Established in 1999 as the UK's first on line store specifically built for the equestrian and country pursuits market. The company was created by a group of like minded people who wanted to 'spend more time in the country' rather than shopping, bringing everything for the horse and rider, dog walker and general country pursuits enthusiast under one roof.
In 2006 the business was sold, the new owners retaining the existing staff, however, in April 2017 Country Supplies was sold back to one of the original team, she has been joined by two others who are all focused on giving a first class, personal customer service whether it is in store or on line.The team has a wealth of experience in equestrianism and other country pursuits, two showing horses at county level, with years of experience in showing, dressage and eventing, one of our team has bred gun dogs, training them with success for the field and show ring, another member joined us from a large equestrian manufacturer with years of experience in the industry.
Although originally started in the prestigious, award winning Dean Clough complex in Halifax Country Supplies later moved to the Pennine village of Queensbury into the Black Dyke Mill, made world famous by the brass band of the same name. Queensbury holds lots of records for being the highest village above a certain population, having the highest upper school, church and lots of other interesting facts that come with being 1200ft above sea level!
Black Dyke Mill is in the heart of the village and the village is surrounded by rugged open countryside, the local equestrian population is very active and because of this we opened up a 'bricks and mortar' store to offer a wide range of supplies for the local population. Our store stocks the biggest range locally of equestrian clothing, tack, footwear, lotions and potions including many prestigious brands as well as clothing and accessories for other country past times. We offer a horse rug wash and repair service, in house alterations to clothing, along with a feed section which sells a great selection of popular feeds and bedding for the horse, poultry, rabbits and general small holding needs.
We support our local community by offering a discount scheme for the local Ryburn Vally Pony Club and two of the largest riding schools in our area, we have also sponsored local equestrian events.
Here at Country Supplies we look forward to welcoming our customers old and new both in the shop in Queensbury and on our new on line store.
