new tack =D

hello everyone! so, today i went to my barn's tack sale. they had a bunch of stuff and it was all reallyyy cheap. And, i had only brought $24 dollars with me. These are the things i ended up buying....

*lime green saddle pad
*lime green zebra polo wraps xD

i was really happy because these are my own tack. i have been using my trainers things. now all i need is brushes(i forgot to buy some =P) and a saddle and i would be good to go. I was alsohappy because i got the bridle for $15 and in stores it would have probably been $150 as my trainer says. it's really nice leather. overall, im very happy with what i bought. I can't wait to try out the new bridle, it fits Lacy nicely. The polos were only $1 each and the saddle pad was $5.

Here where I live we have a tack store that has a huge tack swap twice a year and I always go with a huge load of stuff and come back with a load of different stuff. We are having one in may and I can't wait I am gonna buy a new saddle then. an actual brand name english saddle. Congrats on your great finds.

Sounds like you had some great finds! The tack sales in my area are through 4h, so it's mostly old supplies from lesson barns and western shops. You can still find some good buys though. I love buying $2 saddle pads that just need to be thrown in the wash to look new. I found a super nice leather halter for $10 last year too. I'm so good at bargaining. ;]

Wow LacyLove, that sounds brilliant! Here in england we have horse sales there great. (appart from how they auction the horses off) We have tack auctions too. My friend baught a brand new english leather hunter bridle for 14 and even managed to buy a second hand saddle for just 8! Its not in fantastic condition but you can ride on it and it dosent look a mess
