Tekna Tack Sizing- a little funky? *Update*
I'm interested in buying a complete line of tekna products. Saddle, girth, leathers, bridle, reins, breastplate w/ running martingale attachment, boots... the works. I'm kind of trying to make a statement (you don't have to be rich and buy expensive tack to ride and compete- at least that's what I'm trying to tell my husband *conspiratorial grin*) but that's another story :winkgrin:
So, anyway, I went to look at the saddle today and loved it. I started browsing around the other products and noticed something odd. Their sizes (for everything but the saddle) are something like pony, cob & full. I was instantly depressed since my mare is a moose and takes everything oversized.
My wonderful tack store rep here in Phoenix told me that the sizing is a little funny. The pony is really a cob, the cob is a normal full and the full is actually what we think of as oversized. :confused: Kind of makes sense I guess and the labels that whoever imports (?) or distributes them seem to agree with this logic. The company "not bein' from 'round these parts" does things a little differently perhaps.
So. Has anyone had experience with this? Will a "full" tekna figure 8, boots, etc. fit my moose?
Just received my bridle. I ordered the full size after a Tekna rep told me they run large and tend to fit horses with big heads. It certainly does appear to be oversized! I'm going to take it up to the barn tomorrow to compare it to her current bridle. Mare still isn't in AZ, she's arriving in 2 weeks or so. The bridle is GORGEOUS though! I can't believe how leather-like it is!
