A little history
When the first PADD store was opened in 1974 the three founders had a passion for getting together and discussing horse matters and this passion was shared by their first customers in la rue de la Cavalerie (Paris, 15th arrondissement).
This passion for horses and quality products quickly led to the brand establishing itself as the market leader for equipment for the horse and rider.
Since then, while remaining true to its initial well-earned reputation, PADD has continued to evolve, adapt, and keep up with its customers' changing expectations.
Our business mindset
Even though we believe that having an excellent network, a good choice of products, an extensive range of brands, the optimum store size or competitive prices is the basis for an effective and dynamic business, one thing stands out above all other considerations: our unique business mindset.
At PADD, none of our sales team will greet you with an artificial 'sales-person smile' or a scripted sales patter. There is Tony, Rachel, Laetitia, Yann and other men and women who actually have a name, even a first name, a face, experience, expertise and above all, a passion, which they share with you 100%. It is not uncommon to see them sharing a coffee with a client on the edge of a show ring, visiting a customer in the evening to let them try out a saddle at home, or even billing and cooing with the baby, a horse rider of the future in a romper suit, to leave mum in peace to choose the reins she wants.
Either in-store or on the Internet you only have to make five purchases in two years to qualify for a 5% discount (valid from your sixth purchase) based on the total value of all your purchases over that period. Purchases made more than two years ago are considered as expired and are not taken into account.
Over a period of 2 years you make five purchases with an average value of €70. Total = €350 -> You will receive a discount of €17.5 on your sixth purchase (*).
All this is calculated automatically by our system. You don't have to do anything.
There are some great surprise in store for you ...
