Our client has been manufacturing custom made horse blankets, tackroom drapes, and trunk covers since 1972. Growing out of one man’s desire for the perfect rain sheet the founder had a willingness to try something new, They now makes items for some of the most prestigious show barns and horse shows in the country, as well as for private horse owners nationwide. They started making blankets in her basement alone – but when the business grew each year she had to move out to another facility, add a staff of employees, and the company just keeps on growing.
Every single order is taken and entered into the computer as a custom order. All details are spelled out according to the customer’s specific requests and needs. Then each order is cut, in chronological order, one piece at a time by hand. Next each item is sewn on a single needle machine. This allows us to use high-end finishing methods such as mitered corners on our sheets and blankets that are not possible on the production binding machines used by most blanket makers. The fine tailoring includes a small stitch which makes a more durable item. Other details such as fine leather buckles on dress sheets, real leather reinforcement of stress points on horse clothes and trunk covers, nylon thread reinforcement on tackroom drapes, and double layer construction of name banners and chair backs are simply not found elsewhere. This attention to quality and detail adds time to manufacturing, but the product is worth it. Some satisfied customers include: Beacon Hill, Heritage Farm, Chris Kappler Inc., Brookway Stables, The National Horse Show, The Devon Horse Show, and the Winter Equestrian Festival among many, many others.
