I buy a lot of my stuff used (used tack sales? Pure fabulousness. You can find some really nice stuff for cheap. Ex: A nice bridle + bit for $35). My grooming box is from the dollar store, as is my box that I keep first aid stuff in. Riding breeches? Ha - I'll stick with some thicker tights.

So no, not really creative - but I still spent a heck of a lot less than a good number of people I know.

This weekend I found a pair of BRAND NEW pair of equistar boots at goodwill for 15$. My size and everything! Not even arena dust on them. Not the best brand in the world but still. Super excited about them

Good ideas for next time!
I think I'm in need for some new clothing soon, I keep growing out of everything! D;

This is great! Any suggestions on a cheaper alternative to riding tights? I'm in Miami until September and won't need riding tights beyond this summer.

Golden Horse, yours is my favorite!

I can really only say that I was much more thrifty as a child. My mom worked 3 jobs and riding in Orange County was a joke. Waaaaay too much money spent on horses out here. So when I showed, I would show the jumpers because you only had to have a helmet that was approved and they didn't care what you wore as long as you looked presentable. So I wore those tall rubber boots, cheap lycra stirrup pants (yes, the 80's ones!), and a polo shirt! Haha! So i'm much older now and make quite a bit more money as a productive adult in society... but I still ride the jumpers cause hunters are, to this day, are still too stuffy and expensive!!

I also plan on using the old braces rubber bands I have to braid his mane.
I love those teeny tiny elastics!!! Only 1 wrap does it! I even salvaged the used ones from the bathroom trash when my hubby wore braces & elastics (haha, kids didn't have to).
