At NickerNews and BestHorsePractices, we partner with great businesses that hold up to our nitpicking scrutiny. We like to endorse products and services proven to benefit horse and rider (with evidence-based research whenever possible). Partner products are almost always made in America and have the support of great customer service. Those qualities make up three must-have’s in our book.
Five Star Equine Products, a small business in Hatfield, Arkansas, hits the trifecta.
