Modern society, especially in sports, is moving towards the search for and the use of materials that can provide the utmost comfort and facilitate the most demanding technical performance in which smartly designed clothing can improve athletic results.
Ashbourne International Fashion Ltd, previously Ashbourne International Saddlery is a family run company established by well known equestrian husband and wife team Tony Newbery and Fiona Dunning who, having over 35 years experience in all areas of the equine industry, listen to their clients' requirements and source products that provide these concepts for you all to enjoy.
They exceeded all expectations by introducing to the UK a phenomenon that has taken Europe by storm in the ANIMO ITALIA range of equestrian clothing.
Their ever-changing, elegant designs are hand made in Italy from machine washable, non- iron technical fabrics that look and feel amazing.
The extraordinary elasticity of the fabrics leaves the body free for any movement, and their special composition ensures constant body temperature, and hence protection from excessive heat or cold. The silver inserted in the yarns releases large amounts of ions that are extremely efficient in combating the proliferation of bacteria, which are the main source of unpleasant odors. The body's humidity and perspiration are transferred to the exterior, providing a pleasant sense of dryness and psychophysical well being. U.V. rays are automatically rejected, increasing the sense of coolness of the skin. The lightness, the soft touch and the ease of maintenance of the garments, complete the high performance of this clothing, which represents a modern variation on the classic, to enjoy sports and leisure time in comfortable, elegant technical garments. ANIMO is an exclusively Italian product, which stands out not only for its advanced technology, but also for its lively, colourful collections that reveal the typical charm of products.
The new Animo Italia collection is now available to buy in the UK from Ashbourne International Fashion Ltd and its Official Stockists.
Whilst Tony and Fiona are still very much involved in the business, the day to day running of Ashbourne International Fashion Ltd has been taken over by their son Ben Dunning and his team of loyal Animo sales assitants.

PLEASE BE AWARE:
Our ANIMO cliental might be aware of websites arising and e-bay sales that are selling a few items from ("older season") ANIMO collections at discounted prices. They state that ANIMO do not allow this practice and they claim to be doing a service for all ANIMO cliental by sourcing products from shops other than the through official route of the UK distributor. As this official body, we have had many complaints concerning items purchased from these sites and as these now appear to have been more in the public domain recently giving ANIMO unjustified bad publicity we thought it appropriate at this point to state the correct facts:
5. ANIMO ITALIA are putting measures in place to stop this practice.
Each of our Official Stockists have been supplied with an image determining a genuine Animo retailer.
