Howdy!! Happy Friday! How’s your week been? Are you glad it’s the weekend? I sure am!!
I’m excited to have two whole days to relax, play with the horses and hopefully even make it to the lake. I have missed warm weather so much! I hate being cooped up in the house during the winter months and am thrilled to finally have longer warm days so I can stay outside a lot more.
Anyway though, I have something to share with you today! It’s actually a product I had never heard of until the owner reached out to me about doing a review. The product is called A SaddleBox. I believe it is something new but don’t hold me to that. If you want to learn more about the SaddleBox you can visit their website at https://www.saddlebox.net. On their website you’ll find pricing information, you can sign up for 10% OFF each month for life(!), see past boxes and even win a box! So head on over and check out their site.
I grabbed the photo above from the SaddleBox website – I liked it a lot better then the photo I took. 😉 I got everything you see though.

- Chamberlain’s Leather Milk
- Clint mints Horse Treats
- Decker Face Brush
- Natural Soap by Forever Summer

About Each SaddleBox Item
This horse pick appears to be made from a horse shoe and painted a metallic color. It’s heavy like a horse shoe but because of it’s thin size it is easy to hold. It’s so pretty I hate to use it….but I will!
I wish I could tell you there was something unique about these horse treats but I don’t think there is. They appear to be just like the horse treats I’ve gotten in the past, this is just a new company selling them. Regardless though, I know the horses will love them, so any box with treats in them is great in my book. 🙂
This is probably my favorite item from this box because I LOVE grooming my horses. I especially love small handle brushes since my hands are tiny. This brush fits perfect in my hands and I love the soft bristles. It is going to be perfect for brushing off all of my horses heads after I curry them.
There was a strong smell to my Saddle Box when I first opened it. I couldn’t tell if they sprayed something in the box to make it smell or if it was one of the products. Eventually I figured out it was this soap bar. It has a very stout smell to it which I’m guessing is from the ingredients. As you can see from the label it’s got some herbs in it, so I think what I’m smelling is the Rosemary. I have to admit, I’m not a fan of the way this smells at all but I’m sure that doesn’t mean it won’t work well. I do look forward to trying it next time I bath Rumor or Gracie. (I’m pretty certain the boys wouldn’t like to smell like this. LOL)
Now for the leather milk. According to the bottle this leather conditioner acts as a uv protectant too and is made from natural ingredients. Looking at it in the bottle it looks like white sunscreen lotion and even smells a little like it too. It’s not greasy or sticky like some of the leather conditioners I’ve used before. I had my reservations about this one since the saddle conditioner I tried I wasn’t a big fan of but I am looking forward to giving this one a try.
Lastly, the book and bandana were the other items that came in the box. The book has a lot of quotes in it from horse experts and enthusiasts from around the world.
Overall, I liked the Saddle Box and the items that came in it. I love the box concept and how you get to try out different products that you might wouldn’t buy in the store or even see. If I wasn’t such a tight wad (or going through a big life change..stay tuned in the coming weeks to hear more about this.) I would definitely subscribe to this! Like I said above though, now is your chance to get a Saddle box yourself either but using their 10% OFF code or Winning a box. All you have to do is head over to their website to get more details! 🙂
So Tell Me..
Do you subscribe to any horse boxes? If so, which one?
**I was asked by the company to review their product and in exchange for my review I was given this product at no cost. However, I have always and will always tell it like it is, so if I don’t like something I will be 100% honest about it.**

So fun! The girls will be happy to be smelling good. I love rosemary and am very curious about that soap.

Hi Debbie! I’m not affiliated with A Horse Box, you’ll need to reach out to them directly on their site. 🙂

Saddle box is a bunch of junk. I really disliked the things I got in my boxes. Non-break away halter? Hard pass. Book that looked like someone had read it already? Cool thanks. Epona products are generally of low-quality and they send mostly Epona stuff. And treats with CORN as an ingredient? Last I checked I had horses not cattle. I switched to Horse Box and haven’t looked back. It’s 10 bucks cheaper and way more interesting products to try/actually use. Just my $0.02 *shrug*
