Every horse needs accessories, including your very own hobby horse. Here are some accessorising tips for horses, including stick-legged ones.
Rug: A nice rug or blanket will keep your horse warm out on rides or in the paddock. Keep horsey toasty with a quilted blanket, and visible in the dark with a reflective rug, or go for a rain-proof cover if your pony likes to go galopping in the rain.
Hood: For show-jumping, horses typically wear fly masks or fancy bonnets to keep the flies off their ears. Hoods or bonnets are also worn to muffle noise at show-jumping competitions so the horse doesn’t get stressed. A must for all horse owners!
Bridle: A bridle or bit is used for controlling your horse when out riding. We have a range of bridles for different riding disciplines and how much you need to control your steed. At Panduro, we have ready-made bits, classic bridles and bridles with nosebands for all breeds of frisky horses.
Halter & lead: With a halter and a lead (rope to attach to the halter), it’ll be easy as anything to tie up your hobby horse and lead it to and from the paddock. Fasten the halter around your horse’s head, adjusting it to fit at the neck.
Jumping fence: With a show-jumping fence, you and your horse can compete to win trophies and rosettes. At Panduro, you’ll find fences made of princess-tree wood, which is soft and kind to hobby horse and human legs, but also stands up to those little knocks and bumps.
Stable gear: All horses need a place to sleep and recover after competitions. Here at Panduro, you’ll find hobby horse holders and stall signs for snazzy stabling of all your hobby horses.
Tally-ho! A-riding you shall go! You have now gallopped all the way to the end of our hobby horse school. We hope you’ve picked up lots of fun and helpful information for making your very own happy hobby horse. And don’t forget, now: every horse needs a name; hobby horses too.
