Quiz me?

I'm hoping to apply for a job at my local tack shop soon, and I'd like to test my knowledge on tack and such beforehand. :)

Could you guys ask questions you think I'd be faced with? Like uses of tack, asking for reccomendations....just to test me.

Thanks in advance!

Be prepared to answer a lot of "Which brand do you prefer and why" questions...I ask these pretty much everytime I go to the tack store

I think I've got that pretty much down pat, mainly because I was the person asking that question when buying all of my tack. ;)

What do you recommend for a horse that over reaches?

My horse has a sensitive mouth, what do you think, bit wise, I should try with her?

Should I buy this in navy or green?

What's your favorite tack cleaning product?

Can these clippers handle a bridle path or are they more for little bits of facial hair and ears and whatnot?

How do I measure what size girth my horse needs?

Should I get a girth in leather, neoprene, or synthetic?

Do these bit wipes really work?

I'm really confused about these helmets.. I'm usually a size X but when I try size X, it pinches my head. Can you help me figure out why?

Does this fly mask come in a size XXL?

Do you think I should get a rope hay net.. won't his feet get caught up in it?

I'm looking for a grooming bag, could you tell me where they are located?

What are the sales like this season?

What's the middle piece of a french link or oval link DO?

What stirrup leathers are safe and strong enough for jumping? Mine just broke and now I'm worried about my safety.

I'm trying to get a gift for my friend, she really loves eventing. What do you recommend? I have a reasonable budget.

Will that do?

If you need any more, let me know! I am such a busy body at tack shops haha. I know nada!

Any more you can think of throw 'em at me! I just answered all of the questions out loud to myself and I believe I sounded confident and like I knew what I was talking about.

I just bought my kid a horse. I was told to come here & buy some "tacks". Ok after I buy these "tacks" from you, where do we stick them into the horse?

Do people actually ask that? Oh my, alright, at least I'm good at speeches ....

Let's see....

I have leather reins, and without any gloves I can grip fine. But it's cold out and I need a pair of gloves so my hands don't freeze off but I don't want my reins slipping! Can you help?

What's the best saddle for a mutton withered horse?

Do you have any organic treats? If so, which ones do you think I should give my horse?

I know this sounds silly.. but I have no idea how to wrap polos. Would you show me?

What kind of a halter do you think would look best on my Bay TB?

What does a martingale do? Are there more than one kind? I've heard of running martingales and that's about it.

Should I get leather half chaps or stick with synthetic? Does one clean up better than the other?

Do you carry any stock pins? Where do they go on the show shirt?

I'm trying to find a trainer, do you know of anyone that you would recommend? I primarily ride Western pleasure but I really want to get into reining.

What's the deal with spurs? I've heard that they're used to make the horse go faster. My horse is really lazy, should I get them?

Hey I like your boots! What brand are they? Do you carry them here?

I've heard that most dressage horses wear a crank bridle... that thing looks CRAZY! Do they do something or is it just to clamp the horse's mouth shut?

Do you guys have plaid breeches? Or plaid blankets? Or plaid everything? My horse looks FAB in plaid!

My horse needs to have his feet "soaked" and my vet wasn't very clear with me.. is there some sort of solution that I have to soak the foot in? Um.. how do I soak a horse's foot?? I'm freaking out!!!!

I AM SO MAD.. My dang horse ran me across a wall in my arena and scuffed my favourite boots! Do you have any kind of... polish or something? I have a show tomorrow!!!!

I'm entering my first dressage test this summer.. I have no idea what colours are acceptable or what I need to wear. Can you help me??

Do you know if this bridle is made of quality leather? I don't plan to show but I want something that lasts and something that looks nice.

Okay I'm officially fried with asking questions xP Hope that helped.
