Who We Are

Unbridled Promotions was founded by Rick + Sharon Wagner. We've dedicated our personal lives to helping our fellow equestrians. Now, we're dedicating our careers. As Fred Whitfield said after the American semifinals in Mesquite, "anything that advances the sport is good."

With over 25 years in the communications industry, we have the experience to bring your brand to life. From basic advertising pieces to web site design to fully customized marketing campaigns, we develop highly personalized strategies that maximize your return on investment.

We speak your language

We're horse people too. We compete and we live by the cowboy code.

We won't try to impress you with a lot of industry jargon. Instead you'll get plain talk and simple explanations to your all your questions. Rest assured that you'll understand what we're doing and why - every step of the way.

We approach every project as if our success as a business depends on your success as a business. Because it does.
