Barn Dog Apparel Giveaway!

I love t-shirts. Like, a lot. Especially if they’re horse related and witty. Make a shirt that causes me to smile and I’ll buy it, guaranteed (as evidenced by the abundance of them in my closet). There’s no such thing as too many t-shirts, right?

So when I got a text message like this:


Well… I had to have it.

And yes that text is from my Trainer. She’s a smartass. I mean… she’s 100% correct in her assessment, but still: smartass. Either way, I’ll be wearing this shirt for basically every jump lesson forever. It’s like a built in pre-warning.


Turns out it’s made by a new company called Barn Dog Apparel, and they have more than one cute design. While I was perusing their shop I also had to grab the 24/365 shirt, because nothing is more true than that.


Barn Dog is set up through Teespring, which I have a little bit of experience with from the Presto shirt campaign. The shirts are basically printed in batches and shipped as they’re printed, so I got one of mine a day before the other, about a week after I ordered. The “Distance” one is the women’s V neck, which I like the fit of. I got the medium and I would say it’s pretty true to women’s sizing – not super tight like the shirts that seem to come in more of a juniors sizing, but still fitted.

The 24/365 is the “premium tee” which is a fitted crew neck. Again I’d say it’s pretty true to women’s sizing (also got a M in this one and it fits about the same… and through some googling I did find a handy sizing guide with pictures!), and the material is a bit thicker than the V neck. I wore this one to work one day and a couple people got a good chuckle over it. The SO mostly just went “isn’t THAT the truth” and gave me the patented Crazy Horse Girl eyeroll that I’ve seen a few thousand times by now.

I’m about to go back and order a few more things in sticker form, because I’m always open to more stickers on my tack trunk, and there are a few in particular that are applicable to me.



Or applicable to Henry. Ahem.


Honestly I wish this one said mimosas. Or cupcakes. I’m just not a coffee drinker, but it’s cute.


I am told that they have more breed-specific horse and dog shirts on the way too!

  1. oh please let me know when you order your stickers, i tried to get the distance one in a sticker and the Eventing medication (2 of them) for friends and they didn’t get enough orders i guess so they were cancelled.
    My tshirt is shipping and in fact should be here if not today then early next week. I got the Inspirational Quotes one. That made me laugh hard.


    1. me too which is why i bought it 🙂 The thing is it is hard to choose. there are some great ones (Thank goodness i dont own a mare (or a Henry who acts like a mare) so those are easy to cross off.
      Great gift ideas though for sure!! Love it. I still want the Distant one as a sticker to put on my trailer. cause i live it…every damn day….

      1. Totally. I’m riding a horse called Duke this summer and he looooooves the long spot. Loves. It. So that’s fun, because if I don’t see the distance and ride to it, we’re taking a flyer. I think my trainer is going to have a heart attack.


  2. I like the Brain one, since mine is definitely set for life in “horse” mode… 😉 I would order it in the V-neck style, though, since I have too few of those and it looks super-cute!


  3. Not getting great distances is what keeps me (mentally) from jumping bigger fences, so I’d choose that tank in coral.


  4. Wish I had an ounce of self control, cause I could have used that 10% off after you posted your shirt on insta the other day. I went ahead and ordered it in a T and a tank top… Seriously, zero self control. Thanks so much for the fun giveaway opportunity!
    Should I win this giveaway, I would probably go for the coffee one.


  5. Amazing designs! I love these 🙂 My favorite is the Distance one though. I cracked up when I saw it online. I’m psyched you said stickers though, I never would have thought to look for them. I need a few of these for my trunk.

    1. Yeah I don’t really know what the minimums are for stickers to get printed, but it’s worth a shot! I might order a few and give some as gifts (and I hope it meets the minimum in the process).


  6. I love the distance shirt, but I don’t currently jump, so I’ll probably hold off on that one. I do like the tell a gelding, ask a mare shirt, as well as the coffee one


  7. I’m dying, these are hilarious!! My favorite would totally have to be the coffee one, anyone who knows me knows that I always have an iced coffee in one hand. It’s the key to happiness, and also the key to me not murdering everyone within a 100 ft radius of me if it’s earlier than 11am.


  8. The distance shirt is my eternal struggle. Also, love the corgi one, would be so happy if they created a great dane or mastiff one similar to that *hint hint* 😉


  9. They ship to NZ! Hurrah! +1 on wearing the distance tee to lessons. Sadly in my case the words are not satire, but truth. At least the instructor might be able to adjust their expectations accordingly as I come in the gate.


  10. I can’t lie, I LOVE the distance shirt… but also that last one is written about me. HOW TO CHOOSE?!
