Let Your Customers Drive You Mad

If you have been considering supplying equipment to the expanding driving market there really is no better time to get involved. Especially now that there is a competitively priced range of products available ideal for the new and novice driver which can help.

From an extensive collection - a brand respected the equine-world over - renowned for its quality and value comes an economical driving harness that is light-weight and extremely tough. It is also extremely user-friendly as it can be easily adjusted in all weathers and from both sides of the horse. It is also soft and flexible to handle and all parts can be machine washed to ensure that it always looks as good as the day it was bought.

Harnesses aside, there are plenty of other products to stock that are guaranteed to be top driving sellers. For instance, harness waffle liners - the removable liners that save the harness itself from becoming tarnished by sweat and dirt - are always in demand amongst fans of driving.

With the dual virtues of being easily cleaned and extremely useful, the harness waffle liner is also ideal for 'new to work' horses which are prone to be more vulnerable to rubs; during this time of year this doubly beneficial as it prevents the patchy look to the coat of the horse which is caused by rubbing directly under the wear points of the harness.

The waffle harness liners are also suitable for protecting any type of harness and can also be used to safeguard saddles, girths and breastplates.

Underhalters are another essential for all drivers. Designed to be worn discreetly under a driving bridle these slim-line pieces of equipment are also ideal for turning the horse out in the field as well as wearing in the stable. Indeed, some driving clubs deem it compulsory for drivers to have one for safety reasons.

Why not take the opportunity to provide your customers with other integral items of driving gear which may not be stocked elsewhere. For instance, competition number holders - the essential piece of identification for drivers who are keen to get out and compete. Also, you can supply driving gloves which are a must for the customer who desires a superior driving experience. Driving bits too are essential in catering exactly to the needs of the horse. In fact, with so many different parts to carry and look after a harness bag is every bit as the important as the equipment it can contain. After all, nobody wants to see their harness being dragged along the ground and through the mud.

With a complete range of other accessories such as noseband hangers, rosettes, terrets, helmets, training and corrective items as well as a host of tandem and team parts.
