Endurance riders have long been fans of Two Horse Tack because our beta biothane products are super lightweight and waterproof. Jamie over at the Green to 100 blog recently reviewed one of our two-color breastcollars, and she pointed out that another reason she loves Two Horse is the affordable price of our tack:
“As I was looking at breastplates they are expensive. This one I was slightly skeptical of because it was half the price of the other one I was considering. I ended up with both and I liked this one better and sent the other back. It was heavier and a little wider and thicker.”
Thanks, Jamie! Glad you loved it. Read the full review at Green to 100 here.

With the hot weather steaming up time in the saddle, who couldn’t use a little help keeping a grip on their reins?
That’s why we offer a Super Grip overlay on our beta biothane reins. Karen over at the Patently Bay blog recently reviewed our Super Grip reins and was pleasantly surprised at how well they held up in hot and misty weather.
What impressed me about the super grip material? It never gets slippery. Really. The first two times I used these reins, it was misting and/or sprinkling and the reins got wet (with the rest of my tack). I figured they’d slip through my hands since I didn’t even have gloves on but nope!
You have your choice of brown, black, or orange Super Grip added to any set of reins for just $5 extra. Five dollars isn’t much for the added safety and convenience this material gives.

…for Two Horse Tack, which Lazarus demonstrates. Lazarus is a draft horse who was rescued from a kill pen auction in New Jersey and is now loved by his person, Heidi.
Lazarus is wearing our blue sidepull bitless bridle, which starts at just $55 in our online shop (a flat price, whether you order a draft, a mini, or a regular horse size). The sidepull is one of two bitless bridles we offer; the other is the 2-in-1, which can be converted to either a crossunder style or a sidepull. Learn more about bitless styles here.
For a variety of reasons, horses sometimes develop ear- or head-shyness. Whether it’s a prior bad experience or a lingering medical issue, this behavioral tick can make bridling a real challenge.
Olivia ended up with a horse who had a problem with ear shyness and while they worked together to improve his anxiety, she was still happy to discover our mule bridle can be taken on and off without pulling the headstall over the ears. The headstall clips onto the cheekpiece on the left side of the horse’s head, minimizing ear contact.
Olivia was also happy about how low-maintenance the beta biothane mule bridle is.
“I know leather aficionados are cringing, but there are really a lot of advantages to Beta Biothane tack. The main advantage to my mind is the durability and ease of care. I love soft and supple leather too, don’t get me wrong. And I do enjoy cleaning my leather tack and having it transform. But, I am a lazy person at heart. And Beta Biothane? You can wash it in the dishwasher.”

No matter how long you’ve been riding, we can all use a little extra stability in the saddle. That’s why our English and Western breastcollars have the option to add an over-wither strap. This gives you a great base of support should your horse slip or perform an ‘unscheduled gravity check.’
All our beta biothane breastcollars are water-proof and sweat-proof, so just need a quick trip under the hose to come clean.
Breastcollars start at just $40!
Congratulations to Kelsey and Lynx, who won our June tack giveaway for a set of beta biothane stirrup leathers!
We asked Kelsey to tell us a little about her and her horse…
“My name is Kelsey, I’m an elementary music teacher, and my horse’s name is Lynx. He is an 8-year-old Quarter Horse. We enjoy trail riding around the area where we live. Also we love y’all’s halter-bridle! He has had one for several years and it has held up wonderfully!”
Our July tack giveaway is now live. This month, we’re giving away a black English style neoprene saddle pad. This Trooper-style pad is no-slip and no-fuss, just like our tack! Just rinse with water to clean.
