The Mystery of Western Horse Tack – Solved! is a book I am very proud of. I just had a book signing over the April 29th weekend promoting this very book! I sold several copies in which the patron always asked me to write a special note inside. The paperback version can be purchased here.
This book came to mind when I thought of how often, over the years, I’ve noticed a new piece of horse equipment brought into the horse circles, and people will put it on their horse with no idea what it is for, or how to use it. The main reason many of the items are bought is because it looked cool on so-and-so’s horse!
I have witnessed people use a tie-down as a permanent part of their horse tack. It is as permanent as their saddle! The tie-down is a training device, not standard riding equipment. I hope, by educating people about horse equipment, with this book, these poor horses won’t be wearing training equipment all of their life.
I was so happy to see kids reading my book, as well as adults. It doesn’t matter how old you are, you can start learning at any age. This book covers everything from the hoof to the halter! There’s pictures and examples throughout it too.
