To win rodeo events, you have to make an investment in your horse’s equipment. If you’re just getting started in barrel racing and need to stock up on supplies, stop by our store for these four essentials:
- Saddle pads: You want a pad that’s soft, durable, moisture-wicking and shock-absorbing. The pad should be placed under the saddle to provide a cushion and protect the horse’s back.
- Headstalls: A properly fitted headstall shouldn’t rub your horse’s cheeks or behind the ears.
- Bits: Whether you prefer a snaffle or a curb, the bit should evenly distribute pressure on the horse’s head without damaging the horse’s mouth.
- Breast collars: The right fit will stabilize your saddle and prevent it from shifting backward while you run your pattern. Your palm will fit between the straps and the horse’s chest on a properly fitted breast collar.
You’ll be ready to jump in the saddle once you have the right riding accessories. Call 605-647-2299 or visit our store in Lennox, South Dakota today to see what we have in stock.
