Fluffy Kentucky halter

Ola ola,

Fluffy products seem to be everywhere at the moment. I feel like you can find every single product under the moon with fur. Everything from saddle pads, to boots to halters.

Kentucky has now come up with a smart solution for the last one. If you have an old halter in the closet that you want to make a bit prettier, you can buy one of their halter furs that they’ve got for sale.

You can buy them HERE in Black or white for 99 euro.

Kentucky Love

Ola ola,

The equestrian tack brand Kentucky wasn’t really known for bringing out fashion forward and beautiful tack products, but times have changed.

Their new lines of stable rugs, stable accessories and other tack products are so beautifully created that I wish I had them all in my closet. but beautiful unfortunately comes with a price. Their stable rugs starts at 180 euro and lets just say the rest isn’t that cheap either. If you want to check out the rest of the line, you can check it out over on Horze.

This will never happen again

Ola Ola,

Yesterday boyfriend came with me to the stable and the thing I never thought would happen, happened!

If you had to put horse owners into categories, I would be placed in the category of : “Horse owner who buys the horse too much stuff” Grumpy has more jackets and boots than myself. Normally when the doorbell rings you can hear my boyfriend sigh “have you bought horse stuff again?”  , which normally gets the answer “it’s my money!”. I will of course never admit that he is right, Grumpy gets way to much stuff.

Though yesterday, boyfriend held up the field halter of Grumpy and expressed “this thing needs to be thrown in the trash!”. Believe me, this is words i’ll probably never hear again. But he was right, that halter has seen its better days.

As the good girlfriend I am, I went straight on the internet to see if I could find a new one. I had to buy new Superflex powder for Grumpy as well, so I tried to find a site that I could get 20% off to make it a tad bit cheaper. Luckily Dochorse that discount code for this weekend, so I decided to buy halter from there as well. Below you can see the selected one : Equ-all Nylon Halter. Apparently it’s a bit fancy, with an extra opening at the nose.  I don’t particularly need this, but its great for younger horses or when you are grooming.

At least I’ve got an answer this time when the package will be delivered… hoho

PS of Sweden halters 

Ola,

I’ve written about the product of PS of Sweden before, but then about the saddle pads. Yesterday I came across their leather halters which are stunning. I like that they try to think new and comfort for the horse. All of them are made in a way that releases pressure around the ears. 


I would love to own the first one, but at 148 euro it’s a bit expensive, the two last ones are around 100 euro. You can buy them on the site of Ps of Sweden

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
