    Peruvian Tack

    The Peruvian horse riding gear as well as the gear used by horsemen throughout the American continent, has its origin in the tack used in most of Europe during the fifteenth century.
    In Peru, horses were mainly used for transportation, therefore, the need was to essentially maintain the features of a comfortable and secure saddle, giving rise to what in Peru is called the Montura de Cajon or box saddle. The name is derived from the fact that the rider sits "boxed in" between the pommel and cantle.

    The Peruvian tack consists of the saddle, its accessories (cinch, stirrups, crupper and breeching), the wooden stirrups, the braided headgear and the San Pedrano Pellon.
