Established 38 years ago, this Equestrian Wholesaler is one of Australia’s oldest and most respected distributors to the equestrian and pet owners' retail trade, supplying more than 600 saddlery & produce and pet stores throughout Australia.

Regarded as the most competitive, broad-based equestrian importer/wholesaler, they specialise in value for money, high turnover, and quality goods for horse riding enthusiasts and pet owners. Well-known brands stocked include Eureka, ShowCraft, Status, Northern River Drafter, Nullarbor, XCalibur, Bounty Hunter, and leading equine health care products. Their range also includes some pet requisites, allowing them to be a ‘one-stop shop’ with the ability to completely stock out a new Equestrian store from start to finish.

In keeping up with technology, on-line Marketing has been introduced to augment their Resellers’ in-store sales, with direct internet orders shipped to the customer’s nearest stockist, who is credited with the appropriate wholesale margin.

The business has trusted relationships with some of the best equestrian and pet supplies manufacturers in the world. Products are manufactured in China, India and Taiwan under longstanding agreements built up over decades of close collaboration.
