Pony Up Kentucky is a fantastic company of horse lovers!
It is one thing to simply be a horse lover, and quite another to donate 100% of your profits to retired and rescued horses in need!
That is true Kentucky Horse love!!
Pony Up Kentucky works out of Lexington KY. Each handbag is completely crafted in the USA. The fabric choices and handbag patterns are exclusive to Pony Up. Creative and practical, the straps on the bags are made from genuine leather horse halters with brass fittings. How creative is that! Utilizing horse tack for part of a gorgeous hand bag.
Each strap also has a name plate you can have personalized with your horses's name, farm name, etc. Mine says Pony Up on it as will the giveaway bag. What a unique idea to use horse halters for straps, a super connectedness to the horses you are helping.
Meet Rallie, founder of Pony Up!
One day as Rallie was carrying a leather halter slung over her shoulder on the way to the pasture to get her horses, she thought, “Wouldn’t this be a great shoulder strap for a handbag?”
Rallie searched for a purse featuring a horse-halter strap and came up empty. That’s when she decided to design a unique, equestrian-style handbag that she and other horse women would love. After a year of perfecting the design and building a team of skilled craftspeople, the PonyUP! Kentucky line of handbags was created.
A lifelong equestrian, Rallie was raised on Thirteen Oaks Arabians in the Appalachian mountains of Tennessee. She trained and showed horses for more than a decade before starting medical school. Rallie now lives on a small farm in Lexington, Kentucky, with her husband, children, and retired horses."
From reading past blog posts you all know how passionate I am about companies giving back, and this is just another beautiful example of using ones skills and talents to form a company with a product line that beautifully can give back. Horses are such a part of Kentucky, that is seems the perfect combination of love of horses and caring for those who are getting along in age.
Pony Up Kentucky! has several sizes and styles in bags. Equestrian Hobo bag comes with the halter strap and plenty of room for all of your daily travel needs.
If you desire a bit small bag there is the petite hobo bag, simply a smaller version of the Equestrian.
Because these are all handmade, there is limited quantities of each bag. I love the individuality of the Pony Up Kentucky bag. Once you purchase a bag with the leather strap, you can then purchase another bag without the strap and interchange the strap from one bag to the other. They easily come off and attach on any other bag from Pony Up. What a way to reuse the halter, and have a variety of bags for all seasons.
I just love my Pony Up Kentucky! bag, makes me feel fully immersed in KY!
