Hi, my name is Alice O’Brien and I am the ‘A’ in A & J Boots and my Mum Jill is the ‘J’. I have owned horses all my life and currently have 4 ponies of varying size! Quite a few years ago I bought two Shetland Ponies to show and bring on, but it wasn’t until I wanted to keep their feet and legs clean that I started to look for boots or leg wraps to fit them. I struggled to find any at a reasonable price and the right size so I decided to use my own skills to make myself some boots!

I have a degree in Surface Design and Textiles and I have had experience working as a skilled sewing machinist. A & J Boots has been established now for 8 years. My Mum, Jill, has been a skilled sewing machinist for 40years and brings experience to the team.

The boots I made did the job perfect for a year or two but the Shetlands moved on to fab new homes and the boots went with them. Over the years I have developed the design and tried and tested many different ideas and now settled with the current style.

A & J Boots originally made hand made Velcro fastened boots/leg wraps for horses and ponies.
They are suitable for a substitute for bandages, bed boots, keeping legs clean for shows – between classes, working in etc.

We now offer a wide variety of products for horses, dogs, and people!

We pride ourselves on being unique, quality and hand made by us in North Wales.
