You should see my tack room.
smrobs I do agree on the mechanical hackmore I only ride him in that when we're working on barrels cause he is alittle pushy not hard mouthed but hardhead otherwise for his every day riding I ride him in a traditional bosal hack. You can never have toom much tack so I have learned my old horse has about 7 diffrent bridles just depending on what we're doing depends on what I ride him in never know when you may need it again though but thank you for your comment
