Equisentials is a BETA approved tack shop in Billingham that was established in December 2004. We pride ourselves on offering good quality, affordable horse wear and riding equipment. We stock a wide and expanding range of Equine Essentials for newcomers to horse riding and horse care or the more experienced horse owner alike.

We offer a range of services for our instore customers including qualified hat and body protector fitting, rug cleaning and repairs plus clipper servicing and blade sharpening. Rug Cleaning and Clipper servicing are both provided to us by third parties who are leaders in their field in our area.

Nichola or Greer are in the shop 99% of the time so you’ll know you’re in great hands. We’re both fully qualified BHS riding instructors (previously BHSAI, now known as Stage 3 Coach) and have many years of horse ownership between us.

After qualifying as a riding instructor Nichola taught at a couple of local riding schools teaching many people of different ages and abilities, including university teams and Riding for the disabled. Nichola worked on a dressage and eventing yard in Iowa USA for a couple of years. She has been around horses since a young age and has owned them for more years than her bank balance would care to remember. Nichola has three children, 1 1/2 of which are horsey. She is a fountain of knowledge to many people. Nichola is usually our (self-elected) ‘Employee of the Month’.

Greer has been running a local livery yard since 1995. She has competed in most disciplines over the years as well as a spot of hunting. She’s currently training and competing her homebred mare in British Dressage and hopes to ride her first medium test at some point in the near future. She has more recently started coaching again when time allows and is a registered APC.
