Leo the Saddlebred gets just the right fit

We were excited to work with Kaity at The Repurposed Saddlebred blog for a review of our English breastcollar.

One of Kaity’s favorite parts of the ordering process was getting the right sizing for her Saddlebred, Leo. We have a lot of size options — way more than most tack companies, and have the ability to customize a fit for a particular horse or breed.

“Sizing was the first issue of concern.  Normally, Leo goes in cob-sized gear, but a quick e-mail to Jacke led to the discovery that their cob-sized items are for, well, cobs; my narrow, gangly horse was probably not going to fit well in something that was intended for a horse that’s built like a small tank (and I mean that as a compliment – cobs are awesome!).  Luckily, Two Horse Tack offers an option for that – the Arab size – and despite Leo’s lack of a dished face, a brief e-mail exchange with Jacke was enough to determine that the Arab size was likely our best option.”

Congratulations to Jennifer and Mags!

Congratulations to Jennifer and Mags, winners of our April tack giveaway for a two-color English breastcollar! We asked Jennifer to tell us a little about herself and her journey with her Arabian, Mags:

“I have an 18 year old gelding Arabian named Mags short for Magnanimous. We are trail riding together and he is wonderful!! I work in a very stressful position at work as an Administrative Assistant for a major pharmaceutical company and Mags has a wonderful way of making my stress just disappear. We have only been together 3 months, but he has changed my life for the better. 

The breast collar you informed me that I won is exactly what I have been looking for! Your products look amazing! I am so excited!!”
We’re excited to see how Mags and Jennifer like their breastcollar, especially since we offer special sizing for Arabians.

A new month has begun, and that means we’ve got a new tack giveaway! In June, we’ll give away an English breastcollar which is colorful enough for the schooling ring and rugged enough for the trails.

If you haven’t already read our blog post about the usefulness of breastcollars, you may not know that not only do they keep your saddle from slipping or sliding back, they’re also a great stabilizer. Ever have a moment where you find yourself grasping for mane? Our English breastcollars come standard with a grab strap that runs over the withers, which can be a great solution for those “Oh, crap” episodes.

No purchase necessary to enter the giveaway–just fill out the form here. You’ll get a $5 off coupon for your next purchase whether you win or not. Win/win!
