    October 9, 2015
    Do you desire to work towards seamless transitions, perfect rhythm and precise control over your horses tempo? The process of developing advanced levels of communication is highlighted in the new disciplines of Cowboy Dressage® and Western Dressage.

  • NickerWraps
    February 6, 2016
    NickerWraps began in August 2011 at a kitchen table in Central California.  As a dressage rider, Patty was frustrated by the lack of COLOR available in not only polo wraps, but equine apparel in general.  After a visit to a local fabric store and many hours working on the construction of the “perfect” polo wraps, NickerWraps was born!  As a new empty-nester, it was the perfect opportunity to devote time to her passion, horses, of course. Patty’s primary goal is to provide a product that is colorful, durable, pleases the rider and looks great on the horse. Over the years Patty has had the opportunity to provide NickerWraps polo wraps to pony riders and outriders at area race tracks including, Golden Gate Fields, Pleasanton, Fresno Fair, Portland Meadows and Turf Paradise in Arizona. Additionally they are being used and can be seen on barrel racers, dressage horses, hunter/jumpers, 3 day...
