Talking Shhh! I wont tell if you wont!

So I was thinking today as I want through all of my horsey stuff how many horsey things I have that are completely ghetto-rigged. My best example is my show coat, it is perfect for what I do, plain black, right length, and a flap in the back with some give for jumping. Sounds perfect right? Hehe well my mom bought it for 10$ at a consignment shop, and its DKNY, witch is not horsey at all. Ill post pictures one I find the camera!

So now im curious, how many of yall have wonkey substitutes to save same money in the oh so expensive horse world?

My tack box likes to pretend that it is a tack box and not something I picked up at the local lowes for less than $50.

I also plan on using the old braces rubber bands I have to braid his mane.

My horse came out of a freaking dream.....<3

Where did you get this tupperware? I've looked and can't seem to find any with locks!

My medicine/first aid box is a dog dish with a compartment underneath for storing dog food. We put things we need to use daily, like bute if they were taking it, on top and other bandages, etc. underneath.

We find our hacking jackets at op shops. Some of them actually are Dublin or other horse brands which was a fluke. We also pick up matching tie/vest for each season as well. Sorted with a new look each year for $20 tops.
My riding pants are just tights from Valley Girl, I have one pair or actual jods for comps that don't have holes in them lol.
I have 2 tack boxes, both smallish plastic boxes for $15 and $30 from a bargain shop. The kind with the end handles that fold over and lock the lid on? Yeah. They're really good.
I used to use old towels and bath mats as saddle blankets when I was younger. Now I just have the one which is starting to fall apart. I think it's time for a new one lol

I haven't actually got anything non horsey but my human hair spray I use for Tess. Braces bands are excellent! Im going to go to the ortho and say "ummm, I need more bands for my braces" !! GREAT IDEA!

Vienna Reins - Baling twine + snaps
Tack Trunk - Rubbermaid storage container
Hard Brush - scrub brush from dollar tree (its smaller and it fits my hands better lol)
Shine Spray for mane and tail only - ethnic hair conditioning spray
Shampoo - Green Apple Dawn dish soap

The list could go on for centuries lol. I'm pretty dang cheap, and luckily all of my instructors have been cheap as well! I was taught cheapness with horses at an early age lol
