Many thanks for your interest in the Gemini Stud & Welligogs SsangYong Blenheim Palace Horse Trials Competition 2019
The competition closed at midnight on Friday the 20th of September 2019.
Winners will be notified after the SsangYong Blenheim Palace Horse Trials.
Welligogs is one of today’s most sought-after brands for contemporary, elegant British-styled outdoor clothing. We began our story in 2000, when we were founded by Managing Director Kim Annan as the first brand to introduce hand-painted designs onto rubber wellington boots in the UK and Europe.
Ever-true to our roots as a family business, these first designs were inspired by ideas from Kim, her husband Ray and their four children. Then came our distinctive moniker – Welligogs. The name itself, says Kim, “came from nostalgic childhood memories of a loving home where everyone affectionately knew their wellington boots as “Welligogs”.
