Need More Tack!

Folks, I am running out of material! Time for yall to go Tack hunting again! Send me hideousness of all colors, cheaply made stuff, sparklies, flowery, fluffy, pink, purple, you name it! Also cruel and inhumane examples of tack. I need more material as I have either run through all of mine, or it is very similar to previous posts. Remember, if it is a Craigslist post, save and email me the actual photos, as the ads freqently disappear.

  2. Hi,

    I have been lurking and enjoying your blog for a while now. Here's a link:
    http://www.horsegroomingsupplies.com/horse-forums/journals/tacky-tack-b8164.html

    It's not as bad as some of the tack I've seen here, but it does feature cheap looking tack in bathroom-decor pink, as well as flesh colored wraps with little yellow duckies all over them.

    Keep up the great work!

    For $1,600!!! Really?! If it were, say, $20, I'd buy it and just scrape the paint off or something...but $1,600!!! Ha.

    Super long shanked twisted mouth GAG bit...A little overboard don't ya think?

    Apparently they're more common than I thought. *sigh*

    That tiny little mouthpiece with the long shanks just looks painful.

    I often see KIDS riding with these bits...WHY WHY WHY?

    Bike chain, draw mouth (or as I like to call it, Super-gag). I can only picture a bloody mouth. I'm sure it could work wonders in the perfect hands, but for the other 99% of us, it's too harsh. NO horse should need this.

    I don't know how a mouthpiece like this actually works(more tongue, less bars?) but I thought it looked pretty tame and I've always wanted one even if it's just because it looks cool.

  7. Ok last one. That last mouthpiece is called a "waterford". Just looked it up. :)

  8. Hi! I went to the Western States Horse Expo last weekend, and I took pictures of some really hilarious tacky gear I found there and emailed it to you last week. Let me know if you didn't get my message for some reason, and I can send it again if you like.

  9. Hope you don't mind my posting again. I love this blog.

    Anyway, Americans are not alone when it comes to tacky tack. This site is from Australia:

    http://www.browbandsofdistinction.com/. I think you'll appreciate the scary PVC browbands in neon pink and lime green, as well as other "extreme bling."

    Here's an ugly Peptol-Bismol colored bridle being sold at an online garage sale. Note the lovely polyester tassels on it!

  11. Maybe you should do a 180 and do some "Terrific Tack of the Day" until the "BUMs" (Er, that'd be Butt Ugly Manufacturers) catch up with you.
    Just a thought...I like to be different *Grin*
