I’m still testing out and adding new products to Bel Joeor Metier, my equestrian-themed Etsy shop.
Right now, I’m at a tiny bit of an impasse. I have three ideas for new products to develop and test next, and I want your opinion on which of them I should prioritize.
#1 is a modification to my existing saddle covers: adding ripstop water-resistant nylon fabric to the exterior, and swapping out the interior fleece for flannel instead. They wouldn’t be “ride all day in the rain” waterproof, but they would be a stylish way to cover a saddle, and if I can figure out the stirrups modification, you could conceivably ride in them in the rain for a short period of time. They’d probably end up retailing around $30 for the straight cover, and $35-$40 for the version with stirrup holes.
They might look a little bit like this, only in lots of colors.
#2 is a small but useful thing: bucket covers. These would be made out of ripstop nylon in a variety of colors, with customization (a monogram, a logo, or a particular design) possible. They’d probably end up retailing around $12.50.
#3 is a half-lanyard keychain. These would come with standard embroidered designs for a variety of disciplines, or they’d be personalized with monogram, name, etc. They’d probably end up retailing around $10.
This design, but not this ugly.
So, internet, which one should I tackle first?
