Cavali Club Spring Box was so exciting to get. Unfortunately due to my mares suspensory injury and snow that did not melt until end of April (which then became mud) it took me a long time before I could really use these products to their full advantage. That being said, this box was so fun and I have loved every single product inside. I got to experience products I never ever would have had the chance to otherwise, and that alone was a really great experience.
When I first got this box, there was a couple things missing. Any level of concern I had was relieved, because I immediately got in contact with the company. I actually got to speak with the CEO, Carly, herself, and she fixed it promptly and kindly.
The presentation of this box is beautiful. It came with a really nice pamphlet detailing all the products and their story. It really was a nice personal touch that made me understand what I had got.
Along with the products that came in the spring box, I also ordered some additional add on items. These add on ideas I got where the Bipimbap Chap Stick, Bibimbap Face Mask, an Equestrian Stockholm headband, Snaffle bracelets and a Noel Asmar Tack Cleaning Cloth. These items were listed at a really great price and they were included with the contents of the Spring Box, not shipped separately.
Fit and Feel
The Infused Equestrian Pedi
This hoof conditioner was an awesome product to get. I had been so excited to try products by The Infused Equestrian. The Cavali Club box was a really great place to start. I really liked this product, I started it on a day when my mare had just had her feet trimmed and used it religiously until her next trim. I did not tell my farrier I was using a new product, and just waited to here what he had to say. His exact words were “Her feet look great, whatever you are doing, continue to do it.”
The applicator was a bit different than the classic Hoof Flex brush I was used to. It is more of a classic shoe polish brush, but it did the job just as well! The Infused Equestrian is great because they pride themselves in having their products made totally natural, cruelty free and will not harm your horse. Pedi Hoof Conditioner is specifically made of natural olive oil and essential oils.

Herd of Zebras Tee-Shirt
If you guys have followed me for any period of time you’ll know how much I love Herd of Zebras. The clothing line was made to represent your unique self as well as the unity for others who embrace their self worth, the scars they turned into stripes and to know you aren’t alone.
This shirt is one of my new favorites. It is very soft, and fits perfectly. I got this shirt in a medium, and I would not want it any smaller. It is a perfect fit for my body and for my soul. I am so proud to wear something like this to represent something so much bigger. This company is something I would be thrilled to see included in future boxes as it is great quality and a great message.
Myst Lineament Bombs
Myst, first and foremost, is beautiful. They have absolutely nailed it in packaging. Whenever a friend of mines sees my lineament bombs tucked safely in their little bag, they are immediately jealous because it is the best bag ever. Because these are a product you cannot get in Canada (as of yet). these bombs are like gold to me.
They are made of all natural ingredients and essential oils. You put one in 1 gallon for water, and apply to the body with a sponge. Remove excess water and let it dry on the body.
I really liked this concept of liniment bombs. While I am a fan of liniment that you can apply to singular areas, that does not help you out when your horse has had a hard full body work out. I like to take this product in my bucket of water and sponge and scrub into all areas of body that need a little extra TLC. How do I know it works? Well, my mare spent all of her bath time asleep with her eyes closed instead of mowing down on some grass, if I pick sleep over snacks you better know I am relaxed!

The Tack Hack Saddle Cover
This is SUCH a cool product to add into a box. Honestly, a saddle cover? How amazing is that, it is one of those things you can never have to many but you also never have enough of. This saddle cover made by The Tack Hack is really good quality. It is made of a thick polyester fabric and is lined a with a soft velour.
My only comment against this saddle cover is that for my Mondega All Purpose Saddle, it is a little bit big. It works, it is just a bit loose around the saddle flaps but I think on a dressage saddle it would fit beautifully.
This nail lacquer I thought was a really great idea to add. As someone who has their horse at a self board facility, hauling water and feed everyday, my nails and hands suffer. This nail lacquer is made of several types of oils and comes in a classic nail polish bottle. My personal bottle was scented as ‘Clean Laundry’ and it LITERALLY smelt like clean laundry.
