Has anyone ever seen something they absolutely HAD to have...?? lol

I was looking on Craigslist and saw an ad titled "Egyptian Saddle". I was curious what it was, so I clicked on it.

The second I saw the pictures, I decided I absolutely had to have it. Doesn't matter that it's $400. lol

Check it out: Egyptian Saddle

How sick is that?

I'm not getting it though. I'm broke.

Haha, want.

Though, my little QH would look kind of silly in it.

Very neat!

Yes, I just bought something I "had" to have, lol. I saw this Haflinger gelding on craigslist and dropped some hints to my DH (who rides too). After a couple of weeks and lots of hint dropping, he finally agreed! I've had him home a week now and just love him... Even my DH has fallen for him.

That looks cool! I found a pair of light purple polo wraps with fairies on them last year in the used section and I just HAD to have them. The funny thing is, they became the "magic polos" because willow would pick up her left lead when she was wearing them and it took hours of trying if she wasn't wearing them.

Interesting. Wonder how comfortable it really is though...

Horses are God's apology for men.

it says "or best offer....." lol. Yes, I still had brithday money like 6 months after my birthday and I wasn't even planning on buying a new saddle with it! But I saw a sign saying 'Tack Sale', was curious, and ended up finding a gorgeous new Wintec saddle on sale for $250! I bought it, of course, and had to have a matching bridle and reins....there's another $68, and then a new curb chain for $12 since mine was rusty, and it's like UGH! I'm still in debt with my mom now lol!

I work at a tack shop and see something new every week that I just have to have.
Today I saw a gorgeous new leather halter that we're starting to carry, it's padded and really supple. So I bought it.
Retailers love impulse buyers like me.
