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.

Sparky's Last Photos

When I made the appointment with my vet to put down my old sweet mare, I called my childhood friend, A, who is a talented photographer.  We grew up together riding at the same barn, she had known me before Sparky, and was a huge part of my horsey life for many years.  

We made an evening date of July 1 to take what I thought would be amazing final photos of my girl.  Unbeknownst to both of us, I ended up having to put Sparky down the very next morning, so it was such a perfect evening in so many ways.

I could never thank A enough for these photos.  I cherish each and every one of them.

She looked so good, it was hard to come to terms with the idea that I had to put her down.  








Being the horse savvy friend she is, A was wise enough to take photos of how Sparky stood.  She knew that while I might not be able to look at these specific photos immediately, it would help if I should ever doubt I had made the right choice.  This mare's hind end was literally giving out on her.  And I DID NOT want her to go down and never be able to get up again.

Dreamy shared the carrots, too
