Cordell and Siara Hatch, who own Hatch Tack, live and work in southern Wyoming on the TA Ranch. Hatch Tack understands the importance of quality gear for working cowboys because they, themselves are working cowboys.

Savanna Simmons

My husband Boe built a tack room into an existing quonset on the ranch here, and he implemented a really neat revolving saddle wall that makes saddling multiple colts and horses so easy. It eliminates scraping saddles through tight doors, getting in each other’s way, and slinging saddles up on fences. It really helps keep […]

I was brushing our horses’ tails out after riding, getting pickers and brambles out, and I asked my husband Boe if I could braid his horse’s tail. Happy’s tail is a little flimsy, not too thick. I know Boe isn’t crazy about braids, but they really do make a horse’s tail longer and stronger. Horses […]

This is my public service announcement to those in the non-cowboy community: All chaps are “hinder”less. If they have a hinder in them, they’re just leather pants. Chaps=thumbs up. Leather pants=thumbs down. Also, they’re pronounced SHaps. So now that we have that out of the way, there are several types of chaps and other leggings, […]

Trailer Bedding Alternative

Lynn Kohr

I have never liked bedding my trailer with wood shavings. They blow all around in whatever trailer I have used them in. It doesn’t seem to matter how big the size of the actual flakes are. I worried about the shavings blowing around in their eyes and nose and being breathed in by my horses. Having […]

I took some time over the past couple of weeks to interview Dana Eklund from Big Sky Mohair Cinches about properly fitting a cinch. There have been countless articles written on this subject, but I think many of them miss the boat. Hopefully this one will help those muddy waters get clear, right quick! What […]
