Custom Tack Is A Big Hit

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.”

11 States In 33 Days On Horseback? No Problem!

We were excited to get this note from Lindsay, one of our loyal customers and a trail/endurance rider. Lindsay and her horse hit the road this summer with her parents and her husband. The trip took 33 days and spanned over 5,000 miles!

Mow and I travelled around the country this spring and were so thankful to have our Two Horse Tack bridle, reins, and breastcollar along for the journey.  We drove 5,674 miles and rode in 11 different states.  I had plenty of things to worry about on this long trip but my tack was definitely not one of them!  Rain or shine, heat or cold, this tack is amazing.  Mow never had a rub mark, the beta biothane is so easy to clean, and the super grip on the reins is extremely soft on my hands.  Thank you Two Horse Tack for helping make my adventure a success!”

Sounds like the vacation of a lifetime to us.

Lindsay is part of the Green Bean Endurance program, which is an online education and support community for endurance riders of all levels. As you can see below, Lindsay and Mow are kitted out in bright green beta biothane that’s from our special Green Bean line of tack. Our tack line is designed for endurance and trail riders, who need their gear to be light but strong and able to stand up to all types of weather. Check it out here.

We’ve been hinting at it for a while, and the big reveal is finally here–Two Horse Tack is proud to present our new product line in partnership with Green Bean Endurance! We worked with Green Bean’s top people to offer a special line of bridles, saddle pads, reins, and other accessories that are tough enough to stay with you through all those many, many miles. Of course, they come in a bright green base color, but with several of the Green Bean items, you can add your team’s accent colors.

A portion of proceeds from every purchase goes to support Green Bean Endurance. If you aren’t familiar with Green Bean and are new to endurance riding or considering trying it for the first time, check them out. Green Bean is a great way to meet follow riders, learn more about the sport, and cheer each other on as you build fitness with your horse.

Exciting news from Two Horse Tack and Green Bean Endurance!

Drumroll, please…

We are so very excited to announce a new partnership we’re beginning this year with Green Bean Endurance!

GBT Dk GreenIf you’re not familiar with Green Bean, it’s a group of volunteers who organize a sort of “competition within a competition” for newcomers to endurance riding. Green Bean’s goal is to help connect endurance newbies and encourage them in their goals as they begin the sport. Green Bean assigns point values to the competitions its riders are already in, and gives out awards based on those point values; they also help assemble interested riders into teams, where individual point values are averaged. If you’d rather not join a team, they will also track individual points (although the team option is the most popular). It’s a great way to have fun, meet fellow riders, and share resources, which is a big help if you and your horse are getting started in a new discipline.

One of the many things Green Bean Endurance does to keep things fun for its members is the occasional product giveaway, which is one of many areas that we realized we could help this great organization. We’ll also be designing a tack line specifically for Green Bean participants, which is pretty exciting! Look for more details on those items, the sale of which will benefit Green Bean Endurance, here on our blog or on our Facebook page.

In honor of this new partnership, we’ll be posting a series on endurance riding over the coming weeks, and will also point you to some great content on the Green Bean site for those interested in conditioning their horses, whether it’s for an endurance ride or for another equestrian sport.
