Mommy MD Guides-Recommended Product Review/Giveaway: PonyUP! Kentucky Handbags

The Diaper Bag Alternative!
by Mommy MD Guides reviewer Jennifer Bright Reich

Even when my sons were babies, I wasn’t a froofy, pastel-diaper-bag­-carrying kind of person. I usually used a backpack-style diaper bag. Another benefit to that was my husband didn’t object to carrying it every now and then. But still as my sons got older and I didn’t need to be such a Sherpa, I was looking forward to ditching the diaper bag.

Pre-baby days, I carried a handbag that was just large enough for my organizer and keys. Realistically, I knew there was no going back to that. I’ve grown too accustomed to always having wipes for sticky fingers, a stash of plastic silverware and straws, and hand sanitizer. All of my small handbags are upstairs in a closet that my husband calls the “purse graveyard.” Maybe someday when my kids are out of the house, I can carry them again.

In the meantime, I found the perfect diaper bag alternative: PonyUP! Kentucky Equestrian Hobos! This handbag is the perfect size to carry what I need for myself and also for my kids. It comfortably holds my organizer, cell phone pouch, keys, wipes container, baggie of silverware and straws, and hand sanitizer. I can even fit in a book and/or my camera! It has several pockets, which help me to keep track of small items such as a mini first aid kit.

One of my favorite features is the strap is made from a leather horse halter! Unlike many handbags, the strap stays put on my shoulder; it’s not constantly sliding down my arm. Each strap comes with a brass nameplate, on which the folks at PonyUP! Kentucky will engrave whatever you wish, such as your name or the name of your horse. I bought handbags for my mom and sister and because they don’t have horses, I had the names of their cats engraved! The straps are interchangeable, and the handbags are so affordable I have five handbags that I mix and match with my one strap! I have several that match with blue (my favorite color), one that matches with brown, and one that matches with black.

Because I feel strongly that my hard-earned money go for good whenever possible, I love that PonyUP1 Kentucky donates 100 percent of their profits to help horses in need. To date, they’ve donated more than $10,000 to help organizations across the country that rescue and rehabilitate horses.

I also love that all PonyUP! Kentucky handbags are handmade in the United States. They are sewn by a seamstress in Lexington, Kentucky, and the straps are made by Amish folks in Crab Orchard, Kentucky.

Enter here for a chance to win PonyUP! Kentucky equestrian hobo handbag of your choice through the end of September.
