Beautiful bridle & excellent service. Alix took great care to ensure the fit was correct & had plenty of options to choose from. Follow up service was excellent ensuring my horse & I were happy with the bridle.
Just received my hybrid halter... It is just gorgeous!! Love your brand! Keep up the good work! From a Canadien fan
This is the first review I’ve ever left, the customer service is THAT GOOD! Alix went above & beyond to make sure the bridle was exactly what I wanted & made it easy to figure what measurements to take.
Beautiful product!! Excellent service, prompt replies to enquiries & willing to go that bit extra to satisfy their customers. I just ordered my 2nd bridle, I love my first one so much & my horse finds it super comfortable.
Beautiful quality halter, great fit, quick delivery and dispatch. Thank you so much 😊
Absolutely over the moon with my AGD bridle!
I was nervous about buying online but it exceeded my expectations!
The leather is so soft and moulded to my horses head straight away!
Before purchasing I asked Alix several questions and she always had plenty of time and answers!
I strongly recommend Alix and her beautiful products!
I purchased a beautiful custom double bridle and was so pleasantly surprised by the quality! It fit my mare perfectly. I will definitely purchase future bridles from AGD.
I can not recommend AGD enough! Both bridles I’ve purchased from here have been extremely high quality and look gorgeous. Alix goes above and beyond and provides amazing customer service.
Amazing bridles and halters, super customer service and a great Aussie business. Thanks so much Alix
Kelly Koolstra-Aplin and Kerri Hill began their adventures together over 30 years ago, as young horse crazy girls at their local pony club in the small country town of Seymour Victoria, Australia.
It is a friendship that has stood the test of time and adversity. When Kerri was 16 a serious horse riding accident left her in a wheelchair, but that didn't hinder their friendship. Kerri and Kelly’s bond became stronger, and Kelly would ride Kerri’s horses at shows for her.
As they grew, their life took them on similar paths but through different fields and to different countries. However, no matter what their careers were or where in the world they went, they remained the best of friends, in constant contact and there for each other when the chips were down.
Kerri went on to be a make up and special FX artist, moving to America in 1995 to work in Hollywood. Meanwhile Kelly, also a make up artist and stylist, moved to Queensland and did weddings and special events.
When they both got into photography, Kelly photographed and interviewed people at tattoo conventions, rock bands and music festivals, while Kerri photographed show horses and high-end fashion. Around the same time, they also began to write for international magazines; Kelly for rock/tattoo magazines and Kerri for equestrian and fashion.
In 2012 Kerri moved back to Australia with her family, and in 2016 Kelly and Kerri began a new adventure together, an equestrian magazine they named Equestrian Country.
Combing their talents, they developed a Vogue-style equestrian lifestyle magazine to appeal to all equestrians all over the world. Each year, they traveled to America to do photo shoots with celebrities, utilising their combined experience and contacts in the rock and Hollywood worlds to transform Equestrian Country into something that hadn’t been seen in another equestrian publication.
Kerri was already a customer of AGD and loved the quaintly and customer service she received. So when the opportunity recently came up to buy AGD Equestrian, Kelly and Kerri both jumped at it.
AGD was perfect for them to once again combine their talents, business experience and passion for anything and everything equestrian, and join up for another amazing adventure.
AGD’s founder, Alix has worked extremely hard to develop the original and top quality English and Italian leather products for which the brand is known. With similar tastes and an eye for detail as Alix, Kelly and Kerri are proud to get behind the brand and put their name to it as the new owners.
Alix is set to remain with AGD for awhile to work closely with Kelly and Kerri as they learn the ropes of the business. With all their combined knowledge and passion they guarantee you a fabulous experience and the high quality, handmade products only AGD can offer.
If you have any questions please don't hesitate to email us.
Alix, an Australian equestrienne, founded AGD in 2016, based on 20+ years of her riding & equine research.
"I only want the best for my horses, so I only make the best".
