  1. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Hey everyone, I have an older dressage tack set for a draft horse. It has been in the barn for years and is extremely dirty. I want to clean it up but not sure the best way short of a pressure washer. Can I soak it in a tub of warm water? Its not a saddle. Its everything from the bridal to...

    Hello! I saw some used Freejump Soft Up Pro stirrups on ebay and purchased them for a good price. I was excited because of the reviews and blogs I have read about them online (I understand that many blogs are really paid advertisements). However, when I brought them to my barn my trainer says...

    I have an English saddle that is really light brown in color, and I for the life of me cannot find a bridle to match it. They are all just too dark! So, I know you can dye Western saddles (as black dyed saddles are really "in" right now) but can you dye an English saddle? I know I wouldn't want...

    Does this bit seem too big? Bought the size she wears in her snaffle but I'm not sure. I've always ridden my molly in a snaffle. She wears a 5" and always has. I bought a correction bit to try her in, also a 5". There's a little bit of mouthpiece showing at the edge of her mouth. Is this a...

    Theres this website that is called Bridles & reins and has a lot of tack that you could call "custom" because you can choose the colour, (black, Dark brown, Medium brown, Light brown) size and hard wear (steel, brass) for a pretty decent price. this sounds great and all but the overall quality...
  6. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Hello, I am currently looking at a saddle to buy but know nothing about the brand. It is a Dakota with new blevins, new conchos, new d rings, and was apparently professionally conditioned and oiled. I dont know if theyre good quality or what it would be worth. I couldnt get pictures on here so...
  7. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Hello, I just bought a second-hand CTK endurance saddle that has a 3 point rigging set up and I was wondering if I can cinch it like a western saddle (which I guess means ignoring the back ring and just using the one under the fender) or do I have to buy a converter to make it work with a...

  9. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Hi, just wondering if this saddle looks right to y'all? Considering buying it as it's very cheap. Not needed for excessive riding, just for mucking around on a pony. It was suggested that it's be okay for lead line but not hard work. Opinions? Do I spent the $20 or pass? Thanks in advance...

    Hey guys. So I finally managed to find a saddle that actually fits my mare, but now I need to find a pad for it. I know it's an endurance saddle, but that's it. There wasn't really any info given about the saddle when i got it either, and I'm not sure what pad to get to make sure it fits. Also...

    I am looking for a riding helmet. I've read that ASTM approved are a safe option but other than that I know very little about choosing a helmet. In my area, very few people wear helmets and I understand that it is a personal choice, but as an unskilled beginner I feel like I should at least give...

    Needing some help with western saddle shopping. Right now I'm looking to upgrade my saddle and get more a low-seat pleasure/equitation ride. I've been borrowing a friend's Blue Ribbon and it is insanely comfortable for my body. I can't afford a Blue Ribbon or Harris myself, even the work...
  13. Horse Tack and Equipment
    So I've got a bit of a problem. I've had my mare for 2 months now, and I still don't have a saddle for her >.< When I look on FB, they either are the wrong seat size, gullet size, or priced in the thousands. And it's the same story when I look on Kijiji and I don't get much in the way of...
  14. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Alright, so I've got a questions for you guys. What are some of the tack sites you guys shop at? Especially ones that have saddles for sale. I'm trying to find a saddle for my new mare that doesn't cost an arm and a leg and it's been rather challenging so far, especially since I don't live in a...
  15. Dressage
    so trying to buy a bridle from Dover. Found one I like but it has a crank noseband. I can't tell if the are allowed by USEF, as it says you must use a normal cavesson and not an "unconventional" one. However I cannot tell if a crank would be unconventional as long as I follow the two finger...
  16. Horse Tack and Equipment
    I have just purchased an ottb. I would like to give his legs the best support possible. He would be a pole and a barrel racing horse. I was wondering what brands are the best and what will give him the most support. Tia.

    Hi all! I have a Wintec pro stock 17" with fenders but i'm having trouble finding a saddle pad to fit it. i have a HUGE English pad which works; but it looks downright silly on him because its so big to accommodate for the saddles vertical length.. the straps to put the girth through are a big...
  18. Saddle Fitting Issues
    I'm going to be gaming along with ranch rodeos and i'm wondering which saddle type I should purchase for doing this? I don't like how far up a barrel saddle puts me but I also don't want to die going around a barrel (not that I really need the seat assistance, just a mental security thing I...
  19. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Despite riding for a good few years, I only recently got my own horse, and therefore my own saddle. The saddle is a T4 thorowgood 17” dressage saddle. It is part suede/leather look. I assume it would be fine to compete in especially when I’m just doing low level dressage with my mare, but are...
