Bending Line Designs
Riding and owning horses is extremely rewarding; however, it can also be quite challenging and stressful. At Bending Line Designs, we offer high quality and unique products that make your life as an equestrian easier, more effective, and more enjoyable. Our goal is to bring you products that help minimize the stressors in your equestrian life and help you enjoy all things horse related.
Hi, my name’s Kate Caruthers and I established Bending Line Designs (BLD) in 2015. I started riding at age 30 and fell in love with riding and horsemanship. BLD was created as a way to incorporate my passions in life – graphic design, art, and horseback riding. We are a very small equestrian themed business based in our hometown of Moon Township, PA. I currently have two horses, Ellie Mae (my southern girl, a draft cross with plenty of charm and a side helping of sass) and Mario (my retired Appendix living his best life and the original inspiration for BLD). In addition to the horses, we have three dogs – Millie (a black chihuahua and the boss of our house), Esther Sue (the sweetest bullmastiff ever), and Bippy (our yellow lab who thinks every day is the best day ever). Last, but definitely not least, there is Joe – my wonderful husband for the past 12 years.
BLD started as an equestrian t-shirt company, with us printing shirts out of our garage, and has evolved into an equestrian brand with a variety of product offerings. We carry digital printable products (like our journals and greeting cards), art prints, and an assortment of laser-cut products (everything from signs and ornaments to charms and jewelry). We take pride in each item produced by BLD. I develop the designs, hand paint artwork, design the journals, shoot the product pics, and manage the blog and website. All of our wood is stained and finished by hand prior to lasering. Our art prints are produced in our Moon Township studio with a large format Epson scanner and a professional grade Canon printer. All prints are limited editions, with only 100 printed in each available size offering, and are signed and numbered on the back of each print.
