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.

Go From The Trailer To The Trail!

It’s a new month, which means it’s time for a new tack giveaway over on the Two Horse Tack website. In April, you’ll have the chance to win a single-color beta biothane halter bridle.

Springtime means more trail rides. Many trail riders, whether recreational riders or professionals, want tack that’s light, comfortable, and versatile for their explorations through field and stream. That’s why we designed our traditional halter bridle with snap-on bit hangers. You can switch from halter back at the trailer to bridle in just a few seconds. When you’re using the tack as a bridle, you still have an O-ring below the horse’s chin (as you would on a turnout halter), which means you can lead or tie without having to change gear.

1Like all our beta products, the traditional halter bridle comes in sizes mini horse to draft and in your choice of 14 colors. Don’t forget, you can also pick up a pair of matching (or contrasting) beta reins to go with our halter bridles.

What’s that? Our leadline attachments

Ever look around at your tack room and think ‘I wonder if I can use bailing twine to make that bridle do what I want it to’? We’ve probably all been there. In our case, we realized that sometimes riders using English bridles might need to lead their horses without clipping a rope or line onto the bit–especially out on the trail, or heading to or from a ride. While we love our halter bridles for this reason, we get that the need to switch back and forth is not as great for some as others. That’s why we sell a leadline attachment.

This handy little piece can convert any English bridle into a halter when needed–just thread the loop through the throatlatch of your bridle, and buckle the metal ring into the noseband. Ropes can clip onto the metal ring, just as they would on a halter, without yanking on the horse’s face.bb0cf6fcf6c885512184376693d629e5
