Need tack advice very bad.
So, the stable i currently have my horse at uses their own bridles, bits, and saddle on the horses to train them. The owner is currently ill, and i dont have any way of figuring out what kind of tack they use. Im moving my mare to a new stable in a week or two, but each boarder they have there, has their own tack. Which, in my opinion, is a good thing. But i need serious tack help. I dont know what type of tack is being used on her, and i need to buy some to be able to ride her at the new place.
The saddle is just a saddleseat saddle, i dont know what brand though. But for the bridles and bits, i have nooooo clue :/ The bit might be a curb bit? Maybe? She's a Tennessee Walking horse, so whatever type bit they normally use on the breed, is probably what she's using. But i dont know what type. And if someone could suggest a good bit, that suits her breed, and is going to be easy on her mouth, i'd greatly appriciate it!
And i was wondering, how well do you think a snaffle bridle would do on a gaited horse? I havent heard of one using one, but i was curious. I'll most likely just get a bit like she's using now, if i can figure out what it is, but i might look into a snaffle later on. Oh, anyone know of a good website to get pretty halters off of? Not the regular plain colored halters, but different designed ones. I'll be looking into that too.
Thanks in advance! Really want to learn up on this stuff so i know what im doing, and know that nothing will be causing my girl discomfort, but also be good to train her with (:
