Summer Update

As we are heading towards our second summer with Black Heart Equestrian, we thought it was time to do an update!  At the end of August we will have been in business for two years - where has the time gone?!  Black Heart Equestrian has come such a long way, especially in the last year, and we have really developed into our own brand with a unique range of products designed and produced by ourselves.  Around September last year things got incredibly busy for us and with the addition of Horse of the Year Show, Your Horse Live and Olympia as well as an incredible Black Friday weekend, the brand really moved up a level in the marketplace.   It has been pretty hectic...

What a year!

Not sure where 2018 has gone but it really flew by! What an incredible year it was for Black Heart and we are entering 2019 on a high! Final year studies at university had to take a bit of a back seat as the second half of 2018 was incredibly busy for Black Heart. When I launched the brand last August I thought things would just tick along until I had completed my degree but the growth and popularity has been unbelievable. I’ve had to get to grips with range planning, stock control and forecasting and spent lots of time creating and testing new products for 2019 – it's just so exciting!    The wait for new products after the long...
