    Lol I know... I've had horses for 10 years. Just haven't been showing much in that time and was SO unprepared for how much it would cost...

    Hahaha yeah. Or a parent who can afford to pay for it all lol. I've paid for everything since I bought Monty, which is probably why I haven't shown at all this season... no spare money!

    You sound like me! I can go into a tack store with money in my pocket and come out with everything I didnt need and forget what I did.. I force myself to wait until I've paid what I need to before I make a grain run or go to get something else I need! :)

    Hahaha we did that today... went in for a flat leather browband and came out with that plus about $30 worth of other completely unnecessary stuff. Almost forgot the browband though.

    It's got to be a female thing I guess.
    So nice to be male. :))
    Summer hat / Winter hat (to keep off sun and rain)
    Every day jeans work for for riding too
    Everyday Summer and winter shirts (and jackets) work for riding too
    Everyday boots and shoes (use for both riding and daily wear)
    All that is requited of our attire or is that it fits. :))
    All that the horse cares about is that the tack fits properly and is in good condition. Like a man, comfort is all they care about. :))

    You do realize that your horse is color blind. :)

    When I retire in 2013 I may have to open a "Tack and attire" store. 10% inventory for men and 90% for women down to color coordinated tack in the color of choice. :)) Might make a better living than I making now with computers.

    Thanks for having this thread. It's made a great start to this day :)

    haha your probabaly right!, when you open that store move near me andi'll buy everything green you have ;) the horses may be colour blind but im not of course if it doesnt fit. Its not going on my horse. Iv been on a constant battle witha sore back finding a fitted saddle allll summer *sigh* not fun. Somebody told me that quarter horse types were easy to fit saddles to. Cody apparently isnt included in that group lol

    The judges care about being color coordiniated?
    Good thing I never cared about shows :))

    That does explain something I use to wonder about.
    Why so few men compete in horse shows and just opt to compete in reining, roping, penning, etc.... (judges in those areas don't care about color coordinating....mostly cattle working attire anyway)
    When I was a kid men use be heavily envolved in all the shows and competitions. Until now I use to wonder why so few men are doing the shows these days (I can blame the judges and the need to be colorful) :))

    Not necessarily colourful (got to suit the horse, can't blend in too much or clash with the horse's coat)... but tack has to match, depending on your discipline. I like it to match anyway. I had a pony that I never showed even once and it drove me mad that his bridle was brown but his saddle was black. I always did think brown looked nicer on him (he was grey) but it was too expensive to go buy another saddle just because the one we had was the wrong colour.

    Most of my horses' stuff does match, Satin's stuff is mostly blue and Monty's stuff is mostly purple (should it be the other way round?? LOL), but that's so I know whose brush/bucket/halter and lead is whose. Not that halters get confused, Satin is maybe pony sized and Monty is in full size for nearly everything.

    Of course I have photos somewhere of me and Monty in the ULTIMATE fashion fail. Me mostly in black with a bit of gold on my t-shirt, and then him in a purple PVC bridle, maroon saddle pad, day-glo yellow quartersheet... yeah can you say clash? LOL
