Ridersxoxo was the brainchild and dream of Melanie Byrne, a EA Level 2 Coach and Rider, who for many years just never had the time for much else other than Riding and Coaching.... then whilst having to take time out from Riding due to health reasons, with the help of Robert and Sarah her dream and theirs became a reality and RIDERSxoxo was born.
We wanted to create something special, something we felt the Australian Equine World needed, a "One Stop Shop" for both Horse and Rider offering an array of brands not readily available in Australia. Sold to Riders by Riders. Our Vision was to create a unique environment with excellent quality classic and core products that look great both on and off the horse, perfect for anyday… everyday!
With the selection of amazing BRANDS came the need for a amazing building to house RIDERSxoxo, and so with the help of our architect keeping it real and recycable came the Shipping Containers idea. Just what we needed on the end of our existing Indoor Arena, and just to make it even more challenging two stories high!! It took a while to finally be finished but we think it was worth the wait.
Having finished the build,and sorted the Brands a logo was the next port of call,having established the name RIDERSxoxo. (RIDERS came from the Novel RIDERS by Jilly Cooper and the xoxo originated from the TV Show Gossip Girl. ) After much debate, who would have thought it so difficult, we were very lucky to have Artist Micheal Zavros come to our rescue and design the RIDERSxoxo logo.
We have now opened our doors to the Equine Community and our mission is to personally Style you and your Horse, so you can look and perform at your best wether it be for Training, at a Clinic or in the Competition Arena. We also stock everyday general Horse and Rider necessities such as Rugs, Grooming Gear, Shampoos, First Aid Items, Saddlery Equipment ect. All you have to do is book an Appointment so we can give you the personal service you deserve to "Style your Ride". If you are not Local, then you can now go to our Web Shop and purchase our products Online, using our "Complete The Look" to achieve your required Equestrian Style without having to visit the Store.
This is just a little about us and our journey and we are so excited to be able to share RIDERSxoxo with you and we truly hope you love the our products as much as we do.
