Discount Jodhpurs

I shall be popping into my nearest Aldi this weekend, apparently they are targeting the 'horsey set' as the Daily Mail headline puts it. They are launching their own cut-price equestrian clothing range to kit out horse riders for no more than £50 (god, I'm sure I paid more than that for just jodhpurs in the past). They don't say whether their range will include ancillaries such as crops or whips.

Equestrian Life magazine editor Zoe Molesworth described Aldi's move as 'fantastic' and added 'Riding, whether for competition or leisure, is at an all time high in the UK'.  I wonder if leisure would broadly include my particular interest.

It occurred to me Aldi is German owned, right, so they're bound to be decent quality. And as for crops well German riding instructors are noted for their strictness aren't they 

or have I just been having dreams again.

Have a fun weekend.

I guess that the Marketing team at Aldi have come up with a product line to coincide with the upcoming launch of 5 Shades of Grey. It is a new slant on "something for the weekend ?" but for their female shoppers. You may find that they are stocking a new range of hairbrushes.

LOL. I shop quite often at Aldi, but I never saw it in that light before. Shopping there in the future will never be quite the same.

LoL Ronnie, happy shopping, you'll have to update us :)

I hope you find and get everything you want, and I hope P thinks you paid too much - what a great outcome.

Knowing how frugal P is you might not get the reaction you want.

Here, Aldi is a grocery store.

Wow Ronnie...I haven't heard anything like that being offered in our local Aldi's...will have to go check. You'll have to let us know how the shopping goes. ;)

MrJ said...

Yes, I think so - but ain't a dreamy mind a joy forever?

Minelle Labraun said...

Hi Ronnie, I had to laugh because I knew you would write this post as soon as I saw the article in the Mail!!
Love Jan,xx

ronnie said...

Cat - I hope to pop in this weekend:) Thanks.

MrJ - Yes, you are right. Thank you.

Minelle - I think its only UK stores stocking them. Thanks.

Jan - And you were right:) Thanks.

Aldi sells riding gear in the UK?? Man, they really do sell everything over there. Aldi is basically a discount grocery store here in the US, but when I visited Germany, I noticed an Aldi catalog that sells excursions and getaways, furniture, and more stuff for the home--I wish they would expand like that here! I could get implements at a discount!

ronnie said...

Autumn - Yes Aldi classed as a discount store but have some good things. Had no idea they sold furniture and the likes in Germany. Thanks.

Hi Ronnie, :) Hope that you had shopping success- in whatever way that means to you! ;)

I have never heard of Aldis. Sounds like quite an interesting store. Always new things to learn around the land. Many hugs,
