I love my little guy - I really do. What I don't love is trying to find tack for him. I'm currently on the search for an inexpensive beater western saddle for getting him started and I'm not having any luck. I have a dressage saddle that fits, but I would MUCH rather use a western saddle. I'm also looking for a better surcingle with more rings on it. There's only one I've found that even halfway fits him with a pad underneath it, and the rings don't go low enough.
Then, there's finding bridles, bits, blankets, boots, etc, etc. It seems like the only way to get exactly what will work is to spend oodles of money and pay almost double from local tack stores. Ugh!
Are there any young Arab owners out there who can relate? If so, what are your solutions?
