What makes Cavaletti different? We are really interested in our customers and we want you to have the best possible shopping experience. Since we began in 2004 we have always focussed on providing horse and country-life lovers with exceptional service and good quality, practical products.
Cavaletti’s customers really are at the centre of everything we do and we work hard to bring you a wide and interesting range of equestrian and country clothing that will suit your needs and budget.
Whilst our new website makes browsing, choosing and ordering straightforward and easy (do try out our new ‘filter’ option to quickly find products that are perfect fit), we also always welcome your telephone calls and e-mails. We really are here to help you and to make shopping with Cavaletti a great experience.
How Cavaletti Started
In a dingy changing room behind a feed store, with only two pairs of not-very-exciting-jodhpurs in my size and a seemingly total lack of interest or help from anyone, I felt depressed and cross.
Here I was, excited about going back to riding (after a break for career, family and all sorts of other reasons) and prepared to spend some of my hard-earned cash, yet having a miserable experience. “There must be a better way,” I thought.
Fast-forward a year, after masses of market research (the career was in marketing, so I knew I needed to really understand my customers and their needs), and Cavaletti Clothing was launched.
We began by specialising in riding and country wear in the more generous sizes, but very quickly our attention to detail, customer service and passion for getting things right for our customers, was attracting customers of all sizes and ages from all over the UK, Europe and even as far away as New Zealand and America.

To know and love horses and to be able to ride is a joy and an honour. At Cavaletti we are committed to supporting charities whose fantastic work helps riders and horses.
We have supported: Riding for the Disabled; the Mark Davies Injured Riders Fund; the Tania Moore Memorial Fund, The Brooke Charity for Horses and, of course, our two chosen charities....
The Fortune Centre of Riding Therapy (www.fortunecentre.org), based in the New Forest, is a very special place offering Equine Assisted Therapy to young people between the ages of 16 and 25 - who suffer from learning and behavioural difficulties.
For the past ten years Greatwood (www.racehorsesgreatwood.org) has provided neglected, unwanted and injured ex-racehorses with safe, secure and happy futures. Horses are cared for and where possible carefully retrained, many leaving to fulfil rewarding second careers in showjumping, eventing, dressage or simply hacking. Every horse remains in the ownership of the charity and is regularly checked on to ensure its continued well-being.
Cavaletti Clothing is passionate about providing you with the very best service, help and advice that we can. We want your shopping experience to be fun, easy and a pleasure and we promise to all we can to make it just that.
Your Guarantee – no hassle
If you simply don’t like something or it doesn’t fit, we will always give a full replacement or refund on any item, without query or question, as long as it hasn’t been worn. We have always said this; we will always do it. (Obviously, this doesn’t affect your Statutory Rights in the unlikely event of anything being faulty).
