A BRIEF IDEA ON HORSE TACK A horse tack happens to be a piece of accessory or equipment that is equipped on the horses while choosing to use them as the domestic animalsfortable for the horse as well as the rider since improperly fitting saddles could create pressure points on the back muscle of the horse thereby causing it to feel immense pain and getting both itself and the rider face some serious injury. Several types of saddles of saddle exist and each is specific with the purpose for which it has been developed. They are generally divided into two main types- the western saddles and the English saddles basing on the discipline of riding in which they are used for. The other different saddles like the Australian saddles, racing saddles, endurance saddles and the side saddles do not fit into any category. The various saddle accessories are the surcingle, crupper, breeching and the breastplate. The stirrups are the supports for the feet of the rider which hang on either side of saddle. The stirrups offer great stability to the rider but may have safety issues as well as the rider’s feet could get easily stuck in it. Thus when a rider gets thrown away from the horse but still has one foot caught up in the stirrup, the rider could get badly dragged away when the horse runs away. To reduce the chances of occurrence of such risks, the rider could take a number of precautions for oneself like wearing riding boots with heel and smooth sole. Some saddles like the English saddles have the safety bars which allow a stirrup leather for falling off the saddle when being pulled backward by the falling rider.
