So you’ve just ridden your horse. There was fun, laughter, and lots of sweat. Now you’re unsaddled and putting away your tack—the tack you’re (probably) going to put back on your horse the next time you ride. Presumably you like your horse. You paid a lot of money for him, and you enjoy riding him every now and then. Are you putting your tack away in a manner that will keep it as clean as possible? Are you checking it regularly?
