STRAIGHT FROM THE HORSE’S MOUTH

Brr - it's cold at Neigh-Bours HQ in Jhb, the horses are all loving the cold and galloping around with their tails in the air! Only South African equestrians will understand the joy and relief of the first frost! 
Fortunately Tabard now has a range of specifically equine products to help protect our horses in warmer parts of SA where the frost hasn't arrived yet.

And speaking of Tabard Equine, we are so proud to be able to announce that they are our headline sponsor for the NEIGH-BOURS TRAINING SHOW coming up on 2 July at Eaton Farm!
