Hey all, I'm Anna 18, soon to be 19 and figured I could squeeze in here! Nice to meet everyone here, it's good to have people my age to talk to! (: I have two horses, an 11 year old QH Arab gelding named Charlie and a one year old paint colt named Scotch onthe Rock, aka Rocky. Have been riding since I was little, training a few here and there, showing, and starting endurance!

Now I have a question for you all, I'm a perfectionist when it comes to my tack. When I get something it HAS to match and it's killing me. I get something in one color and have to have the rest to make a set! HELP ME. Lol. Do you think mis-matching tack looks alright? Not for showing but just for fun! I'm on the wild side. Charlie's got a zebra saddle pad, black boots, tie dye bells, and a darker leather bridle with neon braided reins. Just me?! I'm beating myself up over having it match, but I kind of like throwing it all together.

I'm pretty matchy-matchy. I think it runs in a barrel racer's blood...At least down south! lol All about the bling, the colors, and the matching.

I prefer to match my stuff, but I also like mismatched stuff that goes together!

I like my tack to match a bit, but I've always stuck to the 'safe' side - black, black, black. I think it looks really sharp on my ghost-pale grey mare though. However I am considering shaking it up a little... I need a new saddle pad anyway, and there's one I like that comes in pink with black wear leathers. So my all-black ensemble might just get a little splash of pink. Still on the fence about it though.

ThirteenAcres - what kind of custom tack? I'd love to see what you do! Do you have a web site or anything?

Right now I'm focusing on custom crystal halters, the belt style headstalls, and any kind of customized nylon tack.

I do not have a website yet. Right now I'm working on making some examples of what I can do to make a website. For now I'm just taking small orders and charging supply cost without labor to be able to get some examples made up.

Greetings all :)

Failbhe, I reckon I'm going to be the same when I have my own horse. I love the look of black leather tack. I love the smell of leather! But I reckon a snazzy saddle pad would dress it up. Or I can remain old school and stick with white haha.

BUT if you have a black saddle you've gotta have a black bridle. Same with brown. Oh, and leather saddle, bridle and stirrup leathers - no mixing synthetic and leather. Don't know why but if just irks me.

lol you'd not like my friend and I then! We had Sky in a dark oil western saddle.. and a black and white english bridle xD It was terrible ahahaha. Now he's got the same saddle but a light oil headstall Oh myyyy. Soon we'll be coordinated though!

lol right now i have a synthetic blue saddle, with black on it, i love it with a sky blue saddle pad. unfortuantly when i sold my horse i had to sell the bridle i used with him because his hackamore wouldn't fit on her bridle, so i am stuck with a brown bridle. BLUCK! but i love matching.

thirteen acres! i would definitely be interested in a belt style headstall :)

I'm happy to see another military horse person!! With that being said, boy do I have quesions for you! lol I have two horses and my husband just enlisted in the air force and i'm tearing myself up thinking i'm not going to be able to bring them. I currently live in St. Louis, MO my home state. Was it difficult to move them with you each state? Love to hear back!!! :)

Oh and i'm 21 and live in St. Louis, MO. I pay way too much for my board living in the city and it just sucks. I have two of the most wonderful horses! Definitely nothing alike though.

=D Well I can certainly make one for you. Really, your imagination is the limit. I have ordered zebra dyed belts...ostrich...patterns like skulls or music notes. Pretty much anything you can imagine.
