In early 2011 the 1st Xchange stocks and tabs where created and quickly became a revolution in pre-tied stock designs, little did anyone know how popular the concept would become. The idea of adding crystal chains and adornments (AKA bling) the the more traditional style Euro stocks created a need for a 'tab' that was removable for washing the stock and the opportunity to change the look of the stock to match the discipline, horse and rider attire with ease and quickness made this a product begging to be designed.
Working with show horse browband makers Equistyle Quality Stocks was able to fit out riders to fit out riders with stocks to match their opulent browbands finishing their look to perfection. By mid to end of 2012 replicas of the design concept where appearing, although not to the design standards or quality of Equistyle in either visual balance or attachment.
Equistyle DO NOT use velcro to attach the tab to the stock, unlike other businesses who try to replicate this product, but an unique concept created by Equistyle Quality Stocks.
This innovative design was the creation of Miescha Phillips, owner/designer of Equistyle Quality Stocks and is still the most sought after brand for Xchange style of stocks on the market today.
