Pictures of you in ''trail tack" ! :)

Does anyone care to post pictures of themselves and their horses when you're dressed up for trails? :P

No matter if the photo is taken on the trail, before or after, as long as the horses and your own ''tack'' is clearly visible :) Would be fun to see what you all use and dress like, saddles, breastplates, bridles, bits, clothes etc :) If you want you can write what you ride in when you don't ride on the trail.

I'll put one up as soon as I've emptied my camera and found someone to take a picture .P

Always keep your head up, but be careful to keep your nose at a friendly level.

This is how I dress for the trails...

That's all I ride in, because I only ride on the trails.

All I do is trailride...

I usually dress in jeans and a t-shirt (in winter it's a long sleeved shirt and jacket) and my cowboy boots.

My mare's trail get-up is her SMB II's, her saddle, double saddle-pads, her bhackamore of Tom Thumb (whichever I decide to use), and her halter and leadrope in case I have to tie her.

My gelding's trail get-up is his protective boots, his saddle, saddle-pad, 'snaffle' bridle, and his halter and lead in case I have to tie him.
(I don't have any pictures of him under-saddle uploaded)

Here's a more normal looking one Notice the small horn bag. I carry my camera, GPS, some horse and people treats, wet wipes
sun screen, chap stick...just anything I think I'll need for a day ride. Theres a water bottle on the other side too. I have a small leather pouch that stays on the saddle that has a horseman's knife and a few first aid things in it. The necklace I'm wearing I wear all the time is a small compass. I sometimes ride with a crupper and breast collar if we are doing lots of hill riding. She also has hoof boots on that you can't see.

Really depends on which horse I ride, where I go, temp, how lazy I am etc.

When it is really hot or I am being lazy and I ride one of my old broke horses, I ride like this.

However, if I am riding a green horse, if I have to do cow work, or if I intend to do some training or other similar work, I ride like this.
