What is Bending Line Designs?

Established in 2015, we are a very small equestrian themed business based in our hometown of Moon Township, PA.  I created Bending Line Designs as a way to incorporate my passions in life – graphic design, art, and horseback riding.  

We take pride in each item produced by BLD.  I develop the designs, hand paint artwork, shoot the product pics, and manage the blog and website.  Most of all, we hope you enjoy our products and they remind you of your passions!

What is the BLD Tack Room?

Our new and improved Bending Line Designs blog! A place to discuss all things riding related, equestrian fashion and decor. We’ll also be sharing news and upcoming product announcements.

Who is behind Bending Line Designs?

Kate Caruthers: I started riding at age 30 and fell in love with all things equestrian. I am passionate about animals and have four dogs (two chihuahuas, a bullmastiff, and a yellow lab) and two horses. I have also been married to my wonderful husband, Joe, for the past 10 years.

Ellie Mae: My 16 yr old draft cross. A southern girl with plenty of charm and a side helping of sass. She is everything I could want in a riding partner!

Mario: My retired guy! Mar is my 21 yr old Appendix, retired and living his best life. LOL. He was with me when BLD first started and was my primary source of inspiration.
