I wanted a new saddle for a new horse so I tried one that really suited me. About a month later I went back and bought 2 more. One for a spare in case my new saddle breaks and another spare in case my spare breaks.
I had 6 saddles and only one horse but I am down to only 4 saddles now. I buy any used blanket that is about his size and probably have a dozen for him.
One summer I spent $5500 on 2 saddles, thought they were too nice to use so I let them sit for years. I sold both of them virtually unused.
