MEET THE DESIGNER...
Francois Gauthier is a respected reining trainer with over 25 years experience. Originally from Canada, Francois now owns and runs Sunny Pines Farm in North Carolina with 150 horses. An over-15-time NRHA Futurity Finalist and NRHA Judge, Gauthier has also won some of the most prestigious reining events, such as, the All American Congress in Columbus, the Italian Derby and the Americana in Germany, the 2002 Silver Medal World Equestrian Games, the 2004 All American Congress AQHA Junior Reining Champion and the 2004 NRHA Open Futurity Reserve Champion. With career winnings over $500,000, Francois is among the top 25 lifetime National Reining Horse Association earners.
Understanding the importance of having the right tools for effective training, Francois knows that good tack is a key ingredient of winning results. Thus, he’s worked in close partnership with Partrade over the last few years to develop a full line of equestrian items dedicated to professional riding. From bits to spurs, boots to pads, cinches to straps, all these MetaLab/Lami-Cell new product developments have been ruggedly tested before being made available to the marketplace.
The Francois Gauthier (FG) Collection is Partrade’s bestselling line of quality horse products. We are excited to introduce splint, knee, protective and bell boots and a tail guard design in a bevy of colors !
