The saddest part is that I have sold a great deal of my tack this year, but I have bought tons more stuff as well....I'm not doing this right! Lol
I'm in the total same boat here! Also, my jumper has slightly shorter legs than most horses so whenever I find boots that fit him perfectly I tend to buy the same brand over and over again in different colours - you always need white, black, and purple right? My obsession really spans to brand name stuff, if I get a really good deal on it I HAVE to buy it.
Recently I have been getting rid of tack as well. I have been having to say to myself "I haven't used this in a year and probably won't use it again - I should sell it" especially when it comes to bits. I had quite the collection. I had almost 45 bits, 10 being different variations of Happy Mouths. I had several that were the same bit but they were either in different sizes or bits my horses go in (for example, I had and still do have 2 D ring french link bits, one is a cyprium bit and the other is just a regular korsteel - one is on my show bridle and one is on my schooling bridle, way too lazy to switch over plus it gives me an excuse for having an extra bridle). I kept telling myself ONE day I might have a horse that would go in that bit
