  1. Horse Tack and Equipment
    What do you think should contain the best bridle? What are you missing, what would you change or add. Every answer is important to me. :gallop:
  2. Horse Tack and Equipment
    I could really use some advice on where to find a rider that would appreciate some tack that was never really used. Are there any good on line sites that would bring together riders looking for good equipment?

    I'm in the process of having a bridle custom-made for my pony. We do low-level dressage and occasionally some local hack shows. The bridle will be brown, probably in an Australian Nut kind of brown. I have reached the time where I need to make a choice. Flat or stitched noseband. The pony is...
  4. Horse Tack Reviews
    I'm looking for a bridle for a medium-sized (13.2hh welsh/arab) pony, in a nice brown, ideally with just a plain cavesson noseband, for dressage. I tend to shy away from anything too 'glitzy'. I've found Schockemohle bridles, but don't really know much about them. They don't seem to make...

    Hey guys, I have a rising 4yo mare who is an absolute pain to bridle! she's 16.2hh and I am very short, and she definatley takes advantage of this fact lol. She puts her head up when I try to put the bit in her mouth but doesn't really last more than a few seconds, the main issue is that she...
  6. Horse Tack and Equipment
    With college approaching and my horseback riding days coming to an end, I have a lot of tack to get off my hands! All the tack is super cheap, and prices are negotiable. It is all listed on ebay, and I will provide a link to a saddle I am selling which will allow you access to the rest of the...

    On a recent post about hackamores in dressage I saw a picture of an english jumper and it looked super cool and later found out that it is called a war bridle or an Indian war bridle. They looked SUPER cool (especially with feathers) so I went online and I found like a billion different sellers...

  9. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Hey there, I recently bought my first horse, CJ. He is 15.2 and quite calm but affectionate. The people I bought it from practice some not-so-horseman-like behavior, but I did not know that at the time of purchase. They had him in a Tom Thumb, and I have heard virtually nothing good about TTs...

    I know this might be kind of a stupid question but I'm wondering would it be possible to paint an english saddle with leather paint? (and have it look good and stay on?) I've painted some bridles and headstalls with leather paint and added some interesting designs to it, and I know that might...
  11. Western Riding
    Hello, I have been riding English for 8 years, but have recently become interested in Western (mainly for trail riding). I am potentially interested in purchasing a western bridle, but have no idea where to start for bits. I own three English bits that I change out for my mare occasionally. I...
  12. Horse Tack and Equipment
    I'm interested in trying to make a war bridle just for the sake of trying something new with my horse. Does anybody know how to make the ones that are just in the mouth? I've tried googling, but haven't come up with much besides pictures. It wouldn't be a regular method of riding so please don't...

    Not looking for anything in particular at the moment, but just curious of peoples opinion on what is the 'kindest' bit for a horse and why-- or bitless bridle also!
  17. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Just wondering if anyone has any good facts or tips about the 'sidepull' bitless bridles. I've been considering putting my boy in a bitless bridle for a while now, and I've heard Warwick Schiller starts young horses in them. I'm not sure about the mechanics of the bridle just yet though and...
  18. Horse Health
    I've owned a horse that has a bit of a shacking head problem for about two years and have for some reason only now heard of Shakinghead Syndrome. My horse only shakes his head repetitively when wearing a bridle, it always seamed to me that forelock/mane hairs touching his ears was what bothered...

    Please post what you know about hackamores or bitless bridles and what ones you have used and liked. I am looking into getting some type of flower hackamore for my horse such as the zilco flower hackamore. Haven't ever used hackamores or bitless bridles, have ridden in just a halter, and I...

    Sorry if this is in the wrong place! Kind of fits into a lot of categories. Anyway... Had a little bucking today and wondered if it could be connected to the fact that today is also the first day in several years that my mare has been ridden with an actual bit in her mouth. Since I bought her...
