What is in a Horse Subscription Box?

November 06, 2018

my horse box subscription

Have you ever thought about subscribing to a pet's subscription box for monthly goodies and treats?
But what exactly goes into a box specifically for horses?
Is it different to what you could expect for other pets?
Are there things for the horse rider too?

At Hoobynoo we were very curious so did our research and interviewed
My Horse Box to find out what exciting this could be coming through your letterbox...

Who is My Horse Box?
My Horse Box was set up by Annabelle and her partner Jonathan. They work together to create a brand that reflects their love of the Equestrian World whilst highlighting the very best products they can find.

What was your motivation for starting up My Horse Box?

I used to subscribe to various beauty subscription boxes, and I just loved the concept of receiving a surprise treat in the post every month. I was also aware that there were subscription boxes for cats and dogs, and when I started horse riding in 2016 I wondered if there was a monthly box for equestrians!

I had a look online but I couldn't find what I was looking for, which was a luxury box full of grooming products, riding socks, treats, brushes...so to cut a long story short, I made one myself!

How much is a Subscription?
Is there a standard fee for a year or can someone opt-in and out if they wanted? 

The monthly subscription is £34.99 a month including UK delivery. You can also subscribe for 3 months or 6 months in advance, which gives you a discount! We want to make the subscription process as convenient as possible, so you can cancel your subscription at any time, with no fuss.

 

What sort of goodies and treats can we expect to find in one of your subscription boxes? 

We deliberately choose to work with small, UK brands who make fabulous products which you won't necessarily find on the shelves of every tack shop. Each box has a theme which dictates what kind of products we feature, and in the past, we've included things like equine sunscreen, organic treats, hoof clay, hi-viz items, riding socks, wound balm, equestrian candles, feed balancer, and everything in between!

 

 

What has been your (and your beloved horse tester’s) favourite product or treat that you've included in your box? 

Something that always goes down well with our subscribers is our engraved wooden grooming tools. We have them engraved with our logo and have included dandy brushes, goats hair face brushes, hoof picks and body brushes. They're so luxurious and sturdy and people seem to love them! People also love receiving riding socks, which is why we're currently in the process of launching our own range called My Horse Sox!

 

Do you attend fairs and shows? 

Sometimes. We attended Olympia in 2016 which was a fabulous, if not exhausting, experience. However, the idea of an online subscription box service doesn't translate that well to a stand as we don't have any stock! We still love attending shows as spectators though, and it's a great place to meet new brands to work with. 

 

Are their seasonal gift boxes if someone wanted to get a box as a gift?

You can get a one-off box by signing up and then immediately cancelling.

So if, for example, you wanted to give someone the December box as a Christmas present, you'd sign up in November and then cancel your subscription, so you'd just be sent that one December box.

Which, by the way, we highly recommend doing - they make fabulous presents!
