Was this a good deal?

The local tack store was going out of business and had stuff 40-50% off. I had a feeling like some stuff might have been marked up since they have been closed for a month, then re-opened for 2 days to clearance stuff. I bought some stuff for my vet kit, shampoo, fly spray, ect. I also bought an 8' braided (nylon?) reins that apparently were priced at $58, and I got them for 27.79. Is that a good deal or was I just paying for what I could have gotten them for online?

I would say that's a good deal. Do you like nylon reins? I have never tried them...

Well, I don't think they are nylon, more a braided cloth with leather at the ends. I think I could have gotten them online for cheaper, but was just wondering what others thought. I was suggested to get long soft reins for starting my boy. Thanks for your posts.

I got some 7' braided nylon gaming reins from our local tack outlet (always cheap prices) for $12. I think what you paid is overpriced, unless they're some fancy brand name.

So this is what I got pretty much. I don't think mine have the frays at the end.

Ahh, okay, those are cotton braided split reins. Those can go for much more. Check yours to see what the brand name or maker is, then Google it to see what they're going for on line.

If those (in the picture) are what you got including the poppers and the slober straps, you did OK
