Thread: What does this piece of tack do?
I thought I would make a thread for where people can post pictures and ask questions as to what that piece of tack does. I'm sure I am not the only rider who has seen or owns a piece of tack which they do not know the purpose of.
I have a pair of boots (for a horse) which I do not know the use for, and will upload a picture when I get time, but for now I am interested to see what others want to know about certain pieces of tack - hopefully we will get some insight from others on the forum.
So... What do you want to know about certain pieces of tack?? Post away! Can be as simple as "What are bell boots used for" to above and beyond.
People already do that.
I thought I'd make a thread for everyone to be able to post in - instead of mutliple threads on the same wave link. Sorry... I thought it would be a good and educational idea.
Thank you for doing it.
Thanks, Shropshirerosie :-)
I'll go first.
Could this bit, a JP Korsteel Racing Dee Snaffle Bit, be used as a normal snaffle?
What is the difference between this 'Racing' bit and other snaffles?
I'm asking because I would like to buy this bit eventually for using on a bridle I bought this morning - I like the 'Dee' design, compared to your average snaffle.
Found this description on another website:
The JP Curved Design
Sorry if I am a bit uneducated - I've been riding for a year and handling horses for longer, but never been educated much to do with the tack (apart from tacking up, checking the fit and what some tack pieces are used for).
There are several different ring shapes for Dee-ring snaffles. The racing dee is just one of the shapes, not a descriptor specifying the snaffle's use.
I have one. I like them for young horses. Little classier than a full cheek but still has lateral pressure to assist with turning. I also have one with the Western dee design [though it is an English bit] which I also like.
Thanks for explaining that to me Blue Eyed Pony :-). I thought that would be the case - thanks for clarifying my thoughts.
Thanks, Blue Eyed Pony. Glad you've found something that works for both you and your filly.
Does anyone else have a question to post about any piece of tack, regarding what it is used for and the like? :smile:
