CHEAP NH equipment

I'm not sure if anyone knows about this sight, so I thought I'd share it with everyone who wants the "Parelli" type tack but doesn't want to spend unreasonable amounts of money. I just bought a halter and lead for less than half the price I bought my Parelli halter and lead for (including shipping). The halter and lead matches my Parelli ones exactly. The only slight difference is the rope is a tiny bit thinner (not much at all) and the halter might be a hair (if that thicker). I also bought the barrel reins. They are really nice and soft. Not thick at all. The site has more variety - color choices and sizes. I really like it. Sorry if something like this has been posted already:) E&M Natural Horse Training - (Powered by CubeCart)

I'm not into the Parelli thing, but knock-off stuff is great.

I have the Sprenger knock-off jointed stirrups, and they work just as well as the expensive, big name ones.

If you're careful and make sure the quality is good, the knock-offs can save you a lot of money.

Speed Racer: Do you know where you got those stirrups or what the brand is? I've been looking for those! :)

Horsea, the ones I currently have are made by Metalab. You can also get them made by Stateline Tack. I've had both, and they're both very well made.

I LOVE jointed stirrups, and don't ever plan to go back to hard irons.

They make it so I can ride for hours now without having to pay the price by pain in my ankles and knees, like the hard irons.

Just make sure you go one size up from your regular irons, so your foot can clear the rubber joint covering. I get the 4.75" when I buy jointed, because I always used 4.5" in hard.

Where's the starry-eyed love emoticon? That's how much I love my jointed stirrups!

Here's a website where you can find them:

Trust me, once you go jointed you'll never want to ride in a hard iron again!

Lol! Thank you! I've been looking for some because I hear people love them but I don't really want to spend 300+ for stirrups.

I've ridden in both the HS and the knock-offs. To me, they feel the same.

Like you, there's no way I was going to pay $200+ for a pair of stirrups!

Besides, if you don't like them, and some people don't, you won't have paid a boatload of money for them.

Another site (for western people mostly) is: halfcircleranch.com . The headstalls are great - better then my $80.00 ones.

Anyone who rides English and wants a decent training/trail riding/foxhunting bridle with reins, try the Kincaide brand.

I've bought Kincaide for years and they're very well made bridles. They usually run around $50.00-$80.00, and the reins are laced. They come in black, havana, and chestnut.

You can't show a horse in them, but for everything I mentioned above, they're great bridles for not a lot of money.
