I have leased for years. I have my own saddle that I have been able to use on most of the horses that I've leased, but usually use the saddle that comes with the horse. I bought my own bridle, though, and then used either their bit, or bought something of my own (with the owner's ok).

A new bridle might satisfy your desire to have some of your own tack.
okay. Thank you!! any suggestions for a bridle? Its an average sized horse. A thoroughbred. Maybe an arabian. :p

Concerning bridle and headgear you may ask the owners about size and fit, and what's worked in the past for your horse before you order and have to return or worse stuck with something you can't use.

If you happen to use rope halters, I can say that I really like my double diamond rope halter.

thank you. And I don't think I will get a rope halter. And I think I'm going to get the tough-1 great grip grooming stuff in red :)

It's exciting when there's a new horse on the horizon, so I can see why you're beside yourself.

As far as buying things on-line, I'd recommend Jeffers Equine, Valley Vet Supply, Chick's, and Schnieder's Saddlery. Stateline, SmartPak, and Dover can be kind of expensive unless they're having a sale, although I highly recommend SmartPak if you can get a good deal.

I have a TB, and tend to buy him full horse sized halters and bridles. The only issue I've had is that one bridle's noseband was too low, but I used my leather punch and put more holes in it, and now it fits fine.
alright. I will check them out. Thank you!

bridle, excited, leasing, new stuff, saddle
