Saddle Box - Ingredients for a happy horse!


I don't know anything about horses so I roped my horse-loving friend, Angela, into helping out with the review. She runs a barn in Langley, the horse capital of British Columbia, and owns several horses.

The box included a handwritten thank you note, but not product info card.

A look at their Past Boxes page indicates this review box is a collection of items from past boxes, which explains why there is no product card.

Buckeye Nutrition All Natural Peppermint Bits Horse Treats (1lb bag, $7.99)
These all-natural, no sugar added treats are made with natural peppermint oil. They don't contain additives, preservatives, or artificial flavourings.
Angela said horses would get a handful as a treat, or you could add some into their grains.

Fiebing's Mink Oil Liquid ($8.99)
Mink oil preserves, waterproofs and adds suppleness to your smooth leathers.
It's used to clean and polish saddles, bridles, halters, and other leather tack. Angela said this is a good name-brand and any horse person would be happy to receive this product.

This sponge goes with the Mink Oil to clean tack. Both items were featured in the April 2018 box.

Decker Face Brush ($7.31)
The FB-21 Face Brush is an extra soft synthetic brush designed to be gentle around the face of large animals. It features a wood block and soft synthetic bristle.
Soft bristle brushes like this are used for dusting and light brushing around the horse's face and snout.

Gilliam Peppermint Stick ($0.25)
The horse gets some peppermint treats so the human does too! Candy sticks are a total nostalgia item for me. Root Beer is my favourite!

Red Bandana (~$2.50)
Another item for the human? Angela wasn't too impressed by this. She thought it was a little cliche and too "cowboy" for her tastes. I'm sure some people will find use for the bandana though, even just for use as a dust cover or sweat rag.

Epona Lucky Groomer ($8.95)
Shaped to bring you extra luck, the Epona® Lucky Horseshoe Groomer quickly and easily removes dried sweat, caked mud and loose hair from your horse’s coat. Four serrated edges are the key to the success of this unique horse grooming tool. They make it easy to erase saddle pad marks on damp coats, too! Sits comfortably in your hand.
Angela was very interested in this grooming brush. She said it looks like it would work well at brushing off dirt and hair.

Here is the backside of the brush.

Wyoming  Cowgirl Soap Co Rosemary & Lemongrass Guest Soap ($2.50)
This little guest soap smells lovely! Another fabulous item for the human to wash up after a day spent mucking stalls.

The backside of the soap is hand stamped with the  company brand.

Co Flex Self Adhesive Vet Wrap (4", $1.95)
Specifically designed to provide non-slip support, CoFlex is the standard for horse owners.  The CoFlex Self Adhesive Vet Wrap Bandage will not constrict when applied correctly, and its lightweight and elastic material won't stick to skin or hair.  Water-resistant and non-irritating, this bandage is as easy to remove as it is to put on!  Simply unwrap or use scissors to cut.
Angela says they go through a lot of this wrap at the barn. It's used to wrap everything from hoof to tail.

Catchmaster Scented Fly Ribbon (4 pack, $2.25)
Specially formulated and lightly scented, these bug and fly catchers are for household and farm use. Simply unroll and hang to control flying insects. The Catchmaster® adhesive attracts flying insects to the ribbon where they are caught. Thumbtack is included for hanging.
Angela says fly strips are always good to have around. She hangs them in stalls to give the horses some reprieve from the flies and other bugs.

This Saddle Box collection included 10 items, valued around $43 US. Angela thought this was a "pretty good box". The horse-related items are all high quality, useful items. She said she would be able to put all of it to use in her barn. Angela wasn't totally enamoured with the human items, but I didn't mind them. Overall, Angela gives Saddle Box two thumbs up!
