The world of tack. How great tack is. I love tack. However, it's not what it's all made out to be. When we buy tack at a tack store, the way it comes is the way we expect it to work on the horse. How about an instruction booklet with the tack. I still haven't seen one. I've also seen whole bridles in the tack store put together wrong. I know it, but how many other people know it? Or how about what certain pieces are for? Unless someone knows what it does, how should they know they should buy it. Now it's not the tack manufacturers problem that people don't do their homework ahead of time, but is it really the buyer's problem that there's no instruction booklet? I think it's a little of both. People need to be informed of how a piece of tack works before purchasing it, and the manufactuer needs to let the publis know how it work too. So before you buy that piece of tack, know how it works, what it does, what the outcome should be, and how to adjust/fit it so that it is the best for your horse.
