Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding.
Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.
Proverbs 3:5-6 NLT

There are many barns where almost all the boarders use my rope tack. I don't know all the names/places but I have listed a few below. I have many return customers and get lots of referrals from those who love my tack.
If you don't see your barn listed here, I'm sorry I have missed you. Please contact me and I'll add your barn to the list.
Several professional horse trainers use Y Knot Rope Tack products for their training equipment. Some have wholesale accounts and carry their own inventory. Some have my referral credit account - they refer clients to me, I handle the order, they get a percentage of the order as a credit to their account. Some have a combination of both. I have had a few trainers for several years, others have come and gone - some are no longer training for various reasons, some outgrew my ability to keep up with their demand for tack (volume and speed).
Most of my trainers are more interested in having their clients use the right equipment than making a bunch of money on tack sales. They know that their training methods will be more effective when the client uses the right tools - at clinics, lessons or at home. This in turn will lead to more positive feedback for the trainer. If you are a trainer, please contact me if you are interested in getting more information about my wholesale, private label or referral credit accounts. But please be aware that since I am the only one who makes everything, I cannot do large orders with a quick turn-around time.
