Congratulations to Tango!
Congratulations to Tango, the winner of our most recent tack giveaway! Tango has won a Color Combo Convert-a-Bridle from our online shop. This ¾-inch beta biothane bridle is perfect for pleasure or trail riding in style, and can even convert into a Western bridle with the removal of the one-piece noseband, which threads through the browband. It’s a great option for trail or distance riders, especially since it just needs a bath in soapy water to clean.
Tango is an 18-year-old off-track Thoroughbred who has already had several professions since leaving the track–he has had some dressage and eventing experience, and his person Melissa has made the rounds at U.S. Dressage Federation, U.S. Pony Club, and U.S. Eventing shows. Both of them recently discovered however, that they’re happiest when they hit the trails for endurance rides.
Tango and Melissa completed their first Limited Distance ride at No Frills this past April, and are proud members of the American Endurance Ride Conference. They’ve already found a community among endurance riders.
“I have already hit some bumps– the dressage saddle that fit his high withers stopped working in February [and several AERC folks who barely know me came to the rescue with saddles and pad on loan]” said Melissa.
Melissa is an avid reader of the Endurance Granny/Green Bean Endurance blog that we promote here from time to time. Jacke, the Endurance Granny herself, works with us to do exclusive product giveaways from time to time, and we love reading up on her most recent adventures in the endurance world.
Melissa said she’s looking forward to switching from her old leather bridle to a new purple and silver beta biothane bridle from Two Horse Tack. We are pretty sure they biothane, which washes clear with soap and water, will be a lot less fuss than the leather she’s been dealing with on those long, sweaty rides.
