It's in the Bag Sponsor Spotlight: PonyUP! Kentucky Handbags


I have a special place in my heart for companies that help to raise money for animals. While most have it set up where 10-20% of their proceeds go to helping these animals, PonyUP! Kentucky donates 100% of their profits to horses in need. Pretty great, right?!

I was recently given the opportunity to browse the PonyUP! website and choose a handbag to review. Honestly, there are so many cute bags to choose from it was actually quite hard to decide, but I ended up going with the Giraffabulous Equestrian Hobo which has a really neat giraffe print.

As soon as the bag arrived I was in love. This unique, equestrian-style handbag features a horse-halter strap with a brass nameplate that can be personalized with either your name, the name of your favorite horse, or even your favorite saying (up to twenty characters). The uniqueness of the bag really makes it stand out in a crowd making it easy to share this amazing company with others.
I've had the Giraffabulous Equestrian Hobo for a little over a month now and it's really holding up great! The fabric is super durable and it really goes with anything. But best of all, the bag is roomy enough to hold all of my everyday essentials. My only complaint would be that it doesn't have very many interior pockets for organizing my phone, keys, etc... But it's still a great bag nonetheless.

You can purchase an Equestrian Hobo from PonyUP! Kentucky for $125... That may seem a little steep but you have to keep in mind that these handbags are handmade right here is the US and all profits are donated to retired and rescued horses in need.

Want your chance to win an Equestrian Hobo from PonyUP! Kentucky? Be sure to come back between November 5th and 18th for your chance to win one during the It's in the Bag giveaway hop!

Wow! I love it when companies step in and back a cause. It gets the word out and makes people more likely to spend. It's especially great that they are giving so much of their profits. Those bags are wonderful and really unique.

Gala said...

very nice and inique bags

rj7777 said...

I never knew they gave all their proceeds to horses in need. I want them to leave those wild horses alone. They should be allowed to be free and live their life. I keep hearing what they are planning on doing with them and I am so against bothering them. Thanks for the great review. It has been a while since I heard of these purses.

How awesome that 100% of the proceeds go right back into the charity. To have that coupled in with such a high quality product is a fabulous find. So many cute designs, too? Icing on the cake!

Melissa S said...

They are very nice bags, I read on their site that you can use the same strap on any of the bags. It really is unusual and wonderful that 100p% of the profits are used for their cause.
