Hardy Etc Equestrian launched in August 2016 and is named after the owner and founder Abigail Hardy. The business and brand has grown hugely in the last 2 years,
I was born in 1990 and have always been an enthusiastic horse rider and event rider. The business is based in Herefordshire, England and was started from complete scratch. The entire brand is based on my passion for riding and eventing which started at the young age of 5 where I was an active member of my local Pony and Riding Club. Horse riding is still a huge part of my life and I continue to support my local Pony Club by volunteering, I teach my niece and still complete with my two horses.
The entire range of products has been designed by me based on riders needs and upgrading the traditional equestrian market. I found that the competition riding wear available to me was dated and quite simply boring, hence the idea behind the range which you will see is bright, colourful, fun, refreshing and unique. There was a clear gap in the market which I seized and I am very proud of it. In the last 12 months the business has exhibited at the leading International Horse Shows across the UK and Southern Ireland with plans to attend shows in Poland, France and Germany in 2019.
The business, brand and adventure Hardy Etc is a dream come true for me. The brand continues to evolve and the new designs launched designed in house by me and my team- always with the rider in mind!
We are super excited to be on this journey and hope you will be just as passionate and love the brand as much as we do
Love Hardy Etc x
