A Horse Tack ID Tag Guaranteed for Ten Years? Even if I Lose it?

We got tired of ID tags we bought – regardless of the shape or size – fading away, getting lost or, just falling to bits…

…so we made a better one. Out of solid brass.

A few Ten Year Tags FAQs

Good question! When people ask this about dog ID tags, most people answer you by starting to quote the outdated Control of Dogs Order. We’ve written a whole page on why this is Order is out dated, not fit for purpose and generally just annoying.

No such so-called law comes into play for our large, wooden-footed dogs though. Name and mobile number are our favourites, but whatever you need. Don’t worry if you want a lot on the tag – if you have a long address or there are specific emergency details – we’ll make you a bigger tag to ensure it all fits and is legible. Just let us know!

It’s what it says on the tin. We got tired of having to get a new ID tag every year, sometimes more often, because the previous one had either disappeared or become unreadable. So, as we say above, we decided to make a better one. And guarantee it for Ten Years.

A Catch?

We haven’t got a catch, we’ve a cap, which we need to ensure we stay in business and can ensure the horses of the world are properly tagged!

We provide three completely free replacements on the basis that our horse tack ID tags are made to last Ten Years. However, we understand tags can get lost no matter how hard you try to look after them, so it’s on the basis of losing one every two and a half years we agree to provide up to three additional tags completely free, after which it’s £2.99 to cover consumables, the production costs remaining free (UK orders only, overseas we charge a small shipping cost in all instances).

Do you think that’s fair? We’re easy to contact and would love to hear what you think.

Oh go on then. We use Royal Mail and charge £2.99 for First Class* shipping.

*Everything we do is first class here at Ten Year Tags.

Royal Mail says 5 to 7 days for Rest of World and 3 to 5 days for Europe. Sometimes it’s quicker, sometimes slower. Do remember to give us 3 days in the workshop to make your dog name tag by hand too of course.

We supply you with a super-strong split ring, that we fit on the tag here.

We’re well aware the split ring is a weak link, especially rubbish ones often sent out with horse ID tags from other places. We tested dozens of them here, from falconry to deep sea fishing (TOO strong and a bit too small. Impossible to use without split ring-specific pliers) all tested for strength, usability and sustainability.

The split ring we send out is solid enough to not break should – in the case of dog ID tags – the dog owner accidentally attach the lead to it. We’ve tested for this extensively, with Dweezil, our BIG dog. Yes Ten Year Tags are definitely tested on animals. It won’t be dropping off your horse’s bridle because of a not fit for purpose split ring. 

Our strong split rings are made by a lovely company in the midlands.
