Our journey towards making equine tack...
My interest in horses began a guided beach riding business close to my family's cabin on the Oregon coast. I eventually became a guide and lived and worked with the owners for several years. The experience I had there was invaluable, and it must have been there that an appreciation for synthetic (nylon and polypropylene) tack developed. Part of our job was to clean, and make safe repairs to tack that was exposed to tough conditions... Later, riding a big quarter horse / draft cross, I couldn't find long enough roping reins for my extended trail rides, so bought a roll of material and started making my own. My reins caught on in the tack section, and I have enjoyed making custom reins for many years since. I enjoy the resurgence in Natural Horseman principals and the materials they use in their reins and lead ropes.
While I am primarily a trail rider, I use product testers from around the country to give me reports on how the reins are working for their particular riding professions. I prefer my handmade reins to have replaceable and removable (not spliced in!) snaps. It just makes sense to be able to change out snaps or conway buckles - even the most durable snaps can break, and there's no use to throw away good reins because there is no way to replace the hardware. I enjoy creating Natural Horsemanship related tack that will last, is comfortable for you and your horse, and is great looking!
We are also dealers for Weaver Leather, Auburn Leather Company, Columbia Basin Knot Co., Ozark Saddle King and others. We will, from time to time, offer old store memoribilia, fishing tackle, and odds and ends from our thirty two years of accumulation.
