Echo valley Ranch Inc., established in 1972 in Auburn California, is EasyCare's Dealer of the Month for September 2011.
Like EasyCare, owner Greg Kimler believes that "success is a direct result of paying attention to the details". He owns nine horses and have been involved in ranching and farming for his entire life.
He recently became interested in endurance trail riding, and he and his wife have both ridden the Western States Trail Ride (better known as the Tevis Cup), with an impressive 3 completions between them. Tevis is a 100 mile trail ride that is ranked among the top ten endurance competitions in the world by Time magazine, alongside events like the the Tour de France, the Iditarod and the Dakar Rally.
Echo Valley Ranch has been proud distributor of EasyCare products for over ten years, carrying the Original Easyboot, the Easyboot Epic, and the EasySoaker and several other EasyCare products. They believe that the hoof care industry has been revolutionized in recent years, with EasyCare hoof boots leading the way.
They look to Garrett Ford and The Fury winning the 2010 Haggin Cup after riding Tevis in Easyboot Glue-Ons as and indication of how far we've come in the hoof care industry.
Echo Valley Ranch also specializes in feed, with over 10 varieties of hay in stock at all times. They employ a staff of 30, and are actively involved in community programs like 4-H and FFA.
When asked where he thinks the barefoot horse industry is headed, owner Greg Kimler responded: "With a leading distributor like EasyCare, the sky is the limit!"
