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, conveniently situated on the Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire borders, it's hard to imagine that it started in a rather modest shed twenty years ago!
Who would have thought that from selling just a few bags of horse feed all those years ago, we are just about to have our fourth 'moving to Wysall' Anniversary. Not only that, we have put on two successful Fashion Shows, two very well supported Fun Dog Shows and two Tractor Ted Roadshows, all in aid of some very worthwhile charities. 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 fourteen 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 thirteen year Riseholme veteran with more animals than I can count! Karen has been with us for three years and is in charge of our vastly expanding clothes & accessories side as well as our in-store display. Becky has taken over from her sister Katie and works the late evening shift and Saturdays. Karen Wadeson, a friend and customer for many years is now working on Monday afternoons. Karen has two young event horses to keep her busy and is very knowledgeable on the equestrian side! Linda (Katie & Becky's Mum) works in the shop on Fridays and will be a much needed help to me in the office. Kate has been with us for six years, originally in the shop and now running our website and social media. 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! 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.
