About Us

Pat and her horse, Cappy

We are a small women-owned business that creates custom embroidered Wilker's pads and leg wraps for the comfort of your horse.

Horses have always held a special place in my heart and as I started to ride again after a 30-year hiatus, I was dissatisfied with the products available to me. Many were synthetic materials and I was looking for products made from natural, breathable fabrics that were visually pleasing, easy to care for, and most importantly comfortable for the horse. When I could not find what I was looking for, I tapped into my innovative side, created my own pattern, and make it myself.

This experience opened my eyes to an unmet need in the equestrian community, so I combined my creativity and love for the horse world and launched So Southern in 2012.

So Southern is growing strong as a custom equestrian tack shop. Our products start with Wilker's saddle, show, and therapeutic pads as well as leg wraps and then we customize each product with a choice of over 100 embroidery designs, 60 different fonts, and over 288 thread colors, the possibilities are endless.

Our company may be small, but we are deeply committed to building community and giving back. We've partnered with equestrian ambassadors Victoria “Tori” Colvin and Nathan Harvey and support the good work they are doing. We also host monthly cancer ribbon campaigns to bring awareness and support to those living with the devastating effects of cancer.

All of our products are made and customized in the USA.

We believe that functional can be beautiful, let's work together to express your unique vision.
