Shopping online has never been easier than it is today.

But why do many rider prefer online shopping to traditional stores, and what kind of benefits does it offer?

What kind of tack can you buy online?

When it comes to riding gear and tack for horses, not all of it should be bought online. For instance, certain tack, such as saddles, should be properly fitted, thus buying it online may be challenging. However, online shopping can save time and offer multiple choices, for instance, which is why many people prefer to place their orders online. 

First, let us look at some tack that is better bought in store rather than online. Any leather products, such as bridles, saddles, riding boots, and martingales, are always better bought in person, as it will give you a chance to inspect the quality of the leather and stitching. In addition, it is often easier to fit the product to you or your horse better when you can see it in-person. Of course, if an online store has a good return policy, buying leather products online should not be a problem, either.

However, some products are easy to buy online, such as:

  • Brushes and grooming products
  • Gloves, helmets, breeches, and riding crops
  • Safety stirrups
  • Blankets and boots
