I am thrilled to get to review another Cavali Club box, as I got to review their very first box in 2018. It’s been so fun to watch them grow over the past few years. If you’re unfamiliar with Cavali Club, they offer seasonal subscription boxes filled with 5-7 thoughtfully curated items for both horse and rider, with a mission to “introduce you to your new favorite product, all while lifting up our fellow equestrian entrepreneurs in the process.” In this box, you can find items from up-and-coming small businesses as well as well-known names like KONG. I haven’t been able to get up to the barn as often as I’d like so there are a couple things I haven’t been able to really try yet, but I will update once I have.
Disclaimer: I received this box for free to try out. Being gifted products allows me to try a wider variety of items to put to the test and review for you. Receiving an item for free does not influence my opinions, which are always 100% truthful and my own.
KONG Equine Mega Wubba (Retail $21.99)
Full disclosure, I haven’t taken this to the barn to see if Sadie will play with it yet, but I have a feeling she will love it. She loves to investigate and I think she will have a great time with it – I will update when I take it up!
Back on Track Physio Nikki Support Socks (Retail $32)
I love Back on Track’s products for horses – their saddle pads and day sheets were a game-changer for Quinn so I was excited to try these out for myself. These socks have nice cushioning at the toe and heel without being bulky, and a slim calf that fits great under boots. They’re supportive due to the compression, but don’t feel like they’re squeezing you. I can’t say that they’re magic socks or anything, but they sure are comfy and next time my ankle flares up I’ll pop these on and see what happens.
Honey & Hank Equestrian Bit Geometric Tea Towel (Retail $22)
I officially have way too many tea towels, so I will be gifting this one to someone but I love that it has a little tab for hanging on a hook. It feels sturdy, the print is cute, and is a good size too.
Dapplebay Co. Good Rides Equestrian Hip Bag (Retail $56)
This hip bag was the star of the show for me. It’s made from water-resistant fabric, has two zippered sections, and an ingenious magnetic flap on the back that makes attaching/detaching to your belt a breeze. It’s pretty big, so I’m not sure how often I’d actually wear it on my belt but I would much rather it be too big than too small when it comes to bags. I think this would be great for trail rides when you might need to take a little more with you, or at a show when you don’t want to haul a backpack around but still need more than just a phone-sized bag. I also got curious and went to see if it would stick to my fridge and IT DOES. So you can also put it on any magnetic surface to hold whatever you need, which is pretty sweet.
Fairchild Farm & Mercantile Handmade Goat’s Milk Hand Soap (Retail $5)
This hand soap is SO cute that I didn’t want to use it without a special occasion. I will probably save it to put on a little dish for when guests come over or as bathroom decor. I loved reading the backstory about this family business that started off as a 4H project making goat’s milk soap!
Unicorn Grooming Spray (Retail $19)
To be honest – I haven’t tried this one yet. Sadie is shedding SO much right now, I don’t even know if it would do anything at the moment so I’ll be saving this for when her coat isn’t in a state of disarray.
Blue Ribbon Beauty Satin Lipstick in Coral Sorrel (Retail $11.95)
When Blue Ribbon Beauty first launched, I immediately bought their two eyeshadow palettes and still love them. Their lipstick is a new addition and while I’m more of a tinted lip balm or lip stain kinda gal, I really like this lipstick. The color is a bit deeper than I expected and I wouldn’t really call it coral, but it’s a really pretty shade and I can imagine it suiting a broad range of skin tones. It’s easy to apply, is comfortable on the lips, wears well, and is cruelty-free which is a must when it comes to skincare and cosmetics for me. I’ll definitely be keeping this in my makeup bag!
Cavali Club has had some incredible curations over the past few years. I bought Fall & Winter 2020 boxes with my own money (and regret not getting Winter 2021). They tend to offer a unique variety of exclusive items that can’t be beat for the price. This box isn’t their strongest curation in my opinion as it has a lot of items that have been a bit overdone in subscription boxes, like socks, tea towels, soap, and grooming sprays. They’re all great products in their own right though, so if you don’t have a big surplus of these items, love trying these types of things out, or haven’t subscribed to a box before, you’ll be thrilled. Or, if you wanted a particular item in this box like the hip bag, you’ll get a great deal and have plenty of gifts lined up to give.
