The Big Horse Shop guarantees all of it's products (with the exception of the Over Reach Boots and goods sold with faults indicated/­slight seconds) to be free of defects in materials and workmanship for 12 months from the date of purchase, providing you have the receipt and they are used in accordance with the purpose of manufacture.   This, however, is not a guarantee against normal wear and tear or improper sizing/fitting. Nor does it apply to product that has been damaged by misuse, accident, neglect, modification or unauthorized repair.  Should the items be damaged in anyway due to misuse, field, stable or horse damage the guarantee will be null and void. If we feel it is necessary goods will be returned to the factory for examination.  All goods returned must be in clean condition free from dirt and mud. 

If you believe you have purchased a defective product, do not continue to use it. Please return it with proof of purchase.

This warranty provides benefits over and above your statutory rights as a consumer.

In the case of the Over Reach Boot, the life expectancy depends on the impact caused by over-reaching, the boot is used to protect the horse from injury, it is not indestructible and so is not guaranteed against breakage, due to the horse over-reaching. 

In the case of goods sold with faults/slight seconds we have indicated that there is a fault with this item and reduced the selling price accordingly. When purchasing these products you are doing so with the full knowledge that the workmanship/­materials is faulty, therefore it is not guaranteed.
