Welcome to Horse & Hound’s buyers’ guides. We publish two main types of buyers’ guide on the website.
Our most popular buyers’ guides bring together our independent user tests of a particular type of equestrian product, such as riding gloves, show shirts, exercise rugs or brushing boots. All of the items in each group test are sent to a professional yard to be put through their paces in a real-life intensive situation. Our testers range from professional riders and trainers, to busy yard managers. Our testers then feedback their thoughts and opinions on the products, which we publish as individual product reviews and bring together on our group test pages. The reviews include links to the products on the relevant brand’s website. Sometimes these allow you to buy direct, but not always. H&H does not earn any money from these links.
The other type of buyers’ guide that we publish focus on suggesting ideas for great gifts around specific occasions, such as Christmas, Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day. These gift guides typically take you to stores where you can order the product directly. H&H may earn a small amount of affiliate revenue from the retailer when you buy via one of our links on these articles. It will be clearly stated if this is the case. We also promote special offers at specific times of year such as January Sales and Black Friday, but typically these guides do not include links that earn H&H affiliate revenue.
