The deal I found today!

I was running errands with a friend today and we stopped at a garage sale. My friend says "Hey, do you need any saddles?" Me - "Um, well no, I have a dozen." Then she says "But you don't have a dressage saddle & you did just get a horse that has dressage training" Lo & Behold a very moldy hadn't been used in years dressage saddle. Couldn't find a maker's plate but it is leather.

After a quick 15 minute clean, this is what I picked up for...wait...wait for it...$20! Now on to shopping for leathers & irons! The best part though, it fits Missy perfect!

The lady asked me to come back because she was sure she had a few more things. Her daughter rode for one semester at University and left the stuff in her garage. As it turned out a few more things was 4 halters, 3 quilted dressage pads (2 toklats), 3 fleece english pads, a brand new in plastic bareback pad, and 2 sets of reins - FREE!!!! I am going back after a student's mom gets off work to try out a 15'5" Blue ribbon close contact for $15.

I feel slightly guilty for getting the steal of the century but hey, can't pass up opportunity when it's staring you in the face right?

So jealous! I (along with probably everyone else on here) wish I could find a deal like that! Hopefully all the tack works out well for you and that's great that the saddle fits Missy :)

From what I gathered, she had no idea what she had. She did say she wasn't happy her daughter had left all of her "horse junk" in her garage and moved across the country.

I left her my number in case she comes across more "horse junk" lol!

Thanks! I'm having an awesome week! I got a new car that parallel parks itself and now horse goodies! Horse goodies trumps new car though!

Now that I have the saddle, I reckon I need to learn some dressage

OH, one of the dressage pads is embroidered with the trakehner brand marking, if anyone has a trakehner and might like it, let me know..I'll make ya a deal

I don't know, a car that parallel parks itself is pretty cool, if they come up with a truck and trailer combination that wil reverse park itself I will be camping on the doorstep waiting to buy one.
