Schneiders Bonus Bucks Loyalty Program

Did you know?

When you make a purchase at sstack.com or call your order in over the phone you are automatically enrolled in our Frequent Buyer Bonus Bucks program!

That means…

Every purchase you make from us accumulates Bonus Buck points.
If you purchase from us at a show, be sure to save your receipts. We’ll ask you to mail us the original receipts to redeem your points.

$1 = 1 point

(Excluding tax and freight.)
Once you accumulate 500 points, we’ll mail you a $20 Bonus Buck (we mail these quarterly).
That’s equivalent to 4% back! You can use your Bonus Bucks towards anything we carry!

You can also use multiple Schneiders Bonus Bucks at the same time!

Bonus Bucks cannot be used in conjunction with a gift certificate.

Happy shopping!

Schneiders Catalog from 1974

As we enter May, many of you have already received our Summer Sale 2012 catalog in the mail. One of my favorite things to do while planning for next season’s catalog is to look back at where we’ve been. It is amazing to see how much has changed and, more astounding, how much has stayed the same. Check out this scan from our 1974 catalog! (Click for full size.)

Schneiders Catalog 1974

Many of these items we still carry today and their design has hardly changed. It is interesting to note that the images of these products are sketches as opposed to photographs! (I’m glad that I don’t have to sketch 100+ pages of products. Our catalog in 1974 was only 34 pages so sketching was practical.)

Here are the current versions of several products featured in our 1974 catalog!

New Innovation – Slow Feeder Saver

How often do you find wasted hay strewn around your horse’s stall or blown away in the turnout arena? Does your horse dunk their hay and leave the leftovers in their water buckets? If you’re frustrated by your horse wasting their feed, the Slow Feeder Saver is your solution.

Slow Feeder Saver

Slow Feeder Saver

The Slow Feeder Saver is made of durable molded plastic with a removable steel feeding grate. It is large enough to hold an entire day’s worth of feed and puts your horse in a natural grazing position. It slows down the rate of feeding and therefore dramatically reduces the risk of colic. The hole at the bottom makes for easy cleaning. It has a 3 year limited warranty.

Does Your Helmet Fit Correctly?

Helmet Fit by Schneiders

A helmet is only as safe as it fits. A good helmet fit is essential when riding. Follow these simple steps to ensure that your new helmet is effective in the event of a fall.

Step-By-Step to a Great Fit

1. To properly size your helmet, measure the circumference of your head by placing a measuring tape around your head and roughly one inch above the eyebrow. Different helmet manufacturers have different sizing, so consult the size chart for the particular helmet that you are purchasing. Also consider how you will wear your hair in your helmet. If you are planning on wearing your hair up inside the helmet, allow room for this when choosing a size.

2. When you receive the helmet, place it on your head without fastening the harness. If applicable, adjust the dial on the back of the helmet.

3. Make sure the brim is resting no more than one inch above your eyebrows. Gently try to move the brim up and down. If your eyebrows move, your helmet fits correctly from front to back.

4. Next, shake your head side to side, to the left and to the right. The helmet should remain in place.

If either of these tests result in movement, you will want to drop down a size. If the helmet seems to be “perched” on top of your head, you will want to consider moving up a size.

Replacing Your Damaged Helmet

If you fall and your helmet takes an impact, contact the manufacturer to have it inspected. The material inside is designed to absorb impact – once this has happened, the effectiveness of the helmet is compromised. Many helmet manufacturers will replace a helmet that has suffered an impact for less than retail if within several years from the original purchase date.

Helmet Safety Certifications (ASTM and SEI)

On most equestrian helmets, excluding hunt caps that are designed as traditional apparel rather than for safety, you will see ASTM (American Society of Testing and Materials) and SEI (Safety Equipment Institute) certifications. Most equestrian competitions require that helmets be approved by these associations to be show legal. Many equestrian helmet vendors, like Troxel or GPA, only manufacture helmets that meet these criteria. Always confirm these certifications, both to ensure that the helmet has undergone testing for safety and that the helmet is show legal.

Finding the Right Helmet for You

Equestrian helmets come in many different styles to suit many different applications. A helmet you will be trail riding in will look much different than one you would show in. Most people can use one helmet for both. Helmets suitable for show, however, tend to be more expensive. English hunt seat riders prefer “skunk” style helmets, such as GPA’s like this one, or velvet covered helmets like this one from IRH. Many trail riders prefer helmets like this one from Troxel because of increased ventilation for summer rides. Asking your trainer is a great first step when deciding which helmet style is right for you. Your local tack shop may also be able to help.

We hope this information has been helpful to you! Be sure to check out sstack.com for our wide selection of riding helmets, tack and apparel.

2. EquiSilver products
“EquiSilver is another all natural product that kills bacteria and fungus on contact. The silver instantly alleviates pain. Results are very quick and healing time is sped up considerably. I also use it on my little Schnauzer because it clears up hot spots on dogs as well. I actually used it on myself a couple weeks ago when I put a nail through my finger and it didn’t even hurt the next day, so I know first-hand that it works.”

 

Vetericyn Hydrogel

3. Vetericyn™ Hydrogel
“Vetericyn is a great all around product that is safe to use around the eyes, nose and mouth. It kills bacteria including antibiotic-resistant MRSA. The thicker gel formula stays in contact with the wound.”
