Best Selling Products

There are a few questions we always get asked! One of which is a question that is common across the board, from our retailers, to horse blanket laundries, to our customers. And as you probably guessed from the title of this post, that question is: “What are Your Best Sellers?”

This is a hard question to sometimes answer. Favorites change with the seasons, as well as personal opinions. Occasionally we get bombarded with an onslaught of orders from scents that are not some of our top selling products. However, I have compiled our top selling products, as well as what is most commonly ordered and re-ordered by our amazing retailers. You can also learn more about our top 3 products over on YouTube! So what are some of these top sellers…and why?

French Lavender Blanket Safe

RugSafe USA, llc and Blanket Safe French Lavender top selling Products

It is no surprise that all of our top selling washes, are our Original Washes. French Lavender Blanket Safe is top of the list, from our customers, to retailers, and even our horse blanket laundries. This Lavender is not overpowering, it provides a very light scent which fades quickly. Blanket Safe is very considerate to all the the animals, and our washes intentionally do not leave lingering scents. If you are looking for a light floral scent, that is fresh, clean, and relaxing, French Lavender Blanket Safe is the wash for you.

Free & Clear Blanket Safe

RugSafe USA, llc and Blanket Safe Free and Clear Wash, a top selling Blanket Safe Product

After being asked on numerous occasions to create a wash with the same awesome cleaning power, but no scents or dyes, this Free & Clear wash became almost an instant top seller. We have found that many equestrians and pet owners, are very concerned about dyes and scents for not only their animals but themselves. While all of our washes are considered “Sensitive” washes, and perfect for sensitive skin of animals and humans, alike; some individuals like the extra reassurance…and we can’t blame them!

Zesty Lemon Blanket Safe

Zesty Lemon by RugSafe USA, llc and Blanket Safe one of our top selling products

There is so much to say about this Zesty Juicy Lemon! Wow. One of my personal top favorites, this fresh, clean, light, perfect lemon scent (in my opinion), is not overwhelming or too chemically. This is a perfect summer lemon scent, that leaves a very light lemon scent on the item washed. Once again, keep in mind the scents should fade quickly and never be overwhelming, strong, or super fragrant once dry. This wash is what we consider to be perfect in every way, from the scent to the cleaning power. If you are looking for a summer fan favorite, Zesty Lemon is the wash for you!

Women in Equestrian Business- Melodie Weintraut

RugSafe USA, llc dba Blanket Safe features Melodie Weintraut Bays4DaysCrochet
Melodie Weintraut of Bays4DaysCrochet by RugSafe USA, llc dba Blanket Safe

I am so excited to feature this next amazing boss lady in our Women in Equestrian Business post. Melodie Weintraut, like myself is a mom, a girlfriend to her awesome husband and a professional adult amateur. She works her booty off as a professional poultry inspector, and has grown a successful and creative business, Bays4DaysCrochet. PHEW!

I met Melodie a few years ago. Outside of the business world; her positive, realistic, down-to-earth personality was a breath of fresh air! Now my horse is decked out in his gorgeous grey, black and bling bonnet. All of her products are made to order, to match your colors, your horse, and your style. Melodie has such a fun spunky style, this post is sure to relate to you, make you giggle, and/or make you scratch your head. Either way make sure to check her gorgeous pieces of work out at Bays4DaysCrochet, she wont disappoint!

About Bays4DaysCrochet

While Melodie waited to land her first “big girl job”; she taught her self to crochet (thanks to YouTube). She took that new found love of crocheting to make her own horse bonnet design. Melodie’s logo however was created by her husband. After a rough day at Grad School, he created this Tim Burton-esque picture of Quincy (her heart horse). After mastering her own pattern, she released Quincy to strut his stuff down the barn aisle…and if you’ve seen the bonnets Melodie creates, it is no wonder that barn friends now had bonnet envy! Melodie’s style is unique and her pattern and logo are 100% her own. She makes that entire bonnet without making a single cut (besides the final cut).

