The Horseware History
Horseware started with a small team, in Dundalk, Ireland in 1985. After months of research and hand-stitching the prototype of the now iconic Rambo Original was born, setting the standard for modern rug design. Since then we have grown to become the world’s most trusted producer of horse rugs.
Founded by Tom and Carol MacGuinness, their determination to produce a rug that didn’t leak, didn’t make the horse sweat and didn’t slip led to the creation of the first fully waterproof and breathable turnout that really worked.
Today, our Rambo range is still made in the same town in Ireland under Tom’s watchful eye and with the same attention to detail and high quality material that we prided ourselves on in 1985. We are constantly striving to produce the best we can and have grown into a leading manufacturer of clothing for horses and riders. We never stop evolving; we’re always seeking out untrodden paths, pushing boundaries and finding new challenges.
We believe that because we create, we innovate. And through innovation we aim to make a difference to the lives of you and your horses.
Horseware is proud to have over 172 people employed in Dundalk where we have our sales, R&D, marketing and financial headquarters, our factory and our European warehousing.
With 47 staff employed in our Kinston office in North Carolina, and 514 people in our factories in China and Cambodia, we are truly a global company.
