I am told February is a short month but I don’t believe it – February has felt like the longest month EVER! I don’t know what it is…perhaps its the weather or the final slog to get through the challenging “Winter with horses” lifestyle but to me March sounds much more appealing and positive so roll on next week. In the meantime I think it’s time for a little pay day treat. With lots of new products arriving at The Horse Diva HQ there is plenty to choose from. Here are a few of my personal favourites…
Equetech Empire Ladies Breeches in Petrol. I love the striking colour of these ladies breeches and the paisley pattern on the seat is really pretty whilst being rather handy giving you a slightly grippy seat for those “Spring” moments! They are super comfy with a lovely high waist and soft stretchy material.
My colleague described the Ladies Toggi Fleece Socks as “the best fluffy socks out there” today and I couldn’t agree more. Warm and comforting – these prevent you having freezing toes. These socks are also nice to wear at home at the end of a long day when you need to put your feet up.
I love buying new products for my horse (find me a horse owner who doesn’t!) and as we head towards the end of another winter its a good time to give your equestrian supplies a bit of a revamp. The HyIMPACT range of brushing boots and over reach boots are great for day to day use and brighten up your equestrian wear even on those dull grey days.
I easily get bored of wearing the same equestrian clothing to the yard but an easy way to add a bit of vibrancy without too much expense is to change your riding hat silk depending on your mood. I have been wearing a navy spot one over the winter but I think it’s time for a change. One that will look great with my brown riding boots and riding gloves is the Leopard Design Riding Hat Cover.
My final favourite is The Horse Boy book. I have just started reading it and I am really looking forward to continuing. This is a true story of a father’s journey to heal his son’s autism through his relationship with horses. It’s great to unwind with a good book after a long day at the yard or at work.
Well I can’t believe June has passed me by so quickly! Looking back it’s been a month of good progress with the giant pony and hooves have even left the ground with a return to jumping, much to Skip’s delight (and mine actually!!). With two weddings ahead seeing some close friends get married plus another show planned for me and Skippy I think July is going to be over before I know it. However before we rush ahead with future plans it’s time to look back at the best selling horsey gifts during June at The Horse Diva.
Gloves have been selling really well this month, with the most popular design from Carrots UK being the velvet sparkly women’s horse riding gloves. New to the market and also due to the hot weather, the HY5 lightweight women’s horse riding gloves have also been popular and are at great buy at just £12.00. For children we have nearly sold out of the Ravensdale children’s horse riding gloves but don’t worry there are more on their way so just drop us an email if you would like to be notified when they are back in stock!
For the yard, the Bentley Horse Grooming Kit in Pink has sold well. It’s a great gift and also super useful for summer shows due to the cute box it comes in! For something a little different, the Hooftorch has been really popular with great feedback – an innovative gift under £10.00 for the horse owner who has everything.
In Hertfordshire, we were thrilled to see the sun shining so much this month and this has inspired the purchase of women’s polo shirts and children’s pony t shirts! Here are a couple of your favourites…
Finally, our range of horsey bags have been really popular this month. Must be all that shopping and pampering we are enjoying! There is something for every style and budget, including horsey shopper bags as well as the new and instantly popular Milly Green range including cosmetic and wash bags.
