With the equine industry, in general, being a huge one in the UK, it stands to reason that what makes up part of this are retail horse products and they play an important role in keeping this industry strong.
All one has to do is look at the number of horses that are owned throughout the UK for many different purposes. These are for pleasure, for sports and event showing and even workhorses. Even the basic care requirements for horses require a number of different products.

The actual product purchases have to be separated from the buying of horses and horse care services. The retail sector is important because it encompasses the production of the horse products an how they are brought to market.
