I will be getting rosie in a couple weeks so I need tack for her. I hopefully will be getting her a saddle and bridle for Christmas but for now we will just use one of the saddles and bridles we already have. But I need help knowing what to buy :(. She is a 15hh Appy/Arab mare. I think she is a medium tree in english, the guy wasn't sure. She is being ridden in a sweet iron, loose ring, single jointed snaffle. She is totally resistant to pressure, it takes her forever to give in and sometimes she won't turn one way. What bit should I get for her? He also rides her with a running martingale(do I need that? He uses it because he did western pleasure as a kid/teen and he feels more secure with it.). I am looking into a wintec 500 with elastic girth. What type of stirrup irons should I get? I will be doing mainly just pleasure stuff with her and hopefully some jumping once she is riding well. Do I need any boots for her? Anything else I need tackwise?
Thanks in advance,
