Riding is for Everybody and Every Body 2022

Posted on: September 01, 2022 by SmartPak

Back for a second year, the SmartPak Team an incredible time working with real riders– both SmartPakers and SmartPak customers– in our studio to rock some of our products. These riders live and ride locally to our SmartPak office but came with a wide variety of backgrounds in the horse world.

Getting to know our fellow riders and share their images and stories is one of our favorite projects and messages to share. No matter your age, race, sexuality or breech size, we hope you get to enjoy a great ride today!
