Curb straps — what are they for, anyway?
One of the best stocking stuffers on our website is probably our curb strap (just $8, by the way). But just what are these used for?
The curb strap runs underneath the horse’s chin between the shanks of a bit and is used to keep the bit steady in the mouth and help control use of the leverage action of the shanks.
Our friends at Motoring Down The Trails blog recently added a curb strap after switching bits and write that it was easy to adjust to their horse’s specific needs.

Attention, Cyber Monday shoppers!
Happy Cyber Monday, everybody!
In celebration of the Christmas shopping season, we’ve lowered our order minimum to get free shipping. From now through Christmas, orders $50 and up ship free, no coupon code required!
That’s a couple of turnout halters, or a pair of Western headstalls.
For those of you procrastinators out there, here are the final order cut-offs to guarantee Christmas delivery:
International, Australia: Dec. 6
International, Europe/Canada: Dec. 8
Domestic, rush order only: Dec. 22
‘Finally, a company that doesn’t outsource!’
SammyJo recently picked up a full browband Western bridle from our shop (which, at just $25, make a great Christmas gift!) and was kind enough to send us this note–
Thank YOU, SammyJo! We’ll be happy to help you and your horse whenever we can.
From trailer to trail with just a few snaps!
We were happy to hear from Sarah and her horse Paige, who recently reviewed our quick change halter bridle. The traditional halter bridle allows you to swap between halter and bridle with just a couple snaps.
Our traditional halter bridle is great for trail riders because it helps them go from trailer to trail, but Sarah and Paige reminded us its versatility is also great during the trail ride itself.
I’m enjoying the halter aspect of the bridle for other reasons though. Twice now when on our trail rides we’ve had to dismount and hand walk because of the terrain. Both times I unhooked my reins from the bit and attached them to the halter lest I accidentally drag on her mouth.
