Paterson Horse Rugs & Custom Gear is a 'Small business catering for the equine community creating custom bags and horse rugs made to order, offering repairs and washing facilities as well'. I was fortunate enough to locate these guys on Facebook when looking for a bag to pop my horses water bucket in when on the side of the float. Often I find myself trying to keep hay on the side of the float as well as a bucket of water rested somewhere nearby. I suffer with trying to keep the water in a safe place so it doesn't fall over - and then keeping stray hay out of the water. I usually come back to a bucket full of water - turned into a bucket full of soaked lucerne! So I chose these guys as I really liked their designs. As you can see in the image, my float has bars, so anything I buy, I like to be able to hang it off them.
I flicked them a message with pictures of other items they had made already and asked if I could have all three items made. It was not a problem at all and I was told I would be added into a book for next years orders. I even requested them to have straps that could go over the bars rather than clip onto rings. Nothing was too hard for Paterson Horse Rugs & Custom Gear!
Well this is how awesome they are, they made my items well and truly before they were going to be taking orders again for 2018! I received my orders a week after the new year began. Their customer service outstanding, sending me photos of my order when it had been made and letting me know it had been posted. On receipt of the bags, they are very strong and durable using canvas like we use on the horse float window covers. The binding and strapping is all heavy duty and long lasting. I myself as you know am a bit craft and sewing is one of my pass times. The quality is very high and I can't see these bags falling apart at all.
I am so happy with my bags and look forward to seeing their future products. If you feel like contacting them, go right ahead and mention you saw this review on our website!
KitBits began in 2017 when the owner decided to make rope tack after finding it far too expensive to purchase. KitiBits makes rope reins, halters, bitless bridles, hackamores, bitless nosebands, jewelry, dog leads and collars, lead ropes, breast plates, well anything you can think of that is able to be made of rope at very reasonable prices. I have been using KitiBits rope reins, a rope halter, dog collar, button fabric earrings, rhythm beads, hat bands, a flat bitless noseband and a leadrope. I have been using them for some time now and after throwing most of them in the wash and using them myself and on the horses and dogs I have had no issues with any fraying and they are still in completely excellent working use. I would recommend them to anyone who wants to inject some colour into their horse tack. You can choose your own colours, they are all completely custom and cheap! Everything is produced quite quickly and if anything isn't in stock it doesn't usually take more than 2 weeks for it to come in at the worst. 10/10 :D you can purchase items via the KitiBits etsy store http://www.etsy.com/shop/kitibits or via Facebook http://www.faceook.com/kitibits
