Saddle up folks! Here’s the quickest horse riding lesson under the sun. Guaranteed. But do take this quickie lesson by the bridle bit and take this lesson on horse tack a detailed gallop or two further. So, at this point of the lesson would anyone care to hazard a quick guess as to what horse tack entails? No? Still not sure? Come on now! A clue or two has already been given. Sit in a little closer and do pay careful and clever attention.
Right at the beginning, you were invited to saddle up. Saddle up. The saddle. It is the thick, leather seat that will be tied snugly around your horse’s torso. And of course, you will be sitting in it, comfortably so as you proceed to take your first formal horse-riding lesson. The bridle bit. Or just the bridle. This is the necessary bit that is needed to tie that saddle comfortably around the horse’s torso.
And there you go! The lesson is just about complete. The above-mentioned saddle and bridle bit are two important components of your horse tack. And that is what horse tack entails. It concerns all essential items that complete the horse-riding experience for both horse and its rider. What other items do you think should be included to the horse tack inventory? Come on now! Giddy up! Think-think!
The horse’s reins, that sounds pretty important. More important where you are concerned; the riding helmet. Never leave the stable environment until it’s leather belt is tied snugly around your chin. What else comes in genuine leather? Your horse riding boots of course! Finally, because there’s another lesson due, note that the clothes, comfortable clothes, mind you, that you will be wearing, also forms part of your horse tack.
