It's not even a shop that sells it cheap, it's just pure luck we found it at thrift shops. My friend goes regularly and just keeps her eye out.
<3 bargain hunting :)

Well when I used to have tack... I hung my stuff in the old run down barn til cats and birds decided it was a bathroom! Then I started to just shove all of it in my truck. The trunk was my tack room! What a stinky mess but it was kept clean and dry!

I also used cheap plastic containers for the small stuff. I've been to real nice barns where they even had heated bathrooms built in! What the heck. What I want to know is those that didn't have that luxury, and you were alone,, what did you do when you had to pee real bad? TMI! I know but its so funny! I went in a old old shed used for a lean to. Now, shhh! Don't tell! Lol!

Pintotess- hahah I had them along time ago and don't really remember them... I guess that's a good thing LOL!
Jyuukai- OH MAN I totally remember using green apple dawn shampoo before my trainer supplied shampoo! Its the best and leaves their coat so soft!
Mbender- some people have the most luxurious barns (and I can't say im not a teensey jealous) but some are just redonkulous!

Bargain hunting is the best!!

I always thought dish soap was a great shampoo! I heard once that it is less harsh on their coats and skin than even human shampoo. Who knows if that is true or not....
Last year I was using a deck box from Target as my tack trunk. Big enough even for a saddle and gear, and a spot to lock it if needed.

This is pretty much my tack box. I love it and it has a handy pull out compartment at the top I use to put treats and miscellaneous junk in.

I tried my rubber band idea out on him today and only the big kinds work....good because I can get a TON of them. Just thought if you all wanted to know that's the size that works.

All you luckies that can bargain hunt...I would probably die of stress. :p

I was the queen of 'ghetto riding' My "show" boots were not riding boots at all, but dressy tall black boots that only went up about 3/4 way up calf that parents bought at clearnce section of Kohl's. My shirt was just a polo shirt and I had to borrow my friends breeches for shows that were a size too big. My helmet was a bicycle helmet. That was for my shows. During practice when I did finally buy my first horse I couldn't afford a martingale which my horse needed so I made my own with braided bailing twine. I couldn't afford a tack trunk to hold all my stuff so used a bubbermaid bin, and didn't ahve money to buy a tack box so used a container that got at the dollar store.
