Our story


Way back in the 1870s a young man named Harry Hall began his career as a tailor (and was rather good at it). In 1891 he started his own business “Harry Hall Esq” a bootmaker and tailor - and so the story begins.

After World War 2 horses started to become an animal of pleasure and leisure instead of being a workhorse or a war horse. Harry Hall Esq turned its focus to equestrian clothing as horse riding became a popular pastime.

By the Swinging Sixties, the international equestrian elite were all dressed in Harry Hall - even the stables regiment at Buckingham Palace. Harry Hall Esq had well and truly arrived on the equestrian scene.


Today at Harry Hall the team continues the dedication and passion shown by the great man himself by offering affordable products and insurance policies, as well as membership, to the Harry Hall One Club.

One Club provides members with an online community that supports one another through the ups and downs of horse riding and ownership. There are also some great member benefits and discounts on lifestyle and equestrian brands, monthly competitions and a free members’ magazine twice a year.

The team is a friendly bunch and between them they own 12 horses, 10 dogs, 1 cat, 1 goldfish and not forgetting Happy the tortoise. They work hard to develop some of the very best equestrian brands and products just for you. All backed up by our wonderful customer service team that is always ready at the end of the phone, email or live chat to help you out.


Right now we are ‘holding our horses’ because coming very soon to HarryHall.com is the next generation in rider wear.

The design team, headed by Beth and Alice has been busy behind the scenes, researching the very latest technologies to help today’s riders. We are chomping at the bit to show you their creations plus a whole host of yummy new brands and products for you and your horse.

After being touched by the stories of equestrians-second, key workers-first and struggling local centres, we decided to help where we could. Harry Hall's heroes was a pledge to help the NHS and donate prizes to deserving equestrians.