While Melodie claims she isn’t the “typical” people person; she can definitely strike up a connection with pretty much anyone who talks about animals. She loves talking to people who are designing their bonnet, discovering colors they love, what colors bring out the eyes of their chestnut mare, adding personalized ears, and grasping the ideas of what you as a horse owner, lover, and rider would dream of if you are to get a bonnet. However, it wasn’t all horses, unicorns and pink bonnets. Melodie noticed that other creators were pricing themselves very low. However, while Melodie’s prices would not be that low, her prices reflect the hand made work, dedication, and passion that she crochets into every inch of the bonnets she creates.

Melodie realizes that not everyone appreciates the justification of her reasoning, but she believes that while money doesn’t grow on trees, her time, quality and customization doesn’t either. In 5 years, Melodie would love to see some her teens/young adult audience sporting her bonnets at some major shows. “It would be so cool to hop on Facebook Groups, Eventing Nation, etc and seeing a pair going out, being successful, and wearing my product”. But before then, if her amazing bonnets can just continue to pay her monthly feed bill, she will continue to do a happy dance.

About Melodie Weintraut

Melodie, her family and her business are all based on Maryland’s beautiful Eastern Shore #madeinMD. She has always loved horses, however didn’t start riding until she was about 18, her Freshman year of college. Currently she is dancing around the sandbox with her OTTB, Hokie (yes….a good old VT Grad), and Pixie, her 11 year old Oldenburg pony. Along with her 2 equine friends, she raises rabbits, has 3 dogs and 2 cats! Melodie is totally a unique chick, not only is she down to earth, but she is also honest…to a fault. If you don’t want her honest opinion about your horse, don’s ask her for her thoughts #warning.

Let’s Get a Little Personal with Melodie Weintraut

What is something not everyone knows about you? Melodie applied to vet school 15 times, over the course of 3 admission cycles, Not once was she asked to sit for an interview.

What is something you would tell your younger self? “I’d tell myself not to worry so much about things. I used to have anxiety with my old horse, about things that hadn’t happened/things that never came to pass. Looking back, I should have just ridden the horse I had”. Other than that, she would also tell her younger self to not put up with bully trainers.

What mantra you live by? Don’t focusing so much on making a living, that you forget to make a life.

What is the last show you binge watched? “I don’t watch a whole lot of TV, but I am currently listening to Crime Junkie, and Up and Vanished podcasts.”

What is the last book you read? She’s not sure. “Other than baby books for my adorable daughter. Other than that, no clue.”

What is your favorite word? Tedious

What profession other than your own would you attempt for a week? A Veterinarian

What is your favorite food? Wawa Soft Pretzels and Pepsi

How do you take your Coffee? With a LOT of International Delight Creamer #butt-ton

What is something you want people to remember about your brand? There is a real human, mom boss, behind the bonnet that makes your horse looks amazing! Melodie is the only one, crocheting the body, tucking in the ends, sewing on that bling, and cutting out the ears and vinyl, and pressing it on. A real person is messaging you back and forth about time lines so you can get your bonnet in time for your big show.

In Conclusion with Melodie Weintraut of Bays4DaysCrochet

Melodie is no stranger to working hard, facing setbacks, and changing dreams; so she has become used to the idea that maybe the universe is trying to tell her something. Instead of making her dreams a possibility, she makes your bonnet dreams a possibility. She handcrafts and designs each one from scratch and Melodie puts her heart, her love, and her best wishes into each custom bonnet for your horse. Never once has she been afraid of failure, but faced it head on and made a decision to continue on. If you haven’t met Melodie, or seen her designs you are missing out. I can tell you from experience, when putting one of her bonnets on your horse, you will be proud; just like she is with each of her products she mails you with love.

We hope you join us next time for another look inside the life of another woman behind an amazing equestrian brand. Discover her dream and the adventure she has experienced. Until then, find more posts like this one, HERE.

Women in Equestrian Business – Carly Prosser

RugSafe USA, llc dba Blanket Safe features Carly Prosser of Cavali Club Box
Women in Equestrian Business Series Features Carly Prosser of Cavali Club

We are so excited to start out our series of “Women in Equestrian Business”, and we are leading off this series with a BANG! Most of you may not know Carly Prosser, but I hope you all know Cavali Club….and my goal is that you all feel like Carly’s besties by the end of this post.

