BRAN MESH - Bran Mashes have been a horseman's tradition for decades. This scent, featuring molasses and oat, smells just as delicious as the warm yummy treat we love to give our favorite horses when the weather gets chilly!
CARRIAGE RIDE - "Dashing through the snow, in a one-horse open sleigh!" This special Holiday scent was inspired by a carriage ride through the woods on a snowy Winter day! The perfect Christmas scent...
BLANKET SEASON - For Equestrians, it's a bittersweet time of year. It means Winter has arrived, the barn chores are never-ending, and it's also just plain freezing outside! But, despite all of the cold weather, you just love seeing your horse all cute and cozy while sporting his new Winter blanket. This scent is sure to warm your heart!
HIGH END SADDLE - This candle is for the tack junkies, you know who you are. Your tack truck is overflowing, you have every possible color of saddle pad and polo wraps, and your horse is always in style! You'd choose a trip to the tack store over the mall any day, and not many things excite you as much as the allure of a beautiful well-made saddle... except for maybe the matching bridle. With this candle, now you can bring the entire tack store to your home!
Distinct, rich, and sensual, our Leather fragrance embodies the warm and luxurious aroma of fine leather tack. This scent has a classic and timeless characteristic that's perfect for both men and women.
SWEET FEED - A fantasy blend of wheat, honey, vanilla, notes of fig, caramelized brown sugar, and musk come together to create this tribute to one of every equestrian's favorite scents! This fragrance is infused with Lemon Essential Oil.
FRESH CUT HAY - It's an obsession that only other horse people understand, the fresh aroma of this season's first cutting, baled into a big bundle of happiness. Experience the sensation of a warm breeze blowing through freshly cut hay fields. (Your horse will love it too!)
Fresh Cut Hay fragrance is infused with natural orange essential oil and captures the essence of summer florals and the fresh aroma of freshly cut grass. And with a hint of orange and sandalwood, it's a natural scent you'll love any time of the year!
EARLY MORNING HACK - There is something so calming about getting up before the sun rises just to spend time with your horse. Perhaps, there is no better way to start the day, and there definitely has never been a better reason to get out of bed on the weekend! This scent is for all the overly enthusiastic and seemingly crazy equestrians who set their alarms for the crack of dawn just to hack out on their horse. This scent embodies everything there is to love about those early morning rides: the smell of crisp air and morning dew in the countryside, and the soothing feeling you get while taking in the scenery and soaking up the sunrise. Just you and your horse.
The scent begins with a white floral bouquet of carnation, lily, and crisp white grapefruit. The heart is a radiant blend of jasmine, tuberose, cyclamen, and violet. The base combines vanilla beans, East Indian sandalwood, rose crystals, and long-lasting musk. This fragrance is also infused with natural essential oils, including Grapefruit, Tuberose, and Lemon.
SHOW DAY - Relive the excitement and glory all over again with our Show Day Candle! The fragrance is a perfect mixture of the smell of clean tack mixed with a clean crisp smell of fresh air, sunshine, and fresh-cut grass!
CEDAR SHAVINGS - We all know that a freshly cleaned stall doesn't last long, but now the scent can last forever with this candle! Ahhhh, that barn smell, there is nothing like it! Every equestrian loves the scent of fresh cedar shavings in an old wooden barn. Ask any horse lover what their favorite scent is, and this will almost always be number two, right after the smell of their own precious pony. Most of us practically live at the barn anyway, but now you can bring a little piece of your favorite place home with you! It's the next best thing to moving your horse into the garage!
PEPPERMINTS FOR PONIES - Enjoy the scent of luscious sweet peppermint blended with rich vanilla. This scent is inspired by that special treat you give your horse after a perfect ride!
APPLES FOR HORSES - The crisp scent of fresh Macintosh apples right from the tree! Inspired by the warm fuzzy feeling we get when we take a special treat to our furry friends on the farm! This fragrance is very strong, but not overpowering due to the very natural scent. Lovers of this fragrance have said it smells like you are in the middle of an apple orchard! Apples for Horses is a very fresh fragrance with a note of tartness that will revitalize and energize your day while reminding you of your special friend! Horses are also very fond of this scent!
