Show off your tack!

I thought I'd post a thread where people can show off their tack:). Here's mine I bought for my Paso Fino gelding last June:

This is my Wintec Western All-Rounder. I like it, despite the negative reviews I've gotten lol:



This is his breast collar....It's a red-brown color with silver on it. I actually found it at the Goodwill for $15! The gals in there had no idea what it was, nor that it was real silver. Anyway, what a bargain!:




This is my bridle....It's just a simple black Western headstall with a browband:


Here's the bit...it's an Imus Easy Gaited:

When I ride in the ring, I usually ride him in a snaffle with happens to be attached to a neon-blue bridel :) The breatplate I always use (custom made!).

This is the headstall I use on him on a regular basis (also custom-made). I don't use this bit anymore - I just haven't taken any recent pictures yet. The bit I use is a 6 inch TWH curb.

Saddle and pad - neon mint green does not go with blue! But whatever Saddle is a Big Horn. It has lasted great.

That is awesome! I have found some horse books/videos at goodwill for a great price but never tack! I wish I could find stuff like that in our Goodwill, once in awhile there is stray breyer horse but they are few and far between.
I would love to find some English show clothes at goodwill : )

Horses and children, I often think, have a lot of the good sense there is in the world.

I have a Collegiate Diploma, and a random assortment of bridles, haha :)
The one I usually use isn't stamped, so I'm not sure what the brand is, but I picked it up at a yard sale for only $30! :) It's super nice quality, very supple - obviously a pretty high-end bridle. I love it <3

I have an Antares Jumping Saddle



I have a Jeffries martingale that I got when my old martingale snapped in half lol and an Edgewood bridle that I despise, bought an Antares Hunter bridle which made my horses head look awful. So still in search of a show quality bridle that I don't hate .


Gordon Wright once told a student to take up swimming because he would never be a good rider, that rider was George Morris.

Woo Hoo.....Tack at Goodwill!!! I used to work for Goodwill - I was the director of computers and lots of stuff rolls through there. Good for you!!

Red has 3 saddles - a Billy Cook (they are actually replacing his Billy Cook with a brand new one but this is the one I have) he has a Steele Old Timer and a Down Under Wizzard Poley Aussie Saddle. Breast straps for all three, he has one bridle (my hubby took over my other bridle ) he has more saddle pads than even I can count! I think he has 6 or 7 saddle pads!

Why have you gotten negative reviews for your saddle?
