New Sale Items; Introducing 5 Star ELITE cinchas

Hey, everyone, sorry for not posting for so long. I have been struggling to figure out exactly what approach I should take to this blog. I have not had much experience with blogs, especially business blogs. Also, I have been insanely busy with a renovation project that got out of hand (see my personal blog), and have barely had time to screw my head on in the morning, let alone do anything else!

Last weekend, Mike and Laurel Easton from 5 Star Equine Products attended a Ray Hunt seminar. When Laurel has half a minute to call her own, she is going to send me some gems that they took away from the weekend for me to post.

There are some new items on sale for the week in my Bargain Basement:

1" Natural Mule Saddle Pad, Regular Skirt (30"x30"): $152.95
1" Black Horse Saddle Pad, Full Skirt (32"x32"): $188.95
7/8" Brown Horse Saddle Pad, Regular Skirt: $152.95

These are all 10% off until May 10. In addition, there are still the other limited-time sale offerings on (see sidebar.)

I learned something today about cinchas that I thought I would share with you:

The reason that mohair is used for cinchas instead of regular sheep's wool is two-fold:
  1. The tensile strength of mohair is much greater, and
  2. The fibers of mohair bond together much better than wool.
On the subject of cinchas, I would like to take a minute to let you know that soon you will see 5 Star's new brand of cinchas in my store. 5 Star Elite Cinchas were developed by fiber artist Darin Alexander, exclusively for Wells 5 Star Equine Products. Darin was mentored by Steve Bork, and his creations are in line with 5 Star's philosophy of what is best for your horse.

What am I waiting for? Well, I find it best to have individual photos of cinchas to post on my listings, which Darin has not had time to provide me with, yet. However, if you want to take a sneak peek, check out their online brochure. Then, if you are "chomping at the bit" and want to get one right away, e-mail me and I will post a listing to my store JUST FOR YOU!! Not just anyone would do that for you, but I would! *wink*

If you have any other comments or questions you would like to share with me, feel free to leave them in the comments section, or e-mail me directly. I love hearing from you!
