Welcome to Forelock and Load
The equestrian and country store to visit in East Anglia.
Conveniently located just off the A14, between the bustling racing town of Newmarket and the quintessential market town of Bury St Edmunds. Our shop is situated in the most beautiful Suffolk Threshing Barn which was lovingly restored in 2012.
When you enter our building, the first thing you will be struck by is the incredible structure of our barn. It really is one of the finest examples of a 16th century Suffolk barn you will find. You will then discover a huge range of clothing, footwear, country wares, guns, saddlery and more.
You will find all of your favourite brands under one roof, including Barbour, Harkila, YETI, Le Chameau, Hull, Hornady, Seeland, Jack Pyke, Horseware, Bombers Bits, Charles Owen, Champion, Stubben, Schockemohle, Ariat, Samshield, Aubrion and many more!
We offer a full riding hat, body protector, boot, half chap fitting service for all riders. We also offer advice on gun fit, buying your first air gun, shotgun or rifle. We have scopes, thermal and night vision for those starting out, to the seasoned hunter who would like the best the market has to offer.
We have our own range on site, that you are welcome to book. We also use this for zeroing your gun, trialling new sights and ammo.
We are very easy to find and you can get into our carpark in a 7.5T lorry. We ask for those in bigger rigs, to park on the road! We have a huge free carpark that is easily accessible and there is a fabulous pub in the village a short walk away for those who would like a leg stretch and a longer stay. The village Post Office is also conveniently located within our premises.
