The Stud plate is a high quality product with ergonomic and stylish design and Hiphoofs coloured studs make studding a true pleasure.  Forget about tap, wrench, spanner, screwdriver, cleaning pin, stud box and lost studs. The Stud plate is an all-in-one tool for studding with spanners for the most common stud sizes, a pin to get the dirt out of the stud holes and a tap to fix worn and dirty threads. It can also store eight studs on the plate.  

Northern Wells business idea is to develop and market specially designed and innovative products, where one can hang and support items in a smooth and flexible way, without any extra tools or other attachments.

Red Horse Products is a small company researching, developing and manufacturing solutions to age-old health problems in horses and humans.

Bostock Developments was founded by the late Hayden Bostock. Hayden saw a need in ensuring safety for riders after he was involved in a riding accident which almost cost him his life. He designed the Bostock Safety Stirrup to ensure safety for all horse riders. 

They were developed and manufactured in Australia and designed to break apart if a sudden shift of the rider’s weight indicates a fall is imminent, allowing the rider to be freed from the iron attached to the saddle.

Gococo is a young sock brand from Scandinavia that puts functionality in focus. Gococo’s socks combine highly functional materials with playful colours in a simple and clean Scandinavian design.

The Idea

I grew up with horses from the age of 4 when I was lucky enough to ride a shetland pony called Pixie, he changed my life and the love of horses has never left me.

In november 2016 I started a small business called Outdoor Functional Wear because I came upon a company in Sweden that designs and creates really great and functional outdoor clothing and I wanted to share them with my friends, their friends, hobby, professional riders and so on.

I really do take pride in ensuring that I listen to my customer and I pay exceptional attention to their needs, questions and requests.

My goal is to keep on searching and expanding my collection of functional, innovative horse products from Sweden or overseas and sharing them here with you.

If you are a retailer and you think that your product would fit into Outdoor Functional Wears theme, get in touch!

I love hearing from my customers, retailers and supporters from around the world.

Silver Whinnys™ and Whinny Warmers® are made in America! Completely! Our knitting mill is an American business. The yarn spinners are all American! The socks are finished and wrapped in America. The labels on the socks are made in America. Our goal is to help horse owners better help their horses, but we also want American jobs to stay in America.

"Whinny Warmers® came about because we needed simple and nontoxic solutions to simple issues regarding our horse’s legs. In the winter, our older mare benefited from warm legs. It didn’t make sense that we could put a blanket on her, but the most valuable asset, her legs, were completely unprotected! She suffered badly from arthritis and we found that the socks changed her life and made it right. She was the inspiration and the beginning of Whinny Warmers®. It wasn’t such a large leap later that next summer to create the Summer Whinnys™ Silver for her. It wasn’t hard to see that each time she stomped to remove the biting insects from her legs that the percussion caused her pain. Silver Whinnys™ were the next natural step for us to make in order to help our horse have a better Summer."

All equestrians, if they last long enough, learn that riding in whatever form is a lifelong sport and art, an endeavor that is both familiar and new every time you take the horse out of his stall or pasture.
