If you have made the commitment to learning to ride horseback or if you are already a skilled rider, you may be considering some new accessories for your horse and even yourself. Read on for some suggestions about items that will help you improve your technique and your look.
The most obvious investment is new tack. Whether your ride is Western or English style, there is always the possibility of upgrading your horse’s saddle, bridle, reins, stirrups, and leathers. If you ride Western style, you might also select a new saddle blanket or saddlebags. For something different, you may even purchase an Australian saddle.
Along with new tack for your horse, you might be in the market for new apparel for yourself. Perhaps you’ve had your eye on a new pair of boots or some show clothing. You might even be interested in purchasing some casual riding apparel that announces your love for horses. As you shop for yourself, don’t forget to pick up a cozy new blanket for your horse.
Maybe you are more interested in purchasing some equipment to help you practice your horseback riding skills. If so, horse jump accessories might be just the ticket. Horse jumps come in a variety of sizes, colors, and styles that allow you and your horse to work together to improve your jumps. You could even construct a whole course with jumps of varying heights. If barrel racing is more to your taste, you could purchase a set of poles or barrels or training cones for practice as well as a timer.
Finally, you might break down and purchase some necessary stable supplies to help you care for your horse. A new feeder or waterer may be on the list or perhaps a nameplate or barn sign or even a new storage unit for tack. Don’t forget to buy a toy or treat for your horse, too.
Indeed, there are plenty of options available if you are ready to buy some new accessories for your horse.
