“Can your Picnic Bridles be custom made? I just bought a horse that has old scars on his nose from a halter when he was young. I would like to find a way to cover those scars so they are not so noticeable. I’ve always used halter bridle combos of some kind. I really like your picnic bridle and wondered if I could get the nose piece made from 1” beta biothane and the rest of the bridle made with the ¾” material? Can the nose piece be adjusted up and down on the nose so I can get it in just the right spot?”
We often get questions about whether a given piece can be made wider or narrower than the standard width to solve a problem like this one.
The good news is we can offer our products in three different widths: 5/8″, 3/4″, and 1″ widths. We have standard widths for each item based on the size of horse we expect to be wearing the item, but you are free to request any of them be swapped out. Just put your request in the Order Notes.
We do not have beta biothane in 1 1/2″ widths, however.
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.
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.”
Congratulations to Raven, the winner of our most recent tack giveaway for a grooming halter!
Raven is a 9-year-old Arab mare who has lived with her person Patti for two years. Patti and Raven enjoy trail riding and gymkhana events (including barrels and poles). Raven’s favorite thing is cantering–she thinks it’s even better than treats! Patti and Raven are still working through Raven’s fear of putting her toes in water on the trail. Other than wanting to keep her pedicure intact, Raven is very brave on the trails. She loves being the center of attention so it’s only fitting that she’ll soon get to model her custom halter.
Is your horse a bit of a diva? Get her (or him) a custom halter of their own for those upcoming spring grooming sessions here.
Love our monthly tack giveaways? We’ve just made them a little sweeter.
Our shop has so many different color combinations of each item, and we want to help customers experience all of them. From now on, we’ll feature one of the varieties of the item up for giveaway–this week, it’s a traditional halter bridle in a two-color combination variety. Any two colors you want! There are dozens of possible options. Explore them!
Also, we know that sometimes you fall in love with a giveaway item and you’d rather not wait to see if you win it. We totally understand! That’s why we’re offering $10 off the giveaway item in our shop for the duration of the giveaway.
We’re very pleased to present our first promotional video! We wanted to give folks who may not have visited our online tack shop an idea of what we’re all about.
Take a look and let us know what you think!
If you’re like us, you may get a little…preoccupied…around the holidays. The horses need feeding, the hay loft needs stocking, the kitchen floor is a mess. Before you know it, it’s almost the week before Christmas.
Oh. It IS the week before Christmas.
We are able to priority ship custom tack orders in time for Christmas up until 8 a.m. Dec. 21. After that, rush shipping will get your order to you up until 8 a.m. on the 23rd. (In case you, like us, read ‘rush’ as ‘mortgage-the-house,’ most beta bridles, halters, and breastcollars ship rush status for $18 and larger orders with more than one piece are about $36). Currently, we’re offering a free upgrade to rush shipping from now until the 21st to be sure everything gets to you in plenty of time!
For this weekend only, call to place your order over the phone until 11 p.m. EST each day–859-338-4265. We’ll work with you to make sure your stuff gets to the right place at the right time.
Still not sure what to get, or sure you’ll miss the deadline? Gift certificates make the perfect present–the recipient can choose the exact size and color that looks best on their horse, and you don’t have to worry about waiting for the postman.
