Thoughts on Product
Primarily I purchased this product, to try and help stop one of Blossom’s rugs from rubbing her mane out. I was applying to the affected area once a day, as well as applying to the inside of the rug.
I am now currently using it as a grooming spray – where I have been spraying it onto a goat hair body brush and brushing it over Blossom’s body. This has really helped removing any excess loose hair/dirt that has been left after brushing her.

I found this product worked well as a grooming spray, which has a nice scent. I was able to get Blossom’s coat really clean and shiny.
I found when I was using it for rug rubs that it worked okay, it did prevent her mane from coming out, but she was still slightly sore from the rubs. I think that a lycra hood/neck cover would be more effective.
I would recommend this product to other horse owners!
I have been wanting to try the Hawkins Organic Buck Off Fly Repellent for a while now, after I saw it being advertised in the July issue of Absolute Horse. I like the idea that it is made of all natural and organic ingredients, as well as being manufactured in Suffolk – I like to support local businesses!
I finally got round to ordering some, but instead of buying just the fly repellent I chose the Summer Offer which includes:
Buck Off Fly Repellent (500ml)
Best in Show Shampoo (500ml)
Lemon Aid Anti-Fly Wash
Summer Holidays Hoof Gel (150ml)
It costs £25.00 (plus £6.95 postage), meaning you save £9.00!
You also have an option to switch the Best in Show Shampoo to the Blanc Canvas Shampoo.
I placed my order on the 2nd August (late afternoon) on the Hawkins Organic website, which was quick and easy to use. I payed sercurely with Paypal. It was expected to be delivered within 3 days of it being dispatched and it was delivered quickly – I revicieved it on the 4th August.
Everything was delivered in a cardboard box and each item was wrapped in a good layer of bubble wrap to protect everything in transit. Also in the box was a card advertising the brand and also a discount code for my next purchase (which I will defiantly be using!).
All of the products smell amazing and I cannot wait to start using them. And an added bonus was a free sample of the Winter Warmer After Exercise Wash, which again smells amazing and has a hint of Cinnamon, Ginger and Clove, giving it a really Christmasy scent!
Overall I am really impressed with my 1st experience of using Hawkins Organic and will defiantly be using them again in the future. The website is easy to use, the customer service was brilliant and the delivery was super quick.
This product can used to help achieve tight, even plaits, tame manes, adds wave to hair, keep tails in shape, controlling stray hairs and can be applied to feathered legs to give the appearance of fullness. It is not sticky or greasy and can be applied to wet or dry hair.
You can apply the mousse either directly onto the mane/tail or it can be sprayed it into your hand and then applied to the mane/tail. The product should then be rubbed into the mane evenly to give the best result.

Thoughts on Product
Oh my goodness – this product is amazing! It is easy to apply, it does not leave your hands feeling greasy or sticky after applying to the mane/tail and does what it says on the tin! I found that it left no stray hairs, thus laying the mane all to one side (this has been a problem in the past as Blossom’s mane is very fluffy!). I had more grip of the hair when plaiting, creating a tighter neater plait. I also like the idea of a mousse instead of a spray, allowing you to apply it to specific places with ease.
I am going to rate this product – 5/5.
This product is amazing and I would defiantly recommend to anyone who has a horse. This product should be in everyone’s grooming kit, especially if you are having to plait up.
So I have treat Blossom to a two sets of the Le Mieux Snug Boots. I’ve had my eyes on these for a while, as I have been looking for a pair of boots which help to support her legs and at the same time are breathable. And as I had some money left over from my birthday, I thought why not treat her to some.
I got a pair of front and a pair of hind boots, which I got in size Medium. And I chose the black option, as I thought it go with her tack (I like to be colour co-ordinated!).
The boots were £42.50 per pair.
I really like these boots – they look smart and are really easy to put on and take off. They fit Blossoms leg perfectly. The boots have a protective back that helps to protect the tendons and ligaments within the lower leg from knocks will the horse is working. I really like the straps, with the ‘Le Miuex’ detailing on the bottom strap and the poppers that secure the boot are so much easier to use. The boots are really light.
Overall, I am very impressed with the boots and am looking forward to using them more in the future!

Thoughts on Product
I really liked this product – it does what is says on the bottle. Blossom started off with a patch of mane which was about an inch long (due to one of her rugs rubbing it out during the winter!) and after using the product for a month and a half, it has now grown about 3-4 inches and has restored the thickness as well.
I applied the Mane & Tail Builder with a sponge and applied once a day for the first week and then every other day.
I was advised by the lovely Supreme rep who came into the shop a while back to use this product along with the High Shine shampoo and Moisturise & Condition spray. I washed the rubbed area once a week with the High Shine shampoo and applied the Moisturise & Condition after the area was dry. I found that these products really helped to get a better result.
I begun applying it on the 8th of April.
Day 8 (16th April) –
I could defiantly notice a difference in just over a week. At this time I had pulled the rest of Blossom’s mane to tidy it up and then plaited it to help lay her mane.
Day 14 (22nd April) –
By this time there was a noticeable difference from day 1 and 8, the area was now a lot thicker and it had grown by about half an inch. I had been plaiting it along with the rest of her mane it keep everything in place.
Day 40 (16th May) –
We have now been using this product for over 5 week and we have now have a lot more mane! The affected area is now nearly the same length as the rest of her mane. All I need to do now is to pull the rest of her mane to level everything out!
So it has been about four months since I started using Supreme Products Mane and Tail Builder and I have to say that you cannot tell that four months ago Blossom had part of her Mane missing.
Her mane is now to all the same thickness and length. Where it looks like nothing ever happened!
I am going to rate this product – 5/5.
This product is a Spring must have! I really like the scent of this product, it is easy to apply and does what it says on the bottle! I was able to see a slight difference within a week! Just remember it will not happen instantly – regrowth of hair will take it time! I would recommend this product to anyone who has problems with manes/tails being rubbed out!We were featured on the Supreme Products Facebook page, how exciting! Blossom is famous (kind of!!).
