Product Review: View Halloo’s Equestrian Competition Journal
I stumbled upon the View Halloo Equestrian Competition Journal by chance. View Halloo was a featured Instagram account in a giveaway I had entered. It was one of those like a bunch of accounts and be entered contests. At first I thought nothing of it until View Halloo’s journal came by my feed.
Anyone that knows me knows there’s two things I love; paper products and planning. I love being organized. I love gathering information and putting it all together with one little bow. I had to get my hands on this journal.
Fast forward a few weeks and my journal came yesterday in the mail. I rushed home as fast as I could to dive into the journal. Unboxing it was the most fun I had had all week.
It came very well packaged and safe. I must say founder Rebecca thinks of everything when she was putting together this journal and she doesn’t ship it cheaply. It comes in a heavy wrapped paper envelope that’s lined and then the journal is wrapped up in a nice, orange tissue paper and sealed and taped.
Opening it up, the first thing I noticed was the beautiful cover. I got the black with silver with my name on it and it came absolutely perfect. When you pick up this journal, it screams quality. Opening up the pages, you can tell Rebecca knew what she was doing. The pages are heavy and smooth and great to write on. It’s some of the most quality paper I’ve felt in a while.
The journal is peppered with beautiful watercolor pictures and includes references to View Halloo which is a foxhunting call meaning something is worth chasing. I love this motto for goal setting!
Leafing through the journal, she thought of everything. The journal has spaces for your registration information, insurance, blanket inventory, horse care, training, goals, shows, travel schedules, etc. It’s truly built for a competing equestrian to keep everything organized.
The journal is very beefy. It’s not a small journal! You get a lot of value for your money ($75 without your name on front or $90 with.) I’ve already started going through it and filling out all of Jim’s information, some of which I had to go into my filing box for! It’s nice to have all of the information all together. I hope I don’t fill out the training pages too quickly though. I might do weekly summaries instead of daily rides since I ride Jim about 4-5x a week. That might save me some real estate!
Overall, I absolutely adore the journal and recommend it for anyone that’s like me and has a busy equestrian life. It’s great for keeping track of all of your horse’s information, show schedules, training, equipment and other important information.
