Summer Fun July 15 2014, 0 Comments

Summer is well underway, which means hot days and early morning and late evening riding to beat the heat. It also means summer giveaways! While we're working on a blog post on ways to beat the summer heat to keep you and your horse safe and happy, we wanted to share with you a few great summer giveaways we've heard about so that you can enter for a chance to win free stuff. And who doesn't like free stuff? Even better, it's also really great stuff (personally I've used products from all of these companies and love them).

Got mud? Even though things have dried out some this summer, thunderstorms blow through with torrential rains and it still takes a few days to dry out. And don't even talk to me about what spring and fall look like when we're actually getting a lot of rain! Well, there's a solution. Lighthoof's mud management panels actually help keep the ground firm so that whether it's from a fast moving thunderstorm or a few days of rain, or spring thaw, your paddocks can stay firm and your horses can stay out of the mud.

If you've got mud, you need mud boots, and Noble Outfitters is giving away a pair of their Mud Stay Cool boots that will keep your feet cool and dry, through Horse Channel. You can enter here: http://www.horsechannel.com/horse-magazines/horse-illustrated/1408-noble-muds-boots_contest.aspx

Speaking of Horse Channel, they have a bunch of great giveaways going on right now. My favorites are the Cosamin ASU (I swear by that stuff for my knees) and the Absorbine Botanicals (I've wanted to try it). You can browse through all of their contests and enter here: http://www.horsechannel.com/horse-magazines/horse-illustrated/1407-wahl-km10_contest.aspx

There's also some great breeches you can win in the Got Power/Got Stretch photo contest from FITS. They're giving away two pairs each of their PerforMAX full seat and Megan knee patch breeches, so whether your a Hunter/Jumper or Eventer or Dressage Queen, they've got a breech for you. I personally show in the Megan knee patch breeches and love them! Enter the Stretch contest here: http://woobox.com/p5gchj and the Power contest here: http://woobox.com/ptoykg and get 25 votes for your photo for a chance to win. 

Have any other cool contests or giveaways going on that you want to share? Leave us a note in the comments and we can all share a chance to win more great horse stuff! 

Cheers,
CJ
