Sally Sovey’s earliest memory is of a beloved rag toy horse with a mop mane and tail.   From that start she headed off on the eclectic west coast horse-crazy girl experience. Learning to ride at a local stables, she wandered the flood controls of southern California.   As a teenager she drove light and heavy harness teams, and then rode on the mounted drill team. She was on the OSU jumping team in college and out of college worked as a wrangler and cook for a hunting camp in the Great Bear Wilderness, and later rode in the bison roundups at the National Bison Range in Montana.  

   In her thirties she fell in love with dressage and never looked back. Sally is now an FEI rider, a United States Dressage Federation “L” Program Graduate with Distinction, an Equine Sports Massage Therapist, and a Reiki practitioner.  She judges League and Schooling dressage shows throughout the Northwest, pursues her riding goals, and keeps company with the Wild Woollies.

   Throughout this varied experience--Western,  English, harness and packing-- there has been one constant: the tack and equipment has to be maintained and cleaned regularly.  Preparing a team of Belgians out for a parade or your dressage partner for a test requires that the turnout is spotless. No matter what your focus it is important that you have the time, tools, and know-how to keep your equipment clean well maintained.   

   Sally and Dale developed the Wild Wooly Products in the hopes that everyone can enjoy the benefits of well cared for equipment…beauty and improved function, never mind safety and longer, more economical life.
