The UK’s Biggest Equestrian Retailer just got bigger!

We are pleased to announce that our third Robinsons Equestrian Store will open in 2010, in Basingstoke, Hampshire, combining state-of-the-art equipment, our full range of products and a new, exciting marketing programme.  
Our New Megastore will be one of the largest in the UK and promises to be the most exciting retail development of its kind in Europe. The flagship 24,000 square feet store in Ashton, Lancashire, has been trading for nearly 30 years, while a second 10,000 square feet store in Cannock, in the West Midlands opened in September 2008.

From around mid January we will be looking to recruit members of staff in various roles as part of our new Retail Team.
CanAsht Robinsons Country Leisure is still a family business, the current owners having purchased it in 1971 from the Robinsons family. We have been the front runners in the Equestrian Retail World for the last 25 years and our Mail Order Catalogue and Internet Site have pioneered sales to the equestrian owner and enthusiast.

We already attract over 3000 visitors every week through our Retail Superstore in the north of England, and expect that figure to be similar in our new Basingstoke destination Megastore! At just over 22,000 square feet the new Superstore is only 5 minutes from Junction 6 on the M3 and has a huge catchment area of horse owners and riders.
It will include a massive range of Saddlery and tack including well known brands like Weatherbeeta, Thorowgood, Sabre and Cottage Craft. Riding and Leisure Wear from Toggi, Musto, Dublin, Harry Hall, Just Togs and many more. logomont300
