    1- Reins, commonly misspelled as riens or rains, are long, generally 7ft long leathers that attach to the bit and are used for direction and stopping while riding.

    2- Bridle, commonly misspelled as bridal, is a headpiece similar to a halter that your horse wears when riding. Bridal is more for use with weddings.

    3- Filly, commonly misspelled as philly, is a young female horse that grows into a mare.

    4- Appaloosa, commonly misspelled as apaloosa or apaloosea, is a breed of horse.

    4- Palomino, a COLOR like that of chestnut and dappled gray. A palomino is not a breed, although it has a color registration. You cannot have a purebred Palomino. You can however, have a purebred palomino Quarter Horse.

    GAH!!! That one drives me up the wall.

    Well, that and "my mare was bread last year" ... really? Really, was she? Hmm, I knew she was crummy, but not literally!

    .. sorry, that one even made me groan.

    Saddle- not saddel. I mean seriously! If you can claim your such a great horse person don't you think you could spell half of the terms?
