No secret that vendor shopping is one of my favorite eventing pastimes, and we’re so very happy here at EN to connect our favorite companies with other like-minded shoppers! Each day we’re bringing you new deals via EN’s second annual Virtual Vendor Village (check out Thursday’s deals here), then sharing our top picks of the day. Here are five that caught my fancy today!
Kerrits: Our friends at Kerrits have rolled out the red carpet for EN’s Virtual Vendor Village. Their Tent Sale is offering incredible bargains on breeches, gloves, tops, jackets, outerwear and more. My Kerrits krush — the Stretch Competitor Koat, marked down from $129 to just $69. It comes in gorgeous colors like Plumeria, Henna, Skylark and Flint Plaid … so fresh and springy!
VIP Equestrian: Don’t listen to me, who has won exactly zero (0) medals — listen to six-time Olympian Phillip Dutton, who says, “I’m really excited about the VIP saddle pads. I think the concept is a revolution for horses’ backs and the way that they fit.” That endorsement, plus this video of it protecting an iPhone as it gets run over by a car, is all you need to know. Get $10 off an order (valid 1 use per customer, good through 4/30/2021) using code LR2021.
ShowAssist: When you need an extra hand at the horse show, wouldn’t it be nice to hire some short-term help with the click of a button? ShowAssist is a mobile app that connects owners, trainers and riders with experienced grooms and other support staff for help with everything from “StallAssist” tasks like bathing and braiding, stall setup/takedown, hand-grazing and night checks to “RingAssist” tasks like schooling ring jump crew and ringside grooming. Technology … the future is now! Learn more and download the app here.
Stable View: If you have a Stable View event on your 2021 calendar (even if it’s just in pencil), this is the deal is for you (and it could turn that pencil into pen!). The premier Aiken, South Carolina venue has three offers running for Thursday: William Fox Pitt hat and DVD for $25 shipped; 50% off Oktoberfest accommodations (call 484-356-3173 to redeem); 50% off Eventing Academy Horse Trials (call 484-356-3173 to redeem).
Ecovet: It’s starting to get buggy out there — are you stocked up on fly spray? Now’s your chance to stockpile the good stuff with this 30% off offer from Ecovet (use promo code Virtual30), the first fatty-acid fly repellent for horses. Tested and endorsed by veterinarians, Ecovet provides a legit alternative to toxic pesticides. We’ve all been burnt before by “all-natural fly sprays” that turn out to be useless garbage, but this one is different — IT REALLY WORKS. And! It stays put. Many thanks to Dr. John and his crew for their continued support of EN!
