Be My Valentine…forever

Roses, candlelit meals, the knee drop….we all know that the real key to true love involves a horse!

It didn’t work for me, but I’m not complaining, baked beans on toast and a good war film clinched the deal for us, but if you have made your mind up that he or she is THE ONE and need some help making the ultimate marriage proposal, then read on…


Valentine cooler

We’ve teamed up with Horseware to offer one hopeful romantic the chance of winning this stunning bespoke 6’6″ Rambo Cooler that will guarantee you won’t fluff your lines (however we can’t promise that you won’t still experience sweaty palms waiting for the answer!) and we can even help you with the prep.

Picture the scene…your darling hopefully-soon-to-be-intended is fast asleep next to you. You creep out to the stable and with some top tips from Horseware, you change the 3rd person in your relationship’s rug. It is very important at this stage that you remove all traces of Eau de Neigh and creep back to bed.

When the alarm clock goes off, you pretend to be asleep until they are out of the room and heading out to stables to see their true love who by now is thinking ‘where the heck is my breakfast?!’

Creep down behind them, sensible shoes at the ready to spy on the activity – and wait for the penny to drop – there’s no going back now!
