Posted on June 12, 2018 by Customer Service | 0 comments

Summer is here, and pony camps are starting! Is your horse-crazy child prepared for everything this fun week might bring? 

Horse camp is so much more than riding! They may be taking part in horse care activities including bathing, feeding and stall cleaning. It is important that they are dressed appropriately and safely for their daily activities. Use our horse camp checklist to make sure your child is geared up and ready to go!

Nicki Thoma - Accounting

Favorite stocking stuffers:

EquiFUSE Gleam - Who doesn't love a shiny mane and tail? Your horse would really appreciate it! All of the EquiFUSE products make wonderful stocking stuffers!

 

 

 

Horze Happy Face Brush This brush is perfect for sensitive areas of your horse’s face, ears, and neck.  Attractive print makes a statement in any grooming tote. Part of the Happy Horze collection.

 

 

Uncle Jimmy’s Big Licky - A delicious horse treat created to give your horse the same fun, entertaining value as Uncle Jimmy’s Hangin’ Balls, but with less mess and stickiness.

 

 

Favorite gifts to give:

Noble Outfitters Wine Down Corkscrew Noble Outfitters has put a new twist on the old hoof pick - a corkscrew! A great gift for your favorite horse person and fellow wine-o!

 

 

 

Noble Outfitters On the Bit Bracelet - An adjustable bracelet highlighting a beautifully crafted snaffle bit on the front. The padding detail comes in four different combinations to wear for any occasion - from street to stable!

 

 

 

Ariat Ring Backpack - This bag is the jack-of-all-trades! Helmet sling, crop holder, laptop/tablet sleeve, cell phone access and charger pockets, insulated bottle pocket, hot/cold pack, spur ring, organizer pocket panels and wet/dirty clothes pocket! Any horse person will LOVE this!

 

Favorites for YOUR wishlist:

HKM Roma Loop Scarf - The PERFECT fashion scarf, pairs with just about any outfit! Super soft and comfy!

 

 

Ariat Arrow Graphic Tee - I LOVE this tee! And you will too. A great, trendy jersey tee to wear just about anywhere!

 

 

 

Beth Bolin - Merchandising

Favorites for YOUR wishlist:


OneK Helmets - I am a huge fan of the ONE K helmets and Carousel has a great selection to choose from.  The helmets are lightweight, have a low profile that looks great on everyone and a style for every discipline of riding.  Whatever your style, be it bling or a little more reserved ONE K has the perfect option for every rider

 

Tredstep Boots - I have difficulty finding a tall boot that fits properly...until I tried Tredstep. The boots fit perfectly, broke in beautifully after only a few days and have held up through lots of time in the saddle.  A nicely priced boot with a great fit!

 

 

Holly Smail - Online Product Manager

Favorite stocking stuffers:

German Horse Muffins - Don't forget about your favorite pony or horse during the holidays!  The sweet, chewy muffins are a mix of sweet feed and molasses with added nutrients.  These are our best selling treat, and they are all natural and made in the USA.  

 

 

Favorites for YOUR wishlist:

Ovation Alistair Boot - These boots are stylish and useful for everything from the barn to shopping. The lace up the sides is great for people who need a wider calf size as they will open up to give an inch or two more space. The mix of black and brown leather is perfect for matching all colors. As a bonus, they are fully waterproof!

 

Joules Warmheart Quilted Feather Down Jacket - I love the deep, vibrant teal color with the pop of gold zippers and buttons on this coat. The photos just don't do it justice. It is lightweight enough for a nice fall day, but the down/feather fill will keep you warm for a colder winter day!

 

 

Ariat REAL Riding Jeans – Featuring the Skinny Whipstich - Skinny jeans are wonderful for winter when you are wearing boots to stomp through the snow. No more having to fold and shove your bootcut jeans into your boots! With Ariat being a riding and a fashion company, these jeans are perfect for riding or for wearing out to dinner. They fit like designer jeans, and you can't beat the price for nice denim. Plus, they have that perfect amount of stretch without stretching out!

Renee Stearns - Customer Service

Favorite stocking stuffers:

Gift Horse Candles - The "barn" themed scented candles remind every equestrian of their favorite places; from the trails, to the fields, to the hay loft.



 

Favorite gifts to give:

Custom Engraving - An engraved Perri's Leather bracelet with yours or your horse's name on it because it's personal and can be worn with just about any outfit. (in store only). Other engraving options are available online.

Favorites for YOUR wishlist:


Paul & Lydia Wallet - I like to replace my wallet every few years, this one is so cute and has so many slots for credit cards, gift cards, and rewards cards. I love the design and feel of the outer material of the wallet. Paul and Lydia makes items that coordinate, so be sure to check out their other items too!

 

Kim Sasse - Owner

Favorite stocking stuffers:

Willie Bakery’s line of Winter / Seasonal Treats - New seasonal treats just in from Willie Bakery, such as Frosty Biscotti, SnowCream Muffins, and Horseshoe Cookies to fill the stockings at the barn!

 

 

Favorite gifts to give:

Old World Christmas Ornaments –  They are lovely, glittering pieces of art to hang on your tree and a treasured keepsake for years to come.

 

 

 

Ogilvy Baby Pad - Its unique design means it stays where it needs to without rubbing, is protected with stain resistance and is anti-bacterial / anti fungal on the inside.  Plus, dries quickly after use and wicks moisture away from your horse’s back..  Super fun to play with all the color combinations available, but Carousel has tons of in-stock options ready to ship immediately.

Favorites for YOUR wishlist:

Noble Outfitters Element Cowl – The perfect shirt for all occasions; casual Fridays at work with a pair of jeans and boots, or with your favorite tights for a comfy Sunday at home.

 

 

 

Kerrits Horseplay Vest - Not just your basic black vest, this vest is quilted with a chevron and horse stitching to give it lovely detail.  It’s slim, flattering fit won’t add bulk, just warmth and style.  Perfect for stable to street!
