Riding Warehouse: The Rumors are True

LOOK AT MY HORSE MY HORSE IS SO CUTE
Truth be told, I almost never buy things new from retailers these days (we'll exclude PS of Sweden from this discussion). I mean, I price check on websites, yeah, but beyond that? Not really my thing. I'm all about bargain hunting, back-door deals, and buying used.

So when bloggers started reviewing Riding Warehouse like it was the latest, greatest thing, I was like "meh" and didn't really look in to it.

But you all know I've been on a hunt for novelty stirrups. What you don't know is that despite my Ho status, I am a confirmed tightwad and the idea of paying more than $125 shipped for lil platforms to put my feet on was giving me absolute stitches.

And then for some random reason, I ran over to Riding Warehouse's website on a whim. (Never do this, apparently.)

They had composite flex Royal Riders (NOT the knock offs) on clearance for $125. And free shipping over $50. And I had a 15% coupon code THAT THEY LET ME STACK ON TOP OF THE CLEARANCE PRICE.

my pretties
Um can I get a HELLZ YEAH?

Thank you. That was late Monday afternoon. I snagged the last set of clearance stirrups, a pair of white bell boots I'd been wanting (for like 50% off), and hit order. The whole shebang shipped (FREE!) to me and arrived on my porch by Thursday afternoon.

To reiterate: I just got $180 stirrups and $30 bell boots with two day shipping via UPS for $122. BRAND SPANKING NEW.

I will definitely be a repeat customer.

PS: I was going to use my sweet Canadian bell boots in our clinic last weekend, but when it's 28f while I'm tacking up, I am NOT taking pull ons off.

    1. It is doable, but expensive. I ordered a massive haul and paid more than I would have liked for shipping, but everything was here in less than a week!

  9. As someone that's not been very good at following blogs for last 6 months, I've been in the dark of this mysterious website. I HAD to see your post today. Thanks, now I'm addicted and staring at bank account side by side with website. Sigh.

  13. Dude, welcome to the dark (yet totally wonderful) side of RW. You can thank Amanda for my RW obsession. And yes, NEVER think you're just going to "meander" around their site. Simply meandering around RW never actually happens ;) Glad you loved them!
