Marilyn

Marilyn

Marilyn is the founder of Snuggy Hoods having realised a need for quality equine undies at affordable prices here in the UK almost 30 years ago.

She started manufacturing Snuggy Hoods and Silky Bibs in the attic of her house in Box, Wiltshire, supplying local businesses such as Wadswick Country Store and Pointings Saddlery.

Now retired, she still takes an active part in developing new products - offering her small stud of show ponies as willing models.

Becky

Becky Becky returned back to Wiltshire from London in 2001 to join her mother, Marilyn, expand and develop Snuggy Hoods.

Between them, Becky and Marilyn moved the business out of the Attic and onto the Midlands Industrial Estate in Holt. Since then Snuggy Hoods have grown out of two units having burst out of the seams, finally settling at unit 1.

Having three children, Max, Charlie and pony mad Eugenie, Becky spends time between the unit, school run and home. Becky also has two show ponies (home bred Maud and Shetland Barney) out on the show circuit so she is regularly picking up ideas and tips for new products!
