I don’t want to be a total bummer but the end of the summer holidays is rapidly approaching. I don’t know about you but I like to make sure everything is as organised as possible before I go back to work. This includes my horsey & dog stuff!
I like everything to be ready to use and organised so when I go back to work and have less time to hang around at the stables my stuff will be tidy, I will know where everything is and it will be clean!
Here are my top back to school picks from Amazon.com. Just click on the pictures or the highlighted words to shop!! Also Amazon will convert the currency to your own country by the way. So if you are not shopping from the US. Don’t worry!

- Get your grooming kit in order!
Now is there anything more satisfying than cleaning out your dirty old grooming kit?! I just love it! I have recently moved my grooming kit to a bag that I can carry on my shoulder and I will never use a tray again! I can now carry my tack & my grooming kit at the same time, saving me a trip to the tack room & how nice are these colours?! They stay cleaner too, as I hang my bag next to Mya when I am brushing her and then a lot less dirt and hay gets in there when it is off the floor & I don’t need to keep bending down too.
2. Buying your dog/horse food in bulk & keeping it in a large container
If you buy you dog/horse food in bulk it’s cheaper. Fact. So get your self a big container that will keep it fresh. Shop Amazon here for Dog Food Containers.
Get your horse and dog food delivered! I order my dog’s food on Amazon as I couldn’t find the one he likes here in France. It is great. I don’t have to carry it to & from the car. The delivery guy brings it straight to my door!
3. Get ready for school or work with this cool lunch box.
I am a big packed lunch fan! When I was nursing full time I took my own lunch everyday. It saves you so much money if you take your own lunch. You can also make sure that you are eating nice healthy lunches that you prepared yourself instead of picking something quick & fattening! Amazon have loads for adults and kids.
4. Get your riding gear cleaned and organised!
Sorry but this is the coolest boot bag I have EVER seen! It has flamingos on it! Flamingos! If you are like me and go riding in different places or just like your stuff to be kept clean and dry in a bag whilst in the tack room, this is the bag for you! It is just so cool!
5. Ready for school?
Your kid will be the coolest in the playground with this pretty horse backpack. I want it and I am an adult! You can also get a matching pencil case too.
6. Get your horses rugs ready for winter
Tidying out your tack room? Where do you keep your horse’s rugs during the summer? I used to get mine washed then keep them in my parents garage. That is not an option anymore as I don’t live in the same country as them! I deffo need one of these in my life! You can just pop your clean blankets in the bag and then the rugs are kept clean and away from pesky rodents until you need them again in the winter. Great idea!
7. School Supplies
8. Did you know that you can order your groceries from Amazon? Get stocked up for school!
9. Get extra supplies for your horse ready for winter.
Make sure you have spares of everything you need to prepare for your horse for when he comes in for the winter. I make sure I can prepare my horses hay net for that evening and the following morning at the same time. I also prepare his feed for the following day too. Anything that saves time when you have gone back to work!
10. Get your warmer clothes back out.
There are bargains to be had off season! If you need a new jacket start thinking about buying one now, as you may find they are a lot cheaper off season. There are some great equestrian brands on Amazon like Ariat where you can get some real bargains.
