Wow, this has turned into quite the discussion!! Haha
Sara, thank you for answering to upnover, I think you and I are on the same wavelength. And the buckles don't rub if you get them the right size and whatnot. I have not been able to find any in my area, it's driving me insane!
My friend is from New Zealand (sp?) and she says they're everywhere, and she really wants another one, so I figure it'll be a good present :) Most of her tack is yellow, anyone want to have a go at finding a yellow one?
