Congratulations to Chincoo!

It’s not often that we, as central Kentuckians, encounter Chincoteague ponies, so we were excited to meet Chincoo, the winner of our latest tack giveaway.

Chincoo the Chincoteague Pony

Chincoo the Chincoteague Pony

Chincoo is a 14.2-hand 4-year-old mare who lives with Jennifer. Jennifer is still in the early stages of training with Chincoo, and is hoping the mare can get her back in the saddle after a few years away. She’s also hoping Chincoo can get her three children into riding.

One of the things that has held Chincoo and Jennifer back is a struggle to find tack that fits. Chincoteague ponies vary in height and build, and can sometimes have a heavier, almost drafty build. Others are more petite but might be taller than the average pony with the same head size.

Fortunately, Chincoo and Jennifer will have a custom halter bridle with snap-on browband headed their way. Since we make all of our pieces to order, it’s easy for us to change the proportions to fit a horse. The best way to get a custom fit when you order with us is to leave the height, age, breed, and approximate weight of your horse in the order notes.

Chincoo will enjoy versatility in his quick-change halter bridle, which easily converts between the two pieces–a great option for trail horses or a quick bareback ride around the pasture. Best of all, our beta halter bridles are maintenance-free: just rinse the sweat off after a ride and you’re done.

Our next tack giveaway will be for an English or Western breastcollar. Win a $10 off coupon on your next order just for entering.
