As equestrians, we take pride in everything to do with our horses but one thing in particular is ensuring our tack is clean and well looked after. And rightly so, that s*** is expensive!!

Bitless Riding has become something of a trend recently so we decided we wanted to learn a bit more about it. We're not sure Dante & Coco are the best horses to test it out on so we got our good friend Heather from "Freya The Connemara" to talk us through her experience and answer a few questions we had on the subject!
We both really enjoyed our first lesson with Christa Dillion from Blackhill Eventing, so much so that we got her out for a second! Lessons where you get pushed and challenged to the best of your ability are definitely the kind of lessons that we need at the minute. We both feel we need something or someone to push us forward.

So we've compiled a list of some of our favourite, good quality products and brands that keep us coming back for more.
