TAS Country : April 26th 2012
2012 Friday, April 27, 2012 Tasmanian Country 25 At home on the funky range KAROLIN MacGREGOR 'My idea was to be able to source different products and still keep the prices down so that I'm competitive with online IF YOU want to buy something different for your horse at this year's Agfest, new business Funky Pony Australia could be just what you are looking for. The business was established about 12 months ago by Dimity Hirst. Mrs Hirst said that she had identified a potential market for unique horse rugs and riding wear that were not commonly available in the state. ''We don't have the benefit of big trade expos like Equitana,'' Mrs Hirst said. ''So because of that, a lot of people were going interstate or online to get different products that you don't find in the major saddleries. ''My idea was to be able to source different products and still keep the prices down so that I'm competitive with online.'' Mrs Hirst has gradually increased her range of products, which now includes a variety of paddock rugs in different colours and patterns. She said the paddock rugs were all either 1200 denier or 1650 denier, which ensured they were hard-wearing, and also came in funky colours and patterns. The range includes cotton and show rugs, stable runs, fleece- lined rugs and three types of saddle blankets. Mrs Hirst also sources a range of top-quality riding and casual- wear clothes as well as children's western boots and clothes. This will be Mrs Hirst's first time exhibiting at Agfest and she has been busy building up her stock in preparation for a busy three days. ''I'm going to have heaps of stock so hopefully people will be able to find something they like,'' she said. Mrs Hirst's stall will be in the Equine section at Agfest. Skivvies to keep warm SKIBO Australia manufac- tures beautiful skivvies and Helenmary Macleod invites everyone to visit her site at Agfest to see the range first hand. Skibo Australia is based in the heart of Western Victoria where the chilly southerlies blow. Helenmary started de- signing and manufactur- ing a winter skivvy range in 1998.
