Do YOU have a tack fetish?

I thought it would be cool if everyone just kinda listed all the things they own, I really do have a tack fetish, as you will see by my list, even more considering I don't have my own horse. It's ok, if you don't know exactly what you have, a rough estimate will be just fine, lol!

Here's my list:

Western Pleasure Saddle
Barrel Racing Breast Collar
Pulling Breast Collar
Mule Butt Strap
Two leather bridles
Two rope bridles
5 Rope Halters
Two 9' lead ropes
One 10' lead rope
Two 14' lead ropes
12' lead rope
22' lead rope
French-link snaffle
Sweet iron snaffle
Reinsman mullen mouth bit
Billy allen curb
Two Low port short shank curbs
One Medium port short shank curb
3 leather curb straps
One double chain curb strap
saddle blanket
saddle pad
fancy 5 star saddle pad
treeless saddle pad
treeless saddle
33" cinch
two nylon tie-straps (only one w/ holes)
two nylon off-billets
Bareback pad

hoof pick
3 stiffnesses of brushes
metal curry
two different kinds of rubber curry

I actually don't have too much right now.

- lunge whip
- lunge line
- nylon halter
- curry comb
- hard brush
- soft brush
- mane comb
- tail brush
- hoof pick
- about to buy an english saddle

That's pretty much it right now. I'm saving my money to get A LOT more stuff - all in lime green or ice blue!

Showjumping is like dressage with speed bumps!

I'm with you I couldn't even attempt to list all the horse stuff I have. We had to buy a little shed just to keep it all in
Besides I'd have to clean out my tack shed and do inventory to get a list.

For my own mental stability I won't post all the stuff we have for 2 Well, that and my hubby might read this!

Lets just say I have 5 saddles... :roll: And enough tack to go with them...and too many I better quit!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Probably enough to outfit an outfitter! I just had to expand my tack room. I'm getting ready to go up to the tack shop now. My good saddle doesn't fit the new gelding!

When I'm at the tack store they know to take all the tags off whatever I just bought. "What Honey? This old thing? Nah, I've had it for years".

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

I have so many halters, it's not even funny.

Ride more, worry less.
