Hairy Tack

I have to admit, when I first saw this very original tack by Reinsman in their spring catalog, I thought it was pretty weird. Tack with...fur? But after flipping the pages dozen of times, it's grown on me. After all, it is pretty original. The whole coordinating package put on a horse would look pretty bad...bad in a good way, that is.

And, no, it's not fur. The brindle hair-on cowhide decked tack includes headstalls, breastcollars, and nosebands.

Here's one of the X Series Ropers, the 4455, shown 5/8 tooled with full brindle hair on cowhide seat.

The X Series saddles are fully customizable, from the amount of tooling to one of six seat colors. We love putting them together for our customers and seeing how each saddle comes out with a unique look.
What do you think of the bridle-y tack? Yea or nay?
