Tack

June 28, 2007

When riding a horse/pony you usually use tack. There are (in my opinion) 2 main pieces of tack: the saddle and bridle. The saddle is put on the withers of the horse. There are a pair of stirrups located on both sides of the saddle which you put your feet in.

The bridle is leather and has a bit which the reigns are connected to. The bridle is used to steer the horse/pony.
