Importance of A Good Saddle And Tack Fit

The horse tack that you choose is going to determine the overall comfort for your horse. In addition, the horse tack will either aid or hinder your horse in its ability to perform its function and purpose. You will have to make a decision between two different styles of tack, Western and English. These two forms are very different. English saddles and tack are specially designed to press on certain pressure points of the horse. This allows the owner to train the horse to respond in a specific way in response to pressure on one of the pressure points. Western tack, includes all of the traditional riding styles and is most likely what you are looking for.

The majority of people looking for horse tack are going to want the more traditional Western trail tack. This includes a Western saddle that is comfortable for both the rider and most importantly the horse. It’s really important to get the right fit for the horse, because the wrong weight displacement could cause permanent injury to your horse. There’s nothing worse than to be stuck in the back country with a lame horse. If you can achieve a good fit with your horse, then the horse will feel good and have more energy to travel farther distances and greater speeds. Comfort and a good fit are everything, when fitting your horse with good trail saddles and tack.

So, only use an egg butt snaffle bit with the proper instruction of a professional trainer. There is a right way and a wrong way to use this style of bit.
