Are These Nylon Tack Sets Durable?

I'm looking for some new tack for High Five because I'm getting bored with plain ole brown. Just as well, I'm also in market for a new saddle, so I need to keep that in mind while picking out some tack.

I probably won't get a new saddle until my birthday (April 13), but I have enough saved up to buy some other things in mean time. I really don't want to purchase a leather tack set, because I use different saddles for different days, and none of my saddles are the same color.

Here are the ones I am looking at. If you could help me in deciding whether these are worth it or not, as well as picking out the best colors for my horse. He is a bay (the one in my avatar to the left) and gets just a wee bit lighter in the summer.

I'm pretty sure these are all made by either Abetta or Weaver, by the way.

Graphite Tack Set in either blue or lime green

Or

Sedona Tack Set in indigo blue


Thanks ahead.

I uses as much leather as I can with horses because it is more durable, safer and cleans better. All I can see those bright colors doing is getting dirty! They won't every be as bright and clean as when you first put them on your horse. If you are worried about matching, get black leather-it matches everything! I once bought a bright orange rope halter and it stayed bright orange for about two days.

As for the two choices, the sedona tack set looks like it is better quality.

I try to avoid leather breastcollars, headstalls, etc. because I change my mind so much as far as colors, and leather is just too expensive for me since I am paying for it myself. Plus, I'd much rather wash nylon than to have to oil and saddle soap leather.

Black doesn't match my brown horse or brown saddles.

Thanks for your opinion. I appreciate it. :)

Not going to lie, I think the colored tack looks "tacky". Probably just because I ride English and use all leather.. But I would get blue I I was you!

I appreciate your honesty! Haha. It's completely understandable. I've always been one of those people that looovveedd gaudy, loud tack. I get some funny looks considering I'm mostly a trail rider, but being I am on a bay horse, I need a little color. :)

I love the graphite stuff! But the bridles even in small never fit and you can't adjust it because of the rubbery stuff on the part that goes over the poll of the head and such. It's really frustrating.

I also prefer a nice rich, bright blue on a bay horse.

I have heard that the sizing on the Graphite stuff is odd and that it doesn't seem to fit average horses. Lilkitty is the second person to say something like that on here (I think the first was MacabreMikolaj).

Thanks for informing me of that.

I've read the same thing about Graphite not fitting well. If I remember correctly, a review I found of them on a website said the headstall was big enough for a draft.

I like nylon for it's cleaning, but there's something about the smell of leather that I loveee. Haha.
