Last week I gave you a look at some of our Tuffa products. This week let me expand a little about a couple of styles you may find useful in the cold day ahead.
First we have the Suffolk boot ideal for the country from dog walking to school runs. It has a waxed water repellent nubuck leather upper with a wool lining.
Secondly the Nordic Waterproof to protect your feet from the cold wet weather an ideal yard boot for the winter. The microfibre upper is stronger than leather and is lined with a waterproof “bootie” membrane. This boot also has Du Pont “Comfort Max” insulation.
Pop in and try!!
Hey we are coming into colder days and need to keep our feet warm and dry.
At Cedars we have a range of Tuffa
Boots from insulated muckers, composite-toe cap yard boots, through to long boots in a choice of leg widths in black or tan.
Clogs as well! Also plenty of choice in warm socks from our Noble range.
My name is Sue and I am the newest member of Staff to join the Cedars team, my aim going into the autumn is to welcome customers old and new to introduce them to the new product lines.
Due to arrive in September are our new Noble colours and styles for the autumn and winter.
We stock a large range of Tuffa boots from clogs to nordic boots and some lovely long boots in a choice of colours, black or tan with different leg widths.
So do pop in and say hi as some of you will recognise me from many years ago when shows were held and I took entries and ran the shop on Sundays.
Let me introduce myself, my name is Tracey and I run Cedars Country and Equestrian. My daughter Katie set up cedars in May 2016 and has run it successfully for the first year .
Katie has now gone on to pastures new so we would like to say thank you and good luck in your new job.
So to carry on with the good job Katie has done I have had to take over Cedars Country and Equestrian, and Sue will be joining us in September.
Learning how to do Facebook and blogs, don’t know how long this will take but I will give it a try.
Cedars had been invited to Lynford Hall again this year to see the noble outfitters new spring and summer collection 2018.
Lynford Hall Hotel is set in the heart of Thetford Forest , what a beautiful setting to see the up and coming clothing that everyone will want to be seen in.
It was nice to be one of the first people to see the new stock and colours and to feel the quality of the products.
There is a new range of colours for the calf peddies sock range and perfect fit gloves.I was impressed with the giraffe socks ,but they only have them in children’s sizes.
There are some new colours for the balancing tights which have already proved to be popular in cedars for the comfort and fit. The new colours are brown/graphite and plum/orchard.
There is a new top for all you dressage and show fans, the Victoria long sleeve pull on show shirt. The customer can choose the pattern on the collar, it has a anti microbial finish, decorative mesh back panel for added breathability.
I have found a quote from Noble Outfitters
“Noble Outfitters is designed to help you live the life you ride, all weathers all rides.

I think this sums up the product, we at Cedars have worn the nobles brand and are impressed with the clothing and the range which is on offer.

Cedars Country and Equestrian is situated within Witcham Equestrian Centre and Fen Farm Supplies at Mepal Road .Witcham.

Have you seen Cedars Country & Equestrians new fly rug with a difference?
Recently we have brought out a new fly rug, this is Sheldon’s new all in one fly rug with waterproof upper. This new rug is brilliant for the unpredictable summer months as there’s no need to keep swapping rugs over during the changing weather conditions.
Not realising how popular these rugs to be and at £29.99 they’re excellent value for money we’ve already sold out and had to re-order stock with a new batch which has just come into Cedars Country and Equestrian now. The Sheldon all in one combo fly rug fuses a high grade light fly mesh with a waterproof 600 denier ripstop upper. The rug also has full coverage belly coverage, elasticated leg straps and ripstop shoulder pleats for easy movement.
If your horse needs a new fly rug for this summer this is an essential piece for your horses wardrobe and I’m proud to say it is in stock at Cedars, searching for new innovative products and brands for horse and rider.
“Great value for money rug, such a good idea”
“Love the neck on this rug, some can be too long”
“Lovely lightweight rug, the waterproof top is a brilliant idea”
“Super rug, fitted well and stayed in place, really happy with it”

