5 ways to show your horse you’re grateful this Thanksgiving!
Thanksgiving takes place in the United States this Thursday, November 23 — it’s a day set aside for giving thanks for the bounty of the harvest and a time to count one’s blessings. As equestrians, we know that one thing we’re thankful for every year — actually, make that every day — is having horses in our lives!
Here are five of our favorites from the SmartPak online catalog that will show your horse how grateful you are this Thanksgiving.
1. The Groomage. Treat your horse to a mini-massage and help ease away tight muscles and increase circulation. (Honestly, just looking at this thing makes us really want one for ourselves…)
2. Back on Track Fleece Blanket. The ultimate nice warm hug for your horse: Back on Track’s unique ceramic fiber technology reflects your horse’s heat, providing heat therapy pre- or post-ride. Especially good for horses with sore muscles or cold backs, any horse can benefit from a Back on Track fleece this time of year!
3. SmartPak Soft Padded Leather Halter. Stylish, safe and comfortable — how can you go wrong? Plus, customization is available with an engraved halter plate. While this may just be another toy for your horse to fling over the fence in turnout, at least for a few moments of buttery-soft-leather comfort, he’ll know how much you care.
4. Baker Sheet. Flattering on literally every horse, a Baker sheet is a barn staple and a timeless classic. Okay, so maybe this one is a little more for you than for the horse, because there’s no way he notices or cares what pattern of plaid he’s wearing, but either way we’re sure he’ll appreciate a nice warm layer for those colder late autumn nights.
5. SmartCookies. Because when it comes down to it, the fastest way to a horse’s heart is through his stomach, and SmartPak specializes in guilt-free snacking. (We can’t necessarily say the same for your Thanksgiving spread…)
Happy Thanksgiving, Horse Nation! Go SmartPak, and go riding!
