Centaur® Fence was developed because inventor, Ed Robbins, witnessed a tragic accident almost 30 years ago – a friend’s horse became entangled in a traditional wire fence, and was subsequently euthanized due to extensive injury. It was then that Robbins, an avid horseman, swore he would create fencing material that would be extraordinarily safe for horses. Today at Centaur®, all the rail and single strand products utilize HTP®, an exclusive cross-linked polymer technology, to create an incredibly strong and flexible horse fence.
Each rail or strand is installed in a continuous run, allowing any impact to be
the entire length of the fence. Horses are safely contained and property value
is increased. These are the qualities that make Centaur® an asset, not a liability.

What makes Red Brush Different?
Red Brush Trailers is not just another trailer place. We are a horse family that has a passion for horses and riding. We use what we sell so we know what works and what does not work. Our goal is getting the customer the trailer that fits their needs, not just selling a trailer out of our inventory. Our dealership is only 1 year old but in that time we nearly reached the top 10 dealer list in the entire United States. We did this by meeting the needs of our customers with courteous and timely responses and a smooth ordering process. No change is too large or too small when it comes to a custom ordered trailer. Being the 11th largest Exiss/Sooner dealer in the country is an honor we do not take lightly and we know that it is ultimately the customer that determines where they buy their trailer.
Whether it is a totally custom unit or a unit from our stock we promise to make your buying experience a pleasurable one. Then, after the sale, should you need warranty work, we handle the process and make it as painless as possible. Exiss/Sooner has a 3/8 warranty, the strongest in the industry. For a full 3 years the interior parts of the trailer are covered. The frame and chassis are covered against defects for a period of 8 years. Second to none in the industry.

ThinLine is made in the USA and we support USA manufacturers for assembly of most of our product lines. ThinLine pads are different from other saddle pads because they incorporate a unique, open cell technology which moves shock, weight, and heat laterally along the pad without compressing. The result is 95% shock absorption in a thinner, less bulky pad. The trademark open cell technology also makes ThinLine horse tack 100% breathable so heat and moisture are not trapped. An anti-microbial agent is also infused into ThinLine girths and horse boots. Because ThinLine doesn't compress or slip, pressure points created by movement in the saddle or challenges associated with working muscles are nearly eliminated.
ThinLine is a small company with great customer service; we are all riders. Many professionals endorse our products, and ThinLine does not pay riders for endorsements. Please be sure to thank them if they sent you our way, they are doing it because they simply want the horses to be happier, and that is what it is all about for us too.
