About Horse Lovers Gear
Evon has gathered together some of her most favorite GEAR for both horses and humans. Some of the gear is custom made because Evon belives that quality gear makes a difference for both horse and rider. PLUS she has designed a really cool LOGO and uses it on her gear as well.
The LOGO history is this: Evon loves- HORSES as well as UNITED STATES and believes in FREEDOM. The logo represents each of these; RUNNING HORSES are freedom, faith and dreaming; the FLAG and the COLORS in the mane represent Freedom in the UNITED STATES and patriotism. Her faith also is represented because someday we will be riding with our Savior in the final battle for FREEDOM.
