Our Company

We are family of horse lovers and horse owners so we have first-hand experience of how hard it can be to find natural products for care for your trusty steed.

We started our business in 2010 and have been building a loyal customer base ever since. We want our brand to stand for quality, reliability and above all, results and we’re committed to providing our customers with a top-notch service at affordable prices – proving that being green doesn’t have to cost the earth. With a growing number of people moving away from using chemicals, whether in the home, on themselves or on their animals, we’ve seen first-hand the benefits of taking a more natural and holistic approach.

We’re based on a 200 acre farm in rural Ayrshire in Scotland where as well as manufacturing our unique products we have our own menagerie of horses, donkeys, a dog, a growing brood of rescued battery hens, not to mention our latest addition of two very noisy geese!

In 2016 we saw a huge growth in our in retail footprint so customers now have a choice whether to buy online or from their local tack shop or feed store. We’ve also signed exclusive distributors this year in Ireland and the Netherlands meaning our great brand is spreading across Europe! We’ve been proud to see reviews and tried & tested articles in the like of Horse & Rider, Horse Magazine and Equestrian Life and we’ve also had some brilliant feedback from the RSPCA who use our products successfully in their equine rescue centres across the UK.

We are currently seeking retail stockists across the UK as well as self-employed equine sales agents for the South East, South West, Midlands and Wales.  We’re also looking for distributors across Continental Europe. If you’re interested please email:info@safecare-equine.com

 

*Please note we are a UK based company and our web-shop only shows prices for shipping in the British Isles. If you’re from further afield and want to try our products, drop us a line at info@safecare-equine.com and we can quote you a bespoke shipping cost.

Product disclaimer information

Our entire product range is natural and plant-based and we, like many of you, believe firmly in the power of plants and their ability to do good things, both for humans and animals alike. The last few years the world has seen a step change in how people view chemicals, toxins and even processed foods and we’re super-conscious about what we buy and what long-term effects it may have on our health and well-being.  We believe that our products represent the best possible natural alternative to chemical.

About our products

In order to comply with regulatory requirements providers of natural products can’t make claims that their products can cure or treat ailments or medical conditions. There’s an accepted use of language and as our products are not licensed veterinary or medicinal products, we cannot claim as such.  We believe our products, as many natural remedies do, to have health-beneficial properties and our customers have shared many success stories with us. We simply say that our range of grooming, skin-care, hoof-care and stable management products are useful aids in the hygiene and maintenance of your horse and should be used to compliment and aid natural healing.

This goes for our anti-bacterial products too, and any reference to this is made in a scientific context – especially as some of our products contain tea-tree – rather than a medicinal one.

We regularly check our ingredients against the FEI Banned Substance list and can confirm that none of our products fall into banned categories. All of our products carry a Material Safety Data Sheet and where applicable any HSE approval numbers (Fly Repellent for example) will be displayed on the product label. We’ve been in consultation with the Veterinary Medical Directorate (VMD) and are working towards better labelling and ensuring that we remain compliant.

Whilst our products are natural and plant-based we recognise that animals, like some humans, may have allergic reactions to some natural ingredients and if you are concerned about this we recommend a standard patch test before using the product.

We do our best to make everything as clear as possible but please let us know if you have any questions or concerns. Please note however, that we are unable to provide an entire list of every ingredient and formula as this contravenes our IP.

Thank you.
