way. Manufacturers can’t pay for a good review – we’ll tell you how we see it.

Products that not only pass the test but impress us enough to score top marks after the complete test period, are awarded our “Horse & Hound Approved” recommendation, welcoming them into a very exclusive club. This allows us to recognise more of the greatest products on the market and will help equestrians choose the best products for themselves and their horses.
