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 look at the rest of the bag!


Riding Warehouse sent a 15% off coupon, bumper sticker and lip balm.  I know a ton of blogger’s are big fans of this online store, so I’m super excited to use my coupon on a new schooling helmet as soon as I figure out what I want!

Noble Outfitters sent one of my favorite pairs of socks – the Xtreme Soft Boot Sock!  I’ve been seeing the Noble Outfitters products in more and more tack stores, and hear rave reviews.  If you haven’t tried something by them, I recommend it.

One Horse sent really cute koozies with their logo on them.  Now every time I take a sip out of my favorite hard cider, I’ll be reminded that I need to pick up the new American Thoroughbred shirt!  I love that design.

The Dover Saddlery store in Austin donated a fun product, Poo Poo Paper.  They’re horse themed note cards that are recycled from poo!  My husband finds this particularly hilarious.

Finally, Horze gave us a $15 coupon off your online order.  I’ve reviewed a lot of Horze products on the blog before, and am a big fan of a lot of their tack.  Their apparel is nice too, and I actually already used my coupon to put in an order for a new polo shirt.


Because you can never have too many polo shirts!

Thanks to all the sponsors (and Stephanie!) who made the swag bags possible.  Since I know a lot of bloggers wanted to come to the weekend but couldn’t get here due to weather or finances or whatever, I wanted to giveaway one of the bags on the blog.

  1. Poo Poo Paper!! How hilarious!!!!! Such goodies :).

    Midwest would be totally wonderful! I wish I was in the position to host one. 🙁

  2. Can we TALK about that American Thoroughbred design? SERIOUSLY? I love it. I already have 3 of their shirts and now I demand another.

    Ah. Love you One Horse.

  3. Most locations aren’t an issue for me, although meeting somewhere close to where I live would be awesome so I’d recommend the Ohio/Kentucky area on that. I assume no one wants to come to Michigan…
    I would have been in Austin if I wasn’t buried in taxes, so I recommend the meetup no be in the January through April 15th time frame, lol.

  4. I mean, you really can’t have a party without swag, and next year we’ll totally have to do swag AND t-shirts!

    I am pretty good with wherever- I can get to most parts of the country within 8 hours!

  5. I would be fine going to Texas next year. But it would make it sooo much easier if it was on the west coast. California would be awesome, or really anywhere in the PNW.

  6. East Coast mid Atlantic area. Sounds like an awesome get together. I enjoy reading everyone’s posts about the visit.

  7. I think a Rolex blogger weekend would be awesome!! Not only can you watch the show, but there is the rest of the park, shopping, the Tb training center and lots of farm tours. Plus there are some great places to eat there!

  8. I’m easily up for a west coast (California!) meet up but I’m down for going anywhere once as I have a job (soon!) and my thesis is done (never!).

  9. East coast! Mid-Atlantic (Delmarva/PA/WV/NJ) is the easiest, but anything on the east coast would be considered.

  10. We so need to have a Bay Area one. I know there’s a bunch of us around here and it’s like the most expensive place in the country to visit so out-of-staters could get to visit SF while staying with local bloggers and kills 2 birds with 1 stone.

    I’ll also second a Rolex meet-up. I hope someone organizes that so I can benefit from their planning skills.

  11. I didn’t even know about this “bloggers’ weekend” until today! Lol….but for next time, somewhere in TX, OK, NM, or CO would work for me. I live in the Texas Panhandle, so I’m pretty central! 🙂

  12. Toronto, Canada! Thats a bit silly though so maybe the North-east like Boston,MA

    Second choice is mid-Atlantic or south-east!

  13. East coast! Or, if it happens in the winter again… we should just all meet in Florida xD It’s also easy for me to get to California (lots of friends in the area) but the middle of the country is a lot harder.

  14. I would love to have it in the midwest, especially the Kentucky area. However, if it needs to be held in winter, then someplace that isn’t prone to snow would probably be better.

  15. I have already met a handful of bloggers thru email, texting and then phone calls besides actually meeting face to face. Sprinkler Bandits was recently in the area and hadn’t thought about it… lol

    I’m in AZ and so far the people I have met are all over- CO, TX, MN, WA, CA, IN and one in Canada. There is also one in Germany that we exchanged emails for a while, so anything is possible.

  16. We carry some NO gear at the tack store I work at and the tall boot socks they make are the best! Im sure that the boot socks are just as great 🙂 I LOVE mine!
