Yaris Heritage

Find out about Yaris Equestrians history and how it all started.

Formed in early 2013

Yaris Equestrian was formed in early 2013 by Simon Buckley and Ray Todhunter. Together they combine many years of experience as a rider and an equestrian manufacturer.

Simon has been riding since an early age and represented Great Britain winning a team gold medal on the pony European championships in 1999.

He has since gone on to take several national titles including the illustrious Horse & Hound, Foxhunter and numerous international successes.

Based at Hill Farm, Ings, Simon is known for his quiet and effective production of successful showjumpers. With his first hand equestrian knowledge, Simon is heavily at the forefront of developing and trialling new products.

Ray had been involved in equestrian manufacturing for the last 30 years running a successful manufacturing business in Kendal which produced rugs, numnahs and other stable apparel.

Our Aim

At Yaris Equestrian, our aim is to bring innovative and exiting ideas to create bespoke British made products to the market place

With our small team of skilled cutters and machinists, some of them with 20 or 30 year’s experience, we manufacture all of the products in our purpose built workshop near Kendal in the South Lakes. We are continually sourcing new and innovative materials to further develop our product range.

We exhibit at major shows around the UK as well as being displayed on many sponsored riders branded gear, in addition to numerous presentation rugs awarded to prize winners.

We pride ourselves on our service and we aim to meet any requirements you have for your bespoke products.
