With over 40 years experience, Shires is one of the world's leading names in equestrian products for horse and rider, from blankets, saddle pads, bits, bridles and stable equipment to show, hunt and everyday riding clothing for adults and children. While Shires has a U.S. base of operations in Hampton, New Hampshire, the company is headquartered in Leominster, England, and holds a Royal Warrant from Queen Elizabeth II for providing equestrian equipment for horse and rider to the Royal Stables.
At Shires, their goal has always been to make good quality products to sell at realistic prices. Many of the products they sell are made in their own factories; this enables Shires to have complete control over the manufacturing process of most of their products, as well as the raw materials they are using. For instance, they source the leather for their bridles from England, Italy, Germany and Norway, which are some of the best leather-producing countries in the world.
