Avila's Pro Shop / Cowhorse Equipment began in November 1989 when we purchased Cowhorse Equipment from a friend named Ron Berndt who started the company. We were middle-aged horse trainers looking for something with more stability and longevity that wasn't as physically demanding as training horses. This was an excellent choice as we knew how this equipment was going to be used and what it should feel and look like when finished. We had spent 25 years of our lives learning and using equipment like what Cowhorse produced.

When a customer purchases a Cowhorse Equipment product they can be assured it will last for a very long time if properly cared for. We build our products from the best quality USA leather available. We use primarily stainless steel hardware from the best sources.

We utilize unique designs from talented silversmiths who do the custom work for us. Some of our show equipment is made by the finest leather workers available. We inspect every item we build for quality craftsmanship and quality material. You might say we are our biggest critics.

My wife, Lynn, always says "It isn't Cowhorse until we say its Cowhorse."

We personally guarantee the products labeled Cowhorse Equipment to be the very best quality to be found anywhere in the world. This gives our customers the best value for their hard earned money.
