This article lists all of the horse-related store inventory. It also explains how each item is used.

Tack

"Tack" refers to the equipment used to ride and control a horse. The tack in Elanthia is less complex than the tack used in real life. It is limited to the following pieces of equipment: saddles, bridles, halters, and lead ropes.

Saddles

A saddle is a padded seat for the rider; it is fastened around the horse's back. Stirrups (footrests) are usually attached to the saddle and are not sold separately in Elanthia. (All saddles come with stirrups.)

Unless you are trained to ride bareback, you should purchase a saddle. Most riders prefer to ride on a saddle with stirrups, because this combination offers additional stability and control for the rider, especially during combat. It is also easier to mount and dismount when the horse is equipped with stirrups.

Saddles can be carried on the shoulder when not in use.

Bridles

A bridle is a device that assists a rider in controlling a horse. It includes the headstall and bit (worn around the face and in the mouth) and the reins. The rider manipulates the reins to direct the horse.

Halters

A halter is a device that is used to lead or secure a horse by a handler who is on the ground. (To this end, a lead rope may be attached to a halter.)

Although it is possible to ride with a halter, you won't have any control over the horse; it will simply wander in whatever direction it wants.

Lead Ropes

A lead rope allows a person on the ground to lead a horse. If your horse is equipped with a bridle or halter, you do not need to purchase a separate lead rope.

Padding

Padding must be placed under the saddle to prevent injury to the horse. Padding comes in two types: the saddle pad and the saddle blanket. It is possible to equip a horse with both a pad and a blanket, although the horse needs only one piece of padding to prevent injury.

It's not uncommon for bareback riders to use some padding, such as a saddle blanket, to protect their horses and themselves.

Saddle Pads

Saddle pads are thicker and smaller than saddle blankets. (They are not usually much larger than the saddle itself.) Saddle pads normally consist of three layers: the padding material is sandwiched between a tough outer layer on top and a soft layer on the side that comes in contact with the horse.

Saddle Blankets

Saddle blankets are larger and thinner than saddle pads. Some blankets are designed to be folded for double thickness; others are designed not to be folded. The additional size of the saddle blanket allows for more decorative elements

Barding

Barding is armor for horses. It comes in four types: plate, chain, bone, and leather. All horses can wear chain, bone, or leather barding, but only large horses (16+ hands) can wear plate barding. Plate barding offers the most protection and is recommended for the full-contact sport of jousting.

Barding is sold in five separate pieces: the chanfron, the crinnet, the peytrel, the flanchard, and the crupper. Each protects a different part of the horse's body.

Chanfron: The chanfron protects the horse's face. It extends from the horse's ears to its muzzle. Some models protect the eyes and jowls. The chanfron often restricts the horse's field of vision, which prevents it from being intimidated during the charge.

Appraisal: protects head and eyes


Crinnet: The crinnet protects the horse's neck. It consists of a series of segmented lamés or plates. In heavier models, both the mane and neck areas are protected; in lighter models, only the mane is protected. Chain and leather models presumably consist of one piece (as opposed to multiple lamés).

Appraisal: protects neck


Peytrel: The peytrel protects the horse's chest.

Appraisal: protects chest and front legs


Flanchards: The flanchards protect the horse's flank. A piece of armor is attached to each side of the saddle. (The flanchard is sold and described as one piece, but there is actually one on each side.)

Appraisal: protects abdomen and legs


Crupper: The crupper protects the horse's hindquarters.

Appraisal: protects back and rear legs

Decorations

Some items, such as caparisons, wreaths, and ribbons, are primarily decorative.

Caparisons

A caparison is a large cloth that is draped over a horse's body. Some caparisons also cover the neck, face, and tail. The caparison is split at the front to allow greater mobility. Caparisons are often decorated with the rider's insignia.

Grooming

In Elanthia, there are tools to groom the horse's coat, mane, tail, and hooves. The stable will groom your horse while the horse is in its care. Unless you have the horse out for an extended period of time, you should not need to groom it often.

Brushes

Curry Combs

Curry combs are the first step in the grooming process. The groomer slides it onto his hand and works the comb in a circular motion to loosen dirt, hair, and other debris. (This process is called "currying.") Curry combs are usually too harsh to be used on the head or legs.

Brushes

A stiff brush is used to remove the material that was loosened during currying. The groomer should brush the horse with the natural grain of the hair. Stiff brushes are too harsh to be used on the head.

Many of the stiff brushes sold in Elanthia are double-sided. You can TURN these brushes to use them as soft brushes. To check whether a brush is double-sided, you need only LOOK at it.

A soft brush is used after the horse has been curried and brushed with a stiff brush. It removes finer particles and makes the coat shine. Horses often enjoy this stage of grooming. The soft brush is gentle enough to use on the head.

Hoof Picks

A hoof pick is a tool that is used to clean the horse's hooves. The hooves should be cleaned before and after riding. (Fortunately, the stable will do this for you.)

Feed

Some merchants sell food, treats, and salt that you can give to your horse. The stable will feed your horse while the horse is in its care. Unless you have the horse out for an extended period of time, you should not need to feed it often.

Feed comes in three basic types: forages (grasses and legumes), grains, and treats (apples and carrots). Salt is an essential mineral that needs to be provided. The stable will ensure that your horse receives the nutrition it needs.

Forage or "roughage" consist of grasses and legumes and is the primary component of a horse's diet. Hay is a dried mixture of grasses and legumes.

Whole or crushed grains are a form of concentrated feed. Oats, corn, and barley are the most common grains fed to horses. In Elanthia, all grain feed is just described as "grain;" this could be a mixture of different grains.

Horses do not need treats, but the carrots and apples sold by stables are safe to give to your horse.

Most horses do not get enough salt from their daily diets and therefore must be given additional salt. Again, the stable provides your horse with all the salt that it needs.
