The team at Horse & Co are all locals and are committed horse lovers and owners and are passionate about horse health. The shop was opened in an iconic tin shed by Noela in 2015. Noela’s aim was to provide tack and supplements to horse owners which had not previously been available locally. New to retail Noela focussed on providing friendly, knowledgeable, genuine service and great products that worked. In order to endorse our products we regularly hold staff and customer trials with feedback surveys to ensure the products work and do no harm.
Noela’s horse experience includes beginning riding as a child, Pony club, jumping, mustering and now enjoys trailriding, cattle work, and a late interest in dressage, the basis of all riding. Noela has two Standardbreds.
Ange joined the team in mid 2016 and is a very avid and experienced horsewoman. Ange has a Australian Stock Horse, originally from the snowies, and enjoys regular trailriding and team penning. Her two teenage daughters are also keen horsewomen.
Our initial priority was to our local customers, and as we have grown we now have many interstate and online customers. We highly value all of our customers and treat all with the same level of excellent service and quality products.
To expand our knowledge we partner with a variety of Nutritionists, Saddle Fitters, Farriers, Barefoot Trimmers, Chiropractors, Bodywork Experts, Behaviourists and Trainers. We have an ongoing passion for learning and gaining valuable horse health information to share with our Valued Customers. We recognise that all Horses, People and Paddocks are different, which is always taken into consideration when offering advice on health and nutrition.
We are always broadening our array of products to suit our customer’s needs. If we don’t stock what you are looking for please ask and we will try our best to source it for you. We also welcome approaches from suppliers of products to stock them at H&Co. We support other small businesses. We take goods on consignment also, so please email us or drop in and we will help sell your goods.
On occasion we run clinics on nutrition, body work and pasture management, so keep an eye on our facebook page for information on when and where these are scheduled. You can request to be included on the H&Co email list for notification of clinics as well as keeping up with our latest specials and trials. Click on this link to be included.
We trust you will enjoy your visit, whether it is in person to our Store, or interacting with our website, facebook or instagram pages, or using our products.
If you think we can improve in any areas, we welcome your honest feedback.
Enjoy your Horse & Co journey!
Noela and Ange
