"Shady Shelters is a family operated business and is 'Woman Owned', with members of the family 'working' in the manufacturing process. Marshel is the 'inventor & designer' of the shelter and the Vice President. Richard Eaton is the General Manager, and our daughter works in the manufacturing department, along side her Dad. Any of us would be happy to answer any questions you may have.
We take pride in the unique product that Marshel has designed and that we manufacture. We have personally been using the Shady Shelters since 2004. Marshel continued to perfect the shelter and it was patented in 2009, and we started selling them the same year."
Marshel and Ann Warren have owned, bred, trained and worked with their Arabian horses for over 25 years. Like many horse owners, their horses become close friends, sharing their daily lives.
Marshel started developing the idea for the Shady Shelter, as a way
to provide shelter for a quarantine paddock. It further was developed into the portable shelter that it is today, to be used for protection from the elements, both at their ranch, and while on hunting and trail riding trips in the Rocky Mountains west of Berthoud, Colorado. The shelter can also be used as a permanent shelter.
The sudden thunderstorms that seem to occur in the Rockies almost every afternoon each summer can dump heavy rain and hail on everything exposed, and everyone runs for the cover of trucks, trailers, or even the trees close by. Everyone, that is, but the horses, mules and other livestock inside the portable corrals - livestock that would normally be able to move into the trees for shelter.
Marshel's desire to protect his horses prompted him to start developing this light-weight, truly portable, easy to set up, AND very sturdy shelter. This shelter, is truly a unique product, and is now available to you, for a very affordable price.
