Environment & Sustainability
Designing for Longevity
At Hairy Pony, we are working hard to do our part to work towards a greener future for our planet, and we want to help you do your part.
Hairy Pony is proudly dedicated to manufacturing a range of horse grooming products that are not only exceptional in quality & style, but also eco-friendly, safe & sustainable. The constant cycle of consuming & replacing low quality, cheap goods is wasteful & harmful to our environment. This is why we always strive to create quality products that really last, with timeless style in mind - so that our rubbish bins are not overflowing with cheap, broken products, or items that become unfashionable or obsolete in years to come.
Sustainable Product Packaging
At Hairy Pony, we want to have a positive impact on people, animals & our planet. To us, this means creating fair working conditions & working together with our suppliers to ensure we use our planet's resources wisely, and inspire our customers to live a more sustainable life. By making wiser decisions like recycling our packaging, together we can make a difference!
Our shipping boxes are made using recycled cardboard & our packing tape is biodegradable, so you can quickly & easily recycle these.
Recycled Plastic Bottles
All of our bottles are made with rPet Plastic. rPet Plastic bottles are created using post-consumer plastic waste, which is converted in to bottles for us, greatly reducing our carbon footprint.
We think hard to make the best decisions about the way we work, from how we choose materials, to how we design, produce, transport, sell, and even what happens to our products at the end of their life.
Better For Your Horse, Better For Our Environment
Many of our products harness the power of natural ingredients to nourish, soothe & protect your horse's skin, coat, mane & tail - because we believe that natural is best. When purchasing your Hairy Pony products, look out for the badges on our product packaging for key product features, so you can make the best choice for you & your horse.
Australian Owned & Made
Hairy Pony is 100% Australian owned & operated. With the exception of only a few, all of our Hairy Pony products are proudly made in Australia.
It is our vision for the future that we are able to help reignite manufacturing industries & professionals that we have been unable to source within Australia so far, and have every Hairy Pony product manufactured in Australia.
At Hairy Pony we don't just love horse, we love all animals! We believe that cruelty free products are not only better for our environment, but better for our horses too. All products marked with our cruelty free badge are created in PETA approved laboratories.
Many products that are tested on animals also contain harsh chemicals like sulphates, parabens & synthetic dyes, which can irritate & dry out the skin & hair - another great reason to opt for cruelty free when shopping for your horse's grooming products.
Natural & Organic Ingredients
Our cleansing & conditioning product formulas are structured using key natural & organic ingredients. We harness the natural power of soothing, healing & anti-bacterial properties found in essential oils to gently cleanse, moisturise & nourish your horse's skin, coat, mane & tail.
Our natural shampoos & conditioners are often recommended for horses with sensitive skin as our gentle,
anti-bacterial formulas help to maintain naturally clean, healthy hair with a fresh, natural scent.
Sulphate & Paraben Free
Many horse shampoos & cleaning products contain harsh chemicals like sulfates & parabens, which do a great job at cleaning, but also strip the hair of its crucial natural oils. Sulfates often leave the skin & hair feeling dry & brittle after cleansing, and can be very irritating on sensitive skin.
Our shampoos & conditioning products are free from harsh parabens & sulfates, instead formulated using natural ingredients & anti-bacterial essential oils to support your horse's natural skin & coat oils, leaving hair naturally soft, fresh & moisturised.
Our vegan products are formulated using only plant ingredients. Vegan products are not only kinder to the environment, but also kinder to your horse's skin & hair. Many non-vegan products contain harmful chemicals that can build up on your horse's skin & hair, causing irritation, preventing nourishment & damaging the hair & skin.
Our vegan formulas are gentle on your horse's skin & coat, and will leave your horse's coat nourished, with a healthy, natural shine.
Silicone coats the hair, preventing moisture & essential oils from reaching the hair shaft, causing weak, damaged hair over time. Our silicone free products gently cleanse & condition your horse's skin, coat, mane & tail with the help of essential oils & natural ingredients.
Our cleansing & conditioning products work with your horse's natural skin oils to maintain healthy, nourished skin & hair, with a naturally beautiful shine.
