    Default Tacky, Tacky, Tack

    what were these tack-makers thinking??? Note: this is not my blog- i have no idea who wrote the posts

    some of these saddles are actually ok, but there are a few that are headache-giving: http://tackytackoftheday.blogspot.co...ch/label/Bling

    I like the dressage saddles. I think they are interesting.

    The dressage saddles look very Star Trek to me. I could see Captain Kirk riding in one while visiting a planet of horse people.
    I love cooking with wine. Sometimes I even put it in the food.

    Well that explains it; I'm a Trekkie! BTW Captain Picard has his own saddle, and out there in the future future it was quite a conventional leather AP saddle.

    The 9 year old I babysit for has a bridle with zebra print and pink jewel hearts on it. Yeah it's really tacky but she's 9 so I guess it's ok. And then I learned that her mom lets her show in it!

    There are not enough barf bags in the world to contain the vomitus post viewing Tacky Tack. Oy

    Sadly, I can see my son's father and/or his idiot brother using the stripper tack. Ugh.

    That one dressage saddle looks like they skinned Kermit and made him a saddle!

    You make fun of the bling tack and others die laughing that the English folk ride in suits and top hats! To each his own.

    I personally think some of the stuff looks pretty fun and I would have loved that diversity in tack when I was a little girl.

    Per the stripper shank......well, at least one could identify straight away that the guy was an asshole!! Just as telling as the stripper truck mud flaps!

    Check it: http://www.ebay.com/itm/12-Pink-Leat...ht_1361wt_1037

    Complete with running martingale! ...I think I had this set for Barbie's horse. (Anyone remember the white one with a purple mane and hooves? I called mine "Rosebud.")

    ETA: I am less creative than I thought. The horse's name was actually Rosebud on the box: http://images1.americanlisted.com/nl...ge_7648875.jpg
