4 Ways to Use Preciosa Flatback Crystals on Horse Tack so you standout for your competitions and dressage

As a general rule, horse owners just love to make their horses look their very best. They really do value quality, and there’s also an increasing trend towards everything that sparkles. Whether they compete on their horses or just ride them at home, adults and children alike welcome the opportunity to look that little bit more eye-catching. Read on to discover four ways you can use Preciosa flatback crystals to decorate horse tack for your customers.


For even the most reserved of riders, a sparkly browband is a must-have. Preciosa flatback crystals are great quality, easy to work with, and really set off a bridle beautifully. Chunkier browbands for heavier-set horses could suit larger or more outlandish designs, whereas you could choose to add a few strategically placed crystals on the more delicate browbands. Having said that, there’s no need to limit yourself – let the creativity flow!


Saddle cantles lend themselves to decoration. That back area of the saddle is mostly flat, and catches the eye as you’re riding away from someone. Embellishing a customer’s cantle with Preciosa flatback crystals will make them stand out whether they’re starting the show season, hacking out with friends, or just schooling in the arena. Your customers could even add some sparkle to their horses’ tails, to make a fully coordinated look.


Breastplates are already stylish, and lend themselves to bling. A smattering of crystals will create an understated look, whereas a complete covering of sparkle will really attract the right kind of attention! You could decorate pretty much any part of the breastplate, as long as the crystals don’t come into contact with the horse – the girth area is really the only place you’d need to avoid.

Stirrup leathers

A few select stirrup leather companies have caught onto the fact that you can bling the very ends of the leather, but it’s not yet commonplace. One or two Preciosa flatback crystals will add that extra something to your customers’ leathers.
