SpecTACKular BioThane Horse Tack Logo

Welcome to our Spring edition of our Tack Talk Newsletter.

It is hard to believe that Spring is already here. Flowers are blooming, birds are singing, and riders are riding! It has been a long and cold winter, and we are ready to ride the trails. There's nothing like horseback riding on a warm, sunny day; not a cloud in the sky and the beautiful countryside as far as the eye can see. 
We would like to thank everyone who showed up to the Equifest of Kansas as well as the Illinois Horse Fair. It was a blast for us, and we hope you enjoyed it too. If you  haven't gotten the chance to stop by a SpecTACKular booth yet, we will be at the Midwest Horse Fair in Madison, WI, on the 11th-13th of April. See you there. Sherry

Horse Tack Product Info

Planning to shop with us soon? These videos will help you measure your horse so that the SpecTACKular Horse Tack will be as comfortable as possible. We want to help speed up and simplify the process for you guys. You can also print a Barn Ready document to help measure your horses here.
MORE PRODUCT INFO: Our Tack fit is an “athletic fit” for your Equine Athlete. The hardware is smooth against the horse, and we have moved stitching to the outside of the product wherever possible. This allows this type of athletic fit without abrasion or discomfort for your horse. Once adjusted properly, our Bridles will fit snugly against your horse’s skin (except Browbands, Earbands and the Chin Strap on Halter Bridles). It’s a SpecTACKular fit - an improvement over more traditional Tack - and you & your horse will love it.

What's New at SpecTACKular? Dog Collars & More

What do you think? If you visited our booth at Equifest or the IL Horse Fair, then you know we have done a soft launch of our line of Dog Collars & Leashes. We wanted to see what you thought, and we are thrilled to report – it looks like you love the new SpecTACKular Woof! Canine Line.
We will be launching our Canine line, as well as our Belt line to be made of the same superior materials that that our Tack is comprised of – carefree BioThane and Stainless Steel. We will let you know when they are available on our website, but in the meantime – call or email us for more info or to order.
More NEW designs are coming soon – like BLING options for Browbands, Breast Collars and Dog Collars too. There’ll be New Horse Tack Items too. Stay tuned and watch for our next Tack Talk Newsletter for more new product details.
Borium Horseshoe
Q: Are Borium horseshoes for you?
A: If you choose to shoe your trail horse, you may want consider Borium horseshoes for better traction. Traditionally shoed horses don't do well on snow, asphalt, or even large rocks. I've seen skinned up horsey knees & worse.  Our new horse keeping property contains a lot of slippery asphalt surrounding it. Our friends suggested Borium shoes as a solution. On the downside, I was worried that it would disrupt my horses gait and possibly cause leg damage – I took that seriously. But,  for my situation, the benefits outweighed the risk of a horse tumbling – My situation required traction.  Our horse’s first set of Borium horseshoes was 14 years ago and is now the only kind we use.  It turns out my horses' gaits weren't altered and thankfully they still have sound legs.  I've also discovered important traction benefits on the trail too.  For instance, have you ever had your horse slip on a rock, encounter a paved walking path or cross a rocky river?  Borium shoes would help. Are they right for you & your horse?  They're something to consider; spring is here :)
For more on Borium horseshoes and other useful info, check out this article by Bob Smith, Pacific Coast Horseshoeing School.

Online Stuff and Apps We're Enjoying
Spotify Logo
Spotify– is a free music streaming service that has everything from ABBA to ZZ Top. If you are wondering, it is in fact, legal. You can download it onto your mobile device too. On those long days you've set aside to organize the barn or clean a stall, turn on some of your favorite jams using Spotify to help the time pass quickly. Unlike many other music applications, like Pandora, Spotify allows you to select specific songs that you want to listen to and compile playlists with artists you like. Spotify is a great application. Free & available for Desktop, Droid & Apple users.
Horse Keeper – How much does my horse weigh? When is her next farrier appointment? When was her last Coggins test? Horse Keeper is designed to make your horse keeping chores manageable. If you own horses, you know how challenging it can be to keep track of all of your horses' needs. We've just starting testing this & are so far pretty impressed. App is only available for I-Phone users. Cost is $4.99
