Equestrians have their priorities straight: spend money on our horses, not on ourselves. That’s why my picks for today are all about outfitting your horse.
Even those of us who don’t like to spend money on ourselves are suckers for our horses. We can’t get enough of of shopping for those four-legged money pits who have nickered their way into our hearts. Horse Nation’s own Morgane Schmidt summed it up best with this comic:
Clearly, we have our priorities straight. That’s why my editor’s picks are all about outfitting your horse. Without further ado, here are my Thursday picks:
SmartPak really pulled out the stops with this week’s giveaways — and beginning today, they have a new giveaway designed specifically for the gear junky in all of us. For today and tomorrow, you can enter to win a SmartPak tack bundle, which includes a Harwich bridle, AP or Dressage medium diamond saddle pad, and a SmartPak classic ear bonnet. Just click on the link and fill out the form.
Achieve Equine is the parent company of FLAIR Equine Nasal Strips and VIP Equestrian, and their thin and unobtrusive VIP Equestrian saddle pad is designed for riders of all disciplines. It’s made with a proprietary polymer instead of gel, so it offers impact absorption and heat distribution without affecting saddle fit. It’s a great way to keep your horse comfortable and performing at its best. Use code LR2021 to get $10 off your order (one use per customer).
We all know our horses can never have enough quality halters, so how can you possibly pass up this 1″ Havana turnout halter from Perri’s leather? The answer, obviously, is you can’t. And now you can get it for only $49.95 (it’s regularly $69.95) when you use code LEATHER at checkout.
Tapestry Equine Products is an awesome company that offers girths, neckstraps and spurs that were designed specifically for the purpose of the horse’s comfort without giving up performance. From today through the end of the Vendor Village, you can get a free pair of Spursuaders (check out the product review here) with orders of over $300 or more when you use code LR300 at checkout.
Jump to Thursday’s deals and special events here. And if this week doesn’t fulfill your requirements for a little retail therapy, Kentucky is hosting its own Vendor Village all week during the Three-Day Event, April 21-25. You’ll be able to find more on this online shopping event on the Kentucky website here.
Happy shopping, Horse Nation. Go riding!
