Fitting appointments are £40 per horse, there is also a travel charge of £30 per visit. Appointments within a 20 mile drive of our base do not pay a travel charge.

No travel costs will be refunded. If you need to cancel or rearrange your appointment please let us know at least 24 hours in advance. Failure to do so will mean you are liable for the appointment charge.
