Hey guys! My names Svea, I'm currently an eighteen year old English show jumper. I've been riding since I was 2 and started Jumpers during my sophomore year of high school.
As a 17 year old back then, I was financially responsible to pay for everything by myself except: food, supplements and vet bills. During that year I had recently bought a new horse, Lenny, which required a lot of new tack. Since I was a teenager, I was still in a high school, only working 10 hours a week and with many other horsey costs that needed paying. Tack has always been an extremely expensive investment and it was taking me ages to pay for everything I needed. Until, I found SoCali Equestrian. I started following SoCali after some very gorgeous browbands caught my eye on Instagram. I was like "there is no way they're this inexpensive and good quality"
I messaged SoCali on Instagram, I talked to a few of the sponsored riders they had and after a few days I ended up getting a browband. This was one of the most inexpensive products they had and I wanted to test out the quality before making any larger purchases. To my shock, the quality was FANTASTIC! The stitching was beautiful, the gems were gorgeous, the leather was soft and flexible. It also contained amazing padding for the horse. To say I was impressed was a bit of an understatement. I ended up becoming apart of their sponsorship team, and I couldn't have asked for a better team to be apart of. I ended up saving a good bit of money and purchasing a costumed made belly guard girth for Lenny. For anyone who follows my Instagram: @jumping_through_hoops, you know how badly Lenny flicks those hooves upwards for maximum scope. This girth, was EVERYTHING. It made a HUGE difference in the way Lenny rode, the way he jumped, and it was the best investment I ever made. The stitching was beautiful, the leather was top quality, and the fluffiness was perfect to help with Lennys extremely sensitive skin. The fluffy part of the girth is also velcro, which is awesome because I can wash it clean with no huge effort and allow it to air dry. After Lenny had a few rides in this girth he began to really show off that front end of his, which made for fabulous show photos.
SoCali became a big difference in my riding journey. It allowed me to purchase affordable and high quality tack in half the amount of time it would've taken me to purchase from any other company. It also came with pretty quick shipping. I'd honestly chose SoCali tack over any other tack shops' featured products or even some of the fanciest brands out there. Not only does this company have great products but the costumer service is over the top. I ordered a black gem'd dog collar and leash about a year ago, and I did have some gems fall out of the collar. I dm'd SoCali about it and not only was the dog collar replaced with a new one, I was also given a leash replacement(even though nothing was wrong with my leash). My replacements were not only more expensive but they allowed me to choose from the custom products. To make my leash and collar more personalized to me. This all was towards no cost of my own and arrived within a week and a half.
I will always speak very highly of this company and so will all the friends I have that have bought products from here. Over the years I've ended up owning polo wraps, 3 browbands, two belly guard girths, two dog leashes and one collar. My friends own bridles, browbands and other products from SoCali as well. Many of my followers on Instagram have also gotten tack from this company. Each person dming me and explaining how much they love their products and how amazing the costumer service, fast shipping, quality and pricing is.
