International Women’s Day

Posted on March 08, 2019 by Customer Service | 0 comments

In the equestrian industry, women break stereotypes.  

We partake in one of the very few sports where men and women compete alongside one another. Where women are dominant – over 90% of the industry is female – riders, owners, trainers, breeders, business owners and more.

Women are kicking ass.

So, on International Women’s Day, we wanted to take a moment to toot our own horn, and profile one badass business owner, boss, momma and the fearless leader here at The Carousel Horse: Kim Sasse

An equestrian since childhood, Kim grew up riding and horse showing, and into adulthood, working alongside her sister to manage a boarding facility in Butler, PA. After marriage and kids, Kim knew she needed to take a step back from the hands-on environment of farm management, but certainly wanted to keep rooted in the equestrian industry.

Putting to use her Business Management degree, Kim started a small, online retail business in 2008, selling equestrian apparel and tack via her website and eBay, sending out shipments from her basement with the help of a few part-time employees. When she began her journey, Kim was looking to give riders in Western Pennsylvania and across the country an option to purchase quality equestrian products at affordable prices.

Her business grew immensely over the years and she expanded rider apparel and horse wear options for various disciplines, bringing on new brands and vendors.

The Carousel Horse outgrew the confinements of her basement, and in the Fall of 2015, Kim took a leap and opened the store’s brick and mortar location in Cabot, PA, just minutes outside of historic Saxonburg, which was quite the labor of love! The space was crafted with a boutique feel in mind, and driven by a love of all things equestrian. Around every corner there is something that catches your eye.

With the store now open six days a week and a staff of nine full and part-time employees, Kim finds herself BUSY balancing the craziness of owning a business with the joys of being an active boy mom.

And despite big-name competitors, The Carousel Horse continues to GROW. The solid foundation Kim built this company on 11 years ago has given it strength to expand and evolve in new directions, and we are all excited to see where it will go!

So on this day, and EVERY DAY, we give big props to all those ladies out there (like Kim) who have a dream and chase it, wear multiple hats, take on new challenges, and work so hard to better themselves and those around them.

You. Are. Badass.

An Equestrian Christmas - 2018 Holiday Gift Guide

Posted on November 21, 2018 by Customer Service | 0 comments

The website and store are filled with amazing gifts to give and add to your personal wish list! From apparel to jewelry, saddles to homewares, we have the perfect little something for every equestrian on your list!
Here are this year's suggestions to give and to get from our knowledgeable staff!
Kim Sasse, Owner:
A gift to give: fox mug. If you’re like me you can’t going without that first cup of coffee and this little guy makes me smile every time I see him. A perfect way to start your morning!
A gift to get: The Ariat Buffalo Plaid Vest because it’s cozy and casual, looks great with jeans and boots.
Emily May, E-Commerce Operations Manager
A gift to give: Mountain Horse Ladies Angie Boot Sock in Grey Melange and the Horseware Oversized Blanket Scarf because they’re around the $50 price range sweet spot for gifting, blanket scarves and boot socks are really popular right now, and these are staple wardrobe items that any girl can use and love at any age! 
A gift to get: The Hot to Trot Favorit Oats Tilly Crossbody Bag for many of the same reasons as my “gift to give”! It’s a staple item that any girl can use and love, who doesn’t love a good vintage grain sack look (?!), and if you aren’t feeling “horsey”, you can totally flip it and get a cute neutral plain leather look! The size of the bag and the design of the pocket spaces inside are other aspects I love about this little purse!
Renee Stearns, Sales Associate
Gift to give: Ogilvy baby pad, we all go through a lot of saddle pads. A new pad adds color to any season. Also, the price of an Ogilvy is affordable for almost any occasion.
Gift to get: Kerrits Sit Tight Windpro breech, because the cold is way less fun after Christmas, but these breeches can help! When you're sick of the cold, but it's time to ride!
Rebecca Weaver, Customer Service Manager:
A gift to give: The Equestrian Prep line has matching shirts and hats!! I think this is such an awesome ( and affordable) gift to give to any horsey friend. Everyone loves ball caps and you can never have too many long sleeve t-shirts! 
A gift to get: Horseware Collete Cowl Neck Sweatshirt. Because I am obsessed with this sweatshirt. It can be dressed up or down and is perfect for the chilly fall or winter days. It’s long enough that it covers your butt and the cowl neck isn’t obnoxiously big.
Laura Mefford, Sales Associate
Gift to give: The Ariat Cruisers are so comfortable and affordable. They also come in many styles to match any outfit. They are perfect for a night out as well as the long horse show days!
Gift to get: I would love the Noble Outfitters Ringside Pack for horse shows. It’s perfect for staying organized and taking the essentials to the ring. Aside from horse shows you can also use the bag for traveling, it’s the perfect carry-on size! The bag is stylish and convenient!
Samantha Mancu, Sales Associate
A gift to give: I would give the Ariat Alessio Heather Sweater. I have worn mine for schooling, for date night or even casual Friday’s at work. It is comfortable, affordable and perfect for these temperatures. 
A gift to get: If your horse has been extra good this year why not reward him with a Veredus Magnetik Rug! This would be perfect to relax your horse’s muscles and joints before and/or after a good ride in these cold temperatures but it light enough that it could also be used all summer long at shows and the barn. 
Kirstie Zoelle, Sales Associate
A gift to give: Ariat Women’s Ashley Vest. Love wearing a vest when I’m riding, just enough to keep warm. And the colors are super cute!
A gift to get: Ariat Women’s Ideal Down Vest. Very warm and cute to wear on any cold day! I’d love to wear it while riding but it would go great with just a pair of jeans and boots too!
And remember, if you just aren't sure what your favorite equestrian would like, gift cards never disappoint!
