About Me

My photo

You've found the Mary-Dixon page about horsemanship.  Horses are my passion and my obsession.  They have helped me become a kinder, more confident, more patient person.  What they have taught me about them and taught me about myself is immeasureable.  I now try to teach folks about the nature of horses and how to understand each other which leads to a more confident human and a more confident little darling.

2 Tack and Equipment Care - great tips


2  Tack and Equipment Care

Are you shining bits, stirrups, and buckles? Toothpaste is wonderful for cleaning white stirrup pads and shining silver bits, stirrups, buckles, buttons on your tack. Toothpaste will make your horses gleam!

Having trouble keeping your stainless steel horse bits and stirrups clean and shiny? You can soak any stainless tack item in a bowl of vinegar for several days to dissolve the rust. Rinse thoroughly after using.
Horse Tack Mold Problems? Want to remove mold on leather products like saddles, bridles, leather boots and straps? White vinegar can be used for a deep cleaning of mold. Vinegar will also remove buildup and stickiness.
