    About

    As we all know, the most challenging part of a ride for the horse is being saddled. This is when you are anxious, want to get going, and you are struggling with the last hole on a billet strap, and all of this struggling projects angst onto the horse. This never bodes well for anybody. The tackaberry allows you to GENTLY use the four-to-one purchase of the pulley system, with the right hand, while scratching the neck of the horse with the left hand. A much more relaxed and enjoyable experience for everyone. The tackaberry is an amazing helper for jumpy horses.


    Our re-design of the old buckle includes being made of stainless steel and widening the slots. This means that the buckle can easily receive a 2" nylon lacing. Nylon can work more efficiently because nylon moves more easily through the pulley system. To set the nylon strap up, the strap goes over the top girth ring, attached to the saddle, down the back side, then comes out through the TOP slot of the buckle. The lacing then goes back over and thru the main girth ring, comes down the back side again, and then out thru the BOTTOM slot of the buckle. After putting the ring from the cinch into the cradle, the strap is pulled gently to cinch up the saddle. The more pressure that is applied, the more easily the nylon moves thru the buckle. When the cinch is sufficiently tight, the end of the strap is tucked down into the loops that are sewn into the cinch. The very tip of the strap is fed back up through the loops so, for an easy un-cinching; just grab the tip and pull, and the whole buckle comes loose almost instantaneously.

    Another version of the tackaberry is for "center fire" rigging. This kind of rigging is where a tackaberry buckle and strap are used on each side of the horse. Rigging with straps on both sides of the saddle can move the girth back about 4" from the elbow. This kind of rigging is highly recommended on mules and a good idea on horses prone to galling. The lacing is first passed thru the BACK cinch ring, then thru the TOP slot of the tackaberry buckle. Next the strap is passed up and over the main girth ring of the saddle, passed down and back through the BOTTOM SLOT of the buckle. When the strap are adjusted to be even on each side the pressure from the saddle back is pulled down evenly with the front. To use Center-Fire Rigging, you will need to order 2 of the long tackaberrys.

    Colors may vary from picture.

    Three steps to use a Tackaberry

    Step One. Hold the tackaberry buckle with the lip and tongue facing out. Then pass the pointed end of the nylon strap up over the girth ring, and pull it down the inside, then pass the pointed end of the nylon billet back out through the TOP slot of the buckle, so the pointed end comes out facing you.

    Step Two. Take the pointed end of the nylon billet, pass it back in and over the girth ring for a second time, pull it down the back side, and then pass the pointed end of the strap through the BOTTOM slot, and pull it out with the tongue coming at you.

    Step Three. Now place the ring of the girth over the lip of the tackaberry buckle, and pull until the girth is at the desired tightness. The off-side is secured with the traditional Western off-billet, and remains fixed in place once the girth has been "leveled". The nylon tackaberry lacing moves smoothly once it takes tension. When the desired tightness has been attained, slip the pointed end of the strap down through the loops on the girth, and then double it back up so the pointed end is right there -- for a quick and easy release. Uncinch by pulling on the nylon, releasing the tongue from the hole, loosening the nylon until it drops so the cinch ring can be easily lifted off the lip of the buckle .THEN LEAVE THE TACKABERRY AND LACING ASSEMBLED ON THE SADDLE.
