    How much duplicate tack do you have?

    I am trying to explain to my husband why I need a nylon halter, a leather halter and a show halter. He doesn't understand why so much tack is needed for my one horse. I am trying to explain to him that yes it has the same function as the nylon halter, but I can't show my horse in that! Duh!
    Why do I have 4 different types and colors of saddle pads for one horse! Three different head stalls, two types of girths, three sets of reins, and so on and so on.
    I think I have one pair of splint boots, though...hmmm...I may need to buy another pair! Hehehe!
    Buying tack is an addiction and I know that I am not the only one out there that buys mutiple of the same things!

    Oh gosh I have loads of stuff.
    Both my horses have 4-5 halters, they each 3-4 coolers and blankets, I have 3 full sets of boots for trailering, I have a huge range of protective leg gear for riding, I have 2 saddles, loads of bridles, at leat a dozen saddle pads, lunge whips, crops, lunge lines etc etc etc...

    Over time all the horses I have owned have required different sizes of gear and tack and since I take good care of my stuff I still have all of it.

    You should always have duplicates of most pieces of tack. You can always use them.

    Of course! Tons of halters, crops, lead ropes, 3 lunge lines, & I have about 3-5 saddlepads. 3 pairs of boots (1 is kinda worn but still works, 2 is for showing, 3 is for schooling), lots of leg gear, etc.
    I think it's good to have more than 1 piece of some things, because they come in handy!

    90% of the stuff I own is stuff I own because at the time I made the purchase I decided I had to have it, or it was cute or it matched one of my many things I own I will likely only use once.

    Everything I own has a practical use for it, it's just I have A LOT of things that's all I'm actually about to sell some of the halters I have on eBay ;)

    I have:
    - 3 nylon halters
    - 2 leather halters
    - 2 pairs of bell boots (velcro and pull-on)
    - 2 coolers
    - 3 bridles
    - about a gazillion saddle pads. Ok, no in reality... 7 that I can count right now
    - 3 fly bonnets
    - 2 western saddle pads
    - 2 cinches
    - 2 girths
    - 5 lead shanks

    I think that's it for duplicates and so on. The rest of the stuff.. I just have a lot of stuff!

    I have tons of duplicates!

    - 4 Nylon halters
    - 2 leather halters
    - 2 wither relief pads
    - 2 show pads
    - 2 square pads
    - 2 lead shanks
    - 2 bridles
    - 2 turnout blankets (one I bought and one came w/ Brickens)
    - 2 turnout sheets (again one I bought and one came w/ Brickens)
    - 2 coolers

    I probably have lots of other duplicates but I can't remember them all. It's very handy to have two of everything so that incase something brakes, goes missing, etc there is always a spare so you don't have to scramble to find something at the last minute.

    Heh, I barely even have any stuff. No money to buy. :( I think at least two saddle pads per saddle would be nice and definitely an extra halter. If I ever get random money I want to get a rope halter along with my regular nylon one. And colorful saddle pads!

    Hey, I can't forget to add how many fly masks I have...& DEFINITELY how many bottles of fly spray I have. LOL!
