We’ll help you get a grip…on your reins.

“Without question, the super grip is my favorite part of these reins. With and without gloves in dry and wet conditions, it lives up to it’s namesake and provides superior grip. When you’ve got a horse like Q who tends to lean into the bridle and go heavily on the forehand as her first and most favorite evasion, having a secure grip is critical!”

Everyone loves our super grip reins — the perfect mix of color and safety.

Liz Stout at the In Omnia Paratus blog recently reviewed our reins with super grip overlay. Check out the rest of her thoughts here.

Our synthetic will surprise you

Lots of people have never seen synthetic tack before — or their only interaction with it has left them thinking of it as stiff, rough, and well..plastic-feeling.

A recent review at the Ponytude blog came from just such a rider, who admitted she was initially skeptical of beta biothane…until her halter came in the mail.

My first impressions were, “Wow it’s BRIGHT” and “It’s so soft!”

If you like color, this tack is for you. The “dark blue” I’d requested is more of a SUPER BRIGHT royal shade, and it’s awesome. Unlike colored nylon halters, it also won’t fade, which is a bonus! The beta biothane is also incredibly soft and flexible.

Our turnout halters are made to withstand all sorts of weather, and a New England winter is par for the course. Beta biothane turnouts won’t freeze or stiffen in cold weather, and don’t fade in the sun. Pick up yours here.

Two buckles for maximum adjustability

The Equestrian Journey blog recently reviewed our Buckle Nose Safety Halter, which is a great option for green horses or first-time horse folks. It also gives an extra spot to adjust for perfect fit!

“I LOVE how adjustable this halter is!  It has the buckle on the nose obviously, but it also has the throatlatch clip and buckles on both sides of the crownpiece. It is the most adjustable halter I’ve ever used.  I was pleasantly surprised that it has the throatlatch clip because that is a required feature in all of my halters.”

Who doesn’t love a mini foal?

Nicole over at the blog Equinpilot has teamed up with Two Horse Tack for a really cool giveaway. A foal by her stallion Roscoe is expected in the next few weeks, and Nicole is running a pool to see who can guess the baby’s arrival date and gender! Winner gets their choice of a custom Two Horse Tack bridle/halter/reins/stirrup leathers. How cool is that?

That is going to be one adorable baby!

‘I’m all about functionality, efficiency, and comfort’

We were happy to read this great review from Grace and Quest over on The Horseback Artist blog. Grace tried out our Quick Change Halter Bridle in a striking orange/purple combination, and she loved it!

The majority of my riding is done out on the trails for hours at a time, so I’m all about functionality, efficiency, and comfort. The Quick Change Halter Bridle offers a lot of functionality since the halter and snap-on headstall can be used separately or together in a variety of configurations.

We were also interested to hear the beta biothane was gentle on Grace’s hands, which is great because she sometimes battles eczema and has found other rein materials can irritate her skin. Glad we could make the ride comfy for you and Quest!

Congratulations to Theresa and Breezy!

As we’ve continued our fantastic relationship with the Endurance Granny Blog, we offer giveaways exclusive to their readership from time to time. That’s why we’re pleased to congratulate Theresa and Breezy for their win of the October contest for a Western breastcollar!

Theresa and Breezy contest winnersBreezy, age 16, was a broodmare for six years before Teresa purchased her and decided to give endurance riding a try.

“Now she has a new job and loves it!” Theresa told us.

Theresa and Breezy’s first endurance ride together will be the Gold Rush Shuffle on November 29.

It’s great to hear about horses who can switch vocations at the drop of a hat–especially when they have to wait for us humans to catch up. A lot of our customers are adult amateur riders just like Theresa, and we try to make their lives as fuss-free as possible by providing quality tack at a reasonable price and without the fuss of upkeep that you face with traditional leather.

Happy trails, Theresa and Breezy! We’ll be thinking about you on November 29 (and hoping that the area hosting your ride is nice and warm that time of year).

Don’t forget to check back to the Endurance Granny blog for more insight into the world of endurance riding, and keep your eyes peeled for the occasional exclusive giveaway.
