We were happy to support a recent contest from Green Bean Endurance to help outfit new endurance riders.
Grow Your Green Bean Garden
The required gardening “chores” to qualify for the drawing based on division:
Bean Sprouting (On the Vine)
Garden chores: Obtain a mentor, volunteer a full day at a ride, and complete a ride of 25+ miles.
Bean Blooming (Picked)
Garden chores: Obtain a mentor, volunteer a full day at a ride, and complete back to back LD’s on the same horse or a ride of 50+ miles.
Bean Epic (Cooked)
Garden chores: Obtain a mentor, volunteer a full day at a ride, and complete four 50’s on the same horse this season or a ride of 75+ miles.
All riders finishing their chores (1 for each division) were entered into a random drawing for a tack set from Two Horse Tack: Bridle (western, or halter style), reins, and breast collar. Color combo of choice. To keep, or to share with a bean in need.
We loved this interview with Ricky Stone of Green Bean Endurance on Horses In The Morning earlier this summer! (And we’re not just saying that because he gave us a shoutout at the 54 minute mark.)
If you’re not familiar with Green Bean, it’s a great in-road for first time endurance riders. You can get tips and guidelines for training for endurance, access to a community of newbies and veterans, and exclusive coupon codes to help you get outfitted for the sport.
We offer an exclusive line of products for Green Beans, constructed with the endurance horse in mind (and much of it green, of course). Check it out.
We got this fantastic note from Jacke Reynolds of Green Bean Endurance about one of our youngest customers, Rowyn, who just got a pony bridle as part of our giveaways with Green Bean. We work closely with Green Bean to meet the needs of upcoming endurance riders, and even designed a line of tack specifically for them. Green Bean is a group designed to educate and assist new endurance riders:
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.
