Favorite Half Pads

Favorite Half Pads

1. EquiFit T-Foam Non-Slip Contour Pad – equifit.net
2. Ultra ThinLine Contour Pad – thinlineglobal.com
3. Jump Original Ogilvy Memory Foam HalfPad – ogilvyequestrian.com

The EquiFit theraputic pad uses the T-Foam memory foam that is always so comfortable for horses. This pad maximizes support, disperses pressure points, absorbs shock, and helps prevent back soreness. I have always loved the EquiFit brand and though I have never used this pad, I have always wanted to try it.

The ThinLine pad has always been a favorite for many. It is great for horses that don’t need a lot of padding underneath the saddle. It flexes and moves with your horse, has great shock absorption, and offers closer contact between horse and rider

The Ogilvy pad is somewhat similar to the EquiFit one although there are a few different features. This pad uses anti-slip, moisture-wicking materials. It has anti-microbial and anti-fungal properties. It also uses a memory foam that gives great shock absorption. This is another product that I have been dying to try on my horse.

Green – interactive pet feeder

Boring meal time for pooch or kitty? No more plain bowl of food that is empty in less than 5 seconds with the Green interactive feeder! We actually don’t have the gulp-eaters at home, quite the opposite, our nuggets could care less about their food. That is why I think this feeder would be great: they would have to work for their food and it would be fun and entertaining -at least for me to watch them.
I know for sure Boogie the poodle would give me an are-you-kidding-me look, and Daisy the jack russell would say yay!! play time! I can’t wait to get one for them.

The Hunter Boot

Comfortable, stylish and sturdy, Hunter boots are worn by just about everyone, from royalty to soldiers, and from city rainstorms to muddy mountainsides. They are of course always present and super reliable at the barn and horse shows.
Legendary for their durability, they are extremely well made and not “disposable” like most other kinds of rubber rain boots. They have been around for a very long time and have been a symbol of British country life. The company was formerly named the North British Rubber Company and was started by American entrepreneur Mr. Henry Lee Norris in 1856. They were used by the British Army to protect soldiers in flooded trenches in World War I and II. In 1956 the famous Green Wellington and the bestseller Royal Hunter were introduced – without a doubt, wellies are my all time favorites.

Yas-Ming ceramics

Sweet collaboration between two talented girls bring to life these whimsical ceramic creations in their Kent studio in Britain. All YAS-MING products are completely designed and handmade by Ming Wai Sun and Yasmin Dilekkaya. Their process involves slip casting, press moulding and hand building techniques. Such clever use of names for each collection – Rawr, Moo, Oink and Squeak – just makes me want one of each even more.

Fav Five: Boots

These are some of my favorite horse boots, for schooling and the show ring.

Favorite Five Horse Boots

1. CWD Buckle Tendon Boots – cwdsellier.com
2. Doda Hind Horse Boots – doversaddlery.com
3. Eskadron Flexisoft Air Easy Boots – doversaddlery.com
4. EquiFit T-Boot Hind Xcel Horse Boots – doversaddlery.com
5. Veredus Nero Carbon Gel Open Front Horse Boots – doversaddlery.com

The CWD leather boots are great for the show ring. I’ve tried so many different brands of leather boots and all are way too stiff and leave sores on my horses legs. But these CWD boots are amazing because the leather is so soft and they look great!

The Doda boots are also pretty great. The pressure points on the inside help your horse really lift their legs over the jump. I’ve used these in the jumpers and have seen many people use them in the schooling ring for hunters. But they don’t work on every horse.

Eskadron boots are very popular and great for schooling. The new ones have vents which help keep your horse cool. However the buckles don’t seem very durable. I know the velcro was a problem because it would wear out quickly, but at least velcro is easy to replace.

EquiFit is by far my favorite brand of boots. The memory foam offers the best support and comfort for your horse. I use the front and hind T-Boots for my horse in the jumpers. These hind Xcel boots are great for horses that need the extra help lifting their hind legs because you can add weights. They are a good alternative for horses that don’t respond to the pressure points on the Doda boots.

Veredus is another popular brand. I’ve never tried them but have always been curious. The gel seems to offer good support but what I really like is the extra protection from the carbon fiber shell. These would be great for schooling or showing.

Back on Track

Back on Track products are a must have. The way they work is clay particles are melted into the thread that radiates heat back to the body. This can help with increasing blood circulation, muscle relief, and injury prevention. There are products for horses, people, and dogs. I’ve used some of the horse products and I love them.

Equissage

The Niagara Equissage is the perfect way to pamper your horse. ‘Cause we all know we love to spoil our four legged friends. This massage helps improve blood circulation, improve health and performance, prevent injury, and helps in the recovery of existing injuries. I have used this product on my horse that had a really sore back and it really helped in getting rid of soreness and preventing it form coming back. I love it! It’s definitely a good investment you can make for your horse.
