The Western Discipline is known as Western Riding primarily for the use of a specific style of Saddle known as the Western Saddle and Western Tack and Western Bridle & Headstalls. Western riding is a style of horseback riding which evolved from the ranching and warfare traditions brought to the Americas by the Spanish Conquistadors, and both equipment and riding style evolved to meet the working needs of the cowboy in the American West. American cowboys needed to work long hours in the saddle over rough terrain, sometimes needing to rope cattle with a lariat (or lasso). Because of the necessity to control the horse with one hand and use a lariat with the other, western horses were trained to neck rein, that is, to change direction with light pressure of a rein against the horse's neck. Horses were also trained to exercise a certain degree of independence in using their natural instincts to follow the movements of a cow, thus a riding style developed that emphasized a deep, secure seat, and training methods encouraged a horse to be responsive on very light rein contact.

Bridle and Western Headstalls
The Bridle comes in many different styles and configurations and used with two basic styles of bit; Snaffle Bits and Curb Bits, but not limited to these two options. Traditionally Western Bridle refer to the head sets that include the browband, throat latch and cheek pieces. Sometimes these bridle were also used with various types of nosebands. The Western Headstall traditionally refers to a simple poll strap, varioius types of browbands such as single ear browbands. Most common set of reins used with Western Bridle and Western headstalls are Split Reins. Sometimes joined reins are used. Today, the Term Bridle and Headstall are used to refer to the same piece of tack.
Breastcollars and Western Breastplates
Breastcollars refer to the strappings used to secure a saddle from sliding back on a horses back. Breastcollars reach from the top points of the saddle by the top of the horses neck down to the center front of the horses chest and have a joing strap that runs from the front center down between the horses front legs and attach to the girth. A Breastplate runs from the side of the saddle at the girth across the horses chest and joins at the other side of the saddle at the girth with a neck strap used to keep the breastplate up. Today western breastplate and western breastcollar refer to the same piece of tack but in fact they are two different items.
Martingales and Tiedowns
Martingales come in two typical styles. The Standing Martingale and the Running Martingale. The traditional Martingale is the Standing Martingale. The term tiedown is used to refer to standing martingales. The standing martingale attaches to the noseband or tiedown noseband.
