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.

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?
