The Horse of Course was founded in 1995 by Beth Haist. Beth's job with American Airlines often sent her to Europe; as an equestrian, she found herself exploring the tack shops of Germany and France. She brought back unique, high-quality items for her fellow riders in the US. Demand for these hard-to-find products grew, and in 1995, Beth and her husband Marty began selling tack from The Horse of Course's very first mobile unit.
Since then, The Horse of Course has expanded to a full-service tack shop with expertise in dressage and hunter/jumper riding. We carry a complete selection of tack and apparel for the English rider: show clothing, stable necessities, training equipment, equestrian sportswear, books, and gifts. We've partnered with experts to design innovative saddles and apparel. Our knowledgeable sales staff can help you find what you need quickly so you can spend more time in the saddle.
The Horse of Course is proud to offer Marty Haist as our expert saddler. Marty studied at the Sommer saddle factory in Germany and continues to expand his knowledge of saddles and saddle repair. Marty is available for repairs, reflockings, and fittings and typically travels with the dressage mobile unit.
Their two mobile units travel both locally and nationally to serve customers. Their local tack trailer travels across Oklahoma at dressage and hunter jumper shows. Their dressage trailer spends most of the summer at dressage shows along the East Coast and spends the winter in Florida. Check their mobile schedule to see where they'll be next!
The Horse of Course is also proud to sponsor many equestrian organizations, teams, and activities both locally and nationally. These include the Oklahoma Dressage Society, Central Plains Dressage Society, Dressage At Devon, the NEDA Fall Festival, and the Green Country Arabian Horse Association.
