Try it. Buy it. Love it.
This week we are looking at a variety of brands & products for horse and rider. Some you may have heard of, some you may not, and some you may recognize from previous features we’ve shared in issues and our blog.
These are brands we here at The Eloquent Equine find awesome, inspiring, innovative, curious, or all of the above. All these companies are passionate about their products, and the horses and riders that serve as their primary consumers, so we wanted to share the love by spreading the word on some of their great items.
So check them out, visit their site or social media to learn more, and perhaps you’ll find something to try, to buy, to love (or all of the above!).
For the horse
All natural horse treats for the horse you love. Spoil your equine partner with these crunchy homemade dry snacks. They come in five distinct flavours, and are even safe for horses with certain dietary restrictions and other health conditions. They are made with ingredients you can pronounce, and can actually recognize, and because they are dry, they are built to last (plus no post treat sticky fingers either!).
This is another great all natural product you can use to help spoil your horse, and keep him nice and shiny while you’re at it. Free of chemicals and all that other unpleasant stuff you generally find in shampoo products, the EcoLicious Equestrian product line will make your horse shine, without harming his or her health. They carry a wide range of horse care products, from mane & tail care, summer care, hoof care, and bathing & coat care. They’ve got your horse covered, from head to hoof. Plus it’s packaged in recycled bottles, so its eco-friendly inside and out!
Comfort, style, and protection, all rolled into one, who could ask for more? These quality equestrian pads take the traditional concept to a whole new level by blending top of the line materials with innovative and beautiful design. These products are tried and tested by riders, for riders, so they know your horse’s needs. Machine washable and stain resistant, Ogilvy’s range of pads distribute pressure evenly, reducing saddle tension and reducing rubbing. A horse that is comfortable is a horse that can perform to its highest level, and Ogilvy’s innovative range of products not only help make your horse more comfortable, but are tailored to each discipline making for the perfect fit and style.
