Arabian Horse Tack

Typically, Arabian horses require slightly different sizes of tack than other breeds. They have a wider, shorter back than most horses. This requires a saddle that is shorter and built on a wider tree with a gradual pitch. Because of his smaller refined head, he needs a smaller headstall and bit, usually a 4 3/4" and sometimes a 4 1/2" bit instead of the 5" bit found in most tack stores.
