We love talking to our customers 

When shopping for new tack, the possibilities are almost endless, making it easy to be overwhelmed with the option choices.  
Like most of us, you have leather tack, it works, it's beautiful, traditionalist' require it, as do some rulebooks.  The work involved in maintaining leather tack is only one reason to switch to biothane tack.  Today. in 2015, more and more judges allow the synthetics. Biothane has been used in the Equine industry since 1977.  
Biothane "like" products are made in China, Australia and here in the USA, to name a few.  Whom ever you choose to make your new harness or tack, insist on authentic, USA made Biothane, by Biothane, Inc.  Parry Harness & Tack was one of the original companies associated with Bioplastics, the inventors of Biothane.  

Options to consider, but not limited to:

  • Biothane or BETA?  Biothane has a harder “feel" than BETA.  BETA looks and feels more like leather.  Both come in lots of colors.  Biothane has a higher break strength making it the choice for Stirrup Leathers and most parts of Driving Harness.  Using a combination of both BETA and Biothane makes a beautiful set of tack, using Beta for the Bridle and triming the Brow and Noseband with a shiny, contrasting color in Biothane.  Samples upon request.
  • Hardware:  Parry Tack uses only Stainless Steel Hardware available in several styles.  Western Roller Buckles, Traditional English Buckles as well as the beautiful Horse Shoe Hardware by Jeramiah Watt in both Silver and Black embossed.  Brass is available upon request.
  • Trim Overlay or Underlay Lining:  We offer the same or contrasting color trims and underlinings in either leather like BETA or shiny Biothane.  Example:  Grey Beta Bridle and Breastplate with Black Shiny (Patent leather look) trim on top of the grey.  Beautiful!
  • Tack Styles:  Endurance, Competitive and Pleasure Trail, English, Western, Polo, TB Racing & Drill Team
  • Bridles;  Halter Bridle Combinations, Add On Bridles, Browband Bridles, Hackamore Headstalls, Bit-less Bridles, One Ear, Dressage, Hunter Jumper and Schooling Bridles, just ask.
  • Halter Bridle Combo, our most popular bridle, is available in many variations - Snap in Bit Hangers, Crown Bit Hanger, Snap in Browband, Jeweled Browband, Full Noseband or Halter Squares with adjustable chin.  We can also make this bridle with a snap at the crown for those horses, mules or donkeys with sensitive ears. 
  • Bit Less or Bit-less Bridles: In many styles 1. Wild Style (Dr.Cook) 2. Sidepull 3. Sidepull with extra Jaw Strap 4. Combination
  • Breast Collars & Breastplates: Both the V Style as well as the English Straight breast collars are available.  The V Style Breast Collars come with your choice of O ring, D ring or Horse Shoe Hardware for center ring with a 1” Strap to the girth with a snap or English loop, straps to saddle rings as well as a strap over the withers.  
  • Reins:  Offered in Loop or Continuous, Buckle Reins with Buckle at hand, to the bit or both and Split Reins.  We can always add grip to any of the rein styles.  All widths and lengths available and most colors.
  • Parts Available:  Curb Straps or Curb Chains including the Paso Style, Browbands and Nosebands, Cavessons with or without rings, Tie Downs, Bit Hangers, Snap Loops, Girth Loops, Stirrup Leathers, Sponge Leads, Rein Popper, Trailer Ties, Adjustable Barn Cross Ties, Bucket Straps, Spur Straps, Halters - Full, Grooming and Combination are some of the miscellaneous tack we have in stock or can make custom in your choice of colors.


Parry Tack coined the phrase:   “Truly, the last tack you'll buy....   in that color"

We'll, we were proved wrong by some great customers over the years who loved the colors they chose originally, still using the tack today but wanted to upgrade from Biothane to the more leather like, BETA.  Below see pictures of Biothane tack we made in the early 1980's and the newer version, same color scheme, in BETA, made 2015.

ALERT:  We make MUCH better harness & tack, than we do New Websites!

Welcome to our 4th Website!  In our humble opinion, we make the best harness and tack in the industry.  We’ve the very BEST customers and pride ourselves on our customer service (our customers make it easy).  Since 1978, weve catered to the Endurance and Pleasure Trail Riders. 

We are, however, not website builders.  We're learning though!  You might remember our old site, ugly but easy to use.  We stepped up, hired the experts to make a better, more professional looking site.  Well it looked good but it basically tanked.  So we're back on our own, struggling with loading a myriad of products and thier many options so that our customers can order right off the website. 
It takes time and patience, sitting here at the keyboard (HATE IT!) learning about MetaTags, SEO Requirements, etc.  We are adding products daily and trying to include all of the many options available for harness & tack.    In the mean time, thank you in advance for your kind patience and understanding.  Thank you for patronage since 1978! 

A website is a work in progress, frustrating, aggrivateing and a real brain squeeze.  If you ever find yourself needing a website, Ive got a few years of experience, thousands of dollars paid to "professionals" and would be happy to share my experience.  I can at least share with you what NOT TO DO!  


If you do not see it on the website, it does not mean we don't make it.  We do, and it just may be in stock!  

Please email or call us at 888-939-8225 or cell:  407-230-7370   

We will patiently answer questions, share the many options and guide you to the harness or tack that is perfect for you.
