Yaris Racing History & Heritage

We have two brands: Yaris Racing, which is specifically aimed at the Horse Racing market and Yaris Equestrian, which is specifically aimed at the equestrian sports – Showjumping, Eventing and Dressage.

Every product is custom-made with care from start to finish, and we take great pride in delivering a first-class product, made to your exact requirements, worn at racecourses and arenas around the world.

Yaris Racing, along with sister brand, Yaris Equestrian, is proud to be a member of Made In Britain. As a British manufacturer, Yaris Racing are proud to wear the Made In Britain Marque and support the longevity of British business, specifically manufacturing.

A long history of quality manufacturing

Yaris Racing is the sister company of Yaris Equestrian which was formed in early 2013 by Ray Todhunter and Simon Buckley.

Ray has been involved in equestrian manufacturing for over 30 years owning and running a successful business in Kendal which produced horsewear under the well respected Kingshead brand.

Having already sold Kinghead and retired, Ray was tempted out of retirement to help form Yaris and has since been joined in the business by his son, James who has acquired Simon’s shares in the company.
