We only accept orders when we’ve checked them

We contact you to confirm we’ve received your order and then we contact you again (normally within 24 hours to confirm we’ve accepted it.

Sometimes we reject orders

Sometimes we reject orders, for example, because a product is unexpectedly out of stock, because you are located outside the UK or our delivery areas, as stated on our website or because the product was mispriced by us. When this happens, we let you know as soon as possible and refund any sums you have paid.

We charge you when we accept your order or we supply your product

However, for some products we take payment at regular intervals, as explained to you during the order process. If your product is goods (rather than digital content or services), you will own it once we have received payment in full.

We charge interest on late payments

If we’re unable to collect any payment you owe us we charge interest on the overdue amount at the rate of 4% a year above the Bank of England base rate from time to time. This interest accrues on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You pay us the interest together with any overdue amount.

We pass on increases in VAT

If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.

We’re not responsible for delays outside our control

If our supply of your product is delayed by an event outside our control, such as production industrial strikes or other circumstances beyond our reasonable control, we contact you as soon as possible to let you know and do what we can to reduce the delay. As long as we do this, we won’t compensate you for the delay, but if the delay is likely to be substantial you can contact our Customer Service Team on info@stableoutfitters.co.uk or 01245 984548 to end the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for in advance, but not received, less reasonable costs we have already incurred.

Products can vary slightly from their pictures

A product’s true colour may not exactly match that shown on your device or in our marketing or its packaging may be slightly different. Because our products are handmade, all sizes, weights, capacities, dimensions and measurements indicated on our website can be out by up to 2%.

You’re responsible for making sure your measurements are accurate

If we’re making or supplying the product to measurements you provide, you’re responsible for making sure those measurements are correct. Find information and tips on how to measure on our website or contact our Customer Service Team: info@stableoutfitters.co.uk or 01245 984548.

  • goods that are made to your specifications or are clearly personalised; and
  • goods which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery.

The deadline for changing your mind. If you change your mind about a product you must let us know no later than 28 days after:

  • the day we deliver your product, if it is goods, for example a saddle, If the goods are for regular delivery (for example, a subscription), you can only change your mind after the first delivery. If the goods are split into several deliveries over different days, the period runs from the day after the last delivery.

How to let us know. To let us know you want to change your mind, contact our Customer Service Team: info@stableoutfitters.co.uk or 01245 984548.

We reduce your refund if you have used or damaged a product. If you handle the product in a way which would not be acceptable in-store, we reduce your refund, to compensate us for its reduced value. For example, we reduce your refund if the product’s condition is not “as new”, price tags have been removed, the product-branded packaging is damaged or accessories are missing. In some cases, because of the way you have treated the product, no refund may be due. Our Customer Service Team: info@stableoutfitters.co.uk or 01245 984548 can advise you on whether we’re likely to reduce your refund.

When and how we refund you. If your product is a service, digital content or goods that haven’t been delivered or that we’re collecting from you, we refund you as soon as possible and within 14 days of you telling us you’ve changed your mind.

Nobody else has any rights under this contract. This contract is between you and us. Nobody else can enforce it and neither of us will need to ask anybody else to sign-off on ending or changing it.

If a court invalidates some of this contract, the rest of it will still apply. If a court or other authority decides that some of these terms are unlawful, the rest will continue to apply.

Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. We might not immediately chase you for not doing something (like paying) or for doing something you’re not allowed to, but that doesn’t mean we can’t do it later.
