Two original staff members have come together to take over an equestrian shop.

Alison Leonard and Jo Lawrence have taken over the running of Equicentric in the Old Bishop’s Palace at Tower Farm, Little Downham, which was opened 2003.

As well as providing equestrian equipment for riders and their horses, the shop now caters for dog-lovers, wild-bird feeders and people who keep chickens.

There is an industrial washing machine for horse rugs, dog beds and doormats and electric fencing equipment is also available.

The shop offers tea, coffee and cakes as well as advice on everything horse related.

Joint owner Mrs Leonard said: “Jo and I have always had a small involvement in the shop alongside another lady.

“She had to move up North and circumstances meant she couldn’t come back so we decided to take over completely.

“It is a beautiful building and, as well as all the equestrian equipment, we are branching out to do more country wear, things for dogs, chicken feed and so on.

“We find there are a lot of dog owners coming here who want various things and a lot of people keep chickens in their back garden.
“We employ local people and are trying to support the villagers so that they don’t have to travel into town to get stuff.”

Equicentric is open from 10am-6pm Mondays-Wednesdays and Fridays, 10am-8pm on Thursdays, 10am-5pm on Saturdays and 10am-4pm on Sundays.
