Bottom strap of breeching goes to girth-regardless the style.

Breeching: This is REAL breeching that is user friendly to all. Designed with horses in mind.  Why use breeching? Breeching helps stabilize a load more than any crupper, and is also nicer to the animal.  Some horses and mules do not like a crupper, or they put up their tail up or hold it off to the side and off goes the crupper.  Some equines have such a difficult tail set it is very hard to properly set a crupper and the animal ends up galled or worse yet, ornery and may buck.  Thanks to Ronda and Clete from CR Ass Ranch, we took breeching to a whole new level.  Made with \ your loved one in mind. This breeching is half the weight anything else on the market.  Stronger than any leather and more stable with ten - yes 10 –  1 inch soft nylon straps from 30 to 40 inches long to accommodate both small and huge equines. All the hardware is stainless, no more rust ever.  The ten stainless steel sliders and 6 swivel trigger snaps make for quick and easy adjustments, on and off.  Gone for good are those horrible Conway buckles and dry, brittle – rotten leather that is impossible to work with. The strap is now 3 inches wide and 37 inches long and completely padded with the HVF Soft-Touch padding.  No more cutting into and galling your animals’ buttocks.  This is the most awesome breeching ever developed by real mule and horse riders alike – we all hope you love it as much as we do! Comes in black or brown.   Item #: HR-BR –Price $198.00

Portable / adjustable pail / bucket holder:  This easy-to-use pail/bucket holder will not rust, rot or corrode.  Made of stainless steel hardware and NYLON this holder is strong, completely safe and will last a lifetime.  22 inches long with 1-inch black nylon; 4-inch Stainless Steel spring snap and a 2-inch Stainless Steel O-ring.  HVF exclusive. Item # HR-PH – Price $11.50


Bells:  Bells are commonly used to alert wild life when you are riding and are used on high-lines, picket-lines and fencing to alert owners when things are getting out of control and require attention.  The large cowbell is copper and measures 4 x 3 x 2 and has a deeper ring.  The smaller liberty bell is brass and measures 2 x 2.5 inches and has a tingly ring.   Item # HR-CB Price $5.50 cow bell or Item # HR-LB Price $2.00 for the liberty bell.

Picket Line Tightener: This "tight rope" is the ONLY way to tighten up your sagging picket/high line. It is so easy and yet ingenious (we were the inventor's inspiration for this gizmo, after he saw us struggling with our self-tightening knots). You may think about making one yourself but for the price offered… forget it. Just order one, you will never be sorry. How to use: Put your rope up and make it as tight as you can by hand. Then position the two knobs of the tightener so that the rope runs between them. Then firmly hold the tightener and begin to walk-twisting the tightner so that the rope twists around the knobs of the tightner. When very tight, latch the clip on the line. HVF-Exclusive. Item # HR-PT – Price $30.00

*Safety Tip* When horse camping, space your leads 20 to 24 feet apart, giving each animal an area that is 10 to 12 feet. Set the length of the animals lead long enough where they can lie down. Make sure that he is 8 to 10 feet away from any vehicle, trailer or trees.

Twist n’ Flex:  This giant twist tie is a handy twist, perfect for so many uses. The strong, plastic-coated iron wire is 32 inches long. It is further coated with soft foam and is simple to twist – as one would do with a twist-tie.  This Twist n' Flex is perfect for tying up a loose end of rope on your picket or high line, for tying up pails, buckets, tarps – you name it.  No messing with baler twine and then with scissors or knife cutting it loose.  This is a wonderful product to have with a price that cannot be beat. Packaged as a pair of two, red or black color.  Item # HR-TW- Price $9.99

No-Knot Eliminator Picket Fastener: By popular demand, I’ve included this picket fastener. If you use a line heavier than a half inch or a line with a lot of stretch, (basically not the rope we sell) you will find that the other picket fasteners will "pop" loose. With this No-Knot-Eliminator I can absolutely guarantee a secure hold! Item # HR-KNOT - Price $5.99

*Safety Tip* When horse camping, space your leads 20 to 24 feet apart, giving each animal an area that is 10 to 12 feet. Set the length of the animals lead long enough where they can lie down. Make sure that he is 8 to 10 feet away from any vehicle, trailer or trees.

The Horse Positioner: At last a picket or high line fastener that you can put on both a high-line cable and a picket rope too! A fastener that you can move without lowering or loosening your high line/picket line. This ingenious little loop attaches easily to rope or cable stays put and will not slide. Position your hay bags, feed bags and horses and reposition them with total ease. We offer a 2-inch ring for an additional $1.00. This ring will allow for a quicker release of your lead rope. To use the horse positioner: 1) Hold the positioner with your hand by the copper crimp in front of the line and about 2" above it. 2) With your other hand take the bottom of the "horse positioner" and bring it up behind the picket line and through its self and over,  forming a "larks head knot".   3) Repeat step 2 two more times. 4) Pull the loop down and straighten the rope so that copper clip is flat in front and the coils of rope are not over each other. 5) To test, slide "the horse positioner" side to side with your hand on the rope coils (not the bottom loop), next pull side ways with the bottom loop and it will lock each way. 6) Note, if the loop is too long, repeat step 2.
Item # HR-HP - Price $4.50 each or 4 for $16.00
Optional ring - Price $1.00

     Video for rope line and Video for cable or fixed line.