Cedars Country & Equestrians new spring/ summer collection is now available in store. From clothing to a wide range of breeches, gloves and socks this new collection of exciting new products just shows how much Noble Outfitters is expanding.
We have new styles of the ever popular Ashley Performance tops, one in a pretty Hyacinth colour with mesh underarms in a watercolour floral design and a new colour in mint with a lace effect floral design. The Ashley performance shirts are perfect for the changeable weather in spring, they have mesh underarms and breathable fabric to keep you cool, the fabric also have opti-dry technology which regulates your body temperature, keeping you cooler when its hot and warmer when its colder weather.
The Balance riding breeches Cedars Country & Equestrian have in stock has now quadrupled in size due to them growing in popularity and demand. The sizes range from small to extra large with extra small and extra extra large available to order. The new colours in stock are pacific blue, grey asphalt, navy as well as a navy patterned design and a black and purple patterned design, giving equestrians a better choice of the range. These riding tights have a wonderful stretch giving you a flattering fit, they are extremely comfortable and have a pocket on the side thigh which is big enough to hold a standard I phone.
By far my favourite new pieces are the new perfect fit gloves which now come in a funky purple print and a blue and teal print. The new cool mesh glove in lime punch is an excellent colour and perfect for when going out hacking, they make signalling so much clearer due to the bright colour.
I congratulate Noble Outfitters for the innovative designs they keep coming up with, we have already placed an order for the Autumn/Winter collection which has a even bigger range of new products and existing items in new colours.
Their spring/summer collection we’re stocking also includes new colours in the Hailey long sleeve tops and a range of caps in different colours.
Making spring brighter for equestrians,
Although a few riders don’t it is now a given that a majority of riders will wear an approved up to standard riding hat every time they get on a horse. They protect your most vital component and save your head from potential knocks, blows and scrapes.
During Beta International 2017 here at Cedars Country & Equestrian we took notes on a seminar run by managing director Roy Burek as he explained the safety protocol Charles Owen participated in to receive the BSI kitemark, why it is so important to get a hat that suits your head shape and what they are doing to exceed there safety standards.
For Charles Owen to obtain the BSI kitemark they have initial product assessments, factory assessments, annual testing of all there hats and batch testing of eight out of every three thousand hats. These tests though tough regulations ensure you are wearing a helmet that will sufficiently protect your head.
Every helmet will fit a slightly different head shape. The most common head shape is oval which the V8’s, 4Stars and young jockey skulls are designed for. Round heads are more suited to the Ayre8’s and the Competitor helmets. The Plagiocephaly head shape is uneven, where as the Dolichocephaly head shape is very long and narrow where the V8 is recommended.
Due to the recent way it has been advised to sleep babies on there back rather than there front is has affected the shape of their heads in later life and has related in younger riders developing a brachycephaly head shape where the head is wider and flatter at the back. Most helmets are designed to hook under the back of the head, however if the back of the head is flatter Charles owen have created different styles to fit these flatter heads. As well as there standard designs which can be fitted for you by a qualified member of staff at Cedars Country & Equestrian safely and correctly, Charles Owen also do a made to measure service and work closely with members of the RDA so anyone with an uneven or individual head shape can have a helmet that fits correctly.
Charles Owen have teamed up with Lazer, a bike company in Europe to research through three different universities different ways to prevent head and brain injuries. The brain moves and pulsates in our skulls so if an impaction occurs the brain can twist and create sheer forces. Charles Owen and Lazer are researching ways of reducing brain injuries in the future by doing tests and studies with synthetic brains.
It is amazing the amount of researching and testing Charles Owen are doing to protect equestrians heads, it is very important you get your hat fitted by a qualified hat fitter and you replace your hat if its had an impaction, everyone at Cedars Country & Equestrian are fully qualified to fit hats, you can also come into our store and check if your hat fits correctly, we do not charge for any of our hat fitting knowledge as we believe you safety is more important.
Keep your head safe. Katie
One of our main horse care brands at Cedars Country & Equestrian, Safe Care Equine specialises in horse care brands which are completely natural.
Their range has no colorants, chemicals, or artificial fragrances as well as being hypo allergenic. The products don’t strip the natural oils in the horses coat, they’re non irritating, non toxic, non flammable and are 100% natural.
Safe Care equine originally started in 2010 based in Ayrshire, Scotland. All products are manufactured on site promoting UK business and promotes environmentally friendly horse care products that give great results.
The range compromises of first aid products such as rapid relief and barrier cream which are dual purpose to aliments such as sweet itch and mud fever, also they have a wide selection of shampoos, coat conditioners, mane and tail detanglers, stain removers, tack care products and stable, trailer and rug washes.
Many of our customers who had never heard of the Safe Care range before took a shot and tried one or two of the products and have been so amazed by the results they have converted to the brand entirely, the face that the range is non irritating is a big bonus as horses skin is very sensitive, giving them the confidence that they can apply the products with no fear of irritating the horses skin.
Cedars Country & Equestrian stocks a large range of Safe Care items and has tried and tested a large percentage of them, although I was a bit sceptical at first I was amazed by the quick results I could see and how much our customers loved the brand. My two favourites (as I couldn’t just pick one) was the mane and tail detangler, as well as detangling the hair without leaving a slippery finish it also conditioned the hair and noticed my mares mane and tail looked much healthier and felt a lot stronger in just a few uses.
My second top pick is the Leather Balsam, it absorbs really well into the leather and doesn’t leave it feeling greasy, it is great to use on tack, as well as riding boots, leather furniture and I’ve even used it on my leather jacket at home, it gives great results.
So come in and try a few new pieces of the Safe Care Equine range today at Cedars Equestrian & Country, you’ll be amazed by the results.
Pulling up to Lynnford Hall Hotel I was quite in ore and overwhelmed by the scale of this hotel. Going through these grand cast iron gates all to see Noble Outfitters new autumn/winter range, I am so impressed by what scale this company has grown to and still expanding day by day in the UK.
Arriving at the hotel I was greeted by Noble Outfitters sales manager Dean. He kindly gave me a tour of the hotel before showing off the new lines we could be potentially stocking at Cedars Country & Equestrian.
Every possible item was beautifully displayed, this give a huge opportunity to not only view the new colourways of current lines but also gave a chance to see the new ranges first hand and try on sample pieces to experience the fit and see first hand the new features their clothes have.
I have only very positive things to say about the new ranges Noble Outfitters has in stock, though my favorite piece was a new jacket they are bringing out. It is completely waterproof, fully seam sealed, really warm and its a stunning fit, this is to only mention a few features.
We have a huge range of Noble Outfitters clothing and accessories, which will soon be expanding again. Anyone is welcome to come in and try on the products in our comfortable changing room here at Cedars Country & Equestrian. We wear a lot of the brand ourselves. The new range is due to come out start of September, which is a little while away. We do however have our spring/summer range to look forward to being delivered to us mid to end of March, we have new lines coming in including the ever popular balance riding tight which boasts new colourways and something a little different.
