Customer Service

Shipping & Delivery

All orders will be charged a flat rate of $15.00. This does not apply to bulky or hazardous items for which you will be asked to contact us to discuss alternative shipping arrangements. Orders will mostly be sent by Australia Post Express parcel service unless this is not available. Australia Post does not provide a next day service for areas outside of state capital cities. Your order will be shipped from our Katherine shop which is in a Regional town. In our experience, most orders take 3-7 work days when we send by Express Post unless your address is in a remote country area when it may take a bit longer. Regular parcel service will be used for addresses within the Northern Territory. Bulky items such as saddle pads, are sent by regular parcel service and may take 7-21 days. We will supply you with a tracking number so that your parcel can be traced. We may at times remove boots from their boxes to enable more efficient packing. Orders can also be collected from our business premises or shipped via the customers own freight arrangement. If you do have your own freight service please select click and collect then provide the additional details to us in the comments.
