If you’re an equestrian enthusiast, chances are you’ve crossed this popular manufacturer’s path a time or two. Did you know…

  1. In 1976, Jim Mreen purchased Toklat Originals, consisting of a couple of vans filled with one brand of equestrian gear, CoolBack. Over the next few years the company quickly expanded into a huge manufacturing and distribution facility located in Lake Oswego, Oregon.
  2. Toklat consults with leading horse experts and product designers whose expertise goes into the products they make. Many products have been tested and endorsed by top horsemen and women in both the English and Western communities. Today they manufacture and distribute over 30 brands, including CoolBack, WoolBack, Medallion, SuperQuilt and Premium Southwest.
  3. Recognized world-wide, Toklat employs a number of talented individuals who are not only experts in their respective equine disciplines, but also have a passion for everything horse-related. Before a product hits the stores, it has been tried and tested to ensure that it performs to the rigorous Toklat standard.
  4. The company sponsors award-winning Dressage, Eventing, Jumping, Endurance and Western teams as well as clinicians like Julie Goodnight, the popular RFD-TV host of Horse Master.
  5. Origins of their name: Toklat is a location in the Denali National Park of Alaska and the name of the river that runs through it. Pronounced toe•klat, the name comes from the Tanana Indian language meaning “cloudy white water”; a result of the ice and snow melt. The area is home to the Toklat grizzly, a powerfully built bear with long, thick hair, a striking pale golden body and chocolate-colored legs.

Cascade is proud to feature Toklat Originals, a company dedicated to helping equestrians pursue their passion through premium products.
