Rumba, it's probably so when they fall down cliffs, the rescue people can locate them by their bright neon tack and riding attire.

Endurance riders just don't 'do' color with their tack, their riding outfits are also quite violently colored.

I don't know if anyone posted this, but does anyone remember the tiger print Ansur that tried to sell on ebay for a couple of years? This is a $2,500 saddle new, all one color, that was being sold for $3,000-3,500 on eBay. I don't know if it ever did sell. Ansurs are treeless saddles that have a big following. If I ever had the cash, I'd buy one, or three, lol, but only in black or brown .

I agree, Endurance folks can get "fun."

Here's Courbette's new Endurance saddle, you can choose blue or red seat.



Notice the "nike" logo on this one, lol.


Lynn Palm pimps this one.












Most of the above are European endurance saddles. They seem even more "Fun" than us Americans in their saddles designs and colors, lol.

Endurance riders are like Tour De France riders; all decked out in bright, neon colors.

I do like those saddles, especially the first and fourth ones. That yellow and black one with the interesting stirrups is strangely fascinating.

The yellow and black one reminded me of Lance Armstrong XP

the biothane bridles need to "match" the colorful saddles.



Gaston Mercier makes some wicked colorful stuff:
Saddles, saddlery, Horse and riding equipments - Gaston Mercier saddlery - Aubrac, France

the lady that made my dressage saddle has designed an endurance saddle with a dizzying choice of rainbow colors. If only I had a horse suitable, I'd trick him out in rainbows.

Me and my tacky tack. I retired the pink saddle from Toby and got him another one, but Snickers still sports it .

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail...
