Here are my top picks from today’s deals. Click on the graphic to be taken directly to the featured item or virtual shop.

Ice Horse. 

Ice Horse is offering a FREE HoofWraps Soaker with purchase.  I’ve personally used Ice Horse boots when I used to event, and they’re one of the few products out there that I truly believe work.  They don’t fall down, they stay cold, and they don’t involve unsafe procedures like wrapping ice packs around your horse’s legs that could fall down.  The HoofWraps Soaker is also an essential.  Let’s face it.  Everyone’s horse has an abscess or other issue at some point in its life and needs medication or soaking.  The Soaker makes life infinitely easier.  No buckets falling over – who can beat that?  Use code HWS at checkout for this deal.


Perri’s Leather.

Perri’s Leather is offering Crystal Grip Jump Bats in all colors reduced to $20 (regularly $26.50).  I love a little bit of bling, so I can’t resist this deal.  It’s tasteful but still fun, and you could even it in the show ring.  I also love how these bats aren’t a billion feet long, as I have trouble handling really long crops, and the handles aren’t super thick.  I have small hands, so it’s hard for me to find bats that work well.  Reins, bat, too much to hold.  I am adding to cart… Use code CROP at checkout for this deal.




SmartPak is offering a $500 gift card up for grabs!  The possibilities are endless: Stock up on tack, get those Piper breeches in the cool color that you always wanted aside from beige but were too afraid to buy before, save the $500 for your horse’s supplements… I’ve been a SmartPak customer almost since SmartPaks were first invented, and absolutely love the concept.  The Paks themselves are made of recycled materials, so it’s awesome that SmartPak is doing its part to help the environment.  My mare is also an enormous fan of SmartCookies in Banana Bread, so I buy them in bulk.  Click here to enter to win the gift card – good luck!


World Equestrian Brands.

World Equestrian Brands has opened an exclusive virtual store for our Nation Media readers!  This week, it’s offering 30% off some amazing brands like Mattes, Amerigo, Vespucci, and Equilibrium.  I’m a huge fan of Mattes half pads myself – and they wear like iron.  Head on over to this special store created just for you to fill your basket!  Click here to go to the virtual special store.






Voltaire makes beautiful tack – absolutely gorgeous.  Buttery soft leather, saddles that are super balanced, and other equipment that lasts forever and looks more beautiful with age.  Whenever I’ve ridden in a Voltaire saddle, the horses seem to lift their backs and really engage themselves thanks to the saddles’ design.  Voltaire is offering free stirrup leathers and girth with the purchase of any saddle for our readers.  It’s often when you get a new saddle that you forget about the fittings!  Or, you realize that your old girth and stirrup leathers don’t match – uh oh.  Voltaire is here to help!  Click here to contact Voltaire and get this deal.


What will you add to your cart?  I need to add everything… #buyallthethings

Go Jumping – and Shopping!
