Congratulations to Ayrk!
We recently completed a tack giveaway for Behind the Bit, which is a fantastic source for dressage riders to find event coverage, product reviews, and horsey fun of all sorts.
We gave away a two-tone English bridle, which is made from 3/4-inch beta with a 1/2-inch overlay. Our range of colors allows customers to be as bold or as traditional as they want; our winners decided to do a black base with a purple overlay–a nice mix of the conventional and the colorful!
The winners of the giveaway are Gemma and Ayrk. Ayrk is an 18-year-old Norwegian Fjord. The Norwegian Fjord is closely related to the Przewalski’s horse, and as you can see it’s known for its distinctive coloring and “rocker boy” mane. The Norwegian Fjord is a descendant of Mongolian wild horses and is considered an endangered breed.
Ayrk and Gemma have been working together for four years. They came together through a friend of Gemma’s riding instructor, and are currently learning about dressage. They also jump from time to time, as well. Ayrk is a huge fan of fruit–strawberries and tangerines being a particular favorite. We’ve heard of horses eating bananas and of course apples, but tangerines are a new one for us.
Enjoy your bridle, Ayrk and Gemma!
