One of Kaity’s favorite parts of the ordering process was getting the right sizing for her Saddlebred, Leo. We have a lot of size options — way more than most tack companies, and have the ability to customize a fit for a particular horse or breed.
“Sizing was the first issue of concern. Normally, Leo goes in cob-sized gear, but a quick e-mail to Jacke led to the discovery that their cob-sized items are for, well, cobs; my narrow, gangly horse was probably not going to fit well in something that was intended for a horse that’s built like a small tank (and I mean that as a compliment – cobs are awesome!). Luckily, Two Horse Tack offers an option for that – the Arab size – and despite Leo’s lack of a dished face, a brief e-mail exchange with Jacke was enough to determine that the Arab size was likely our best option.”
Like many of us, Ashley has spent afternoons here and there throwing a halter and leadrope on her horse and going for a short ride. Of course, you can’t necessarily spend every day in the ring that way. This led her to wonder whether a bitless bridle might be right for her two horses.
As she writes in The North Carolina Cowgirl Blog, Ashley found it was a great fit for her horse Gracie and was pleased with the quality of our 2-in-1 bridle with bling.
“Whether you ride English or Western, Two Horse Tack’s bitless bridle is a great piece of tack and I would recommend it. It’s good quality for the price and functions well. If your horse is like mine, then I’m sure he/she would love to be ridden without a bit every once in a while. 😉”
We customize each of our products for a customers by hardware, color, and style, but we can do other variations, too.
Kirrily over at The Other Horse blog is an endurance rider who wanted to find a way to make one of our bridles as light as possible for her horse. She asked us to do a halter bridle with no browband and in the narrowest possible width, and we were happy to construct something just for her.
“This bridle is lighter weight than previous halter bridles that I’ve owned. The construction seems strong and solid without being bulky. The stitching is all tight and uniform. The stainless steel hardware and beta biothane are good quality and should last a really long time.”
This week, we sent out our first shipment of items to our first group of Two Horse Tack Ambassadors! We’re really excited about this new program, which we hope will spread the word about our products to riders of all disciplines. Our Ambassadors get one item of their choice (excluding harnesses), as well as a special coupon code to share with their friends. In exchange, they post photos and reviews of our products to their social media followers.
We’re taking ambassadors on a rolling basis, so apply today!

We were happy to receive a glowing review from Gayle over at the Nuzzling Muzzles blog. Gayle recently reviewed our Western headstall with bling aboard her Quarter Horse, Rock. Gayle writes that she often struggles to find standard-sized bridles with throatlatches that will fit Rock because he has a somewhat larger cheek than other horses of his bridle size. We have a greater range of available sizes to fit different breeds and body types of horses, and make all our tack to order, so we’re equipped to accommodate horses with unique fitting needs.
Gayle was also happy wth the easy maintenance of beta biothane:
“As far as cleaning goes, they say that soap and water should do the trick, but you can also run this tack through your washing machine inside a laundry bag or pillowcase, or on the top rack of your dishwasher with no dry cycle.”
If you’re a trail rider yourself, or a horse person who also loves dogs, check out Nuzzling Muzzles. Gayle takes you inside her journey with her crew of four-legged friends.
We were psyched to get this note from Jackie and her horse, Mr. Big!
Mr. Big is actually a 16.3 hh Tennessee Walker, who’s retired from showing and becoming a great trail horse. I didn’t have any bridle big enough for his head! so I found you through a Google web search of “purple bridle.” I get a lot of compliments and some question the strength of this bridle, but so far it’s great. We run into a lot of mud right now and sweat just as much, and the reins and breaststrap get really dirty. It’s really easy to clean. I love this type of saddle blanket for the same reason, so easy to clean between uses. I’m really happy and of course, the color looks great on Mr Big!
Congratulations to Jennifer and Mags, winners of our April tack giveaway for a two-color English breastcollar! We asked Jennifer to tell us a little about herself and her journey with her Arabian, Mags:
Susan and her OTTB (off-track Thoroughbred), Knight, recently reviewed our buckle nose halter over on their blog, Saddle Seeks Horse. Susan told us she loves the durability and easy-clean care of their new buckle nose halter, but most of all she appreciates that we have a special section of our shop dedicated to selling items from photo shoots for the benefit of local horse rescues.
“Do you wish your tack and dog gear were machine washable with flashy custom colors, and supported Thoroughbred aftercare charities? Well, thanks to Two Horse Tack in Lexington, Kentucky and the properties of Beta Biothane you can enjoy halters, bridles, reins, dog collars, leashes and more in brilliant hues that require minimal care and help out adoptable horses.”
