Welcome to Badlands Equine, owned by Marlene Moss, and named after our home surrounded by the Badlands Wilderness near Bend, Oregon. Previously, I started Moss Rock Endurance, a business dedicated to designing and making custom biothane tack and providing other endurance products including EasyCare items and Free'n'Easy Saddles to endurance and trail riders. Lisa Douglass carried on the tradition when we moved on to owning a boarding facility and focusing on saddlefitting. We also ran a 50-60 horse boarding facility which was hard work, but one of the most educational times of my life. I had opportunities to ride and train many horses, advancing my skills much faster than otherwise. We also learned so much about horse care and dealing with injuries and illness.
Through all of this, endurance has been our steadfast goal. Some years allowed more riding than others, but we finally live in the perfect location with tons of trails for conditioning and lots of competitions nearby. This allows us to bring everything together! I love being able to help horse and rider with a comfortable way to share the miles together. I currently sell Ghost treeless made in Italy and Bua saddles made in Ireland, both excellent choices for many riding styles and horse shapes.
My husband Stace has studied farriery and while he doesn't offer this service professionally at this time, he will consult with people during our saddle fitting clinics as foot and back issues are often connected. We support horses being barefoot when possible and have added Scoot Boots and EVO Hoof Boots to the product line as well. We've both studied saddle fitting, mostly in relation to several of the adjustable panel saddles available. Although we've carried saddles for sale, our saddle fitting sessions have nothing to do with selling a saddle. The goal is to teach the person how to judge saddlefit on their own and make suggestions how to make the current saddle work whenever possible. We've even done saddle fitting clinics in the back parking lot of used saddle stores so we can work with as many saddles as possible to find the best fit for you and your horse.
We've been competing in endurance and competitive trail riding since 2001. We changed our lives for this wonderful sport and are always happy to share our experiences with others and help them discover the fun!

Non-custom items may be return in new/unused condition for full refund less shipping expenses. We highly suggest that saddles be demoed prior to purchase to avoid unexpected issues. I will facillitate the sale of custom saddles (those other than standard leather in black or brown or those with custom flap lengths etc) by listing on my used saddle pages and supporting a buyer through fitting advice. Cancelled standard saddle orders are subject to a 15% restocking fee.
