Phil Jobsons, Managing Director commented that
event was a great success and a fitting opening of our Penrith
shop. The response reflects the huge rise in horse ownership
and we are matching that market shift with much more emphasis
on equine advice and products whilst not changing our core
the success of the first Equine evening, Jobsons are to hold
another such event on the 28th November for anyone who was
unable to attend.
