Super Stable Yard Equipment for Winter

stable yard products HySHINE Active Groom Bucket Cleaner Brush

Looking for stable yard equipment to help you get through the winter? Then look no further…

Some of us (the crazy ones) look forward to the winter. With astonishing amounts of mucking out on the offer, early mornings, cold weather and getting soaked wet through… what’s not to look forward to? Whilst others (the ‘sane’ bunch) dread it. Either way, we often find ourselves needing to replace items of stable yard equipment to help us through the winter, save us time and above all allow for a smooth running of every yard visit.

Here we round up a selection of stable yard equipment to help point you in the right direction when it comes to purchasing items around the yard.

Stubbs Hookie

A hook over the door …. hook, with two prongs which are great for hanging lead ropes, hoods, jackets, whips and so much more!

The Stubbs Hookie fits over most stable doors (top and bottom) or is also ideal for the tack/feed room use.

Reversible design, so it doesn’t matter which way around you hang it, the Hookie is made of hardwearing steal that’s covered with Stubbs ‘stubbyfine’ coating.

Colours are randomly allocated.

Available for £5.99 via Viovet, VISIT VIOVET PAGE HERE
