Spring Down Equestrian Center

Tack Up Clinic

Do you know how to:

  • Put a saddle on correctly?
  • Which pads go on first?
  • What the curb chain should be placed on?
  • How to put polo wraps on your horse?
  • How to pick the horse’s feet?
  • How to properly groom your horse?

If not, sign up in the office to learn all about horse tack and equipment, grooming and properly tacking up your horse.

If you are 12 years or older and have had your 3 complimentary tack ups, we need you to tack up your own horse before your lesson. Spring Down encourages horsemanship from the ground up and we are happy to help you learn all about it!

If you are unable to take the tack up lesson or choose to have us tack up your horse, there will be an additional fee of $10 for a tack up and $10 for an untack.

This clinic is typically scheduled once a month on a Sunday around midday for about an hour.

Next clinic date is TBD. Contact the office to express interest.
