About the Performance Pony Company
Performance Pony Company founder, Camie Widmer, started producing clinics and providing lessons at her family ranch, Widmer's Rock 'N Roll Arena in Deep River, IA, in 2008. After many years of helping students and beginning to train horses and ponies on her own, she started to realize the lack of communication between ponies and riders due to poor bit and tack fit. She started to research the availability of bits, tack and accessories for these petite equine athletes, which stood around 12-14 hands, and came up nearly empty handed. What she did find was not the quality, type or style she had in mind.
After a year of the problem still existing, she decided it was time for someone to create a solution to the problem, which lead to the founding of the Performance Pony Company. She spent months taking measurements and researching the best products before she was able to get it off the ground. Today, Camie is confident the Performance Pony Company has a selection of properly fitting bits, tack and accessories to help bridge the communication and product gap that has existed for years in small horses and ponies.
