Our Story

Established in 2014, Hoofbeat Designs Leather Co. offers a wide variety of leather horse tack, equestrian accessories, and made to order memorials and keepsakes. Everything you see here is hand crafted in house, women owned and operated, and based in Western New York. 

Equestrian Inspired and Equestrian Created. That's right all the tack made here is made by an avid horse lover and owner. When I am not in the leather shop you can find me busy engineering new items, out in the garden, in the barn with the animals, or spending quality time with my family. I am a 2012 SUNY Morrisville graduate with an Associates Degree in Equine Science and Management specializing in Western Breaking and Training.

Our Tack Models

First is (Miss Lazy) Lexi, an 2004 Branded 13.1hh Mustang Mare. This girl was a feed lot find that was hours away from being shipped to slaughter. Purchased in Early August of 2017 she came into our lives after losing another horse that was part of our family for over 14 years. She had very big hoof prints to fill and did it beautifully and helped fill a hole we feared would never heal. She came with her title and a note and in it described the most terrifying, unruly horse and almost sealed her fate if we had not taken a chance. Thank goodness we did!

Second is our boy Murphy, a 1998 Paint/Draft 16.2hh Gelding that we our long term fostering for our local SPCA. We took him on in late March 2021 and before us he was beaten, emaciated and was surrendered to the shelter. He was later adopted but then surrendered a year later because of lack of knowledge on the owners part, after being with us for a couple months we found out he does not like men. I am very happy to say he has gained back the weight he needs and he has gained so much trust in me, more than any other horse I have ever had, it truly warms my heart that this boy has a soft landing with us and can live out his years being a model for the brand.
