    Holiday Time! Posted on 28 October 2016

    It is finally holiday time at Silverburn Browbands. There is one more week of the summer holidays left for my little girl and it's only fair she gets a wee holiday. It has been a flat out summer, and for 6 years old, she has been very tolerant. So it's time to recharge the batteries and have a few days of nothing but fun! The 'Ready to Go' shop will be taken offline later but you can still place your normal orders and waiting times for any existing orders are not affected. You can still get in touch via email mail@silverburnbrowbands.co.uk and it will be business as usual from Friday 12th onwards. Happy holidays folks!

    Silverburn Show Canes Posted on 28 October 2016

    Silverburn show canes are often over shadowed by the browbands as there isn't so much emphasis on them however they are always being made to order and as popular as ever! The photographs don't always make it to social media ... This particular cane is natural willow detailed with a rainbow top. These canes are fabulous and blingy whilst still remaining that little bit more understated. There are usually canes in stock, and bespoke ones are always available with a multitude of options and finishes. Please get in touch if you would like to order a crystal top show cane or something more bespoke.

    July Website Issue Posted on 28 October 2016

    There is a small internal problem with the website's mobile site at the moment affecting ordering on smartphones/iPads. You can make all your selections but it will not switch over to the payments page. The website techie people are working on this. It is not affecting orders placed via a computer/laptop so please continue placing your orders that way. Alternatively you can place your orders over the phone (01771) 624924 and pay by credit/debit card. It is a nuisance and very much an inconvenience but hopefully it will be resolved soon. Thank you for your patience and understanding whilst it is being fixed.

    26th March 2016 Does your horse constantly disrespect your electric fence, walking into it, leaning over it with its rug insulating the shock so the horse feels nothing defeating the purpose of restricted grazing or getting where they shouldn't be? Then you need a Guardian Hotline Electric Fence Rug! At this time of year, you will be looking to order your 0g turnout rugs, and even they insulate a lot of the shock from your fence. The 0g Genius rug from Hotline offers a solution for that ... and it's dual purpose! The new Genius™ rug works with electric fencing to prevent escapes by transferring the pulse from the fence through to the inside of the rug the instant the horse touches the fence – this means the horse will feel the same effect as they would if not wearing a rug at all. You can either use the 1200d turnout rug on its own or you can layer it with your usual rugs. The way it is designed for use with other rugs means the electric pulse still transfers to the horse! Silverburn Browbands are a stockist for these rugs and you can order yours by following this link ... http://silverburnbrowbands.co.uk/products/331873--electric-fence-rug.aspx
