Klint Owens graduated from Oklahoma State University in 1991 with a Bachelors Degree in Agricultural Economics. In 1992 he began designing and selling Equine Tack products based on his own extremely high personal standards. As a Cutting Horse competitor himself, he had his hand on the pulse of the competitive equine show industry’s equipment needs. The KO Trading Company was started in 1994, as the demand for his designs grew and he continued to add more products, KO Trading emerged as one of the leading Equine Tack suppliers.
