SaferEquine.co.uk Terms & Conditions

These terms of sale apply to all goods supplied by Safer Equine. By ordering and/or registering online via Safer Equine’s website you automatically agree to be bound by them. Sometimes changes may be made to these terms and conditions by updating this page.

  1. Orders

Any order placed by you for goods advertised on our website or via our marketing literature or at a show is an offer by you to purchase the goods selected in your order. No contract shall exist between you and Safer Equine for the sale of any goods until we have received your order and accepted it by email or telephone (which we may do at our discretion).

We will send you an order acknowledgement shortly after you place your order, notifying you that we have received your order. This acknowledgement is not notification that we have accepted your order. If we accept your order, we will notify you by email or telephone that we have accepted it prior to dispatch of the goods. If we cannot accept your order (for example (but without limitation) because the goods are found to be unavailable in the colour requested) we will notify you by telephone or email.

Goods being ordered should be checked carefully by you to ensure they will meet your requirements before an order is placed as Safer Equine will not be liable to exchange goods that have been ordered incorrectly. Safer Equine is entitled to withdraw from any contract in case of errors or inaccuracy regarding the goods or the order appearing on the site. Safer Equine reserves the right to alter prices, colours, designs and specifications at any time should it be necessary to do so. The contract is subject to your statutory right of cancellation.

  1. Availability

Safer Equine cannot guarantee that goods ordered will be held in stock for immediate delivery as goods are sometimes made to order. During busy times this may result in delivery being anything up to 30 working days, however we will endeavour to deliver within 10 working days of order and payment whenever possible. Circumstances beyond our control may make delivery times longer. When you place an order you will be given a more accurate delivery estimate. Delivery estimates are just that and may be subject to delay if cleared payment is not received for the order or details of laser etching have not been approved.

  1. Pricing

All prices are quoted (excluding delivery) in pounds sterling. Orders placed online will show at checkout an estimated delivery charge which will only be valid for orders being delivered to the UK Mainland. Delivery charges are detailed below:

OUTSIDE OF MAINLAND UK: Delivery charges quoted on orders placed via the website will ONLY apply to UK Mainland Orders. For orders to be delivered beyond the UK Mainland, delivery charges will vary according to order size and delivery location and will be quoted on an individual basis and will be in addition to that quoted on the website. These delivery charges must be confirmed by email or telephone by Safer Equine and no contract shall exist prior to written agreement on such delivery charges.

All goods ordered may be collected from Safer Equine Willoughby on the Wolds, Leicestershire if this arranged at the time of placing an order. Alternatively, a nationwide delivery service is available via a national courier or Safer Equine’s own vehicle. Please note accurate postal codes are required for courier deliveries and delivery to fields or similar places without postcodes will not usually be possible.

  1. Returns

You can return any of the goods received to Safer Equine provided they are unused and in their original condition and packing or packing of similar quality and protection to prevent damage in transit. Any items should be returned within 14 days from the date of dispatch. Safer Equine does not use a freepost service for returned items. Delivery and insurance for returning items to Safer Equine will be at the expense of the sender. Safer Equine will refund or exchange the cost of the goods but is unable to refund the delivery charge for dispatching the goods. If items have been made specifically to order for a client, then Safer Equine has the right to recover all reasonable expenses involved with designing and manufacturing any bespoke item. Safer Equine will not be held responsible for items damaged or lost while being returned to us. This returns policy does not affect your statutory rights.
