Abstract: The Pony Bar is a handle bar that attaches to the horn of a western horse saddle. The purpose of the handle bar is to provide a safety mechanism for kids to hold on to while sitting in the saddle and riding. The components of the handle bar are comprised of various materials including a metal pipe, connecting bolt, bolt fasteners and hand grip material. The bar helps a rider stabilize him/herself and therefore helps to prevent falls and encourage confidence and balance while in the saddle.
