I'm not familiar with the Ft.Worth area tack stores, but yes, in the Dallas area Horse and Rider or Paul Taylor are your best bets. If I had to choose, I would go with Paul Taylor above all. They have an incredible selection in absolutely everything from scissor snap clips for the ends of your reins to a zillion types of halters, reins, billets, cinches, bits, you name it. Horse and Rider is pretty good. They are a little cheaper both in price and quality. They do carry most of the middle of the line saddle brands like Tex Tan, Billy Cook, Simco, etc. and have a good selection there. Paul Taylor, I have to say, is worth the drive. My husband is lucky they are a 45 min drive for me or I would spend WAAAAAY more time there. I could literally spend all day there. And they also have nice saddles but a little more custom to them although still good prices (like between $600-1200). They don't seem to carry as much of the every day brands like Tex Tan or Billy Cook. Never been to Dover but I sure would like to pay them a visit since I do ride English and western. But yes, they are English. And agreed, I haven't seen much Australian gear around here.
