Western Saddles and Tack
The history of Western saddles and Western tack reflects the working relationship between horse and rider. From the earliest days of horseback riding some 4,000 years ago, intrepid horsemen rode bareback. Over time, improvements based on necessity helped the saddle cloth evolve into simple leather saddles. For hunting, battle, and general riding comfort, saddles with stirrups made horsemanship easier. As the relationship between horses and people grew into a formidable force, riding tack continued to change and improve. Today's Western saddle evolved from the needs of cowboys who were responsible for managing livestock. Throughout civilization, saddles and tack have been modified to fit the jobs of horses and riders.
