The “other” animals of SmartPak

thumb

“As a customer of SmartPak, you’ve probably talked to one of our fantastic Customer Care Representatives. You know that we’re pretty much either horse owners or dog owners (or both). You know that we often bring our dogs to the office (since you may have heard them barking in the background on a call to us), but have you ever wondered if we have other animals that we share our lives with?…”

In the Tack with the Pak – Colby and Timex

Colby_Timex-thumb

As riders, we know there’s a special connection between us and our horses that’s hard to put into words, but this bond is so strong that even non-riders can sense it. In an effort to better understand this relationship, our staff Photographer, Kristi (one of the few non-riders at SmartPak), will be visiting a different SmartPaker’s barn each month to watch them interact with their horses and learn more about their story as a pair. She will document her experiences in this monthly blog series along with some of her photography, because we all know that a connection so special is hard to describe simply in words.

Apparently I've been obsessed with horses since I was born, and I used to beg for pony rides on a regular basis. I started showing in 4-H, progressed to equitation and jumpers in high school and rode on the IHSA team in college where I also discovered the joys...
