Yipes! Stripes!

Today I am showcasing tack inspired by the striped equid of the African savannah. Some of these are worse than others. Some are downright scary.



This one isnt so bad. For a trail riding or endurance bridle. It might be cute on a black horse.



This is a bit much, but overall not too bad.



Ok, Ok, I know these aren' t tack, but WOW. These are bull rider chaps. I sure hope whomever wears them is secure in his masculinity.



Woot! Stripey polos! It would drive me batty that the stripes wouldn't line up.



Now, I don't know about you guys, but I have never seen a Zebra this color!

  3. Oh God, those wonderful chaps reminded me of a story.

    When I was in high school, I worked at a tack shop that specialized in Western-wear: hats, boots, shirts, etc. We once had this skinny blond girl with fake everything come in and were wondering what she was doing there.

    She was looking for a pair of hot pink boots, preferably knee high, that she would wear on stage. Yup, she was a stripper.

    True story. Unfortunately I'll never forget it.

    OMG! You and me both! I am so glad I'm not the only one that OCD, by the way...

  5. What about that zebra from the fruit striped gum? LOL....
    I gotta email TTOTD a pic of our gator saddles in the store I work at.....in brown and blue....ugh....
    Meghan.....We have alot of those kind of girls come into our store looking for boots (we sell new and used western stuff) since there is a "Coyote Ugly"-type bar nearby and the manager sends all his girls to us.

  7. OMG. THE RAINBOW ZEBRA POLO THINGS. I want D: And they have lots of blue on them! I love shades of blue on my horsie, it brings out her gorgeous blue eyes! They would go well with her flower power halter :D

    We have "Serengeti" horse gear. Two pads (tiger and giraffe) and 3 pairs of polo wraps (tiger, cheetah, and giraffe). The polos hardly ever get used but the pads are almost on a horse daily!

    Also, I bought my best friend a hot pink zebra halter for christmas, and little girl at our barn has a hot pink zebra blinged out bronc halter.

    Oh. I came across this in the new Dover catalog today and was utterly baffled. Glad that they make it in only pony size!

    I thought the EXACT same thing! Man, that gum sucked--it lost is flavor after about 10 chews!

  9. I have a similar story to Megan's. I worked in a tack shop. A woman came in and bought a very expensive horse hair whisk - the kind with the bone cane handle - about $100 nearly 25 years ago. Asked for a handwritten receipt as she could write it off as a business expense for her show - yep a stripper.
    As for those chaps - any guy that can ride a bull or wrestle a steer can wear whatever he wants - no one if going to make fun of him.
