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.
See the rest of Sarah’s review at her blog, A Soft Spot For Stars.
If you’ve got a colorful horse, he deserves colorful tack–even tack that matches him! Sandy sent us these great photos of the two-color Western bridle she ordered during our Autumn Sale!
In many ways, reins are the most important pieces of safety equipment you have. That’s why it’s important they both be 1) strong and 2) unlikely to slip through your fingers.
Ashley at the Go Pony blog recently reviewed our riding reins with Super Grip overlay, and we’re happy to say she found them as tough as we do.
If you’re a competitive trail or endurance rider, take a peek at the Go Pony blog. Ashley has done it all in the equine world – Western, English, and now endurance with her two ponies, Mimi and Liberty.
“The super-grip is really comfortable, and the grip is pony-tested — this is the only thing I can use on her that won’t rub blisters on my fingers.
Like all beta, it is ridiculously easy to take care of — wipe down, spray, or dunk in a bucket, and let drip dry.
Overall, I found them to be a very solid option, and very budget-friendly. Turnaround time was incredibly fast; the reins were shipped out the next day after I ordered them.”

We think bling can bring sparkle to any horse, but we were especially pleased to see how good this bling Western bridle set looked on Rock, one of the subjects over at the Nuzzling Muzzles blog.
With that blaze, Rock is a very striking fellow, and we think the blue bling on white tack makes him stand out even more — but the beta biothane is practical for him, too.
“I have no doubt that the breast collar is comfortable for him. It beats the hot and heavy lamb’s wool and synthetic breast collar I’ve had for years. When I moved from a cold climate to a hot one, I swapped out my thick sweaters for lightweight sleeveless blouses. I should probably do the same for my horses.”

No one likes ordering a red halter, only to see it eventually fade to pink. That’s why we make a point of advertising that beta biothane is fadeproof, an we were happy to hear Stephanie at the Hand Gallop blog had noticed that about the turnout halter she reviewed.
“I’ve been using the halter on Candy for about a month, and it couldn’t be better. It hangs outside on the fence all day while she’s turned out in the front pasture and the color is just as bright as it was straight out of the box.”

Meet Carley and her rescue horse, Blue. They’ve been testing out our Western bridle with silver spots this summer.
What have you and your horse been up to this summer–preparing for a show, hitting the trails, trying a new sport?
Me and Little Blue having been training to compete in North Carolina’s State Fair on October. Also we have been working on barrel racing and dressage.
We loved this interview with Ricky Stone of Green Bean Endurance on Horses In The Morning earlier this summer! (And we’re not just saying that because he gave us a shoutout at the 54 minute mark.)
If you’re not familiar with Green Bean, it’s a great in-road for first time endurance riders. You can get tips and guidelines for training for endurance, access to a community of newbies and veterans, and exclusive coupon codes to help you get outfitted for the sport.
We offer an exclusive line of products for Green Beans, constructed with the endurance horse in mind (and much of it green, of course). Check it out.
Endurance riders tell us often that they love our equipment because it’s both lightweight and easy to clean. We were happy to get this review from the Green to 100 blog:
“I haven’t had the need to clean it aside from a quick wipe but I love biothane for super easy cleaning and except my saddle I do everything I can in biothane. It doesn’t break (at least I’ve never yet for me) and if I get behind on wiping or rinsing I toss it in the dishwasher. It comes out shiny and new.”

But you know, it’s not just endurance or trail riders who benefit from waterproof gear. No one likes to spend their time in the barn aisle, scrubbing and buffing with a sponge on a Saturday night. Breastcollars tend to get more sweaty than just about any other piece of tack, so why not pick up a beta breastcollar for hacks around the farm or riding lessons, even if you’re not prepping for an endurance race?
This holiday weekend, get a breastcollar for less – you can have $5 off an order of $50 or more with code 5off50.