I decided to use this on my nails and cuticles everyday for a week. My cuticles did start to recover and peel a bit less. I imagine with continuous use I would see a drastic improvement. I have become really into nail polish as of recently and would be really excited to try other colours and polishes by Leesha’s Lacquer. Anything cruelty free gets an automatic check in my books.
Print by Kasia Bukowska
If you haven’t take a look at Kasia Bukowska’s art, you need to. She is an amazing artist who uses a combination of vibrant and natural colours. Her horses are beautiful, anatomically correct and vibrant. They range in natural colours like browns and black to unique blues and purples. I do not own enough art, let alone horse art. Getting a print of something beautiful from a really amazing artist I thought was one of the coolest things to add to a subscription box.
UnBelts are all the rage right now. I have seen them at several commercial tack stores and discussed by many influencers on Instagram.
When I finally got my hands on one I was really intrigued. The packaging claims that this is the most comfortable belt you will ever own along with a really great warranty and customer service.
With the ability to customize the size completely, I can see why these are so popular. The belt is made from what I can describe as the same elastic you would see on the belly bands or leg straps of a horse blanket. The buckle is high quality and opens and closes easily. I do agree, this belt is easy to fit to your waist and is incredibly comfortable. I honestly forgot I was wearing it.
Stickers by IG @_digitaldoodles
Stickers are always fun, so I thought this was an awesome touch. I really loved how a small Instagram artist was included in this box. I feel that it gives inspiration to others that their work is beautiful and can be enjoyed by others. Who doesnt love stickers?
Add On Items
Equestrian Stockholm Headband
I love this headband. The knit design and close fit is perfect. It is lined with fleece to keep my ears warm, while making me look half decent on winter days. I cant say enough good things about it.
I wasn’t sure who made the bracelets, but I really liked them. The thing I can honestly say that is most important is you can make them fit small. I have very small wrists and can almost find nothing to fit them. It was a miracle that they go to my size. While I do think it should be noted the chains are delicate, it is great touch to wear with any outfit.
BipimBap Lip Balm
Oh & August (formerly known as BipimBap) has impressed with their products in the past, specifically their cleanser. With anticipation to try more products from this cosmetics line, this lip treatment did not disappoint. I have constantly chapped lips, it is an unfortunate down fall for being a mouth breather like myself. I make a conscious effort to use lip balm every time I drive. My lips have been soft and hydrated since using this product. This stuff works really well and is totally natural. Cannot go wrong!
BipimBap Face Mask
This Oh & August (formerly Bipimbap) face mask was something I decided to use late one night. I wasn’t wearing any makeup, wet my face and applied. It is very much a cherry product, as it had the scent of fresh cherries and had peel in the mix.
I applied the mask for 7 minutes as instructed and rinsed it off. My skin was very soft but also very red, but no irritation.
I went to bed and the next morning the redness had subsided. I really liked how this product was made of natural products, but if you have sensitive skin like me, maybe wait to use it before bed in case of possible redness.
Noel Asmar Tack Cleaning Cloth
I love how a Canadian product was used in this box. Noel Asmar Equestrian is such a good brand and to have a high quality piece I can use in everyday life is a bonus. This cloth worked well for cleaning my tack although I did find over time the black faded from the use of some leathers cleaners.
This Spring box was my first box and is by far my favorite so far. I loved the variety, I loved the #bossbabe support and the variety. Never did I suspect that I would be getting art, nail products and great clothes in the same box as a saddle cover and hoof conditioner. Just the fact I can give a pedicure to myself and my horse just really shouts out the thoughtfulness CEO Carly puts into the design of every box. These boxes are the highlight of my season. Whether I can use every piece right away or not, I always have something to look forward to.
If you haven’t signed up for Cavali Club, I would highly recommend you do so. You won’t be disappointed.
Always get back on,
