Product Review (with Interview!) – Grooming Hands

Product Review (with Interview!) – Grooming Hands

I’ve gotten a lot of items to review through the duration of this blog, but rarely is something immediately tossed into my daily barn routine. Grooming Hands, a curry comb like set of gloves, is one of those products. Since I first slipped them on, they immediately earned their place in my tack trunk as my go to curry brush. One thing I like about these gloves as opposed to other grooming type gloves that I’ve seen, is that they’re…

Product Review & Giveaway – Equestrian Prep

Product Review & Giveaway – Equestrian Prep

I have had a stack of product reviews growing in the background during the past few months. There’s been a lot going on and my head is in a million different places, but I’m trying to pick back up with things. The products I’m reviewing today are bright & happy. They certainly put a smile on my face, and I only had to read so far as the collection name, Equestrian Prep, to know that I wanted to review them!…

Product Review – SMTT Sun Shirt Showdown

Product Review – SMTT Sun Shirt Showdown

Even though the skies are stormy here this week (thanks tropical storm Bill!), I’m still a big fan of sun shirts. Being blonde with green eyes, I basically am Norweigan and don’t tan well. Plus I’m a bit of a hunter/jumper princess and I like trends 🙂 When Britt of Our House on a Hill wrote a fabulous sun shirt review showcasing 3 different types, I knew I wanted to jump on the band wagon and write about the three brands…

Product Review – Horze Grooming Supplies

Product Review – Horze Grooming Supplies

I’ve mentioned this before, but I’ve been a fan of Horze products for years prior to them asking me to review some items on this blog. In my opinion, this is a great online retailer to search for solid basics… especially during their sales! One of my first orders from Horze included some grooming supplies, so it only makes sense that I would happily review some additional brushes and grooming equipment from them. Though I don’t have any pictures, I…

Blogger’s Weekend Swag Bag

Blogger’s Weekend Swag Bag

In yesterday’s Blogger’s Weekend post I alluded to the swag bags, but I thought they deserved a post of their own to give our sponsor’s some more recognition. First I want to thank Stephanie from Hand Gallop for having the idea to do swag bags and bringing treats, nose shavers and the bags themselves from The Horse of Course!  This Oklahoma based tack shop does online ordering, consignment and specializes in a lot of premium harder to find brands. Let’s…

Product Review – Cool Boots

Product Review – Cool Boots

I’ve wanted ice boots for Simon for a long time.  I feel like it’s important to do everything reasonably in my power to keep my horse sound and happy for as long as I can.  To me, icing after jumping & hard rides on the front tendons is a pretty solid idea.  Will this prohibit him from ever breaking?  No.  Will it help a little bit?  I think so. So with a Christmas gift card in tow, I ordered the…

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…

Product Review – Horze No Turn Bell Boots

Product Review – Horze No Turn Bell Boots

I love horse boots of all kinds, and that definitely includes bell boots.  Though Simon isn’t terrible about holding shoes, he will occasionally reach too far and step out of his front shoe.  When we’re in sporty sport horse mode, bell boots are a constant part of our tack routine.  So you can imagine I was excited to try these No Turn Bell Boots from Horze! Though I’m no stranger to bell boots, these were new to me in a…

Products I Can’t Live Without – EcoGold Hunter Pad

Products I Can’t Live Without – EcoGold Hunter Pad

While I have been through a lot of schooling saddle pad options with some good results, for the longest time I had a really hard time finding a decent hunter fitted show pad. First I had a Thinline Sheepskin fitted pad, but it was incredibly hard to clean and stayed an off-white yellow color.  Sheepskin is expensive, hard to clean… and super expensive!  After seeing so many hunter horses at WEF with fleece fitted pads, I said bye bye to sheepskin…

A Plethora of Half Pads

A Plethora of Half Pads

I became obsessed with half pads around 2007 when they were all the rage for hunter shows.  Everyone who was anyone was showing with just a half pad, and it was different!  I liked different. Even though I show in a fitted pad these days, I’m still very pro half pad. I’ve owned quite a few of them, and now I’m going to tell you my 2 cents about each.  Get excited. Cheapy no-name foam half pad I found at…

Product Review – Ocala Ladies Show Shirt

Product Review – Ocala Ladies Show Shirt

Before my last show, I found myself in a little bit of a pinch with my show shirt.  Pinch is a literal term here, because it was perhaps pinching at the buttons… as in it was too small.  I didn’t want to spend a ton of money and I wanted a “fun” color, so I turned to The Collection Online Store after reading some positive reviews on Chronicle and seeing good prices. I picked out the Ocala Ladies Show Shirt in…

Mountain Horse Richmond Field Boot Review

Mountain Horse Richmond Field Boot Review

I bit the bullet and got myself a pair of tall boots that retail for over $200.  I know, my budget is shocking with most people getting tall boots retailing for a lot more… but I’m poor.  Also, as previously discussed I have a stupid wide calf and I kind of hate tall boots in every imaginable way. Join me in my campaign to have half chaps acceptable in the hunters everyone! No? Okay, fine. I’ll tell you about the…
