I bought a no name saddle from Greenhawk. It was only 99.00 and it's a gorgeous looking saddle, it's darker. It's been oiled. Fits my butt. However, it's mean't for a wider horse then the ones I ride. I even bought leathers and stirrups for it. I really should sell it.

I also have bridles I've never used and saddle pads. Even when I wasn't riding, I've bought stuff the past few years knowing I would eventually get back to them.

5 halters for my mare.. haha all with matching leads

7 saddle pads.. (though i do use all of them!)

A slow feed hay net, i tend to not use hay nets, I'd rather her eat off the ground, more natural jaw movement.

Saddle pads. I have way to many, but I did get most of them at tack sales, so at least i didn't pay full price?

I also have 4 saddles, 3 of which are not being used. In my defense, the three were free and perfectly functional, and I am trying to sell them.

I bought horse-sized reins when i used to lease a pony, but they came in useful once I started with Hunter, until she broke them on monday.

I got a stable blanket, but all the horses i've leased have been pasture kept and it was free.

And there's probably more that I can't remember! I guess most of my things are just stuff I got that I don't need and knew i wouldn't need when getting, but it's hard to say no to free tack!

I already owned 9 horse halters but I just had to by one more blue one. now I regret it because I don't even use it and all it does is collect dirt and dust!

I have horse makeup for greys and blacks... and I haven't owned a grey in nearly 3 years, nor do I have the intention of owning one again. I was given the makeup 2-ish years ago. I had a buckskin and a bay. I now have a chestnut.

As far as I'm concerned, nobody can have too many halters, leads, or rugs. But that might just be because my filly is a rug wrecker and sets back when tied.

I have millions of bits that I don't use, that have been used once or even not at all. Rugs that don't fit my horse, jumping boots [she's 3... not going to jump for a while yet], I nearly bought a false tail just didn't have the $200 it would have cost... I am shocking!

For myself I'm not entirely sure... Probably the Slick N Easy shedding block (SLICK'N EASY (BLOCK) 35G - Shedding - Grooming) all because I saw it in a youtube video and just HAD to know if it really works (it does!).
Also got my friend a pink riding crop for this coming Christmas... Because it was 5 bucks.

Bridles. I have this weird obsession with buying bridles. I only own two horses and probably own about seven bridles. Considering I only bought my second horse a month ago that means I had six bridles for one horse.

Why do I ride horses? Because I look at my horse, and see my hopes and my dreams.

Hmmm, I have one horse and 5 saddles. Yep, that about covers it.

Lost count of how many halters I have too...some with the tag still attached! I'm a sucker for Buy One Get One Free...especially when you can choose different colors.
Saddle pads too....
