Everyone loves a little mystery in their life right? We recently had the opportunity for the little equestrian to review the diverse equestrian subscription box for adult and little equestrians, SaddleBox!
It was super fun to have that little bit of mystery, and the SaddleBox doesn’t make you wait very long. The box arrived VERY quickly from the time it was ordered to the time it was delivered. We are in Ohio, along with SaddleBox headquarters, so our shipping was probably quicker than most. SaddleBox does ensure their team personally picks and packs your box the same day no matter where you are located in the US for free! (They also ship to Canada and the UK.)
The little equestrian and I were super impressed with the contents of our box. Every item was usable and practical except for one item! The Equine Spot On treatment for flies included in the box we were not able to utilize. (We gave this item to a friend, as our boys are older and can have skin sensitivities.) Included in the box was a hoof pick, stickers, a few educational anatomy cards, a bucket brush, a lead rope, vet wrap, and a TON of different treats for our equine friends (and once or twice human friends) to try!
The variety of treats in our specific box was VERY fun and quite impressive! The Heavenly Horse Banana chips were a favorite for Cora, who normally does not enjoy fresh banana! Although these are not intended for humans I did try one myself and they were delicious.. The Sweet Saddles Wild Cherry Hard candy was also a barn favorite, we shared these with all three of our horse on our review panel and they were VERY fond of these! Toby who can sometimes be picky about his food and treats was digging in pockets to get more! We also thought the Sophie’s Stable Spoilers treat was fun for adults and kids to feed, we tried hand feeding this, and it was a little difficult since it is a loose treat. We sprinkled this on feed rations and it was MUCH easier!
Honestly I was worried that the box would not have useful products. Some online subscription boxes I have used in the past give a survey or a “quiz” regarding what product you would prefer, discipline, age, etc. SaddleBox did an AMAZING job providing a broad range of products that ANYONE can use for ANY discipline in the equestrian world. The only thing that the little equestrian and I would change is our specific box did not have big “rider” goodies like socks, trinkets, or personal human items other than the stickers. You can view past boxes on the SaddleBox website and previous boxes have had REALLY cool items for humans!
The little equestrian enjoyed the sticker on the lid of the box, which features individual horses that have received donations from the SaddleBox subscriptions. All sales support rescue organizations across the US.
The savings from ordering this box vs. individual purchases is EXPONENTIAL. I added up all of the items if purchased individually, and it was at least a 30-40% savings compared to the price of the subscription. Another REALLY cool perk I did not even realize until surfing their SaddleBox website is every month they sneak a “Golden Ticket: into a random SaddleBox! If you find one in your box, you will win a FREE custom made saddle.
SaddleBox currently has a special deal on your first box ordered with them! Use code SPRINGTIME to get 50% off your first box! (This makes a great gift, items for gift bags, prize baskets, etc.). You can cancel anytime, and there is a 100% guarantee on the satisfaction of the products offered in the box.
