Harry’s Horse Magnetic boots

Ola Ola,

Finally and then I mean finally is the equestrian world starting to innovate more and more. Out with the old stuffy thoughts and in with the new ones. Now people just need to adjust their brains to all these new products and we are good to go!

Not so long ago Harry’s Horse launched a new boots with magnets. This is a protective tendon boots which is great for horses who often gets stable feet, for transporting and so forth. The magnets in the boot increases blood flow which again can heal injuries faster. Whether this is scientifically proved, I’m not sure, but I’m just happy to see brands trying out new stuff.

You can buy them at Epplejeck for 79.90€ for a pair.

Mud Fever Woof wear boots

Good morning!

Netherlands has luckily been dry the past few weeks(knock on wood), but boy this winter has been muddy.

What does muddy mean? Most of the time that your horse gets mud fever. The good old jolly mud fever. Now Woof Wear has created a mud fever boot that protects your horses legs from mud when going outside. When Grumpy was on his worst with the mud fever, he couldn’t go outside, so if he still had it I would use these. Or at least try, he can’t even use transport boots. Haha

They cost around 60 euro for a pair and can be bought at your usual equine shop. Here in the Netherlands they will be available at HorseFitShop in March.

Hope you’ll have a Good Friday!

What to buy on sale

January is known for being the huge sales month in many countries. In the Netherlands several of the largest equestrian sites have their winter sales on at the moment. 

I personally love sales(why wouldn’t you want to buy something for less money. Haha), but I do know there are people that find them to messy or don’t want to buy “outdated” product. However there are certain things that are really smart to buy on the big sales: 

Saddle pads 

I can’t remember the last time I bought a saddle pad at full price. I personally prefer the euro star pads, but at 70 euro I find them too expensive. So I buy a couple of them when the sales is on instead. Like this one for example: 


Kingsland victor saddle pad. Normally 80,- now 40,- at Divoza

Show shirts

I don’t why, but seems that someone decided that showshirts should be redicolous expensive eventough their full of polyester(my favorite fabric -not). Show shirts change little season by season, so you can save quite a lot on buying them at the large sales in winter and summer. For example the ones at Kingsland haven’t changed all year. So why not buy them a bit cheaper?


Kingsland classic show shirt. Normally 45,- now 35,- at De Kroo.

Rugs 

Winter rugs/ turnout rugs are definitely one of the most expensive things we can buy for our horses. Generally the rugs don’t change much from year to year. So if you know that you need a new one next year it can be smart to buy them on the winter sales instead of at the beginning of autumn. At the moment you can even get Bucas rugs up to 30% off which doesn’t happen a lot. 


Bucas 300 gram smartex winter turnout rug – normally 255,- now 178, euro- at Dochorses

Halters 

You always need halters and saving some dollars here and there on them is never bad. Their certainly not expensive, but buying them at 50% off feels better then buying them at full price no?


Schockemöhl Tennessee. Normally 17,95, now 8,98,- at Epplejeck

Boots 

You need boots all year around, but generally they don’t go on sale as much the rest of the year as they do now. So why not buy some at 30-50% as a delayed Christmas gift for yourself? 


Petrie Melbourne – normally 299,- now 199,- at Ooteman

Here you got a list of the sales going on at the moment or coming up: 
Divoza – up to 50% off 

Ooteman – special sale starts 15 January, for now 30% off

Dochorses – up to 30% off on rugs from Rambo, Amigo, Bucas 

Schockemöhl – 50% off certain items 

Epplejeck – winter sale with up to 50% starts Sunday 8 January

Same Same, but different – Jodhpurs

same-same
So its time for another round of Same Same, but different. This time I’ve found two pairs of jodhpurs who are basically identical to each other, except for the price and brand of course.

The Harry’s horse smart airsystem can be bought HERE.

 
The Ariat heritage lace paddock 4lr can be bought HERE.
Both jodhpurs come in cow leather, shock absorbing, airy and waterproof(as far as leather boots are waterproof that is).  But as you can see the price is pretty different at 90,- versus 160,- euro. In this round I actually think the version from Harry’s Horses win, I think it looks just a tad bit sleeker in a way. Which would you choose?

Steal of the week

I wish I would be horse riding right now, but instead I’m laying on the sofa like a half dead whale. Unfortunately the cold plague that is ruling the Netherlands at the moment found its next victim. 
But hey, the good thing about colds is that they generally go away and hopefully I’m then done for the year(crossing fingers and toes.haha) 
Anyway, enough about the cold and on to something more fun. In the Divoza package I received yesterday there were also a box with a pair of jodhpurs in it. I’ve been drooling over the ones from Petrie for a while, but never found my size so when I saw these for that price I decided to get them again. My last pair is the exact same model and they are really nice. They are made of real leather and the quality is good. For 37 euros one can’t really complain. You only have to go up one size as they run small. 

You can buy them at Divoza for 37.40,-. And if you’re like me and wear this type of boot as a fashion item, then just cut of the two “tags” and they can be worn with jeans and so forth as well. Saves quite a lot of money as the same model in real leather will cost you over 100 euro,-.
