a horse box

I have been seeing posts about these horse box and bark box things all over Facebook for a while now. Then Karley who writes a blog that I am new to reading, All In, did a review from the horse box that she ordered.
"Why are you flashing that thing in my face when I am trying to eat this delicious treat?"
Yeah, it was pretty cool! A Horse Box is a box of horsey items that get shipped right to your house every month. Each box is different, so you never know what you will get. It is kinda exciting, the wait for the box and the anticipation of what cool new things that will come in the box. I know I was excited for my box to arrive.

You can order a one month or a six month subscription of A Horse Box. They have mini boxes (what I got in my unsuccessful efforts to save money), regular horse boxes, and tack boxes.

The mini boxes have two to three items inside. The horse box has four to seven things in it. The tack box is a one time gift box that has the same items in it every time. This would make a great gift for those who show.

Ok, on to my box!
Nicely packed box and easy to open!
Majesty's wafers. I met them a couple years ago at Equine Affaire. Even though Shyloh doesn't need these supplements, it is nice to have. It included an Omega wafer, a Bio + wafer, and a Flex wafer. Good stuff, but not something I feel Shyloh needs.
Nicker Baits! I have been wanting to get some of these for Shy. I am sure she will love them. Looks like peppermint, banana, rock candy, and maybe sweet potato cookies
Dermacloths. Perfect for winter because they are rinse free. 
Muck Off body scrub for me! How nice since winter brings on the super dry skin that makes me itchy.  And I may or may not have had a little taste. . .hey, its sugar, mandarin orange and grapefuit!
And a sticker and pen.
So I technically got more than the two to three items in my mini box, which makes A Horse Box even better than advertised! What will next month's box hold? 

And. . .hats are clearly not as cool as hoodies and coolers. . .but I am still holding the contest. I mean, it's free, so what can it hurt to enter? Hit up this post and give it a whirl!


  1. I've looked at a couple A Horse Box's and while I think the idea is really freaking awesome I just felt for the price point probably not worth my $$, but I am also super picky when it comes to things, and I know what I like and therefore don't need much in the way of horse samples. Me on the other hand, totally subscribed to Birchbox because $10 of makeup samples is great for me because I have no idea what i like makeup wise :P

    1. I opted for the cheap one to just try it out. I like the idea of a surprise every month,

  2. This seems great on the one hand but I just don't think I could wrap my brain around the whole surprise purchase thing. I have a pretty strict budget and would rather spend money on things I know I need instead of something I might like or need. But I enjoy hearing what other people are getting out of it.

    1. I like the surprise aspect. It's kinda cool to see things out there I never would have tried or didn't know existed. Totally understand the budget thing. . .I am supposed to be on a strict budget, too, but sometimes I can't help myself.

  3. How fun! I saw these floating around and thought it was a great idea. :)

  4. I've done those subscription boxes in the past and they're a ton of fun. I didn't even know they had horse ones :)

    1. I want to do the Bark Box, but they are out of my price range right now.

  5. I love a horse box!! It's so fun to get a box full of goodies each month!! And stuff you have never tried or heard of!!

    Glad you liked it :)