I have used it before for my other Sports saddle and it is very good and durable.   BTW, I bought the first pair from Saddle Up Tack & Supplies, Inc one year ago and they say they do not carry this item anymore.

We love the fenders we ordered last month from you. No more pinched leg calves. Pat

Can be customized,  Sold as a pair leathers not included.  HVF Exclusive.  Item # HR-F - Price $50.00

Great for barn and herd sour horses or those sassy ones when out on the trail.  Item #HR-RS – Price $10.00.

P.S. I thought of another idea for the use of the "wrist swap"!!! My horse is now cured of her barn sourness, and now I attach the swap onto the middle of my reins, so it's there for use "in case", and I can also use it when my horse bends down to drink....I just grab it and she has all the rein she needs to get her head down, and I don't have to lean way over to keep a hold of the reins. It works great! It also gives me an extra leather strap in case I need to tie something to my saddle, or fix broken tack while on the trail. It's always there, and never in my way! I love it! Thanks so much, Kelly Ankney

The Tilley Cap:  The best cap EVER! The lighterweight Tilley cap is handcrafted of a strong, laminated, waterproof nylon, Tilley Nylamtium® which is 10-ounce (per square yard) cotton duck, a tough, soft, closely woven, preshrunk, water and mildew-repellent, canvas-like material. This cap has been certified with an ultraviolet protection factor (UPF) of 50+, the maximum rating given. Designed so that it picks up sweat from your forehead and wicks it away to your temple area where it evaporates. A layer of closed-cell foam in the crown, and brim, provides the positive buoyancy, great for boaters and anglers. The Tilley Cap comes with a tuck-away, adjustable, fore 'n' aft wind cord. When it's calm, the wind cord stays hidden in the crown. When there's a breeze, place the part with the sliding knots behind your head and for your comfort, they're held on by gravity, not painful pressure on your forehead. Guaranteed for life and replaced free if they ever wear out, shrink or fall apart. They're so carefully handcrafted and made of such strong materials, that many outlive their owners.  For sizing, the cap has an internal size-adjustment device that allows you to adjust it to suit your unique head size.

Hi Kathy:  Attached is a few pic of the riding pants..... These jaipurs are very comfy, I have road in them several times, I prefer them over my wrangler aruar riding jeans...... I have problems with my feet hurting, and getting num, I assume it is circulation, but they do much better in these pants. I guess it is because there is no seems that meet in the crouch area...... (
I have ridden in them several times, I wore them at Midwest last week when it was hot and humidity, they were cooler then the riding jeans I normally ware.   I have issues with my feet getting numb and have the needles and pins sensation when riding, that is much better with these pants....I can only assume this is because there are not seems in the crouch area.....) I would recommend them to any of my friends.... They are no hotter than the jeans, maybe not as hot, which really surprised me......A nice surprise....I would be more than happy to ride in the other summer tights that you have.....and let you know what I think.

Boa Horse Boot™ (Sold in Pairs) provides excellent hoof protection for occasional and every day riding. It can also be used in the correction and treatment of founder, navicular disease, punctures, abscesses, bruises, contracted heels, and other impact-caused injuries. It provides protection to the frog, sole, hoof wall, hairline and bulb area. This boot is designed to protect and remain on the hoof in most riding conditions without motion induced joint interference. It is a quick fix for the occasional lost shoe. The outside tread pattern of the Boa Horse Boot has been designed for traction without injuries and since these boots are centered they can be worn on either the left or right hoof. The Boa Horse Boot is quick and easy to use, for no tools or great strength are required to put on or to take off this boot. The boot opens large enough to accommodate the wide base of a hoof and the closure system uses the same technology as snowboard boots and modern athletic shoes. This system allows the boot to fit snugly on almost any hoof to above the hairline. With the turn of a knob the reel develops significant leverage so tightening force is created with very little effort. Adjustments can be made in very small increments; helping to fit many differently shaped feet. This closure is solid so it cannot loosen up, but as the boot itself stretches through the course of the day, a quick half turn of the knob tightens it back up again. For removal, pull the dial and the lace tension is released and the boot is easily slipped off.     Pair of Boa boots: Item # HB-BOA - Price $140.00  (gaiters come standard with sizes 0, 1 and 2)

Sizing the Boa Boot:
1. Measure the width of the hoof across the bottom at the widest point.
2. Measure the length of the hoof from the toe to the buttress line of the heel. The buttress line is the farthest weight bearing point of the heel.
3. Compare your measurement with the size chart below.
4. Ideally, the width and length measurement will fit into the same Boa Horse Boot™ size. If the width and length measurements indicate different Boa Horse Boot™ sizes, select the larger Boa Horse Boot™ size

Hi Cathy !

