Although most of our business at Two Horse Tack is, as the name implies, for horses, we’re happy to outfit dogs, too. After all, most of the horsey folks we know also have a pup or two “helping coach” them through lessons or “scouting the terrain” during trail rides.
We didn’t just want to add on a line of dog products as an afterthought, though–we wanted to make collars and leashes that would actually solve problems for dog owners. Happily, the qualities that make beta biothane a great material for tack (it’s fade-proof and water-proof) make it awesome for dogs. Beta is gentle on skin and doesn’t hold onto smell or bacteria the way other materials can.
Two years ago,when she competed at our National Obedience Finals in Waco, Texas, she WON the championship in her division, which came with an embroidered chair and pretty hand tooled leather leash. Unfortunately for me, I’m allergic to the chemicals in the leather (my hands break out like I’ve been handling poison ivy!) – so we can’t really use that pretty trophy leash. Seeing the Texas Concho collar gave me a wonderful idea for a new way to celebrate my own dog’s National Championship, without having to risk touching leather – using the color that best matches her big rosette, AND those Texas star conchos we saw EVERYPLACE during the event.”
Thanks for writing, Patricia! We’re glad your Champion loves Two Horse collars as much as we do.
