Company Description

For more than thirty years Woof Wear has been at the forefront of equestrian protection and our products are valued equally by leisure riders and professionals.

Protection by design is our mantra and having the highest quality as standard at an affordable cost is a key philosophy. Great care is taken to ensure that every product meets tough international quality standards.

Having design and development at the heart of the brand, Woof Wear offer products that are hard-wearing and easy to care for and will be a staple part of kit for many years to come.  We have enthusiasm about the latest technology - we love to try out new materials and to embrace knowledge from different sporting disciplines in order to offer the best possible protection for customers and their horses

We see it as an essential part of our business to listen to our customers, and to implement suggestions from everyone out there ‘in the wild’. By incorporating testing and feedback from riders at local and international level, we develop trusted, practical and comfortable products for horse and rider.

From our offices in the beautiful Cornish countryside, we not only manage the design and development but also the delivery of goods all to destinations across the UK and internationally.

Through sponsoring equestrian organisations, teams and individuals we are able to contribute directly back into equestrian sport.

We are continually trying our best to become a sustainable business and operate in as environmentally friendly way as possible.
