Favorite Flicks: The Christmas Edition

As Christmas fast approaches, we’ve been getting into the holiday spirit with a few of our favorite YouTube flicks. Watch them in good cheer, and enjoy your holidays!

Every year since it was uploaded, this video of a little girl discovering she got a pony for Christmas has brought a tear to our eyes. We’re pretty sure the pony was as lucky as the little girl in this case:

EBay had its own take on the ‘pony for Christmas’ concept, which of course wasn’t quite as touching but turned out to be pretty funny:

The Budweiser Clydesdales are a perennial favorite at SuperBowl time, and they usually make a few choice appearances around the holidays, too. This one isn’t Christmas-specific, but seems like something our ponies would do to us on a white Christmas if they could:

And last but certainly not least, there’s the Channel 3 Shetland Pony from across the pond, whose colleagues donned Christmas sweaters this year:

Merry Christmas to you and your horses from Two Horse Tack!

The gift that keeps on giving!

If you’re like us, you may get a little…preoccupied…around the holidays. The horses need feeding, the hay loft needs stocking, the kitchen floor is a mess. Before you know it, it’s almost the week before Christmas.present

Oh. It IS the week before Christmas.

We are able to priority ship custom tack orders in time for Christmas up until 8 a.m. Dec. 21. After that, rush shipping will get your order to you up until 8 a.m. on the 23rd. (In case you, like us, read ‘rush’ as ‘mortgage-the-house,’ most beta bridles, halters, and breastcollars ship rush status for $18 and larger orders with more than one piece are about $36). Currently, we’re offering a free upgrade to rush shipping from now until the 21st to be sure everything gets to you in plenty of time!

For this weekend only, call to place your order over the phone until 11 p.m. EST each day–859-338-4265. We’ll work with you to make sure your stuff gets to the right place at the right time.

Still  not sure what to get, or sure you’ll miss the deadline? Gift certificates make the perfect present–the recipient can choose the exact size and color that looks best on their horse, and you don’t have to worry about waiting for the postman.

It’s time for another tack giveaway!

If you didn’t win either of our last two tack giveaways, there’s still time!

Our current tack giveaway is for a buckle-nose halter.

buckle nose halterThis style is extremely popular in Europe, but it has just as many advantages on this side of the pond. This type of halter allows you to switch from the halter to the bridle without leaving your horse’s head free, a particular advantage for trail riders.

The buckle nose option is also helpful for grooming if you have the sort of horse who likes to plant his whole head in the mud and gets dirt caked under the halter.

It’s also a great option for the novice horse or rider to give the student confidence in handling the horse on the ground without removing the halter altogether.

Our buckle nose halter has a double-buckle crown piece that allows for maximum customization of fit, a throatlatch strap for easy on and off, optional brass hardware, matching lead, and optional leather breakaway crown. You can also choose the width of your beta halter–between 5/8 and 1 inch.

All you have to do is fill out the online form here to be entered between now and Dec. 31. All participants in the contest will be given a $5 gift card just for entering.

Also, don’t forget that we’re offering a free upgrade to rush shipping for orders placed until the Dec. 21 to ensure they get to you in time for Christmas.

Congratulations to our tack giveaway winner!

Congratulations to Maya B. of Arizona, who won a free two-in-one bitless bridle in our most recent tack giveaway!

Maya is the proud owner of 19-year-old Arabian mare La Negra. When Maya got her, the mare was abused and neglected (think no farrier for three YEARS) and had been used for horse tripping. After two years of hard work, Maya tells us this gorgeous mare is finally back in fantastic shape. She still has a lingering quarter crack in one of her hooves due to years of neglect, but she has learned to trust again. The pair go trail riding across all kinds of terrain, swimming in the lake, and have played with barrels and jumps. La Negra is now relaxed and trusting enough to be a kid’s horse.

Maya chose a bridle with aqua bling, which we think is going to look fabulous on La Negra.

La Negra, in all her glory

La Negra, in all her glory

We salute you Maya, for making this sweet girl what she is today!

If you entered our tack giveaway but didn’t get drawn for the bridle, have no worries–everyone is a winner! We opted to give everyone who entered a $5 gift card to our shop, which should show up as a coupon in your email inbox this evening. Feel free to share the coupon with friends and family–it’s a gift that keeps on giving! Even better, we’re still doing our ornament giveaway for all orders over $25 while supplies last.

Also, take a look at our next tack giveaway here.
