I grew up riding English but switched to Western ~20 years ago. I love a good Western ranch saddle.

My absolute favorite style of tack is what I would call "classic" western. You know, the kind of stuff you see if you look up picture of horses in the '50's-'70's? Yeah... I like it when it's mostly just wide leather with small amounts of "bling", nothing too gaudy. It just seems super classy to me. And, I like the idea that you don't have to worry about it getting dirty since it really isn't that hard to clean.

What's your favorite style, CustomLegacy? :)

I just love the Arabian breast plates. I agree with not too much silver on the saddle, it just makes it heavier to life... especially if you have a tall horse, and your a short person.

Ranch type western. Stuff that is actually practical.

I loathe Western show saddles. Like the ones for WP that are covered in silver and have horns that look like I could pull it off with my bare hand. I think they're hideous.

But since I like to be loud and obnoxious and I like barrel racing, I have loud coloured tack. It's all purple!

I'm a dressage person myself and love the clean look of nice matching tack. Black bridle with black padding, laced reins, nice black saddle without the huge knee blocks. Or for a chestnut or light bay horse - brown tack.

Give me a vintage western using saddle over a show saddle covered in silver anyday. They just don't make 'em like they made 'em in the 50's, 60's and 70's anymore :)

I just LOVE nice black dressage tack... pitch black saddle and double bridle with the super wide nose band and a little bit of bling on the browband...ahhhh I just love thinking about it, lolol. I also for some reason LOVE those really fine thin arabian halters that the arabians always wear in pictures.... those are very pretty.......

Another vote for a set of nice, functional ranch tack. Simple, yet attractive and good quality.
