The Rug Lady

… Set up over 5 years ago, carries out professional cleaning and repair of all types of pony and horse rugs.  With a delivery and collection network through Gloucestershire, The Cotswolds and Worcestershire it could not be easier to keep your ‘Equine Wardrobe’ in tip top condition.

Regular cleaning, re-proofing and repair will keep your pony or horse warm and dry during the winter months whilst considerable extending the effective life of your rug.

We do not just clean and repair Horse Rugs! Listed below is an example of the range of services we offer, if you are not sure if we do it, we are always happy to discuss your requirements and advise you on repairs and cleaning.

  • Repairs undertaken

With many years of experience in the equine laundry field and the use of Nikwax professional cleaning products we can offer you a fast, professional and reliable turn round on any number of your horses rugs, numnahs, girths or your outdoor clothing.

We only use large commercial washing machines that have been programmed to give the best results.

With a range of industrial sewing machines we can repair anything from a lycra neck cover to a boat awning.  A large range of material and webbing stock means that wherever possible we can get a very close colour match.  We also have a policy of recycling badly damaged horse rugs, if the material is serviceable, by washing and reproofing the rug if necessary and dismantling it. This enables us to colour match and use the same manufacturer’s material in the repair whenever possible.

Alterations and fitting adjustments are not a problem and we have often added shoulder darts, extra elastic and reinforcing panels for those that like to explore hedges and think they can reach the greener grass on the other side of the fence!  Our experienced machinists carry out all horse rug repairs ‘in house’ and we will advise you if the repair is economically viable or not.  More often than not they are !

We endeavour to keep the cost of repairs as low as possible and have sourced various suppliers of quality rug fittings and materials at the most competitive prices.  We have heard some horror stories of repair pricing and intend not to be one of them.
