Show off your pretty tack!

Okay let's see all your beautiful tack! I'll go first with my new Weaver leather texas star browband headstall!

Hey, I had that one!  Got that and the Billy Cook Texas Star barrel saddle.  lol, now I'm all bitless and treeless.  Less is more, I guess.  I feel so organic, Biirkenstokey, ya know?  These Kansas people are gonna make fun of me.  "Yep, SHE'S from California."

LOL Hippie!

Don't have any right now, just kinda a utility gal.  I do have a new saddle, like Bit's, in transit!  Will post pics when it comes

Not anything too fancy but I'm fond of my matching halter/saddle pad/plaid shirt. I have some purple splint boots somewhere too.

My new Cashel saddle and pad.  I have a pretty neat headstall, but don't have a picture of it and am going to get a better bit.  Here's the saddle, though:

Well, I THOUGHT I had a nice headstall!    Yours is very lovely!  I'll have to get a picture of mine when I get my new bit.  I'm going for a French link snaffle, probably an eggbutt.  Your bit is pretty cool looking!

Thanks! I was in need of some hormonal shopping release, and I was craving bling for some reason.

And I love all you guys' pics too! Lovely pic, Gismo! And I want a redo pic WITH the purple splint boots, plaid-girl!!

Ya that's a metalab sweet iron with copper inlay bit, I thought I was getting a good deal on it for $32, then I saw it for ten bucks less in an online catalog! Oh well!

I love the saddle too! It's extremely comfortable, which is saying a lot since I've been riding in dressage and endurance saddles for a long while now.  Western saddles often feel constricting and uncomfortable to me.  The saddle I started Dakota with (she's only been started under saddle for a little over a month) didn't fit nearly so well, and since we got this one, we are able to focus on learning the basics and not trying to keep her from rolling to get me, and the saddle, off her back!  LOL  I'll definitely take more pictures soon.  I'll get the hubby to do it!

You made that?  Wow, very nice.  Could you post a photo when you get it on her bridle?  I'd love to see where you place and it and how it hangs, etc.  I want to make something for my girl's bridle.

Went a little crazy this pm and made three for her.  I put it on her bridle and will post a pic tomorrow when I tack her up.

pretty! just be sure it can't bounce her in the eye!
jackspark

Thanks for the tip, not sure I'd have thought to try that out first.......will do!
jackspark

Well, I showed it to her and she rolled her eyes and said that it looked like somethin her mother would wear So I put it on her mother's bridle and am makin somethin a little more hip for her.........  She IS kinda young for the classy, sophisticated charms; maybe some hemp and beads would be in order?

i vote for bling. swarovski crystals are way in for the young crowd.

We aren't allowed any bling.  The bling is supposed to be the horse.  That doesn't mean you can't get some pretty stitching or leatherwork though, just nothing shinny.   This is Zar in her show bridle:



Oh yea..her eye doesn't look like that.  It was the flash that blued it.

And Diablo in my other show bridle:

jackspark

Ok, so I tried again and this time she said it looked like somethin Fischer Price spit up.   I guess I'll go with Erin's suggestion swarovski crystals surely that will agree with how she sees herself
