Saddle Box review

I was contacted last week by Saddle Box's owner, Phil, who asked if I would review the product on my blog.  I am happy to do so!  All my opinions are my own and I am in no way sponsored by or affiliated with Saddle Box.   
Saddle Box is a monthly subscription box full of equine related goodies for both rider and horse!  It can contain items such as treats, grooming tools, books, and small tack.  It seems there are a lot of these surprise monthly subscription boxes in a variety of styles these days, and it was only a matter of time until one was made especially for horse folks!

The first box has a 15% off coupon, so it costs $29.71 the first month and $34.95 each month thereafter which includes shipping.  They do ship to Canada for an extra $10 shipping. You can buy a Saddle Box for yourself or give it as a gift.  Once you sign up, it will automatically renew (and charge your credit card) every month unless you indicate for no box that month. There are no returns unless you receive a…

Fun farm things

Last weekend, my husband and I bought this beautiful, new piece of equipment...



That's a dump trailer to haul sawdust, manure, etc. in case you were wondering haha.  My husband has wanted one of these FOREVER and, I swear to god, bringing it home was like Christmas to him.

With a logo, it must be official

I have always wanted a cute logo for my farm, but it always seemed kind of silly.  I am an adult amateur and I don't need to "brand" my farm or any type of business.  But geez, with my very own farm, I finally figured I might as well do what I want and create a logo. Honestly, it was my husband who convinced me to do it, as he came home last fall with the name idea of Clover Ledge and had drawn his own logo.  It was a silly spoof of a logo, but we figured we needed one eventually.

I asked a horsey friend, Donna, to design it for us.  She is a graphic designer and I knew she would do a great job.  I basically told her I wanted to incorporate horses and oxen and stick with the green color.  I think her design is perfect.  It took a few tweaks, and she was very patient with me, and I just love it!

We did the horse in a dressage frame, even though I would identify myself as an eventer. Dressage is the basis of all training in my eyes, so dressage it was.  And I love her idea t…
