Sarah Paull is a lifelong rider and SmartPak’s Brand Manager. You may know her better as the life-size foam finger from the London Olympics, the host of USEF Network’s Live from London coverage, or “that girl from the Stuff Riders Say videos.” Prior to joining SmartPak in 2008, Sarah worked as a Veterinary Technician at B.W. Furlong & Associates in Oldwick, NJ, and obtained her degree in Equine Science from Centenary College. Sarah is the proud mom of Cody, a semi-retired, 23-year-old Quarter Horse gelding, and she’s currently looking for an eventing partner to help her get rid of all the extra time, money and energy she doesn’t actually have :-) If you're interested in her often-horsey, always-odd musings, follow @SmartPakerSarah on Twitter.

    Re bridle fit: We just ordered a new bridle for our TW/SSH gelding, who has a fine big carriage-horse head. The bridle will fit, although barely, if we punch one more hole in each cheekpiece, it’s fine. But the throatlatch is at least 5″ too short. I’ve looked everywhere online for larger fine bridles (not those 1″ wide single-layer chrome-tanned leather ones), not much luck. And, it has to be black! Not easy to find. So where can I buy a very long black throatlatch?

    SmartPak makes a top quality bridle – just wish you made one in a Quarter Horse size, or the option to customize a bridle with different sized cheek pieces, and headbands, so that it would fit my guy’s lovely head (broad forehead and shorter face).

    These education videos are the types of things that I wish that I had when I started working with horses way back when.

    This was such a helpful video- it made me realize that my bridle was not fitting properly! Thanks SmartPak!
