 We want to be the company that partners with you to help your horse get the protection it needs from harmful UV rays. Here's our story...

 After owning bay horses for years, the arrival of our paint foal with a lot of white hair and pink skin, especially around his eyes and on his face, brought us to a new way of thinking about horse care. Our veterinarian told us he would certainly have a high potential for eye and skin cancers unless we found some way to protect him. This led Yvonne on a search for a way to protect our youngster. Unable to find a satisfactory product on the market at the time, she designed and created our own, the Equine Sun Visor.

 Designed with our vet's input, Yvonne set about creating a mask that would provide the protection our young paint horse would need for his entire life.  After many of our friends asked us to make one for their horses, we thought we should make the mask available to more people. That was in 2009. Our product is so unique, we applied for and were granted a patent. Now, more than ten years later, the Equine Sun Visor is sold worldwide. Our horse, Indy, has worn one since early on in his life, is now 14 years old and still cancer free.  When a customer informed us her horse had a greater need, being diagnosed with Equine Head Shaker's Syndrome, we worked together to develop the ESV MAXX in late 2013. The Equine Sun Visor, the ESV Plus, and the ESV MAXX have all earned the favor of many equine Ophthalmologists and Veterinarians in the USA and around the world.

  Dandy Products, was started in 2009 as the vehicle to manufacture and market the Equine Sun Visor.  In 2013, the name was changed to EquiTek.  It is still family owned and operated by Dale & Yvonne Cates.  We're proud to say all our products are, and have always been, made entirely in the U.S.A.

 We strongly believe we have a responsibility to positively affect our society and give back to our community. EquiTek is a committed contributor to the fund raising needs of the Equine Cancer Society and provide discounts to Equine Rescues and Organizations with NPO status.  We measure our success by the feedback we receive on how one of our products has helped a customer's horse.  Those can be read on our Customer Feedback link as well as on our Facebook site. We do what we do to make a difference...helping you help your horse. 

 Thank you for your interest in the Equine Sun Visor, the ESV Plus, and the ESV MAXX, we truly believe these products will add a new dimension of comfort and protection for your horse.
