Ceramic Fabric Therapy for Horses

After having performance horses for quite a few years, I thought I’d heard of most of the different forms of equine therapy out there, but this one was new to me!  The following is a guest post written by Kat Chrysostom, the owner/designer of BENEFab™, a company which makes ceramic fabric therapy products for humans and […]

Bitless Bridle by Two Horse Tack: Product Review

Not too long ago, I wrote a blog post on why I made the switch to bitless with my horses.  And honestly, I haven’t looked back—every horse I have can be ridden safely without a bit.

Tulsa–A Barefoot Barrel Horse