BEACH RIDE - It is every Equestrian's dream, just you and your horse galloping full speed down the beach. The wind in his mane, small drops of cool saltwater splashing your face as his hooves hit the sand, crisp ocean air, the sound of waves crashing against the shore, a beautiful sunset, and the feeling of complete freedom and utter bliss. Whether you are lucky enough to have experienced the thrill of a beach ride, or you're still dreaming of your day in the surf, this fragrance is for you. Keep on dreaming, horse girl!
This scent is clean, soothing yet invigorating. Our Beach Ride fragrance is a fresh and airy bouquet of orange blossom notes with a subtle hint of musk. This candle is infused with natural essential oils, including orange and lemon.
WASH RACK - This candle is inspired by the joy we get as equestrians when we give our horse friends a bath on the wash rack! Imagine a beautiful summer day, the smell of cool fresh water, the clean smell of soap, the beautiful outdoors, and that very short moment in time when your horse is completely squeaky clean! Sure, he is going to go roll in the mud as soon as you turn him out, but it was still totally worth it for that one hug around his neck, and that short-lived clean horsey smell, right?
The Wash Rack candle features the refreshing scent of forest greens, jasmine, green apple, and musk.
TRAIL RIDE - We equestrians live for the weekends when we get to take our horses to the mountains! Imagine, just you and your horse on a trail through the woods with nothing but the scent of fresh air and nature!
This candle features a fir tree scent topped off with a punchy, bright citrus note that is really pleasing. Capture the spirit of the trail with this strong, true, and enchanting scent, infused with natural cedarwood and pine essential oils.
RAINY DAY RIDE - Whether you get caught in a spontaneous summer shower while hacking out on your favorite trail, or there is a torrential downpour during your riding lesson. Is there anything more exhilarating than frolicking in the rain on horseback? Just make sure to keep that fancy saddle dry! Oh, and watch out for horse-eating puddles!
MOONLIGHT RIDE - There is nothing more peaceful than spending time with your horse after the sun goes down. Whether it is a quiet trail ride through the field with just you, your horse, and the light of the moon, or just a visit to the barn to hug his neck and give him a cookie (and goodnight kisses!), seeing your horse is always the perfect ending to any day. This candle was inspired by those late-night visits to the barn and the horses that make them special!
SPRING PASTURE - You know the feeling, Spring has started to show it's beautiful face, and you can finally stop worrying about messing with those silly hay bags! (Not to mention picking hay out of your hair and other unmentionable places!) You are able to turn your horse out into a fresh glorious green pasture! There is something so grand about the first day you realize that Spring has finally sprung, and horse season is about to be in full swing! This scent is the smell of a new Spring Pasture mixed with a little happiness and a touch of excitement! This fragrance is infused with natural essential oils, including Jasmine and orange.
INVOLUNTARY DISMOUNT - We’ve all been there. Perfect day, perfect ride… until all of a sudden it's not, and you find yourself face down in the dirt! But those of us who are truly dedicated pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and get right back in the saddle! Hopefully, you at least ended up with a good story to tell! This candle is inspired by all the bruised and broken equestrians out there who dare to get back up on their ponies! This one is a bit more of a novelty item, the scent actually smells like dirt! Fitting, right?
GIVE A HORSE A CARROT - A scent that is inspired by those of us who love to spoil our ponies rotten! The ones who love just spending time with our horses so much more than actually riding! This fragrance includes the smell of fresh carrots, straight from the garden! I have also added spice to this scent to make it pleasant for the home. Some people say it reminds them of a spiced carrot cake. It is one of my personal favorites, and it is perfect for any time of year!
FLY SPRAY - Introducing the newest scent that has been requested since I began my shop in January 2016! I finally figured out how to recreate this scent! If you love the smell of Fly Spray this one is for you! This candle also contains citronella so you can burn it outdoors to actually keep the flies away! How nifty is that?!
Tips To Get The Most Out Of Your Candle
TRIM THE WICK - Make sure to keep the wick trimmed to ¼” This will ensure the best possible scent throw from your candle and keep it from burning too quickly. Fingernail clippers work great for this!
CREATE A WAX POOL - Soy wax has a memory and should be allowed to achieve a full melt pool on its very first burn. This means that the pool of liquid wax should reach the edges of the container. If the candle is extinguished prior to allowing a full melt pool, all subsequent melt pools will not go past the first one.
To create a full melt pool, burn the candle for a minimum of one (1) hour for every inch of its diameter. All future burns should follow the first one's path and melt fully to the sides. Do not burn longer than 4 hours at a time.
