Announcing Bel Joeor Metier Etsy Shop!

With huge thanks to everyone who has helped out and offered advice, ideas, feedback, and more along the way, I'm really excited to announce that I've opened an Etsy shop!

The first thing you should know about it is something I'm really happy about, which is that 10% of all profits will be going to Tristan's rescue: Ever After Mustang Rescue in Biddeford, Maine. I give to them when I can, but money has been tight this year, so I'm really excited to create a way by which I can give them more. They do a great job with a really difficult job.

And now, the shop!

To start off with, I have two types of listings: handy bags and fleece saddle covers.

The handy bags are small bags, about the size of a cosmetic bag, with tough twill fabric on the outside and flannel on the inside. They're embroidered in fun colors with equestrian designs. A few bloggers helped me with the prototype and did reviews; Carly at Poor Woman Showing and Jen at Cob Jockey both reviewed the ones they received as part of my testing group.

They're $15 each and I hope you'll consider them when you need a new bag or a fun horsey gift! If there's a color or design you're hoping to see or would like to custom-order, let me know and I'll see what I can do.

Clicking on the images below brings you to their listings - and there are loads more on the website.

 Buy this bag!

Next up, fleece saddle covers! I had a lot of fun picking fabric for these.

They're lined with a paracord elastic that's really tough and will keep the cover itself snug. I adjusted both the cut of the saddle cover and the length of the elastic based on feedback from my testers, so these have been workshopped to perfection!

They should fit any size English saddle, but if you have anything especially big send me a message and I can make you a custom one that's a bit bigger. (By that I mean 18.5"+).

These are selling for $20, and here are some examples - click on the links to go to their listings, and there's loads more!

If you've read through all of that, you get a reward!

Enter the code OPENING2017 at checkout, and get 10% off through November!

I'll post here periodically, but if you want to get email announcements of new products, you can sign up for the Bel Joeor Metier newsletter below. Probably the first email will go out when I add new things to the shop, and my plan is to do that about mid-November.
