Yes everyone is now starting to either love it or hate it, personally i love it, all i need now is that ice cold beer.....
Its been a flying week so i'll get straight to it, the lovely Kim has been updating the Facebook page with lots of ideas, new products and look out for more information about the prize draw we are having in-store.
BZZZZZZZ: We all wait for what seems like ages for the lovely weather to come and then we are plagued with the pesky flies that just seem to be out in force at the moment! Not only do we have fly rugs, fly masks and fly repellents (click to take you to webpage) we do also have some lotions and potions which contain citronella to help with the flies.
The Nettex range are a great range, have used these personally on my own horses. They have a no rinse wash which you can use after exercise and just add to water, a coat spray to help repel dirt and gives the coat a lovely shine as well as fragrance. There is also the fly repellent/citronella shampoo from Nettex and Supreme products.
Anything that can help to make the flies just a bit more bearable.....
So if any of the above doesn't work, we do have
****** BACK-UP FLY PLAN *****
We ask you (our) customers which works best? simply purchase the Nettex Fly repellent Advanced DEET based Spray @ the discounted price of £12.99, if that doesnt work then you've got the fly squatter as a back-up plan FOC (free of charge) so one of them is bound to work.
Disclaimer: Please note that the fly squatter must not be used as a weapon as it may cause injury.

I think Kim is thinking of Christmas already.... Tis' the season.......
We're in JULY KIM!!!
Tis’ the season for competing and sponsored rides....
We are all suffering with the hard ground and god forbid I say it, would love just a bit of rain! However equally enjoying the glorious sunshine. ☀️☀️😎😎
Lots of sponsored rides and competitions going on at the moment, we all want to keep our horses cool and look after their legs especially with this hard ground.
We have some lotions to help us out. Carr Day & Martin have a cooling gel and a lavender rinse to aid with cooling tired legs down. I’ve personally used the cooling gel after sponsored rides and it works a treat once we get back to the lorry. Simply wash the legs down after taking all your boots etc off and apply a layer of this to the legs and it instantly cools the legs. We have other lotions and potions to help as well.
Another great tip I’ve had which worked a treat on my last sponsored ride was to dunk a waffle type cooler rug in a bucket of water and put straight on your horse, while you are getting all your stuff together your horse stands nice and cool in this heat!
Don’t forget when your horse sweats, you need to replace the minerals lost. We have a couple of brands that do electrolytes which can both be added to their water and/or feed before and after events.
If there is any other lotions and potions that you find work a treat for this time of year, please let us know and we will do our best to try and get them.
Do you have any other tips and tricks you guys use at competitions etc for cooling down please do feel free to share!
Further to our post above we have just had some of this Green Ice come in from Equine America. I’ve bought some of this today as we’ve got quite a few competitions/sponsored rides coming up so I like to get stocked up. We’ve got 2 different sizes in stock, 1 litre at £16.99 and 2.5 litre at £27.99.
We do try our upmost to put as much information as we can on our website as there are few customers that don't do social media, but sometimes events happen and it gets put behind. Also with it being a family run business, life takes over, children poorly, etc, so our apologies if you've missed out on a promotion / deal / offer.
The blog is now being updated on a fortnightly basis to give a more detailed list of events or offers.
Good Luck to you all who are competing, showing eventing etc,
be safe and keep cool in this heat

With eventing season well & truly in full swing, you want to take extra care of your horses legs. Especially with the hard ground we are experiencing at the moment. We have a few pairs left of the Aerochill boots.
Evaporative Cooling helps increase recovery time, cools body tissue and regulates outer thermal temperature. Aerochill Cooling Boots are also quilted which ensures that evaporation and therefore cooling occurs over a longer period of time.
Aerochill evaporative cooling products use a non-toxic, super-absorbent polymer fibre, this evaporative cooling technology is used all over the world by elite clients including Formula One drivers, athletes and Military Special Forces to keep them cool.
The Aerochill Cooling Boot is designed to the shape of a horses's leg and fetlock so that it will help support and help reduce typical after-workout swelling. Suitable for front and hind legs.
The Aerochill Cooling Boot can be re-activated over and over agaIn by simply soaking in cold water.
Aerochill technology is built into the actual fabric of the product so its cooling power won't diminish overtime, unlike other gel-based cooling technologies.
We have 3 sets left; 2 medium and 1 small at a very reasonable price of £39.99.

