Why Do They Call It "Tack"?

February 18th, 2011 13:48 pm | by Ed |

I am of course referring to the various and sundry collection of gear that is involved in horseback riding. I've heard it referred to collectively as horse tack for years and I've always wondered why it's called that.

yeah, I've take then time to ask people but thus far all they know is that a certain collection of things involving horses is called 'tack'. To date nobody has ever been able to explain WHY it's called 'tack'.

Could it be because somebody once tried to fasten a saddle to a horse with tacks?

Hey, it may sound ridiculous but there are people in this would that are easily dumb enough to do just that.
