Congratulations to Suzette and Daisy Mae!

The winner of our most recent tack giveaway looks fantastic sporting her new Western bridle. Meet Daisy Mae, a three and a half-year-old Paint mare who’s just beginning her education with owner Suzette.

“Daisy thinks she is a puppy dog,” Suzette says. “She will follow people around hoping for treats and pats. If she feels like she is not getting enough attention, she will paw at the backyard fence until the dogs go out the doggie door and bark at her.”

We’re happy to outfit Daisy Mae and Suzette for the next step of their journey together.

Our Western headstalls are simple but strong, hand-stitched and available in your choice of colors and bling options for the traditional and the bold.

Wondering how you can score a Western bridle of your own? Enter our January giveaway here.

White tack can be hard to find, but we’ve got you covered

You can now Shop By Color on our website, which allows you to browse by any of our bright base shades of beta biothane. White tack is especially popular in our shop and can be difficult to find.

Clock’s ticking on Christmas shopping!

If you’re still Christmas shopping, make sure to get your order placed by noon on Friday!

It’s wine o’clock…

Our wine or burgundy-colored tack is among our most popular, and it looks great on any colored horse. Shop wine tack now.

Can you make this in a different width?

“Can your Picnic Bridles be custom made?  I just bought a horse that has old scars on his nose from a halter when he was young.  I would like to find a way to cover those scars so they are not so noticeable.  I’ve always used halter bridle combos of some kind.  I really like your picnic bridle and wondered if I could get the nose piece made from 1” beta biothane and the rest of the bridle made with the ¾” material?  Can the nose piece be adjusted up and down on the nose so I can get it in just the right spot?”

We often get questions about whether a given piece can be made wider or narrower than the standard width to solve a problem like this one.

The good news is we can offer our products in three different widths: 5/8″, 3/4″, and 1″ widths. We have standard widths for each item based on the size of horse we expect to be wearing the item, but you are free to request any of them be swapped out. Just put your request in the Order Notes.

We do not have beta biothane in 1 1/2″ widths, however.

Grow the Green Bean Garden Challenge

We were happy to support a recent contest from Green Bean Endurance to help outfit new endurance riders.

Three winners (one from each division) were drawn from the list of qualifiers.

The Challenge:

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.

 
The prize?  

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.

No matter what equine sport you participate in, it’s so important to get new riders involved whenever you can. The Green Beans are a mentoring/educational group where newcomers to endurance riding can meet veterans. Endurance riders love our gear because it’s waterproof and super light; it’s become so popular with Green Beans, we introduced a line of products for them.

If you’ve got a colorful horse, he deserves colorful tack–even tack that matches him! Sandy sent us these great photos of the two-color Western bridle she ordered during our Autumn Sale!

 –What have you and your horse been up to this summer–preparing for a show, hitting the trails, trying a new sport?

Strutter and I have been doing a lot of trail miles this summer! We’ve done five 25-mile competitions so far, and we just completed our first 50 of the season this weekend. We’ve been doing a lot of conditioning and working extra hard to prepare for more 50s and maybe even a 75 later in the season. And, of course, we’ve been having lots of fun!

 

–How did you first meet Baxter?

I first met Strutter in July of 2015. I was looking for a way to get into distance riding, and I got in touch with my now-mentor and Strutter’s owner by looking at my local distance riding group’s website. She had five horses at the time, and Strutter was meant to be her husband’s but he doesn’t ride much anymore. Strutter needed a job, I needed a horse, and the rest is history!

What’s your favorite part of your Baxter’s personality?

My favorite thing about Strutter is his work ethic. He can be very silly and quirky, but when we get to a competition and get out on trail, he is all business. Our personalities are very similar, and I think that’s why we get along so well.

What do you like about the Two Horse gear you got as part of the program?

The real question is what DON’T I like about Two Horse Tack gear? It’s sturdy, easy to clean, completely customizable, and comes in any color I want!
