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 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. KO Trading’s high quality Western leather products and spectacular line of trophies, awards, hardware and accessories have been the choice of Entertainers, Celebrities, Ranchers, Businessmen and Professional Horsemen from coast to coast.

KO Trading features an online store as well as our storefront location in Fort Worth's Stockyards Station; both have rapidly growing product lines. In addition to the store and online shopping cart, KO Trading maintains a rigorous trade show schedule.  Shows where KO Trading brings products to the industry include the Dixie National Equine Expo, National Cutting Horse Association’s Super Stakes, Eastern and Western National Championships, Summer Spectacular and Futurity, The American Quarter Horse Association and Youth Association World Shows, Music City Futurity and World Championship Paint Horse Show.
