In Store Policy for all items bought from Forelock and Load IP29 5AX

If you’re not completely satisfied with your purchase, simply show your receipt and return the item to us in its original condition within 7 days for an exchange or store credit/voucher.  Items that are discounted or special orders are non-returnable.  The items must have all the tags in tact and on the item and must not have been used.

Faulty items may be returned for a full refund, exchange or store credit.  You will on most occasions have to firstly email photos of the fault to us, bring in the item and then we will liaise with the manufacturer.  Please note that this can take up to 14 days before we get feedback from their warranty and claims departments. Faulty items may need to be returned to the supplier for confirmation of the fault prior to an issue of refund.  Forelock and Load cannot accept any responsibility for third party actions.  Please note that general wear and tear will be taken in to account when deciding if the item is faulty.

All returned items, excluding faulty should be unused and must be returned in original packaging with all enclosed labels attached and all documentation.

Please see the link below for our full returns and faulty items guide.

We will not be able to process an exchange or refund without the original receipt or on items that are ordered in as a customer special order or on bespoke items.  Refunds can only be made back to the original card the transaction was made with due to legislation.

Only one discount can be used at a time.  Discount codes cannot be used against already discounted items and this is reflected upon checkout.  Online Discount Codes can be used for Click and Collect and Home Delivery but not for items that can only be purchased in store.  Shipping Discount Codes cannot be used against Saturday Delivery.

Black Friday Deals 

Black Friday deals exclude all secondhand goods, guns, ammunition (both rifle and shotgun), feed, bedding, already discounted goods, customised/bespoke goods and hire items.  Black Friday purchases cannot be returned when bought in store, you will only receive a refund if the item is faulty.  Black Friday deals on line have to be returned within 14 days.  Please refer to our faulty goods terms and conditions within this page.


We at Forelock and Load are thrilled that we give our customers the chance to try before they buy on some of the high-end equestrian goods that we offer.  All HIRE items must be returned in a clean state as they would have been sent out, if they are sent back dirty a £10 charge will be deducted from any refund due.  Any item returning later than the 21 day hire period as set out will not be entitled to a refund unless previously agreed via email to Forelock and Load.  Any item which has not been returned back in the condition it was sent out in will not be refunded.  Please do not punch holes or try to modify any of the leather goods in any way as this will void your refund.  We strongly advise you use a courier service to return the HIRE items to ourselves with the relevant insurance taken out to cover the item should it go missing.  We are not responsible for any hire items which do not make it back to us outside of the hire terms.  Please note that discount codes cannot be used against HIRE.