We made it to the hills and back!!  Hot but we rode in the morning before it got too warm!  How was your trip to ND??

Just sending you an email to let you know I am returning the larger of the two boa boots - I'm also returning the two sets of gaiters - there was a set of gaiters in with the boots.  The smaller ones worked out GREAT!  We rode all types of terrain and went up and down rocks, through water and mudd - I was a bit paranoid at first I kept checking to see if they were still on - but the most we had to do was tighten them a few clicks after riding for a bit.  I think they're better than shoes actually as it protects the entire foot - our tender foot boy was leading the pack and doing so willingly!!  Also, out in the dry grass horses with shoes on were actually sliding because the grass was so dry and with the boa boots he didn't slide a bit - same goes for when we had to cross the pavement road - others were sliding and he just walked right over it with out missing a beat.  Thanks a bunch - you saved the day!!

Dear Cathy,  I enjoyed our phone visit last Monday. The BOA boots I ordered then, arrived yesterday, and I'm very pleased with them. Misty, my 26 year old sweetheart, began walking almost normally as soon as I put them on, and this afternoon we had a very short ride, our first since November. The boots were very easy to put on, as you'd said. I was afraid that might be a problem, but it wasn't.

Attached is a picture. My el cheapo WalMart camera doesn't do very well on cloudy snowy days like today, but it was such a treat to me, to see her saddled and moving more or less normally, that I couldn't resist.

Thanks again. Lynn Hall

Subject: Boa Boots update


Just wanted to check in and let you know that the Boa boots that I purchased from you in November have worked quite nicely. You were kind enough to sell the set of "studs" to me at cost if I were to report to you on their performance.

The studs have been quite aggressive. But in my case aggressive is what I needed. I live in a pocket of Northwest Colorado where the weather can be quite severe. I have a mare that suffers from arthritis in the stifle and I find that balancing and using her hind end to thwart slippage on the ice "hills" around my place can cause her a lot of pain.

I’ve only had to use the studded boots a couple of times (and only on her hind feet), but so far, so good. With her weight, the studs seem to "dig" into the ice and it gives her a little more traction so that she doesn’t have to use her body to do so.

As the studs are quite aggressive, I take them off of her as soon as it snows over or the ice melts.

Application of the studs to the boot was not necessarily difficult, but kind of a pain in the bottom as one must work within such a confined space. I’d love to see a "slip-on" kind of attachment for the studs rather than having to permanently alter the boots by putting holes into them …

As the season progresses, I will follow with more feedback.

Thank you and happy New Year to you and yours…

Hey, Cathy - just thought I'd drop a note to let you know how pleased I am with my Boa boots. I LOVE them! A friend of mine liked mine so well she bought some too. They literally sell themselves.

There is a group of us from down here (El Dorado AR) who will be spending spring break at Cedar Lake Equestrian Camp in Oklahoma. That's were we met you last year. The only one who you might remember would be my brother - he's the most rememberable - tall slender, kept kidding you all about riding in your underwear instead of wrangler jeans. And I believe he helped you break into your trailer or motor home when you locked yourself out. Or was that one of your companions he helped? Anyway, the dates of our spring break are March 20th thru 26th. Hope you can make it down.

Subject: Results on BOA Boot Trail Ride

Cathy, Went to Blowing Rock, NC, for a long weekend ... great carriage trails meander up to the Moses Cone Manor. A great spot. Anyway, the trails were not rocky, but had small cinder stones. First day I rode with my SWISS boots on the front. "My princess" got on to one trail with lots of cinders and practically went down every fourth step in back.

So next day, on went the SWISS in front and the Size-2 BOAs with gaiters in back. Trails were great after all that rain except for the uphill thru mud to get to the trail. Well, we lost the cap to one of the BOA's in the mud and was nevermore seen. But the rest of the trail was no mud (or shallow mud), so we continued.

The BOAS worked ... we took a trail we could not do the day before. Now, I have need to get extra caps ... do you sell them separately? I think I need to keep a few spares around.

As to the fit, I recommend that anyone using the gaiters consider a larger size. That gaiter seems to take off an eighth inch in length. The size-1 BOA's have an excellent, almost custom, fit on the back without gaiters. With gaiters, they won't go on. That's why I used size-2 on the back. Having no size-3 for the front I used my SWISS boots. (I may send back one pr size-2 and one pr size-1 and get a size-3, but will let you know end of week when I try the boots again having gained some experience working with them.)

Subject: RE: Boa accessories

My name is Jennifer Campbell and I ordered a pair of the boa boots a little over a week ago. My horses seem to really do well with them. In fact, one of my mares has navicular and a spur. We have not been able to ride her much, but I have ridden her for the last two nights in them and she is doing great. I would like to order another pair, so both of my mares have a set. I would also like to purchase 4 of the caps to have as spares. I would also like to know how much a spare cord kit costs (Do you think that it is a good idea to
have the spare cord kit, or is that something that rarely happens)?  Do you still have my order info from the last order?

Thank you, Jennifer
