    The barn I ride at isn't a boarding barn and nobody has their own tack, and the BO said I could have the stirrups and leathers, because they don't have English saddles and had no use for them.

    Kind of surprised everyone else on here just assumed you take without asking. Lol

    I love piecing equipment together. It's like finding some really cool piece of gear you needed at a yard sale or pawn shop. I love being resourceful.

    If you get a bridle pieced together, show a photo of it.

    Let me summarize:
    I ride at a Western barn, and it is a bit of a 'backyard' barn, but not exactly. It is at the barn owner's house, on 7 acres of land. It is not a boarding barn. The only horses that are there at the barn owners horses. Nobody has their own tack (except me) and I have an English saddle. I got this saddle used online and it didn't come with stirrups or leathers. The barn has someone's old English saddle in the tack room and the barn owner said I could have those leathers and irons. They have no use for that saddle.

    I was just looking around in the tack room when I saw a loose ring triple joint snaffle with a pair of reins attached to one end. It was in the very corner and they looked broken on one side. They are English laced reins. I also saw a cavesson noseband on a tack hook in the tack room.

    I was planning on asking the barn owner who's reins/noseband those are, and if they went with the saddle. I am going to ask her if it is alright that I clean them off just to see how they look. I am not planning on using them, I just think all tack needs some TLC from time to time. I was also going to look in the tack room to see if I can find the English headstall that goes with the cavesson and reins. I am not going to use this tack nor take it, just see if I can find all the pieces and clean it.

    I am like the master tack cleaner :) When we teach the camp kids how to clean tack, I am the teacher....but we don't often teach them. We are too busy doing something else. But I love cleaning tack! I need to make a mental nose to clean reins/bridles/breastcollars in the tack room this weekend (with the BO's permission, of course). The tack room is tiny, and stuff gets dusty easily.

    At least you have a tack room. My BO is building onto her barn, and currently there is no tack room. I got stuff at home, stuff in her horse trailer, stuff in her garage, its everywhere. I like cleaning tack as well. She had an old saddleseat saddle in the barn when I moved over there. When I got done with it, it shined like a diamond. :)

    At a camp that I was attending (advanced camp) at the same barn, I was looking in the tack room for saddles to clean and toting back one at a time to clean. I came across a 16 inch saddle COVERED in dust. I cleaned it off and used it. It was a nice saddle :)
