25th Mar 2004, 02:57 PM
Have any of you bought anything from Barnstormers.co.uk - I am looking for a new pair of Jod's and really like th look of the Shires two tone saddlehuggers jod's for everyday use and they seem to be the cheapest @ £26.55.
What are your experiences with barnstormers and do any of you have the jod's? are they good quality?

I've never bought from Barnstormers but I have millions of saddle hugger jods and I love them. Their all I buy now. Their great value for money, a brilliant fit and so comfy!! And they wash and wear really well. There cheap and tuff enough that I can wear them around the yard but look good enough that I wear them to show in to! I bought a pair of "posh" jods about a month ago, my first pair that were not saddle huggers and I paid £75 and have worn them once and will probably not wear them again! There so uncomfortable and just dont fit right. I would definetley recommend saddler huggers though!

Thanks I think I might indulge myself - I have seen a woman at a froends yard in a pair but her's seem very red and the web site describes them as cerise and black not red and black.
Might opt for the purple and black pair - so many decisions :confused:
But will definatley invest thanks:)

I have the purple and black ones - love them!:D
I have bought stuff from Barnstomers and they have always been very good with me, if there is something not in stock - they give you a call straight away and let you know - very good service
The jods are cotton though, so I found that they started to wear thin at the seams, but they lasted a year!

I have bought from barnstormers and they were fine. Their aftersales service was good as the delivery idiot (Parcel Farce) left the order in my neighbours open garage (thinking it was mine) on the last day before he went away for 3 months. Barnstormers sent me a replacement and a PF freepost label to return the 1st lot when he returned.

I have used Barnstormers loads of times, they are pretty good normally although last time I placed an order I never got anything. They took my order over the phone but never put it through. The only bad thing about the jods is that they havent got the same kind of stretch as other jods as they are made from more cotton, they can go a bit saggy after youve had them on a while and the bottoms (the ankles) are really big. Nice and comfortable though. I have the black and grey saddlehuggers and the navy/cambridge two tones. I was going to order the red checked jods but I have since discovered Gorringe checked jods which are a better fit. Happy Shopping!

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh :o guess I really should read things properly, hee hee :rolleyes:

I only see 3.57am if I have a drink in my hand and am having a really good time!!!:D Otherwise I am tucked up in bed like a good girl :p
Thanks for all you advice on Barnstomers, I've also found another web store www.cleesaddlery.co.uk, they do free delivery on all orders over £20.00, the jodphurs themsleves are more expensive than barnstormers but once you add the delivery on they work out more expensive - anyone used clee saddlery???
26th Mar 2004, 11:33 AM
All my experiences of 357am are from the other side - getting up at that time to go somewhere.
The website is cleesaddlery.co.uk (no www in front).

Free delivery on orders over £20?! Thats brilliant! I dont think ive ever placed an order under £50 when its horse related. I will have a look later, see if they have any jazzy jods to add to my collection :D
26th Mar 2004, 12:21 PM
katie - they only take orers over £20.00, delivery should take 5 working days, just waiting on a reply with regard to sizes not sure which size woudl be best for me - not good when they say inches rather than UK sizes :p
But will let you know how I get on and how good there service is

Bertie, just re read your post about the woman with bright red jods - Barnstomers sell the cerise and black or the rose and black, (amongst others) both of which are definitley pink (my friend has the cerise/black ones and theyre lovely) but you can actually get red and black ones so theyre probably the ones you saw on the woman (i like those ones!) You can get them in even more colours than barnstormers sell if you buy directly from Shires.
26th Mar 2004, 12:54 PM
katie - I've been on the shires web site and they work out nerly £36.00 including delivery which is more than I wanted to pay for them considering the covered in mud and horse S**t as my lovely boyf describes it when I come in from the farm :D
26th Mar 2004, 01:07 PM
Barnstomers are best really as they offer 10% off, if you want a colour they havent got, they would probably order in for you. Ive seen the purple ones btw and theyre really nice, go for them :)
26th Mar 2004, 01:26 PM
Do you reckon the secind row down 1st pair on the left are red???
On the shires web they are called cerise??
26th Mar 2004, 01:38 PM
They look red to me or they could be the rust ones. My friend has the cerise ones and they are definitley the same colour as the ones in the big picture. Which colour is it you want?
Mind you, the second pic on second row are called Rose/cerise - the cerise being the inner colour, which is quite similar to the first pic second row.
26th Mar 2004, 01:49 PM
this is where my problem starts each website calls the colours slightly different :confused:
The shire website: - http://www.shires-equestrian.co.uk/cgi-bin/WebObjects/ShiresEquestrian.woa/28/wo/rw7xaijuHtUevdkyLBxvf0/188.8.131.52.13.1
Then press enlarge
And they call the "red" ones Cerise/Black :confused: :confused: :confused:
26th Mar 2004, 01:56 PM
They look nothing like the colours they are meant to! The 'blue/black' ones are purple!! If you want a normal mid pink, order the cerise ones, if you want baby pink order the rose ones. Ive seen a few different colours of these jods and I would say that barnstormers are a lot more accurate with the colours than shires (for some strange reason!)
26th Mar 2004, 05:43 PM
Barnstormers can get everything from Shires if you ask them, it may not been on the website, or in their catalogue, but they have gotten things for me in the past after I asked, and all at their cheaper price!
May be another thought - but there are always the shires jods on ebay - even cheaper sometimes from there?

Talking of saddlehuggers jods, has anyone bought a pair of their hipster jods? they look a bit odd but me and my friend are sick to death of wearing jods with waistbands that just about come up to your armpits, or slip down in the waist and go all saggy in the crotch/bum area.!!!! Not at all attractive when your trying to flirt with the v.nice looking farriers apprentice...(Sigh....)
7th Apr 2004, 02:12 PM
I haven't tried them but they look good for a change - mind you horse riding is not a past time you are ever going to particularly attractive doing - when your hair's a mess because your heads got that seaty in your hat or you've got that many layers on you look like a michelin man and after to that your wearing pants which make your bum look like the size of small country even though you've chosen black ones!!!!:D
If you get any let us know how you get on with them - I have ahd to out my purcahse on hold due to having to replace 3 of my car tyres on saturday at a cost £140.00 :eek: :eek: jod's are the last thing I can afford ;)
Oh yeah keep us updated on how successful your flirting is too!!!:p
