About Verstara - Horsehair Jewelry


How it Started

    VERSTARA began  in 2008 as a blanket cleaning & repair service, under the name of  The Pampered Pony. It began operating under the new name, VERSTARA, in  2017

   In 2011, the loss of a special horse name Seaver sparked the start of the horsehair jewelry business.

   As  time went on VERSTARA began to offer more variety in their jewelry. The  outstanding quality and craftsmanship put into each piece was not going  unnoticed.

   Soon  the jewelry became a full time business and the difficult decision to  drop a part of our service (the blankets!) and change the name, was made  to better accommodate our jewelry clients.


Meet The Artist

   COLLEEN McGALE lives in Sherwood Park, Alberta with her three beautiful girls and supportive husband Steve.

   While the kids do keep her very  busy, she still finds time to follow her passion of riding.  Colleen grew up riding dressage but fell in love with the sport of  barrel racing while trying to convince her non-horsey children to try  riding! Together with her mare Zara she's quickly progressed and were very successful together. In 2017 Zara suffered a broken shoulder while out in the field, she has since healed sound but prompted Colleen to take Zara to the dressage ring instead of the barrel pen.


Whats Next
