Boot Trade-In Sale

Spring has sprung which means now is the time to dust off those old boots you no longer want and replace them during our 3rd Annual Boot Trade-In Sale. During our Boot-Trade-In Sale you can trade in an old pair of boots – condition doesn’t matter- to get up to $20 off a new pair of boots!

Starting April 15th and running through April 29th when you trade in an old pair of boots you’ll get up to $20 off any pair of new boots priced over $120 or $10 off any boots marked under $120. Again condition doesn’t matter, they can look just like the boots above or worse! Keep in mind cowboy boots can be traded toward a pair of Huntseat Boots and vice versa, Muckboots can be used toward cowboy boots, etc. Just bring in an old pair of boots you no longer want and trade them toward a new pair!

This offer is good on multiple pairs of boots, it is not a one and done deal. But in order to receive the trade-in value you must “trade-in” a pair of boots toward a new pair. Offer is valid from the 15th of April till the 29th of April only.

Open House – Noble Outfitters Specials

Our 43rd Annual Spring Open House sale is approaching quickly! Before we go into the specifics of the sale we wanted to highlight Noble Outfitters who will have a rep here on Saturday and Sunday to help showcase many of their products.

The first of Noble’s products we are highlighting are their Men’s All Around Distressed Havana Cowboy boots, – pictured below & available now – and their ladies All Around Dakota cowgirl boots, which will be arriving soon!  The All Around boots feature soft leathers, an extremely long lasting outsole with a wear guarantee, along with their ankle shield that eliminates rubbing on the outside/inside of your ankle!

The Noble Outfitters rep will be here both Saturday and Sunday to help you find the proper fit for these boots and their MUDS. MUDS are the perfect boot for gardening or mucking stalls. The great thing about MUDS is they come in both Men’s and Women’s sizes and are not uni-sexed.  Both Men’s and Women’s styles are perfect for most any weather, are waterproof, and offer great traction in almost any weather condition.

Throughout the sale weekend you’ll receive a free pair of Noble Outfitters socks just for trying on a pair of the NEW All Around Boots from Noble Outfitters. Even better if you purchase a pair of the NEW All Around Boots you can enter into a raffle to win a free boot bag from Noble Outfitters (bag pictured below) – $54.95 value! What’s not to love there!

But maybe you’re not looking for a pair of boots. Noble Outfitters also has plenty of other great products like their Wave Fork. Their Wave Fork is a great update to the standard pitch fork. Rather than the head of the fork being a solid piece, the Wave Fork uses individual tines that are removable/replaceable in case a tine were to break allowing you to continue to use the fork. Each Wave Fork comes with a five year guarantee. If a tine were to break within that 5 year guarantee, contact Noble Outfitters and they will mail you a replacement tine at no charge. Tines are available in a variety of colors – approximately 60 color combinations.

A favorite among horse lovers has been their grooming tote. It’s light weight, comes in a variety of colors and has a mesh bottom to allow dirt and dust to fall through keeping the bottom of tote from building up dirt.

We do have a few of their knives, bracelets, belts, and jackets as well. And if you spend at least $100 dollars total on any combination of Noble Outfitters products you’ll receive a free Noble Outfitters baseball cap.

While here over the sale weekend if you have questions on any of the the Noble Outfitter products feel free to ask any of us who are in the store regularly or the sales representative who will be here on Saturday and Sunday! And stay tuned for what coming with the sale!

Show Pen Trends

Each year trends in the show pen change and this year is no different. Toward the middle of January we got a chance to get our first look at what companies like Hobby Horse and Royal Highness are producing for the year.

Both show strong indications that vests and shirt combinations are back and in a big way. Both companies are offering several different colored vests and solid colored shirts that can easily be mixed and matched to meet whatever your needs.

Although vests and shirts combinations are coming back, traditional blouses have not disappeared. Several styles, colors, and designs will be available from Hobby Horse each offering lots of stretch and sparkle built directly into the material cutting down on glitter and sequins falling off with wear and wash.

With the popularity of Ranch Horse Shows growing Hobby Horse has also made sure to include blouses that are multi-functional in both traditional western pleasure and ranch horse. The Lana Blouse, available in Black, Sterling, and French Tan, is a solid color blouse with no added embellishments that can be worn plain or with a vest to create whatever look you need for whatever type of show you participate in.

Below is your first look at what has arrived or will soon be arriving from Hobby Horse. You can find all of our Women’s Hobby Horse show clothing on our website and the same goes for our Girl’s Hobby Horse show clothing along with prices and sizes available. Pictures of the Royal Highness items will be posted once they arrive.

What’s New this Spring?

Spring seems to be fast approaching as several companies are beginning to send out their spring shipment of goods, regardless of Punxsutawney Phil predicting 6 more weeks of winter.
