Congratulations to Heather and Fiona, who are the winners of our October tack giveaway!
Fiona is a 10-year-old pinto Spotted Draft x Arabian cross mare, and Heather is her human. Heather hails from northern Maryland and is currently a veterinary technician. Together, the two have dabbled in a variety of disciplines, from dressage to trail riding, and beyond. Heather has competed in driving, dressage, and Western disciplines.
We know they’ll love our reflective split ear Western bridle, which will be made to their size and color specifications. All our items with reflective Day-Glo overlays become especially popular this time of year as the days get shorter and more folks are riding in low light.
In the month of November, we’ll be giving away a camouflage Western breastcollar. This breastcollar will help keep your saddle in place, which is great from a safety perspective, and also gives you a great spot to hang on in the event of ‘unexpected turbulence’ during your ride. Our camo breastcollar comes in 3/4-inch width beta biothane in your choice of 14 colors with green, pink, or orange camo. It’s fully adjustable at the shoulder and belly straps to ensure a great fit.
It’s time for another tack giveaway, and just in time for the end of summer, we’re giving away a quick-change halter bridle!
The quick-change style allows you to go from trailer to trail in just a few seconds. It’s also kind of a three-in-one because you get a halter, Western headstall, and English bridle all in one. The version we’re giving away also comes with reflective Day-Glo to keep you and your horse visible and safe even in low light–important as the days get shorter.
The bridles with reflective overlays are just as durable and waterproof as our plain beta biothane pieces, and won’t fade or crack after exposure to sun, rain, or sweat.
The winner of our giveaway will get to choose the size of the bridle that works for their horse in a range from mini to draft. Like all our pieces, we can customize the size for tough-to-fit horses. See our sizing guide here.

We got this photo of search and rescue team horse Peso, modeling one of our reflective bridle and breastcollar. Peso and his person Vicky are part of DELMARVA, a search and rescue team that helps folks in Delware, Maryland, and Virginia, as well as other Mid-Atlantic states if requested. Search and rescue teams can help out in all kinds of emergencies, and mounted teams have a particular advantage in that they can traverse mountainous areas where vehicles can’t reach. As trail riders ourselves, we really appreciate the work of DELMARVA and others like them so we love getting orders from teams like this to help them stay visible and accessible on the job.

…in order to handle our Day-Glo reflective tack. We snapped this picture of Sue, chief Two Horse model, at night with her reflective English bridle. Pretty bright, huh?
We’re big advocates of safety, no matter what type of riding you do, and in the summers when people are out riding later into the day, we think having reflectors is extremely important.
