Bitless Bridle could be the answer to your problems

The Dr. Cook Bitless Bridle was developed after years of research.

The design allows gentle, effective control with pressure that is distributed evenly around the horse's head.

Sometimes when you just can't find a bit that works, trying Dr. Cook Bitless Bridle could be the answer to your problems.

Bitless1Going Bitless, no matter what discipline you are in (English or Western) even or a short period of time can be like hitting the refresh button on your computer.

It is also great to have a Bitless Bridle on hand for situations such as being to ride after having your horse's dental work done, or on long trail rides where they can graze and drink without the nuisance of having a bit in their mouth.

And being able to take the bit away making sure your horse's bad behavior is not related to the bit you are using.

bitless 2Older horses with severe tooth loss will be much more comfortable Bitless.

Going Bitless is great for lessons and therapeutic riding programs where the rider has not yet developed the skills necessary to ride in a bit.

Transitioning to Bitless requires a surprisingly small amount of effort and time, sometimes even in the first ride.

We suggest you start in a small, enclosed area lie a round pen or indoor arena.

bitless 3The Dr. Cook Bitless Bridle is marketed all over the world and used in all disciplines.

Available in English and Western styles starting at $69.95, it''s easier than ever to go Bitless.

Made in the USA out of premium American materials.To order go to or call 877-942-4277.

Sustenance Herbs, dedicated to unsurpassed quality

sustenanceOver 13 years ago, Joyce Belcher decided it was high time to turn her passion for holistic health into a business.

Sustenance herbsShe expanded her studies to focus on herbs, and launched Herbs for Life, Inc. in 2008 and worked with several holistic and integrative veterinarians, establishing custom formulas creating a unique line of organic pet supplements as well as a line of herbal medicinals, Joyce’s new company quickly began to thrive…and so did her customers

From the start, Herbs for Life, Inc has been dedicated to unsurpassed quality.

Each one of their products is made using 100% non-GMO, certified organic and/or wild harvested ingredients, and no chemicals are added or used, ever, in the manufacturing process.

The company prides themselves on safety and efficacy and plans to continue growing without losing focus of her mission.

Sustenance 3“Our mission and passion is and has always been to help pets get healthy and stay healthy as nature intended,” she says. Whether an animal needs a daily supplement to balance their immune system or a botanical medicinal to address a more serious issue.

Her Detox Liver Cleanse, for instance, has been a game changer for the health of many animals.

It works to remove heavy metals, restore normal healthy function of the eliminatory organs (Liver, kidneys, lymphatic system, blood and neurological systems) and, like all her products, contains NO inactive ingredients.

Joyce felt the name of her supplement line, Pet Wellness Blends, didn’t fully encompass the values she so strongly upholds.

Sustenance 2So what did she do?

She rebranded!

This product line can now be found under the name “Sustenance Herbs”, a title that better reflects its ability to support and maintain health.

“Sustenance refers to something that is consumed that sustains life or health,” says Joyce. “And the happiness that pet owners have when their dog, cat or horse is healthy, happy and feeling great is what keeps me going!”

Mare Goods offers modern equestrian design

Mare Modern Goods is a destination for modern equestrian design and gifts for horse lovers, but it’s a lot bigger than t-shirts and tumblers.

Mare 1Mare Goods founder Mary Campbell believes that everyone who wants to be a part of the equestrian world has a place in it – regardless of body type, race, age, background, etc.–  so she and her team are committed to featuring every kind of rider and horse.

They work to uplift the community with well-designed products inspired by horses and riders in the community.

Each design tells the story of the human-horse connection, with a side of sass and badass.

One of the signature Mare designs is The Badass Collection.

Not long after getting back into riding and eventing, Mary realized around 90 percent of the competitors were women, showing up with incredible skill and courage to take risks most sane people wouldn’t.

Mare 2Getting over your fear, doing something even when you’re scared, is truly badass.

It’s not the absence of fear but the acknowledgment of it.

It’s respect for the risk and, ultimately, for riding through it.

This sport takes guts!

So she created a collection for all the badasses out there.

Spoiler: if you ride horses,you are a badass.

Because the equestrian community inspires every Mare design, giving back to that community is an essential part of the business.

Mare 3They support several non-profit organizations whose offerings include caring for neglected horses, providing therapeutic riding programs for children and adults in need and other similar missions.

Avoid Heartbreak. Get Equine Colic Relief

“It’s colic.”

Colic 1The words no horse owner ever wants to hear their vet say.

Colic is the number one killer of horses – a painful emergency that can result in major vet bills, surgery…or worse.

Horses become more susceptible to colic in winter, as they tend to drink less when the weather and their water is colder.

A compounding factor is limited turnout due to foul weather, which affects gut motility and increases the risk of colic.

Equine Colic Relief is the number ONE product that stops a bout of colic in progress.

Colic 2It’s easy to keep on hand—just in case—as it has a shelf life of 14 years.

Equine Colic Relief restores motility to the intestines and restores gut sounds within 10 to 45 minutes.

It can dissolve impactions, rehydrate the intestines, rebalance electrolytes, and restore the whole GI tract to a normal state.

Temperature does not affect the efficacy of the product, so have it with you when you are traveling, showing, eventing, trail riding, whatever you do with your horse.

It’s easy to administer as horses like the taste of Equine Colic Relief.

It’s safe for all ages and all size of horses, mules, donkeys or any animal of the equine family.

Colic 3Having a bottle or two on hand when the weather makes it difficult for the vet to get to you quickly is very worthwhile, saving you possibly long waiting times or trying to haul your horse in bad weather.

Don’t spend your holidays in the barn any longer than you have to.

A truly practical Christmas Gift....."Peace of Mind" in a Bottle

Find Equine Colic Relief at your local tack shop or order online at or by phone at 888-675-5866.

Nunn Finer is the perfect gift for one who understands true quality

It didn't take a rocket scientist to name Nunn Finer.

Nunn 1When your mission is to make better products than what you can currently buy and your last name is Nunn, it's a bit of a no brainer.

Nunn Finer Product has been around for quite a while, but up until 8 to 10 years ago you might have only heard of Nunn Finer if you participated in the sport of Eventing.

“Other than saddles, if you use it in Eventing Nunn Finer produced it” said John Nunn, the owner and guiding force behind the company.

From breastplate to bridles, studs that go in the horseshoes to heavy-duty, long-lasting reins and stirrup leathers, Nunn Finer makes it last for the very “tough on tack “ discipline of Eventing.

When the hunter and jumper disciplines got wind of the quality of Nunn Finer, a new evolution evolved.

Nunn 2We designed and manufactured a whole line up of bridles, breastplates and martingales for that market, and within short order Nunn Finer was the talk of the hunter-jumper circuit from Wellington to Thermal.

Go to Nunn Finer for fine Italian leather and old craftsmen’s workmanship at a price one can afford.

Nunn 3Sold at fine saddlerys nationwide or buy direct at

Nunn Finer is the perfect holiday gift for that hard to buy for person that understands and appreciates true quality.

When it says, “ Nunn Finer” , it truly is Nunn Finer.

For more information, call 610-932-3922 or visit
