January 2015

Well can you believe that it is January already. January so far has been extremely busy! As you can see we have a brand new e-commerce website, which has been very challenging and time consuming, still requiring a lot of tweaking, but i'm sure that you will agree, it looks super. The previous website was nice, and quite well organised, but i felt that from the perspective as an online customer, it wasn't serving the way that the modern day shopper buys online, and as most of my work comes via my website, i felt it was time for a major change. The new website has the online shop with the stock items, but the colour albums have been created as items available to order with ordering options to make tailoring your bespoke browband even easier.

...............

Silverburn Browbands have been nominated by our customers for the BETA - British Equestrian Trade Association Business Awards for a second year running in the SEIB Retailer of the Year Awards in the Online Retailer Category. A very humble thank you to all who nominated Silverburn Browbands. It is overwhelming to be thought of and valued so highly by our customers and the recognition means so much.


..........................

Silverburn Browbands celebrated it's 5th Birthday on the 19th January! Who can believe that we are now 5 years old, and what a successful 5 years it has been, slowly and successfully building a national brand!

With the new website being built, I felt it would be nice to invite customers to send in some pictures of their horses for the new website with the added incentive of a little competition. As a thank you to the Silverburn Browbands customers, the competition was exclusive to customers, and they were asked to email their photo's by the 25th January. On the 26th January, the images were uploaded to an album on Facebook where the picture with the most likes would win a prize of their image printed onto a 30cm x 30cm canvas. The winner of the competition was Paul Rawling and the lovely Annie. Paul's canvas has been sent to him so we will pop up a picture when he receives it!

Silverburn Browbands has reached the finals of the British Equestrian Trade Association (BETA) business awards for a second year running! I am just absolutely delighted and really can't quite believe it!

Last year Silverburn Browbands made the final 6 from over 2500 companies nominated in my category, I'm not sure how many finalists there are this year but I know Silverburn Browbands is definitely one of them!!

It's so overwhelming but really all down to my customers who provide me with the opportunity to create such beautiful pieces. The finals are on the 22nd February down in Birmingham at the National Motorcycle Museum.

As with all new things, we have come across one or two teething problems with the new website, mainly relating to the way that the website works on an iPad, iPhone and smartphone. Because of the design of the new website, it means that the submenu's aren't touch screen compatible. As a result of this, my website people are very kindly building an app for me to allow my website to work properly on all devices. Please bear with us whilst this is being done, and where possible, please enjoy our website using a laptop or desk computer.

BETA International 2015

Well what can we say, BETA 2015 was a great weekend away and the awards at night were super. A huge well done to all involved with BETA International 2015 and the BETA Business Awards. Every single finalist was thorougly deserving of being in the finals with some truely amazing companies in attendance at the awards. There were some really interesting talks throughout BETA International 2015, the one interesting me the most was the talk done by Charles & Owen regarding the implications of the EU ruling on Riding Hat safety standards with EN1384 having been removed. The only hat from the Charles & Owen range to be affected by this safety standard withdrawl was their Fiona hat which was a bit of a blow to the Showing community as the Fiona was a hugely popular and less cumbersome strapped hat. Good news for retailers as they can continue to sell the EN1384 hats indefinitely, not so good news for those who have just purchased a EN1384 hat (including myself) as most societies will allow use of the hat for this season only before it being a compulsory rule that your hat must meet the PAS015 standard

March 2015

Silverburn Browbands have been involved in a number of new and refreshing projects so far this year, being involved with Fife Saddlers creating rosettes for Clydesdale Stallion boards, something very different to work on. The Stallion is Collessie Pride, owned by Laura Henry, bred by Ronnie Black of the Collessie Stud

     

We have also recently started working in collaboration with The Ringinglow Rocking Horse Company creating bespoke pieces for their Mayfield range of Rocking Horses. Find out more about The Rininglow Rocking Horse Company by seeing our stockists page where you will find a little more about our work with Judy and Harry Cridland and also find their contact details.

This was an interesting project recently done. I had a customer who competes in historical side saddle classes and her chosen period is the Victorian period. She wanted to have two browbands created which would compliment her costume and bear some relevance to the Victorian period. Coloured browbands were often used to show off high status. My customer sent me some of the velvet from her costume (which was a challenge to work with) and these were the two designs chosen. One which was more traditional and suited to the era with a more vintage finish to make it look more authentic and the other slightly more modern for other classes. The browbands were made with press stud fastenings from our Kwik-change press stud © range meaning that they can be quickly and easily changed between classes. Was a lovely project to work on, but admittedly it was a bit of a head scratcher finding the best way to work with the velvet.

