Good website to find semi-cheap tack etc. And I need weights for my horses legs.

I need a website for semi-inexpenssive tack. And I want to put weights on my horses ankles because he does not pick up his feet enough and it causes us to trip. And we almost had a pretty bad fall the other day. Does anyone know where I can find these? I heard if you put weights on them for a while and then take them off they eventually pick up their feet because of the light weight.

What kind of tack are you looking for? Because depending if it's western or english recommendations will be different.

SStack carries weighed bell boots. Otherwise world champion equipment had weighted bracelets.
Of all the catalog places out there sstack is by far my favorite, but I ride english mostly. They do carry western stuff too.

Have you asked a farrier about him dragging his feet and tripping like that?

Sounds to me way more like a hoof, lameness, or neurological problem than a laziness problem. I'd have the farrier or vet check him out ASAP. Horses don't like to trip and certainly wouldn't do it on purpose just out of being lazy...

Valley Vet, Jeffers, and Country Supply have good prices.

I would ask your farrier about the way his legs are made... mine can point out conformation faults and link them to his stumbles.... but for websites, just google it.... I found lots of sites with tack by typing in used tack.
