2 Horseware Mission Statement To provide innovative products that make life easier for horse and rider.
3 About HorsewareIn 1985, the horse rug industry was changed forever with the establishment of Horseware® Products Ltd. by Tom and Carol MacGuinness. Tom’s determination to produce a rug that didn’t leak, didn’t make the horse sweat and didn’t slip led to the creation of the Rambo® Original – the first fully waterproof and breathable Turnout that really worked.
4 About HorsewareBy 1996 the Rambo® Turnout had become the world’s best selling Turnout rug and its design has become the industry standard, with other manufacturers having no other choice than to trail in the footsteps of Rambo® when it comes to rug production, quality and development
