After what feels like the year that would never end, it is finally time to ring in 2021. Let’s put our best foot forward and try to make this the best year for you and your horse.
#1 More Time Riding
It is hard to balance life’s responsibilities and still make time to get to the barn everyday to ride. This year strive to add one extra ride a week to your schedule. It will make you and your horse happier and healthier. But let’s do our extra rides in style!
Walsh Front Sport Boots provides style and protection for your extra weekly ride. These boots are suitable for everyday use but elegant enough for competitions too.

Ecogold CoolFit Hunter Pad provides a classic style while keeping your horse from sweating anytime of year. This pad allows air to circulate through the foam to help keep you from having to wait for your horse to dry this winter.
#2 More Time With Your Horse
We ride because we love horses, so this year focus on the time spent with your horse. Whether it is grooming, hand grazing, or hands on therapies, it is all valuable time that will help you de-stress in the new year (which we could all use).

Vetrolin is the perfect after workout product to help your horse feel better while you spend time with them. Take a bucket of warm water and mix in the Vetrolin to loosen your horse’s muscles and provide the wind down time you need before going home.
#3 A Healthier Horse
In addition to exercise, diet is an important part of your horse’s health. Take an inventory of your horse’s behavior and health and think what you’d like to improve this year. Could their coat be shinier? Can they be irritable when you brush them? Or are they just getting a little older? Supplements can be a huge help in improving your horse’s health in the new year.
DAC Oil is an easy and delicious addition to your horse’s feed. The blend of flaxseed oil, vegetable oil and fish oil help horse’s gain weight in these winter months while improving their coat and skin.

Ulcers affect an estimated 60% of show horses, so help them feel more comfortable in the new year. On top of Gastro 8, we have a variety of ulcer and digestion supplements to meet every horse’s needs. Whether a feed-through or paste is best for them, you’ll find it HERE!

#4 An Organized Barn
During the cold winter months, take the opportunity to spend time in the barn and clean out your tack room! You can sell or donate the items in your tack room that you no longer use. That extra pocket money will come in handy for the new products you want for your horse and after such a tough year, there are definitely people that would greatly appreciate your gently used items at a lower price!

Another amazing feature is the front mesh pockets. They make it easy to see what’s in each pocket and allow your boots to dry completely without getting that wet boot odor.
