Product Review – Horze Tendon Boots

Product Review – Horze Tendon Boots

I am a lover of boots.  Specifically  – horse boots.  Usually I don’t admit to being much of a tack ho, but boots are my weakness.  If it weren’t for extreme self control, I’d have a million pairs.  So when Horze contact me about reviewing their extremely popular tendon boots, I jumped at the chance. In the past I’ve ordered fancy fleece protection boots from Horze, and was happy with the quality. For me, sizing was an issue since some…

Equestrian Gift Showcase – Gigi & Tea

Equestrian Gift Showcase – Gigi & Tea

Monogram is a lifestyle, and that is totally apparent in the equestrian world this year with the rise of vinyl monogram shops.  Turns out, you can monogram everything!  Breeches?  Check!  Helmet? Double check!  There are lots of stores out offering these services, but I choose today’s feature based off of great customer service experienced by friends of mine plus super quick, friendly communication with Hannah herself! Helmet monograms are quite individual. Are you big and swirly?  Me personally, I’m small &…

Equestrian Gift Showcase – Tara Kiwi

Equestrian Gift Showcase – Tara Kiwi

There was a great showcase earlier this week with fine, chic equestrian apparel and today I’ve got another one!  Tara Kiwi, contemporary equestrian apparel, was new to me when Fly On Over suggested that I check them out for the showcase.  Browsing the site, I liked what I saw.  Lots of fun equestrian designs in a variety of colors and styles! Right off the bat, I was drawn to the very fashionable cut and shape with a cute equestrian flair. Business owner…

Equestrian Gift Showcase – One Horse

Equestrian Gift Showcase – One Horse

It was from the retail savvy blog of the $900 Facebook Pony where I first learned of the cool designs that are One Horse.  I love horses and horse clothing, but tend to go for the more subtle equestrian look than LOOK THERE’S A GIANT PONY ON EVERYTHING I OWN. One Horse has trendy + equestrian + subtle down with their designs, at least in my opinion!  Here are some of my favorite designs, which I can go ahead and tell…

Equestrian Gift Showcase – Loriece

I am really excited about today’s showcase company.  Plus, they have been super generous and donated a beautiful item for a giveaway… but don’t scroll to the bottom and ruin the surprise! Today we feature Loriece!  At first the name was new to me as well, but now this company has a very firm place on my ‘want’ list.  Loriece has a wide variety of jewelry and accessories “made for riders by a rider”, and their product offerings are absolutely beautiful.  I had such a…

Equestrian Gift Showcase – Noble Outfitters

Equestrian Gift Showcase – Noble Outfitters

I have been a fan of Noble Outfitters ever since I reviewed some of their fantastic socks earlier this year.  Communication with their team has been excellent, and they have some great product offerings that seemed like a no brainer for the Equestrian Gift Showcase! First off, gloves make an excellent gift for equestrians.  They fit in a stocking, are almost always useful and often even come close to that $20 mark that many Secret Santa gift exchanges have.  Noble…

Product Review – Horze Reflective Boots

Product Review – Horze Reflective Boots

Once upon a time I lived and rode my horse in places where people would hunt often.  It always wigged me out, and I would opt to not ride in certain areas during hunting season because I didn’t have any bright orange gear to identify myself as “not a deer.”  I know I’m not the only one who has faced this problem before! Enter the good people from Horze.  They have an entire line of reflective horse products to keep you…

Equestrian Gift Showcase – Higher Standards

Equestrian Gift Showcase – Higher Standards

Many of you have heard of the amazing leather cleaning products from Higher Standards by now, but just in case you haven’t let me share the delight with you! The skinny?  It’s fabulous tack cleaner that works as a cleaner and conditioner, and smells amazing.  I personally use the Fox Vanilla Lavender on all of my tack and prefer Higher Standards hands down to any other tack soap I’ve ever used. At $14.95 for a full size, this soap is comparable price wise with…

Equestrian Gift Showcase – Swanky Saddle

I believe it was Ainsley Carter who first brought the phrase, “Monogram is a lifestyle” to my attention – and I certainly love it!  There are lots of great vinyl monogram companies out there for the equestrian world (sneak peek – we may be visiting one later this holiday season), but Swanky Saddle first caught my attention on instagram with an entirely different kind of monogram. Check out this saddle plate folks.  Have you ever seen a saddle plate as cool…

My Favorite Horse Products Under $5

My Favorite Horse Products Under $5

There are a ton of really awesome, really expensive equestrian products out there.  They are usually beautiful and made more beautiful with monograming and bejazzling and all other sorts of fun things. On the flip side, there are the unsung heroes of my tack trunk.  Here are my favorite products for under $5 that I use on an almost daily basis. Menthol Rubbing Alcohol This has many uses.  You know when you’re a really gross head sweat’er who lives in…

Product Review – Dark Jewel Designs Browbands

Product Review – Dark Jewel Designs Browbands

When I was super sad and down on top of on a 100% spending freeze, I was oh so excited to win Sprinkler Bandit’s blog contest for a custom beaded browband from Dark Jewel Designs.  Beaded browbands aren’t super popular in the hunter/jumper rings, and I’d figured I would get two “fun” bead strings and one pretty conservative one. Let me say that when I got the browband and beads in the mail the quality far exceeded my expectations!  Pictures…
