You know, it IS possible to...

...train your horse to do what you require without the use of bits like this. Really, it is. You could cut a tongue OFF with this sucker, look how thin that mouthpiece is. You should NEVER use something like this on a horse that is not finished, and even then, I would ask why. A finished horse shouldn't need this anyway. I shudder at the thought of how many speed horses out there have relatively inexperienced owners, little training, and less control have these shoved in their mouth, their heads tied down and the rider holding onto the reins for dear life.

Unsafe and Unridable Abomination

Click the pic to go to Lelia's sidesaddle blog where she has a truly Tacky side saddle (I use this term loosely) posted with commentary. It is a prime example of what NOT to buy. Craptackistani make, completely WRONG, unridable, uncomfortable, and unsafe. NEVER NEVER NEVER buy a side saddle from Craptackistan folks. EVER. With the exception of the Elan sold by Hundred Oaks, which is a good saddle, they are all CRAP.

Um, why?

Really Hilason? Why? I doubt seriously you can actually RIDE this creation without destroying it, it is white, and a Native American motif on a modern western saddle. It just looks funky. We all know it is not hand beaded or quilled, and we all know it came from Craptackistan. Heck, the jockey on this side is not even attached in the correct place.

This Reminds Me...

Of some of the saddles that used to come with my My Little Ponies when I was a kid. I can't imagine anyone actually using this. Not only does it look cheaply made, it is positively hideous.

See the similarities?

I'm Back

Long time, no post. But fear not! I am still kicking. I have just been very preoccupied with stuff lately. I have spent a lot of time doing SCA activities with my horses, showing, and just generally riding. Here are some recent pics of the SRF and I last weekend at Gleann Abhann Fall Crown List. We did an Equestrian demo for the populace and explained some of the ins and outs of what we do.

And here is some TACKY for you!

Look, it even has their phone number so you can order one just like it!!
