MOP05 - Horse Clothing

by Diane Davis February. 06, 2011 1701 views

Admittedly I'm not into rodeos. However I live in a town in the heart of the West that still bitterly holds on to that tradition. Rodeos, in my opinion, are nothing vaguely resembling what they once were.

In photographing some clothing at our local western store, my direction changed drastically when I spotted these hoof covers for horses. You can buy zebra stripped ones!

Here are some decorations for horse bridles.

And halters of every color to go with your color scheme.

There's more. What do you say about a society that dresses up their rodeo horses? I don't know. I don't think it's good, but then neither are rodeos either.

My thanks to King's Saddlery for allowing me to photograph.

What an education - I never even knew there was such a thing as hoof covers.
