By purchasing from Horzehoods Ltd and offering payment you are confirming you have read and are happy with all our terms and conditions below.

Your rights are protected under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations which came in to effect on June 13th 2014. The Regulations aim to harmonise the rights of consumers across the EU.

 

ORDERING INFORMATION

Our aim is to dispatch all items the same working day Monday to Friday on all orders made before 2pm each day. Your order will be despatched via the shipping method you choose at checkout. For some parts of the UK (Scotland, Highlands and Islands a TWO Day Service may apply).

Next Working Day Delivery is dispatched Monday to Friday. Any Friday orders will arrive the following Monday as a working day. Should you require a Special Saturday Delivery please ring +44 (0) 161 480 7333 or email admin@horzehoods.com to arrange an additional courier cost for the team to arrange in sufficient time.

DELIVERY

 We recommend upon ordering via our website or setting up your Personal Shopping account with the Horzehoods website that you include a mobile number if possible.

Any mobile numbers left within the ‘shipping address’ details will be used for the courier text alert service. Upon your order being dispatched you will receive a text alert on your mobile which will contain your consignment number and a scheduled delivery date. If you have not left a mobile number an email will be sent, we suggest at the time of ordering to check your spam folder for any related Horzehoods correspondence. On the day of your delivery schedule a 1 hour window slot will be either text to the mobile number supplied or sent via email, this also gives an option to adjust your delivery, whether it be a change of address, number or day and time slot.

If your goods are lost or damaged during transit you must contact the team via office or email with your order number and any evidence such as photos of the unopened package as it arrives. In order for us to make a claim against the courier responsible we do need to report within 5 working days of the dispatch of original consignment.

If recipient should not be available when our courier arrives the driver will leave a card and consignment number in a convenient place. Our courier also takes a photo of the front entrance, porch or door to any property where there has been an unsuccessful attempt of delivery. This will be automatically added to your consignment number history and is available at any time to view using your consignment number.

Our courier will always attempt redelivery within the UK on 3 separate visits. The 3rd visit a driver will try and drop your parcel at a local pick up point as a different approach to trying to be successful in your parcel reaching you. Please read and follow up text or email correspondence to track your local drop of point.

.

If we provide tracking and the item is showing as delivered at the address specified it means we have despatched the order to the courier on your behalf and provided tracking evidence. Should this rare event happen we will open an investigation with courier, once courier have reported back to us with their report we can then update you. As a good will gesture in between a parcel showing as delivered being located we can on occasions send a duplicate order and reclaim our original order once the investigation and original parcel is located; but unable to offer refunds until couriers have investigated and reported back to ourselves.

GAREMENT HOOD & BODY SET POLICY

This product consists of 12 Colour Collections which have become famous in their own right. All our regular hoods are designed to be super lightweight and mixed with a polyester base to give the ultimate durability, shine and texture to the coat and overall 'show finish'. The list of uses for our Horzehoods is endless with customers noting amazing results to the mane and coat in just one nights use making them perfect for any competition discipline, they hold plaits in beautifully so you can get that extra hour in bed in the morning by plaiting and prepping the night before. Horzehoods have also been chosen and used with great success by owners who have ponies and horses which suffer from medical conditions such as sweet itch. Our unique design and fit makes them so popular in today's industry and are a number one choice for professional and amateur riders worldwide. We have several different fabrics we make our hoods from to be able to tailor all customers needs. This product is perfect for all seasons due to not being a thick grade and has a mix of specially manufactured fabric chosen and tested by our team. 

Made to be super lightweight. After years of testing we have found the most effective fabrics on manes and coats are those that consist of light fine weight blends, heavier grams of fabric cost no extra to make, however it is not as effective for keeping the mane and coat the best it possibly can, by using this super light fabric blend you will notice an instant transformation in the horses coat. Heavier fabrics can be more durable to snags and rips but give a chance of causing chaffing and rubs, overheating, itching, therefore the team decided the priority was the functionality.The seam and stitch work on this fabric is the superbly manufactured. 

 **This product has not been designed for turnout use. Due to the fit customers like to use these for turnout with good success; however please note size chosen, fit and the way the product is used is the owners responsibility. Horses are live animals and as a brand we cannot control an animals actions in the paddock or stable. Whilst only minimal there is always a risk of injury in a paddock both with or without wearing a product. Owner takes this risk and full responsibility. Our garments are tried, tested and approved but come with no guarantee your living equine could not get it off as is the case with any brand or horse wear product. No liability is accepted in the event of an accident, whilst freak accidents or hood movement is rare it can happen.**
Horzebodz Sizes
Sizes available from Mini Range 2ft3/6 up to Big Range 7ft9. Full Bodies are always much harder to fit than hoods as all horses have different length of back, width, depth. The fit will very much depend on the length of the body of your horse, every horse is slightly different - but on a shorter bodied horse, you may find your Horzebodz will cover more dock
HorzeBodz Fit Notice: We do not recommend using the body if there is excess length hanging over the rump of your horse, this will cause the body to drag backwards which may cause a pull up on the face, please try on clean before deciding it is a good fit. The Team would rather exchange for another size to try as oppose to using the incorrect size on your equine.
