Recently I attended a horse expo with my Counter-Canter Culture bag in tow (yes, that one to the left), and a teen called out across the plaza, “I love your bag!” I was immediately elated, and then I got to thinking, “What is about how a well-chosen equestrian tote that makes such a statement?”

Sometimes it’s the great image or unique tagline that sets it apart, but these days certain bags carry an even more desirable distinction.  They demonstrate that their user is committed to recycle, reuse, and generally make the world a more beautiful place for humans and, more importantly, the horses!

So let’s make a statement by investing in creative, reasonably priced, horse-themed totes that tout equestrians’ commitment to preserving the environment for one and all!  The following six tote styles will set you on your way to doing just that.

From plastic duraweave upcycled horse feed bags, to modern reusable totes to die for and timeless English and Western shopping bags, there’s an eco-friendly option for every equestrian.  As you will see, even some of the retailers are getting in the game.   Make one (or more!) your own today and start making your own statement!
