Riders who love a bargain, take note — Aldi has launched its latest equestrian “Specialbuy” range.
Products are available now to pre-order online, with the range landing in stores on Sunday (21 October).
The supermarket announced the range in its newsletter yesterday (16 October), allowing riders to pick up some bargains ahead of winter.
Items available include a stable rug (£24.99), combo turnout rug (£34.99), ladies’ jodphurs £12.99) and winter gloves (£6.99).
A saddlecloth (£8.99), headcollar (£4.99), lead rope (£4.99) and riding socks (£3.99) are also available.
Although local tackshops’ experience is invaluable, and their ranges cater for all equestrian needs, the Aldi products are ideal for riders looking for a bargain.
Both the red Crane turnout rug and navy Crane stable rug have a 200gsm mediumweight filling with adjustable surcingles and fillet string. The gloves, which boast reinforced fingers and elsasticated wrist straps, are both breathable and waterproof and have been described as “super durable and practical” for both riding and yard duties.
The limited-time special offers also include a range of country clothing, with men’s and ladies’ quilted jackets (£24.99), wellies (12.49), and a selection of jumpers, fleeces, and gilets available from £9.99.
