Everytime I see this title I think it says blood stains. I'm wondering if there is something you can spray on your chaps to keep them from bleeding onto the horse?

VelvetsAB - I do like Bahr's and Greenhawk, but you are right, they can be hit or miss. I tend to use them for my necessity items, or when they are having a sale. I am from the GTA, and there is a small tack shop near the barn I board at called A Bit Equine. They don't carry a lot in store, but almost anything can be ordered in, they have great and friendly service, so I do a lot of shopping there! I also like the EFO store, it's mostly apparel (casual and show) but their prices are pretty unbeatable. The other one I love, but don’t frequent very often because I find it pricey would be Running Fox. What about you, what are your favorites?

Farmpony84 – Good question, makes me wonder if the 'leather protecting sprays' you can get at shoe stores would help at all? I do think however, like the above posters mentioned, it is the boot polish that is transferring, rather than the leather itself bleeding.

EFO is great for show shirts and jackets, but they don't have a big mix of breeches. Pleasant Ridge, although it is almost a more western store, does have a good selection of stuff. Brubachers, which is run by a Mennonite family, is really good for every day stuff like supplements, halters, pails etc. There is a small tack store in town(Kitchener), "The Tack Room", much like the store you described...they are small but are willing to order stuff in.

I have been to The Tack Room! Fairly close to where I am, they have a pretty decent selection for the size of their store. I almost forgot about that place! I have heard of Brubachers, but have never been there - where is it located? Sounds like we are fairly close in location (I'm from Cambridge, but board out of town) - small world, isn't it!

Brubachers is in Wallenstein...It would be 40 mins to an hour for you to get there depending which way you took and traffic.

You are the closest of anyone that I know of! Wellington-Waterloo Hunt Club has their kennels that way.
