Recommended suppliers and services

Horse1st is happy to recommend those suppliers and services we have found to trust and respect. Primarily we are looking at the specialist or small businesses that cannot easily be sourced from the horse press. You will know of others, and between us we can create a directory of high-quality equine resources across the Uk and beyond. There is no charge for inclusion in this directory but Horse1st reserves the right to refuse entry without giving a reason.
