Claire is our very own Comfy Horse Customer Services Manager. She’s a whizz in the office, looking after the rest of the team with their trial products and managing the reviews, and she’s responsible for despatching orders and customer queries. So, if you get in touch with us, you’re likely to have a lovely horsey chat with Claire! Oh, and all those wonderful piccies on Instagram are down to Claire too!
Although Claire doesn’t currently have her own horse, horses have played a huge part in her life. “I first got into riding when I was about eight,” says Claire. “I went on a horse riding kids party and got the bug!”
Then came the nagging to mum and dad that so many of us experienced in our younger days! Claire’s parents weren’t horsey but she started riding every weekend and then began helping out at the riding school at weekends and during school holidays.
Claire got her first pony on loan at 14 and then bought her first horse, Ty, when she was 18. She also studied Equine at College and worked in the industry until she was 30, running her own yard and working for some lovely people.
Comfy Horse Founder, Laura, started sharing Claire’s horse, Vergil, after Claire got married and had children; “now my babies have two legs rather than four!” Claire laughs.
Claire loves the Comfy Horse range of products and is very aware of the benefits they bring to horse and rider. “If I still owned a horse now I would definitely trial the VIP saddle pad, the Franklin balls and the MDC stirrups,” she says. “The reviews are great and I’m very impressed with the theory behind each one. I may do a bit of riding in the summer to sample these myself!”
We might just hold you to that one, Claire!
