The Clothes Horse-Proud to be Official Cooler Sponsor for Inaugural Pre-Green Incentive Program Championship      

Whether you are dressing your beloved show horse or your best-friend and trail-riding partner...  Whether you are setting up a tack room display around your single stall, or the whole tent... Whether your tack trunks were custom made from rare hardwood or picked up from the local hardware store, The Clothes Horse can work with you to elevate the function of your horse clothes, tack room drapes, or trunk covers into art.  The Clothes Horse was the first to make custom designed clothing that branded a barn, or tickled the fancy of a horse owner, over 40 years ago, and continues to set the standard today.  Olympian Beezie Madden says, "For quality, durability, and service, we look to The Clothes Horse to dress our horses.  They have always done a remarkable job for us.  The service is outstanding and the products are not only beautiful, but beautifully made and constructed to last."

 

Almost all items are fully custom made here in our New Jersey, USA facility.  We work with each customer to design exactly what they envision for their new clothing.  We offer numerous stock embroidery fonts, or can embroider any logo.  The Clothes Horse also offers design services if you don't have a logo and want to design one.  Additionally, we now offer a full array of customized people clothes.  So you can dress yourself, your friends or your staff to match as well. 

 

The inaugural USHJA Pre-Green Incentive Program Championship will be held August 14 through 15, 2013in conjunction with the USHJA International Hunter Derby Championship at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, KY. Any horse enrolled in the program that has competed in a minimum of two USHJA Pre-Green Stake classes at competitions starting between December 1, 2012, and July 31, 2013, is eligible for the championship.

 

The Clothes Horse wishes all the competitors in the Pre-Green Incentive Program Championship the very best of luck in this exciting inaugural year.  The pot keeps getting bigger... and the excitement right along with it!  Please visit us online or "Like" us on Facebook to find out more about what we offer, and then call Katrina at 856-829-8460to discuss your ideas.
