About Us

Emma

image48

I have owned horses since I was a child and still do 30+ years later!  I train and compete regularly in the central belt of Scotland.


After years of mending my own rugs, thanks to one particular horse who likes to pull rugs off his field mates... in pieces(!), I upgraded to an industrial machine and have become proficient at rug repairs.  I am also naturally thrifty so always keen to repair, rather than replace!  I have also since trained in sewing leather goods too.


With the lack of a quality rug wash in my area, I invested in a commercial machine so that I could keep on top of my own yard full of rugs, which quickly blossomed into the business we have today.

Top Tips on Rug Care

1. Don't use laundry detergent

Do not wash your rug yourself using ordinary detergent as you will destroy the waterproof qualities of your rug. Detergent removes waterproofing products that the rug may retain and it may also break down the waterproof membrane that is applied to the inner surface of outdoor rug material. 

2. Pressure washing rugs is bad!

Pressure washers can destroy the waterproof membrane on the inside of the rug material, making it useless as a turnout rug. Also, pressure washing pushes the dirt into the rug, so whilst the outside looks clean, the dirt is just sitting out of sight. 

3. Storing your rugs

Make sure your rugs are dry before you fold them up and put them away.  Many rugs have cotton or non synthetic linings, when stored damp mildew will literally eat the linings out of a rug. 


If you can, store them somewhere dry and warm and avoid keeping them in plastic bas.  If you do, make some holes in the bag.

4. Bio detergents can irritate your horse

You should not use biological washing detergents on any horse-wear as these can result in a skin allergy.
