Cork Farm Equestrian does not price match on sale, clearance or past seasonal items where discounts have been applied by other companies, or on delivery charges. Cork Farm Equestrian will not price match on items found on auction sites such as Ebay or Amazon. Price match purchases must be made by email to info@corkfarmequestrian.co.uk.

Which items does Cork Farm Equestrian Price Match?

Almost everything we sell. The item must be identical, including model number, size & colour. The item must be in stock and available to purchase at that price from another equestrian retailer & we reserve the right to verify. We do not price match some personalised or special order items.

Goods ordered from Cork Farm Equestrian for delivery outside the UK may be subject to import duties and taxes which will be levied once the parcel reaches its destination country.

Contact your local customs officer for full details and regulations.

WEEE Regulations
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive is now UK law. The legislation aims to make producers pay for the collection, treatment and recovery of waste electrical equipment. The regulations also mean that suppliers of equipment like high street shops and internet retailers must allow consumers to return their waste equipment free of charge. The amount of WEEE we throw away is increasing by around 5% each year, making it the fastest growing waste stream in the UK. Much of the UK’s WEEE ends up in landfill, where the lead and other toxins it contains can cause soil and water contamination. This can have a harmful effect on natural habitat, wildlife and also human health. Many electrical items that we throw away can be repaired or recycled. Recycling items helps to save our natural finite resources and also reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending electrical goods to landfill. Distributors of new Electric and Electronic Equipment (EEE) have a part to play in reducing the amount of WEEE going into landfill sites. Cork Farm Equestrian Ltd is obliged under these regulations to offer our customers free take-back of their WEEE on a like-for-like basis when they buy a new Electrical or Electronic product from us. Under the WEEE Regulations, all new electrical goods should now be marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol shown below: Goods are marked with this symbol to show that they were produced after 13th August 2005, and should be disposed of separately from normal household waste so that they can be recycled.

Bit Bank

Cork Farm Equestrian offers a Bit Bank service that lets you try out our bits on your horse before committing to purchase. Due to time constraints & shipping costs this service is available to UK customers only. Bits are sold with a 30 day trial period & if unsuitable must be returned to us within 30 days from the date of purchase. We strive to send new bits to our customers each time; however due to stock levels this is not always possible. This means that you may receive a used bit to trial. If you do receive a previously trialled bit & you are happy with it you can choose to keep the bit or you can return it to us in exchange for a new bit - subject to current new bit stock levels & any postage costs.

It is the customer's responsibility to take care of the bit. Please make sure that the bit is kept in good condition throughout the trial period. The customer is also responsible that the bit is kept safe from theft and loss, as you cannot request a refund for the bit after the 30 day trial.

It is recommended that the bits are returned via a recorded & insured postal facility as we cannot be held responsible for any loss or damage in transit to returned items.

The 30 day trial period will start from the date of purchase & if the bit is unsuitable or you would like to request an exchange for a new bit the item must be back here with us within 30 calendar days from the date of purchase maximum.

On receipt of a returned bit we will refund you the price paid minus a variable hire charge for returned bits depending on the bit purchased. The charge will be specified within the items description.

Should you want to return the bit to us please make sure that you clean the bit thoroughly. Please clean the bit with warm water only to remove any residue. We will thoroughly clean and disinfect all bits returned to us to kill any germs & bacteria. We also request that you thoroughly clean & disinfect the bit yourself again on receipt as a double precaution as we cannot be held responsible for any diseases, infections, viruses, mouth sores, ulcers or any other medical condition that appears after trialling one of our bits.
