A Warm Welcome From The Riseholme Team...
My Team from left to right...... Lesley.... Tara.... Alan.... Bill.... Clare.... Karen.... Becky.... Seth.... Karen & Kate.
When you look at our Animal Feeds & Country Store in Wysall, on the Leicestershire/Nottinghamshire borders today, it's hard to imagine that it started in a rather modest shed nineteen years ago!
Who would have thought that from selling just a few bags of horse feed all those years ago, we have not only just had our third Anniversary of being in Wysall, but also also put on a very successful second Fashion Show in aid of Macmillan. Times have changed and we have now vastly expanded our Lifestyle & Equestrian Clothing collections along with a quality range of Gifts and of course those Equestrian Supplies & Services for which we are so well known.
About my Team - my second in command is Lesley, who has been with me for thirteen years. Lesley previously had a successful career producing show ponies and hunters and now keeps Lurchers for showing, racing and working trials. I was delighted when my daughter Tara (aka Tiggy) in the above photo with me, wanted to join us when we moved to Wysall and am proud that she is a valued full-time member of the Team. My part time staff include Clare, a twelve year Riseholme veteran with more animals than I can count! Kate who has been with us for five years and runs our website and social media. Karen has been with us for two years and is in charge of our quickly expanding clothes & accessories side as well as our in-store display. Karen Wadeson, a friend and customer for many years and now working on Monday afternoons. Based in Hickling Pastures, Karen has two young event horses that keep her busy! If you come in on a Friday you're more than likely to bump in to Bill who helps unload our feed deliveries and has been with me for longer than we dare mention! Some of you may recall Katie who was with us on Saturdays who has now gone to Uni and her sister Becky has taken over. Finally, Alan and Seth are out on the road on a Saturday delivering large orders.
So, as you can see, we offer years of experience! We look forward to welcoming customers old and new to the Animal Feeds & Country Store in Wysall where we continue to offer our normal comprehensive range of feeds for horses, all farm animals, poultry and game, as well as feed for all kinds of pets and wild birds. We are also delighted to be part of the Bridleway Equestrian, a select group of independent retailers who have chosen an exclusive collection of equestrian products at excellent value and great quality.
We offer a full range of complementary products to support our Equestrian and Farm Feeds such as electric fencing, wormers, boots, riding hats, horse rugs and dog beds, along with rubber matting for your stables, a large choice of bedding, different sizes of wheelbarrows, stable tools and ancillary equipment. IT'S A ONE-STOP SHOP!
We are also proud to support Local Producers enabling us to offer our customers a great choice of locally produced cakes, as well as locally grown potatoes (in season), local free range eggs, local jams & honey and handmade chocolates.
We are also pleased to offer all of our customers the opportunity to sign up to our Loyalty Card Scheme. This has been a great success with over 3,000 customers enjoying the benefits of this scheme. Please ask a member of staff for more details when you come in.
