As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Uncle Jimmy recorded a song just for us about his unique product - Click here to take a listen.

You can imagine how hard it is to write copy for a product with a name like this!  We don't want to offend, but at the same time we think it's really funny.  So we'll stick to the facts. 

After winning an Innovation Award at a recent trade show, we knew that Uncle Jimmy was getting serious about selling treat balls. The design and concept of hanging balls is revolutionary. Horses love these, plain and simple.  They're made out of sweet feed specially processed to stick together and last a long time.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great Idea, Needs Refining I thought this would be the perfect boredom-breaker for my horse, who lives outside in a pipe corral. At first she didn't know what to do with it--I had hung it from the top of a second gate we don't use. So I moved it. But I moved it too close, and she finished it off in less than a day. I hung another one by a shorter chain. She grabbed it in her teeth and pulled it completely off the string, as she did the second one. I'll try one more, and if the same thing happens, I'll experiment with something else. It might work with other horses but it didn't with mine. I would still recommend it, though.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Won't last long Asides from the sticky mess it creates, it won't last very long. It's very messy and I found myself scrubbing from his coat all that sticky mess. My horse will eat just about anything and loves all that's sweet. So he destroyed this ball in less than 2 hours. I was hoping it would last longer, but that was not the case. I'll have to buy another stall toys to keep him busy and away from destroying my water and grain buckets. For the price I think there's better options. It's a good reward treat though.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Idea I bought this for my young green mouthy horse to have something to do in the stall. She was interested in it for a few minutes then went back to just enjoying a basic salt block. She is not a picky eater at all. I even put it right next to a wall so it would be easier for her but she was not in to it. I wish she would have liked it! Side note: Do not leave it in the sun or it will get all gross..

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tasty diversion Positive peer pressure pushed me into purchasing this product for my pony (how’s that for alliteration?). Many owners in my barn had either purchased or received these sweet-feed packed horse treats as holiday gifts and extolled their virtues and their caveats; I’ll do the same, as being forewarned is forearmed! As far as taste, my TB seemed to have quite an appetite for the treat, but not distractingly so. He would leave it to eat his meals, nap, etc., so I would not be the reviewer to say he “was obsessed” with the product, but he did undoubtedly enjoy it! It took him just over a fortnight to consume the entire product BUT I did hang it in his stall AS INSTRUCTED by the manufacturer. I not only followed Uncle Jimmy’s directions but learned from my barn mates the pitfalls of allowing your horse to pin the product against a wall or other surface which allows the horses’ teeth to find steady purchase, thus allowing him/her to consume the entire product in one standing. As other reviewers have stated, I did find bits of grain stuck in odd places on my horses’ face (and ears and throatlatch and crest and poll- you get the idea), but nothing a damp, hot towel couldn’t remove. I would purchase this product again, and recommend you give it a try. Buy a screw-eye with it (https://www.smartpakequine.com/screw-eye-2041p), find some baling twine and hang it from the ceiling but at your horses’ eye-height, keep it away from the stall walls and let your horse give it a go. And try not to get it stuck to your own head when you're mucking out!

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