New Products - Its been a day of matchy, matchy & Mustard take a look below.....
New rugs have come in from Shires. We have a brand new waffle available at just £34.99. It’s super lightweight which is perfect for after exercise or washing. The waffle fabric traps the air which prevents the horse from chilling and the hard wearing polyester dries quickly and keeps to its shape. Other benefits include blanket set chest straps, adjustable surcingles and a fillet string.
Only available in Blue
We also have a fleece/mesh cooler which is ideal for after exercise and comes in red/navy/grey or royal/pink/grey. The mesh allows the air to circulate whilst the fleece section on the back wicks away the moisture and helps to regulate the temperature to prevent chilling. All this at a very reasonable price of £32.99.
These we will be stocking on a regular basis
LeMieux - Another matchy matchy base layer and hat silk colour arrived in from LeMieux, Black/Grey.
Rather smart I think!
We now have all LeMieux hat silks and matching base layers available in store and they are selling fast. Great for the matchy matchy enthusiasts! Base layers £39.95 and hat silks £19.96.
Staying with LeMieux.....
To go with all the matchy matchy base layers and hat silks, Le Lieux have brought out polo shirts to match! Great for the Spring/Summer! Available is XS/S/M/L and at a very reasonable price of £29.99
Pro Sorb Memory Foam Half Pad - A brand new memory foam half pad which encourages the saddle to ‘bed down’ naturally to the horses shape which allows effective shock absorption and pressure distribution. Comes complete with additional shims to allow for more adjustment. The pad can be used with or without these.
Available in 3 elegant colours; navy, black and grey. They come in one size which will fit up to an 18” saddle and can be used for GP, CC and dressage saddles. What’s great as well, they can be machine washed on a 30 degree cycle (they do advise on using a wash bag to protect the pad and your washing machine!).
The price on these is £69.95
They are here !!!!
Mustard - Discontinued by LeMieux and made just for us and you of course!!!
Back by popular demand and just for us here at Two Times Tack. The lovely people at LeMieux delivered us all sizes on all pads (CC, GP and Dressage) and we also have the full size bandages too! All pads are £29.99 and the bandages are £19.99. Available to buy online shop or from us in-store. (Delivery charge through the shop is £4.99)
***Attention all CORAL RED fanatics***
We are no longer able to get hold of Coral Red from LeMieux due to the colour being discontinued. We do however still have limited pads in the shop which will go quickly. We have 2 large GP, 1 large CC and 1 large dressage pad left at £39.95. We also have a few matchy matchy items to go with them - polo bandages (pony size) at £19.99 and support boots at £32.50 (3 pairs of large left). These are not available on our website but they are in our shop
***Update 2/6 the pads have all sold now***
Turmergold has proved very popular since we started getting this in. We now have an additional size in stock of 1.5kg in at £8.99. This is a great all round supplement for joint support. Additional sizes include 950g, 3kg and 6kg
This product is a valuable bit of kit to have! Silver salve from Leovet contains pure silver which have an antiseptic affect and suppress bacterial growth. High quality plant oils provide dry skin with moisture. I used this on my boy when his mud fever was on its last stages and it worked a treat! It’s worth the money for £8.90!
Supreme Products - Showing season is well and truly upon us and we all want our horses looking the best in the show ring. We have a wide selection of products to pamper our 4 legged friends but for that real edge in the show ring Supreme try to cater for every need. All available in the shop. If we haven’t got exactly what you want we can always look to see if we can get what you need. A member of staff has personally used the shampoos and they bring a lovely shine to the coat.
We’ve waited months and months for the warmer weather and lighter evenings. However, there is something we all hate at this time of year and that’s the dam flies and horse flies!
So we want a bit of help from you, we’ve listed all the fly repellents that we have in the shop and they are numbered. Let us know which one you use and rate as the best one for your horse. We appreciate what works for one doesn’t always work for another but we want to try and stock what people use the most and we value our customers opinions. Equally if there is something we don’t stock that you use we are always happy to try and source it where we can!
One of our members of staff uses 4, 11 and 13 and all do a pretty good job. Phaser does seem to do a dam good job when they've been out on sponsored rides!
Shires are hot on the tail for matchy matchy enthusiasts! They have some lovely base layers available in 3 eye catching colours and intricate detail on each colour with matching hat silks. The base layers are available in both children’s and adults sizes. Adult base layers are £32.99 children’s are £26.99. The matching hat silks are £13.99
