Heart to Horse Box: August

Heart to Horse Box is a horsey subscription that you can order either as a one time box or as a monthly delivery. I opted for the sub since I like presents. You save a little each month that way too. This sub is unique in that it includes something for the horse AND something for the rider each month. My favorite part is that 25% of sales each month is donated to a local charity. This month's charity recipient is Gentle Giants Draft Horse Rescue. They seem to be a favorite as they've been the recipient the last few months.

This month's box was pretty heavy and I really couldn't wait to see what was inside!

As always, there is an info card detailing the contents of the box. They threw in a few little extras this month that weren't on the card as well. Thanks Heart to Horse Box! I love surprises :)


 This little luggage tag is adorable. It's perfect for me too since my luggage is purple! (Purple is a lot easier to see on the baggage carousel than black. Truth!)

Also as a bonus was a sample of Absorbine Botanicals liniment. I've gotten this same sample from my local tack store before, and it's a nice product.

So before I show you the rest of the items this month, I have to pause and exclaim that this was EXACTLY WHAT I NEEDED this month! It's like they were following along on my blog with all of Rio's foot woes. Seriously. You'll see.

SyrVet Bandages: $1.43 each
Not one, but TWO rolls of self adhesive bandages. I've been going through about a roll a day for Rio's foot, so this is SO needed!

Hoof Brush: $2.51
I'm not desperate for a hoof brush, but I don't have one, so it's a nice addition to my grooming box. The horses may appreciate my using this rather than their regular body brush on their feet.

Bigeloil Poultice Hoof Pads: $6.29
I definitely could have used these a month ago! They are hoof pads with poultice in them so you don't make a huge mess getting clay all over everything. I'm excited to have these in the medicine box! Hopefully I won't need them for a long, long time.

Animalintex: $7.19
Animalintex is much like that hoof pad above, but it comes in sheets to be used on legs. I actually had been using this cut up into smaller pieces for Rio's foot last month. I used all of mine up, so I'm happy I don't have to go out to replace it now! Thankfully we're done with the poultice stage for Rio.

Tough 1 Cooling Ice Boot: $31.49

The "big" item! This thing is awesome! I mean, I wish it wasn't red, since red isn't our color. But other than that, this is amazing. It's an ice boot! So basically each of those little squares is filled with a gel. You store this in the freezer so the little gel pockets get very cold. Then when you need to ice a leg, you just wrap this bad boy around and you're good to go! It's very flexible and has four straps to hold it in place even if your horse moves around. I've been using a human leg boot for my horses which works ok, but it tends to slide down and doesn't really get tight enough. This will be so much better. Though again, I'm hoping to not need it for a long, long time!

This month's box was probably the most useful I've received so far. It was low on presents for the human (just that little luggage tag really) but the items are amazing! They are exactly the items I've been using all month for Rio's sore foot. And that boot would have been handy last week for Jamp's cellulitis.

The box had a retail value of $50.34 (not including the extras). The ice boot alone was worth the cost of the entire box! This was definitely a great deal. I don't think there's a single thing in this box that I won't use, and that's kind of rare when you get a box of surprises in the mail. Definitely a win this month!

If you're interested in trying Heart to Horse Box, head over here and check it out. That's not a referral link. As far as I know they do not have any referral incentives. If they do, someone tell me so I can cash in!
What do you think of Heart to Horse Box?


  1. I've been using that same ice boot on my horse and I have to say I LOVE it. It really wraps around his entire leg and pastern and actually stays there. Great products all around!

    1. Ohhh! I'm glad to hear that! With my herd, I know I'll be trying it probably sooner than later. Thanks for letting me know it does the job!

  2. I love the purple luggage tag! I pretty much like anything in purple haha.

    1. Me too! Purple, pink, teal...
      Thankfully I was mature enough not to make pink and purple my farm colors... but I did consider it!

  3. Fantastic post dear! Love this so much.

    1. I was ridiculously excited to see this in the box. I'm hoping now that I'm super prepared, maybe I won't need it for a long, long time... Hahaha.. I can't even type that seriously.

  5. wooahh.. didn't know there were horses boxes! so cool! :D
