All Tropical Rider items are discounted 20% through Monday 4/5 (including already discounted merchandise). I just scored 2 pairs of ultragrip knee patch breeches from their clearance inventory for $28/ea!! Happy Easter to me! They have a decent selection of full seats, extended patch, and knee patch breeches in both ultragrip and deerskin in their clearance inventory, and at an additional 20% off, you can't beat it!
OK, when I first heard about "Himalayan Salt Blocks" I almost snorted tea through my nose, thinking "oh, boy, what a gimmick." Then a friend got them for her horses and reported they were consuming more salt. We live on the hot, humid Texas Gulf Coast. Last summer was especially bad. My horses did not TOUCH their salt blocks - either white or mineral. I supplemented electrolytes all summer. I finally broke down and bought some "Himalayan salt" from SmartPak - and my horses immediately started using them, have not quit, and drink much more water in their stalls overnight.
And then I found virtually the same thing on Ebay - and it works out to about HALF what I paid on SmartPak. It's 24 lbs (6 'spools') so those with just one horse may want to go in with someone, but $51 including shipping! I bought some in Feb and they are bigger than the ones I got from SmartPak. The seller shipped very promptly.
