Arch & Alex was created through our shared love of animals. A&A was named after our horse and hound who were both given a second chance in life. Arch is an off the track racehorse and Alex was a rescue dalmatian. The A&A four-legged employees you see on our social media pages are also rescue animals - Panda (Wolfhound X), Mia (Boxer X) and Tigger (Bengal X).
Animal rescue volunteers do amazing work in helping animals in need with limited resources. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing a rescue animal find his or her forever home with a loving family. Today's blog includes a 30sec video of Mia - a year ago she came into foster care unable to walk from her injuries. Now she is running like a normal dog and enjoying life in her forever home.

If you are an animal rescue volunteer, accredited OTTB retrainer or have adopted a rescue dog or horse, A&A would like to offer you free shipping on our fabulous Masta dog coats and horse rugs - while stock lasts. Our dog coats are exceptional quality and come in a choice of styles - waterproof for outdoor adventures, or snugly plaid pyjama style for those indoor naps. We have a number of fantastic Masta horse rugs available, from cottons to turnouts and cooling rugs. Please use coupon code "SupportRescue" at the checkout to redeem this offer. We would love to see pictures of your rescue animal if you are willing to share your story in the comment box.
Are you looking for a new waterproof jacket to keep you warm and dry while you're out riding your horse, walking your dog or doing farm chores in this wintery weather? If you like jackets that are a little more vibrant and sporty-looking than your standard riding jacket, check out our maven jacket from Tottie. This jacket is so fab it was picked up and featured by Elle magazine in the UK!
The jacket is padded for just the right amount of warmth but features breathable fabric and underarm ventilation so that things don't get too steamy inside when you get active. It has an internal zip pocket with headphone hole and a detachable hood. We love the reflective Tottie Sport logos, comfortable lycra cuffs which keep the wind (not to mention the dirt and hay) out, and soft waterproof outer lining which doesn't rustle too much when you move like some raincoats do. Most of all, we love the colours which coordinate so well with many other items in the Tottie range - navy blue with light blue highlights, and berry with bright yellow highlights.
Practical, functional and stylish. And only $150. We think we may have found the perfect winter jacket...
We are getting some good feedback (and some cute pics!) from customers who have bought our Climatemasta turnout rugs. Customers love the ergonomic neck design, which makes sense when you think that horses spend 70% of their time grazing. The fit of the rugs and the one click fastening system is also getting the thumbs up. Archie's owner Karin was so happy with the rug that she bought her other horse Hartley one too. Here is a photo of them both looking rather dapper.
Who is this masked horse? Gorgeous Raah, below, is also toasty warm and comfortable in his new Climatemasta with 200g fill. This winter, navy and purple really is the new black...
A&A is about the horse and the hound. Since the first post was about Archie, this post is about our canine companions. The Masta waterproof and quilted dog coats were extremely popular at the MI3DE and we sold out of a lot of sizes. We will be ordering some more from the UK soon so if your dog's size isn't on our online store, drop us a line.
We love receiving cute pictures of fur kids modelling our products. If you send them, we will post them - we love pictures of happy customers! A big thanks to Mia, Panda, Mr, Turbo, Penny, Bentley and Sadie for looking cute for the camera (ignore the cat that photo bombed the last picture) and sharing their 15 mins of fame.
Pooch lovers, stay tuned for the Masta hi vis collar and lead sets coming soon to A&A....
This photo is too cute not to share. Boxer pup Mia got her paws on mum's Hunt Club sweatshirt and ain't letting it go. They are so snuggly and warm that even a puppy can't resist a Hunt Club cuddle. This pup is a fashion trendsetter....
