Dana Sibbet Announces New Venture



For more than a quarter of a century, we’ve all known the name Dana Sibbet to be synonymous with his family’s New Prague, Minnesota based Ra-Don, Inc.   As a young and aspiring industry professional, Dana quickly earned the trust and respect of the show horse community, most notably in the Saddle Horse, Morgan, and Arabian breeds as being “the go-to guy” to keep horses dressed in style - whether it be at home or on the road.  

As recently as last week, Dana bought out of his 49% ownership of Ra-Don, Inc. and that has allowed him to move forward with his new enthusiastic venture, “Appointments U.S.A.”  He takes with him several veteran employees and managers boasting over 60 years combined experience in the show horse industry.  

Dana’s personality and attention to detail have earned him the respect of the industry that he has loved since he was a young boy.  And in turn, Dana has provided great customer service to the community for the duration of his years at Ra-Don.

Under Dana’s direction, Ra-Don grew from more than just embroidered horse blankets, sheets, scrims, and tack drapes into a more full service horse show apparel and he began his own entity known as “Appointments U.S.A.”   Appointments USA will offer a full line of improved horse wear, accessories, stall draperies, and tack trunk related products.   

Still based in New Prague, Minnesota, Dana will continue on providing that same customer service, and craftsmanship of all the products we’ve known and trusted him to provide us with for these years.  That will not change.  Dana and his staff at Appointments U.S.A. are planning for the future with other innovative ideas and products for the industry. 

Dana looks forward to continued business relationships with many of his great clients over the years - and he and his knowledgeable staff  welcome the opportunity to work with new clientele. 

To contact Appointments U.S.A., you can call Dana directly at 952-250-5280; or email him at AppointmentsUSA@gmail.com
