PonyUP! Kentucky Handbags – Review + #Giveaway
PRODUCT NAME: PonyUP! Kentucky: equestrian fashion with purpose and passion.
ABOUT THE PRODUCT: (from site):
Our elegant, unique, high quality handbags are all proudly handmade in America. Proceeds from the sales of these handbags benefit retired and rescued horses in need. Everything ships for free—always. Satisfaction is guaranteed.
Rallie McAllister, MD, MPH, founded PonyUP! Kentucky to raise money for horse rescue operations. As Rallie searched for the perfect fundraising product, she was also searching for a handbag that reflected her love of horses and equestrian gear.
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.
For its first fundraising project, PonyUP! Kentucky donated 20 purses to Old Friends: A Kentucky Facility for Retired Thoroughbreds. The brass nameplates on these leather purse straps feature the names of some of the greatest retired Thoroughbred race horses, and all of the money from the sale of these 20 purses goes to support these and other horses at Old Friends. Rallie plans to make the donation to Old Friends and other horse rescue operations an annual tradition. In addition, at least 10 percent of all PonyUP! Kentucky profits will be donated to horse rescue operations.
Rallie McAllister, MD, MPH, is the founder of PonyUP! Kentucky, and she’s passionate about helping horses in need. 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.
Rallie practices medicine at the SelfRefind clinics, which are dedicated to treating people suffering from the disease of opioid addiction. Rallie is the author of several books, including Riding for Life: A Horsewoman’s Guide to Lifetime Health and Fitness (Eclipse Press) and Private Access: Behind the Gates of America’s Premier Horse Farms and Ranches (Red Sky Publishing). Along with her friend and business partner, Jennifer Bright Reich, Rallie is the coauthor of the Mommy MD Guides series of books.
I love this Giveaway! Paying it forward!
