Tack Endurance

After 50+ miles of trotting and cantering (or even just 25 miles for LD's), we all know our tack is important for making sure our horses are comfortable and pass their vet checks. What do you use??

My gear includes:
  • HAF pad
  • Zilco halter-bridle combo, martingale, and breast collar
  • Cantle saddle bag
  • Wool girth strap
  • EZ ride stirrups with a cage
  • And a cheap English saddle that fit my Arabian, so I figured it'd work as long as I stuck in it! (I'm purely a western rider haha) - I installed one of those "oh shoot" leather straps
And everything is all color-coordinated of course - Royal Blue!!

I have my leather half chaps and need to get some riding tights soon - I'm looking at Irideon Issential tights at the moment. Right now, I just have my jeans, which I just put a nice tear in last time I got up on my 15.1 hand mount lol.

Hey, I ride in a HAF pad as well! Sensation english trail saddle (best saddle ever) w/ synthetic webbings stirrup "leathers" and breakaway stirrups....and an english camelot leather bridle w/ a snaffle bit :)

A horse is the projection of peoples' views about themselves--strong, powerful, beautiful--and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existance.

look at all you fancy folks :)

i am currently still training and working in my synthetic wintec western saddle, a fleece pad with leather lining, a regular western headstall with bit and curb chain to start off with and then change over to a hackamore after he settles, a breast collar, sometimes given the terrain add the flankset, saddlebag, and water bottle, and always carry 2 rope halters and extra reins i can use a lead as well.

if i find i like the sport i will invest in the proper tack :)

Whatever works for your horse is 'proper tack!!'

I think that is part of why i love endurance.. there is no requirement for tack, so you can get creative and find what works best for your horse, you, and your budget.

Joe, where do you get the rope you make your halters from? I am tossing around the idea of making one for Dream, but all I can find is horrible stiff rope. I don't even want any fancy colors, just black.

phantom go to a tractor supply or home dept or an outdoors store that sells rope. feel out what rope you like best. i like using the thin white rope usually used for clothes lines. very flexible and sturdy and my horses love it. i buy it in rolls pre cut at 50ft and split it 2 and make to halters out of it. i don't use that for the leads though i buy thinker rope for that with clips

edit: another good thing i like about the white rope is you can dye it any color you want :)
