When competitors started appearing at the 2008 and 2012 Olympics wearing bright kinesiology tape–colored, stretchy tape in unique patterns–the equine world took notice as well. Today, as the sight of elite horses competing or […]

Maria Tussing

A few items in your barn or tack room can make life a little simpler, tidier and can help you be more prepared for whatever your horse kicks at you. Trash can and/or recycling containers– You’re more likely to actually throw something away if you don’t have to remind yourself to do it when you’re […]


Barn or Tack Room Makeover: Part 1 — clean it up

February 9, 2017
Maria Tussing

The barn or tack room can sometimes feel like the place where old tack goes to die and be eaten by mice, rather than the place you keep your expensive, performance-enhancing tack and equipment. Who doesn’t love to walk into the tack room and shove aside dusty, hay-covered halters that haven’t been on a horse […]

This week, we cover some important information regarding what’s in your horse’s feed.

Skye Mesa Ogilvie is the creative hand behind Cielo Cinches, located in Hot Springs, South Dakota. (Cielo is Spanish for sky.)

Buckaroo Buys: The Colorful Cowgirl

October 15, 2016
Savanna Simmons

I am a collector of all things beautiful. I generally don’t care for trade-show bits or manufactured saddles. Ok, ok, I’m a bit of a snob. But we don’t have endless amounts of tack like this, just an occasional larger purchase for anniversaries, birthdays, or Christmas. Or a must-have once in a while when we see something and […]
