So I知 getting a horse sometime in the next 6 months. And like any horse lover about to get a horse, or has their own horse, I知 constantly browsing for the best deals on tack, like which tack shop offers the best tack for the best price.
Now my mum really wants me to buy the tack second hand, and I知 ok with that, because I will save money. But is it worth it in the long run, because buying new I think, will make that tack last longer, depending on the condition of the second hand saddle . I also know where the tack came from, what it has been through, they offer a saddle fitting service and they have a warranty. But buying second hand will save me a lot of money that I could use for other horsey gear. But what are your opinions? What would you suggest?
All comments appreciated.
