Aldi is launching range of horse riding gear which costs less than a THIRD of the price of the items from top equestrian retailers

BUDGET chain Aldi is branching into the upper-crust world of horse riding.

The German retailer, which has 660 UK stores, is stocking a range of stable gear.

Bargain prices . . . Aldi launches new range of horse riding gear

A horse blanket is 34.99, ladies breeches 29.99, a gilet 14.99 and horse head collars 3.99.

At top equestrian stores a horse blanket can cost 110, breeches, 124, gilet 113 and headcollar 49.

Maria Rossall, 60, of New House Farm livery stables at Winmarleigh, Lancs, said: Parents often cant keep up with the prices of horse riding gear.

Festive fall Christmas takings at Aldi were flat and Lidls dropped by up to four per cent

The jodhpurs have been a real hit with the girls down at the stables.

And I know a few people who have bought the indoor and outdoor rugs its great that riding equipment is being made affordable.

It can be so expensive for people and the fact Aldi is stocking these items means riding can now stop being a niche hobby.

The sport should be for all people and will help young kids get out and start being active and interacting with the natural world.



Aldi said the horse gear was being stocked as a country living range and denied it was getting above its station.

But Raquel Vidal, who supplies some of the top equestrian names from her shop in Londons posh Kensington, said: Ive never heard of Aldi.

The stores Tony Baines said it was opening up the opportunity to all to try a new hobby.
