No matter how well you care for your equipment something can always break – usually just before you’re about to compete or when you’re out on the trail. It can be a worn or broken tie string http://bit.ly/2dGKcBO on a rein, headstall attachment to the bit or the cinch hobble strap http://bit.ly/2sxx9tt between the front and back cinches. The failure of any of these can bring about a wreck.

Don’t Break A Leg! Halter and Lead Safety Tips

We’ve all saddled a horse while it’s tied to the inside of an arena or to a fence or trailer. But have you ever seen halters hanging from the inside of an arena, still tied to the wall, while riders are working their horses in the same arena? Have you ever seen halters and leads in a pile on the ground with people walking or riding around them? These practices can lead to serious accidents. Putting halters and leads outside the arena (or any area where you’re riding) is extremely easy to do and could keep you, your friends and your horses from having an accident.

You Can’t Check Your Latigos Too Often!

What to look for with Dennis Moreland Tack.

Years ago I was leaning on a fence watching a cutting. A friend of mine who is a professional trainer was entering the arena and getting ready to head to the herd to make his first cut. Before he got to the timeline he realized his stirrups were a bit short so he stepped off to adjust them. When he got around to the right side of his horse and lifted the stirrup up he saw that the Dee ring on his saddle had worn almost entirely through his latigo. He had less than half an inch of leather holding his saddle on! That was a close call and could have been a bad, bad wreck.
