I’m a big fan of ALL the ways you can totally spoil your horse. After all, with three semi-retired ones of my own, I am the first one to feel that my boys have earned every last treat! This Valentine’s Day, I decided to come up with some extra special ways to show the love. Enjoy!
Although they will never share things like hay or peppermints, one thing my horses invariably share are brushes. This one is actually made for that, with antimicrobial bristles. After all, what says love better than antimicrobial bristles?
Wellfleet Fancy Stitch Padded Halter by SmartPak
Ratty halters be gone! And with SmartPak putting the nameplate on for you (can we say no more sore thumbs?!), your horse can be stylish in no time.
Canter Silk Mane & Tail Conditioner
Pasture pet or performer, every horse deserves lovely locks. Since we discovered this particular conditioner, our brush box has never been without. Thank goodness it comes in a 1 liter bottle!
SmartPak Deluxe Fly Sheet w/ Insect Shield
Let’s be honest, what horse LIKES flies? If you manage to keep them out of your barn (kudos to you), then they still swarm around every exposed area available, horse or human, when you’re outside. This year; however, I’m breaking out the big guns and going with full coverage PLUS insect repellant.
Herm Sprenger KK Ultra Aurigan Loose Ring
If I was a horse, and I was bit shopping, this is the bit I would choose. It’s designed to provide clear communication, and won’t pinch or put pressure on the palate. It’s also made from Aurigan, which is reportedly quite tasty.
Back on Track Exercise Sheet
I really can’t get enough of Back on Track. Fortunately, they make something to cover just about any imaginable area: boots, blankets, pads, wraps and now this super handy exercise sheet. Basically, it is a quarter sheet with the benefits of their signature reflective ceramic material to soothe those all-important back muscles.
As my horses age and their riding demands, turnout schedules and diets change, I like to review their supplement needs from time to time. A quick run through the Supplement Wizard always helps bring to light areas of support I may have overlooked. Not to mention it is great fun customizing each SmartPak!
