Polo pony

what are all the reins and attachments for? 

My mom tried to get me to play Polo… No.

No? Polo is so much fun! You’re crazy for not wanting to play.  You need to have full control of the horse at all times, when you have 8 horses galloping down a field at full speed, it only takes one to throw its head the wrong way or trip and flip to cause a frenzy.  Its very dangerous, which is why the tack is necessary, not only for safety reasons but because the precision it takes to hit the ball at full speed is crazy, and if the horse decides to throw its head up too far, or spin around, etc, it can screw up the swing and/or hurt someone or itself.  double reins aren’t always used, only when the extra control is necessary. (and notice the Pelham, double reins are necessary anyway.)  Its nothing we don’t use in hunter/jumpers. it just looks like a lot more due to the way its set up and the thickness of the leathers. 

❤️❤️❤️❤️ polo ponies

It’s not just double reins though, the reins on the snaffle ring look like draw reins?Also polo ponies are fabulous but the tack DOES get over the top (although not so much in this case, it just looks like a lot when you have a separate breastplate and martingale) and I think justifying it with “it’s too dangerous otherwise” is not really any kind of a defence.
