On this #ThrowbackThursday, we’re taking a look back to last summer, when we sponsored the Two Horse Tango, a competitive mounted orienteering ride we sponsored in Central Kentucky.
Our course took us through Versailles State Park, the site of 26 miles of trail and some fascinating Civil War history.
Read an account of the Two Horse Tango CMO from Jacke Reynolds, our friend over at the Endurance Granny blog.
Lots of the tack we sell is beta biothane, which we think is a wonderful material. But it’s easy to forget sometimes that we also make great quality leather tack at a good price. The Ride The Pony blog recently reviewed our leather English bridle, and we were so happy she loved it as much as we do!
“When I was unpacking the bridle I noticed right away it was made from high quality leather and was very thick and heavy. I personally like my bridles to have some heaviness to them, so this bridle was a 10/10 for material.”
Get your own English bridle in leather for just $30 here.

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.

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