I need help picking tack.

How do you know if a piece of tack that you want to buy is appropriate and at a reasonable price for you to buy it? I am a beginner and my mom has recently bought me a horse! He's experienced and trained well so that whole "dont get a horse till your experienced thing" is important but we kind of just side stepped that because my horse and trainers are so great, I feel like we can take on the challenge. So back to tack. Which is the best for a Kentucky mountain saddle horse he's 15.3 hands tall and I was just wondering if there's a specific brand that sells good and sturdy but not quite expensive or luxurious. Because if im beginning to ride on my new horse I don't really need the most expensive saddle or best tack, I just need good ones. Also I ride English. Thanks for your time !

Depends on what you are going to do with the horse. Lots of decent tack out there and your KMH, doesnt need anythign special.

Id buy a biothane/ beta set from Moss rock endurance, easy wipe off and will last forever. The Weaver brand biothane set is ok as well but the hardware rusts. Wintec synthetic tack has more english options and looks pretty sporty.

If we're suggesting english synthetic tack, forget wontec, at least for their bridles. They're ugly as sin! :)
I would suggest the Tekna brand instead, much nicer looking, as well as more supple, around the same price as wintec, and more options too!

If there's a tack shop near you, I would suggest going and looking around. A lot of small tack shops will offer things used on consignment so you get them for cheaper.

Also, craigslist and facebook forums. I get a lot of my stuff used, it's still functional and in many cases with saddles easier because they are already broke in for you.
