As we head into November, we approach our first anniversary as a brick and mortar! While we have been an online store for many years, this was certainly a new, exciting venture for us!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers, near and far, for your support of our small business. We are growing, and it is thanks to you!

This year, we’ve tried some new things!

  • We welcomed a wonderful group of Brand Ambassadors who have become the face of our brand. These individuals have a sparkling enthusiasm for everything equestrian and are committed to representing our company and culture.
  • We started a free, in-store educational seminar series, and welcomed many top equine professionals to share their knowledge and experience with our clients. Topics included Lameness Exam and Protocols, presented by Merck Animal Health and Harmony Equine Veterinary Services; Equine Law, presented by Williams & Hannon, PLLC; and Proper Blanketing, presented by WeatherBeeta. (If you missed any of these seminars, we have recaps in our previous blog posts). We look forward to bringing more great topics and speakers to the store in 2017.
  • We’ve extended our support to local IHSA, IEA and non-profit equestrian groups through our Sponsorship and Fundraising Program. When a team or organization signs up for sponsorship with The Carousel Horse, we donate 5% back to the team in sponsorship money when any member or affiliate shops with The Carousel Horse. Teams and groups can join at any time!
  • We hosted a number of in-store shopping events! From our Valentine’s Lonely Hearts Sale to our Summer Tent Sale, and a NUMBER of events in-between, our customers shopped til they dropped and made these events a huge success! We also welcomed a number of brand reps, who hosted Trunk Shows and shared their great products!

We have brought on new brands and vendors, meeting the requests and growing needs of our customers. We would like to also take this opportunity to thank many of our reps, for being so responsive and helpful! Remember, if you don’t see a specific product in-store or on the website, but we carry the brand, we can likely get it for you!

As we look ahead to 2017, we hope to bring you more great shopping and equestrian experiences. Because, like you, we are riders, owners and horse lovers and understand the need for quality products at affordable prices.

Join us November 10-12, at the store for our Customer Appreciation/Anniversary Celebration Event!
