new9Chiverton Equestrian

Welcome to Chiverton Equestrian, founded in 2012 to create luxury stock ties for the dressage market. After feedback from our clients, the majority of whom are dressage competitors, we found there was significant demand for high-quality silk stocks that didn’t require dry-cleaning after every competition. This demand led to the creation of STIXTOX™.
STIXTOX™ is a pre-tied stock featuring a luxurious, quality silk front and a high-quality UK woven cotton neck. This unique design allows the neck to be removed after every use and washed at 40° in a standard washing machine. The separate silk front can then be dry-cleaned when necessary.

We also produce a range of UK woven polyester pre-tied stocks finished with dazzling Swarovski® crystals. These have proved very popular with dressage riders of all ages.