I had a lovely break to the Royal Windsor Horse Show from Thursday 14th until Sunday 17th. It was wonderful not only seeing so many of my customers competing but also having a 5* time whilst there! One of my most special moments was being invited along to a photo shoot for Her Majesty's 90th Birthday celebrations where the beautiful Katherine Jenkins was being photographed along with the lovely Kinvara Garner and her racing pony Blue wearing their lucky browband and noseband! It was very special to be included in that with Kinvara's family. My sponsored team at Moor Farm also had an extremely successful time with several wins and great placings! The work that goes into preparing for me having a few days off so I don't in turn fall behind with my orders is always a bit hectic but back to work as usual this week with no disruption to order times. Please enjoy some of my pictures - though I must emphasise that I am a terrible photographer!

I was recently asked if I would spruce up a horse shoe using colours a bride has chosen as her theme for a guests grand children to present. Horse shoes are not something I do very often, however, I always find a wee change quite refreshing.

August

It has been an absolutely flat out summer for Silverburn Browbands and the school summer holidays are coming to a close. Because of this I am heading away for a few days break with my little girl. I have caught up with the orders as much as possible to allow for a few days off and therefore it will not affect nor disrupt the other existing orders waiting to be completed/started. The 'Ready to Go' section of the website will be taken down a little later today but you can still order your bespoke pieces as normal. There is no such thing as a holiday for me, I never stop and switch off so I will still be available for you to contact by email and pm. Any telephone messages I will deal with on Monday. Have a lovely weekend, and good luck if you are out competing! I will be enjoying having some 5 year old fun!

On the 14th December, many of you may have heard Silverburn Browbands sponsored rider Kinvara Garner, along with fellow young jockey Connor Fletcher and Kinvara's dad Sebastian Garner doing an interview on BBC Radio 2's, The Jeremy Vine Show where Kinvara entered the BBC studio's riding her racing shetland Ulverscroft Midnight Blue! It was fantastic to listen to, both children came across very well, as did Sebastian ...even Blue did well with his carrot munching sounds! Kinvara's mother Bridget very kindly sent me these photo's of Kinvara and Blue in the studio's and i love the one of Kinvara standing beside Elton John's piano! Kinvara is competing with Blue at Olympia, The London International Horse Show all week in the Shetland Pony Grand National, be sure to cheer them on, they are both very distinctive in their purple and pink silks and matching BLINGY racing set!

Today (21st December) is the last day for 1st class UK postage for pre-Christmas delivery - so effectively your last day for ordering items from our 'Ready to Go' range with standard postage. We still have some crystal gloves, a few pairs of our gorgeous brushing boots, some crystal browbands, show browbands, a few canes, some mini delights, and there is one sparkle gift basket left!

Why not have a look on the website and pick up a few last minute gifts, you can also purchase a gift vouchers ... and if you are even more last minute, why not choose a Silverburn Browbands gift voucher - the gift vouchers can be activated on Christmas day so that your recipient receives the gift voucher by email on Christmas day!

Wow, just wow! I received an email from Northsound Cash for Kids to advise that over 5000 children will benefit from Cash for Kids in the Grampian area alone! This is an area with so much wealth from oil, fishing and farming ... it's almost impossible to imagine that there is also so much poverty and people who are disadvantaged in the area. Thank you again to all who took the time to take gift donations here for Cash for Kids to collect. I was wrapping gifts today, for for my family and for customers, quietly content in the knowledge that we, along with everyone else who donated gifts and money to Northsound Cash For Kids also made a happy Christmas for others less fortunate than ourselves. Have a lovely Christmas folks, especially the children who will have presents to open this Christmas thanks to Cash for Kids! Rosie

Here's a wee message from Northsound Cash for Kids!

As a result of this, the checkout layout has been changed which hopefully will eliminate the problems. If you still have difficulty paying for your order, please leave your order, and get in touch as soon as possible, where you can pay over the phone or a seperate invoice can be issued whilst keeping all your details on the system. Apologies for the inconvenience with this.
