Quilting, sewing and knitting are a few of the many talents exhibited by the owner and founder of Pegasus Threads, Susan Fantl. Susan is an avid and accomplished dressage rider who combined her passion of riding and sewing to create a beautiful product for the equestrian. Over the years Susan’s custom designed saddle pads have been sought out by dressage, hunter/jumper, event and trail riders.

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 event horses, drill teams, trail riders and acrobat riders. NickerWraps sponsors two riders per year supplying them with monthly wraps of their choice to showcase at local, state and national competitions and donates products to different groups and individuals for fundraisers throughout the year.
Patty has enjoyed meeting many wonderful and interesting customers over the years. The common bond of, a love for horses, is the thread that binds. Learn more about Patty and NickerWraps by visiting her website at www.nickerwraps.com and follow her on Facebook at www.facebook.com/NickerWraps.
