Cottonwood Farm Las Vegas

A superior Dressage facility in Las Vegas.  The grounds are very unexpected for the Desert, looks like a farm on the East Coast.  Equestrian Etc had a great selection of Ruffled Stock Ties on hand, as well as the Newest Stock tie from Equi-Logic called the Color Block Stock.  The Red Block was the most popular today, with Silver running a close second!  Fun for all!  

Schooling Show Dec 10

Schooling show at Cottwood Farms Las Vegas on Dec 10.  We will be attending as a vendor.

Equi-Logic Stockties

Equi-Logic is our stock tie supplier.  They are the largest manufacturer of Stok Ties made in the USA.  Since they created the Ruffled Stock tie over 17 years ago, they have some good ideas brewing.  We got 2 new fabrics in the Ruffled style,  Check it out on our site.
The new Color Block Stock will hit the horse shows and many dealer Christmas parties this weekend.  They are super cute, and we have stock.!

Measurite Lunge Line

This lunge line could not have the more perfect name.  It really does measure the circle sizes, when size matters in the Dressage ring.  When you girp the colored marker  sewn onto the strapping of the measurite you know you are correct in your circle size.   How are you ever sure if your circle is accurate unless you have this handy tool.  It can make all the difference.

Color Block Stock

So Different from anything else We have seen.

Each Stock Tie has a different "Color Block" sewn to the collar.  The body of the stock tie comes in 2 different fabrics.  The White Poplin with black piping really shows off the styling of the stock tie itself, because of the black piping.  The poplin fabric is available with either a blue, black, red, or purple color block trim sewn on the collar of the Stock Tie.  The trim is  made of grograin ribbon .
Poly satin is the fabric for the dressy version of the Color Block Stock Tie.  The fabric has a sheen and more formal look.  This stock tie is available with either a blue, purple, or black color block, sewn to the collar of this stock tie.  These trims are made of velvet ribbon.  This satin tie is also available with a silver metallic color block, which is a woven metallic ribbon.
All of these stock ties are washable and hang to dry.  Pretied Stock ties are the only was to go and this Color Block Stock Tie,  like the huge collection of Ruffled Stock Ties from Equi-Logic, is also a pre- tied Stock tie. 



Saddle Pad Carrier

How do you carry your saddle pads to the show?  The most common is wrapping them up in a clean trash bag or plastic.  They don't pack very well in a tack trunk, mixed with all the miscellaneous items.  A bag designed specifically for saddle pads in the answer, and you can see it here. Saddle Pad Carrier available in Black and Navy, easy to carry, keeps and keeps them clean! This is a great carrier for saddle pads with an extra pocket.  It will hold 3 to 4 pads and keep them clean.  It hangs up too!  A really great way to transport those pads that need to stay clean!


Cover Your Assets

The manufacturer told me the story of how this padded underwear got started over 20 years ago.  This was just at the time when the new high tech fabrics found a home in some athletic clothing.  Cool max was a new innovation at that time, and it was perfect for riding underwear.  Getting the patterning right was no problem since she had a sewing and designing background.  She was reminded regulalry that the price to pay for the joy of Dressage riding was a sore derriere,  and she wasn't the only one.  Since a good riders seat is one of her best assets, the name "Cover Your Assets" was born.  They were compared to diapers in their infancy (Pun) but they have filled a need for riders who get irritations and need that extra cushion. The pattern has only changed slightly in the 20 years of production.   They have been copied over the years, but these are the originals.  Made from 90% cotton and 10% Lycra they have above the knee length styling.  The shape of the pad is like full seat leather breeches, there are no seams in the critical contact areas or down the sides, and there is 2 inch wide lace elastic at the leg opening, so that panty lines are undetectable.  The lace elastic also holds them in place at just above the knee.  Fleece and Coolmax make up the padding .  That combination absorbs moisture and wicks it away, which breaks the cycle of friction and chafing.  During the past years the manufacturer has tried to improve this product using other innovative fabrics and product that come to the forefront, like gel or other types of wicking fabrics, but the concept never changed.  If your Dressage saddle is rubbing you wrong and you need to soothe your saddle sores, or just want to be more comfortable in your saddle and use your seat in the most effective manner possible, try "Cover your Assets".


The Best Garment Bag!

The Equi-Valet is the best Garment Bag designed for traveling to Horse shows.  It hold 3 to 4 hanging garments in the back of the bag.  It has a built on Hat Box to carry your helmet. It has boot pockets that will fit even the tallest boots.  It has miscellaneous pockets for your Stock Tie, gloves and hair accessories.  Another for belts or socks or whatever.  It has double zippers so access is easy.  The inside is coated so it can be wiped clean, with a stiffener bar to keep the bag from sagging when loaded.  It also hangs longways over a hangar in your closet, so the night before a horse show you know all your important equestrian apparel is in one place.  If you travel by air it will go in the overhead bin so you are never seperated from your most important items.  It is available for Christmas in Navy or Black.
