Most horses only wear three basic things for riding: a saddle, a saddle pad/blanket, and a bridle. Of course, the choices for each (and related accessories such as a breastcollar) are nearly limitless - and that’s not to say that their humans limit themselves to buying just these three things!
A road horse, however, requires more. In addition to these three basic components, Apollo wears boots, bells, a fly sheet or quarter sheet (depending on the season), and several saddle bags to hold our travel supplies.
Check out my video about his gear ( Horse Travel 101: What Apollo Wears
https://youtu.be/lQC8JbygO9g ) for a full explanation of each piece of tack and gear!
And also check out this video that shows it all getting put on - “Horse Travel 101: The Road Horse’s Guide to Saddling” https://youtu.be/T1Pk_igS9G8
Here is a complete list of the tack and other gear that Apollo wears. This list does not include anything that is IN the bags. You’ll have to wait for a later post for those details! Please note that many of these are Amazon affiliate links.