We were fortunate enough to insta-meet Carly in Spring 2019, and this amazing lady blew us away. We are lucky to have her as a fellow equestrian colleague with her fun, outgoing, vivacious personality. But Carly Prosser is way more than just Cavali Club, and we are so excited that she has allowed us to snoop inside her life; and her likes, dislikes, and hidden secrets about herself and her business!

A Little About The Cavali Club

Carly Prosser hails from Atlanta Georgia, where her business is also based. She started Cavali Club after purchasing her first horse Rudy. Being completely underwhelmed by the brands available at the large equestrian retailers, she felt that a subscription box which incorporated many of the innovative brands she had been finding on Instagram would be amazing! However, she couldn’t find such a thing….so she started it herself! Carly helps brands to emerge in the equestrian community, and allows every day equestrians to discover brands they may not have known about. Cavali Club continues to successfully meet their business mission by “Introducing equestrians everywhere to their new favorite products, while lifting up our fellow equestrian businesses in the process”.

Cavali Club’s logo and brand are polished, yet relate-able. The name came about because of the Italian word for Horses and the idea of creating a community around the box itself. However, Carly faced one problem. There is a popular night club in Dubai named “Cavalli Club”, but typical Carly, she didn’t let that stand in the way. She figured dropping that extra “L” would make her unique and cool! Plus, for those that just can’t spell the awesome club’s name anyway…she get’s tagged in their posts! In 5 years she hopes to grow and increase diversity of the memberships within N. America. She would like to add customization’s to the subscription experience based on the discovery platform, and make it perfect for every equestrian, regardless of discipline or location. Eventually, Carly hopes to start testing the idea in the European market.

The business of Cavali Club has not always been so easy. Because the subscription has so many facets, it can be very logistically challenging. Because of juggling and balancing timelines, education, technology, and so many more problems, it hasn’t been an easy road. However, what was easy for Carly, was connecting with fellow equestrian businesses, and conveying the excitement of the concept of the box itself. She quickly realized that the excitement about her product was contagious.

A Little about Carly Prosser

Carly began in the equestrian world, as an equestrian herself. For as long as she can remember, she loved horses….and it may have all began during her first riding experience at a dude ranch in Montana when she was three. She never owned horses growing up, but as far as she can remember…has always loved horses! It wasn’t until Carly was in her 20’s that she could finally purchase her first of two amazing horses, Rudy. He is a 16 year old tb/Oldenburg cross, dressage horse. Then there is 3 year old Monty, the next dressage prospect. Carly however may have always loved horses, but didn’t start out in an equestrian business. She actually started her career at a digital marketing startup. In fact, she credit’s that job to making her savvy and scrappy when it comes to advertising, which has really been an instrumental skill in growing Cavali Club.

So let’s get a little personal with Carly!

What is something Not Everyone Knows about You? I’m a history nerd…I’m also obsessed with Ken Burns documentaries.

What would you tell your younger self? Relax. You’ll end up exactly where you want to be.

Do you have a mantra you live by? “If you don’t risk something, then you’ll never gain anything”

What is the last show you binge watched? “Ken Burns’ Country Music docu-series. …Did I mention I’m a nerd for his documentaries?”

What is the last book you read? Shoe Dog by Phil Knight

What is your favorite word? “YES!”

What profession other than your own would you attempt for a week? “I’d Like to shadow a commercial airline pilot, because I have so many questions! I don’t actually want to fly the plane, I just want to hang out in the cockpit and ask questions”

What is a food you could NOT live without? Sushi…or Japanese cuisine in general!

How do you like your Coffee? Two packets of stevia and vanilla soy milk.

What is something you want people to remember about you and your brand? Cavali Club is the go-to platform for how equestrians everywhere research and discover products for horse and rider.

In Conclusion with Carly Prosser of Cavali Club

We hope you have realized that Cavali Club is more than just an amazing box offering new, up and coming brands, and helping equestrians everywhere discover brands they have never laid their hands on! Cavali Club was discovered because of one brave woman’s tenacious equestrian journey. It wasn’t all easy, but it surely was all worth it. We hope that you can relate to this amazing woman behind the scenes, and that you got to experience a brief look inside her life.
