LeMieux Schooling Boots Branded The Best by Mr Hester


Who doesn't love schooling boots? Especially when they're as smart as LeMieux's latest release. A purpose built boot, contoured to fit equine joints and tendons. With a polycarbonate strike proof shell that is integrated between shock absorbent lining.


Highly practical, they're quick and easy to whip on and off and totally up for the job. Be that training at home or in the competition warm up. Proven to withstand the demands of lateral work, they're a must have for dressage riders. Don't believe me...ask Mr Hester himself!

"The best schooling boots I've ever
put on my horses"
Carl Hester

1 moulds...2 flexes...3 supports...


The science is covered up by a leather outer shell, available in black and white. Trust me you'll want both and fastening securely with Velcro tabs. Like a magnet, they mould to the leg, strong and flexible they're up to the job, never restricting the movement. Once the work is over, any surface dirt can be easily wiped clean to return them to their original splendour.

Already a tack room treasure for Gee Gee and Me...with a white competition set on our wishlist.
Available from horsehealth.co.uk - £39.95 for two.

Beautiful Bespoke and Personal


My Horse Box are the best at seeking out the hidden treasures our equine world has to offer. Inside the subscription box from December I unwrapped a delightful dandy brush. March, a beautiful body brush and for June, a perfect mane and tail comb. 

Each lovingly hand crafted by Bespoke & Personal just for My Horse Box subscribers, they’re really special and it is about time Gee Gee and Me shared one of them!

The mane and tail pulling comb included in June’s 'Show Ready' themed box is of superior quality. The thin comb has metal teeth, which I love because I find the thin combs easier to work with, wrap the hair around and hold. The handle is hand graved and made from high quality wood – as all the brushes have been - with the My Horse Box horse logo.


For the equestrians who choose not to pull their horses’ mane/tail, the Bespoke & Personal comb is perfect for taming tangles, loosening any old hair and separating sections before plaiting up which is exactly how I used it last weekend. The comb gave me precise lines and was the perfect length to measure my plaits by.


My Horse Box will feature their next Bespoke & Personal grooming brush in September’s box...what will it be...?

The Rhino Plus 0g Turnout Rug Review

This weekend Oscar and I boxed up for a ride around a magical woodland nearby. I parked up to glorious sunshine, the tack went on and off we went. Twenty minutes in the wind picked up, whistling through the trees. Oscar began to spook as the leaves whipped up around him and I tried to convince us both the distant rumble of thunder was a noisy aeroplane. This was until the flashes of lightening were too real to deny!

Be brave...be brave I mumbled as huge raindrops began to thunder on my helmet. I started to sing. After all, nobody but Oscar and the Gods could hear me and Oscar is used to my nervous vocals. "I'm singing in the rain...just singing in the rain, there ain't no rumbles of thunder, please the sun come out again....". This unique rendition lasted thirty minutes as Oscar repeatedly tried to make up his own dance moves by throwing his bottom to the storm and I curled up in the saddle wondering how I would explain my 'fun' weekend to non-horsey colleagues at work?

Thankfully, it passed and we lived to tell the tale. The sun even came out for the latter half of our adventure. Now the above doesn't relate to Oscar's fabulous Rhino Plus Turnout Rug but it is an example of how crazy the weather can and has been recently here in the UK. Rugs need to be technical enough to deal with ever changing conditions and nothing beats Horseware.

The video attached shares the first wear of the rug, early May 2017.

The Rhino Plus is a 0g lightweight turnout rug. The outer layer of 1000 denier polypropylene is a strong barrier which protects the waterproofing and breath ability of the rug. Put to the test, even in the most torrential of downpours Oscar has remained comfortable and dry without overheating when the sun made its reappearance after the storm.

The Rhino Plus also features a Surefit Neck design with a V-front closure to give freedom of movement when grazing. Designed with the horse in mind throughout there are leg arches, reflective strips and liner hoops for when the temperature turns and added layers are required.


The Rhino Plus even helps you to work smarter, not harder because of the shine enhancing polyester lining - this is also anti-static and anti-bacterial too. For those in between days a detachable hood is included in the price.

There is no denying the Rhino Plus rug is in the 'splurge' price range between £160-£190 retailer dependant, the price is justified to have a 0g rug that is 100% waterproof and not just 'light-shower proof' as too many are. Having a grey horse, there are times I need and want to keep him as clean as possible and rugs go a long way in making my life easier.


Now please no more rain until winter...
