Don't forget guys, Christmas is coming!

Hi, my name is Reann and I...am a tackaholic.
Instead of asking for an ipad, iPod, gaming, what have you, I ask for tack. Headstalls, bits, breastcollars, and saddle pads.
I know, I have a problem. But my gelding looks SOOOOO good in brand new tack! Is that a crime? Haha.

Hello everyone. My name is Rachel and I am a tackaholic.

I have 2 horses, though up until July only had 1. I have 3 saddles, 4 bridles, 7 saddle pads, 4 halters, 3 leadropes, 4 bits and I am shopping for more stuff now.

I went into the tack shop to get a pair of breeches the other day, but instead got 2 pair of breeches and half chaps. Looked at boots and shirts too, but daughters behavior cut my trip short. I then went to a horse show where this guy was selling some really nice halters and riding shirts for a good price. Thank gooodness again, my daughters behavior pulled me away.

It's not just tack that gets me. I enjoy buying my horse's supplements every month, a new hoof pick, or new brush. I lvoe finding new grooming supplies like a good whitening shampoo, or the useless wash mit that attaches to the hose i boguht 3 months ago and havent used.

I have a problem.

Also, my birthday was a few weeks ago... I asked for lessons. I think i'm going to ask for shipping boots and bell boots for christmas. I need to haz it :-/

Nothin' wrong with that!
I asked for a tack set from Bar H equine. I have yet to receive an answer.
You probably need the trunk more than I need more junk.

I went down to montana to pick the tack I had bought online and drop some clinic flyers off, well thats what I told myself. Saw a hunting store with the word "tack" so I called in, now I have another winter blanket for Sammy, only paid $40 for it but really didn't need it. I now tell myself that it will come in handy if the other one gets wet, it will come in handy if he is sick, it will come in handy for some other reason.

Hi everyone. I am a serious tackaholic.

I went into Adams horse supply for a running martingale for a show...
What did I come out with?

Figure 8 noseband
3 bits
fleece saddle pad
new set of polos
a new girth
and of course...that running martingale.

I have alto..ALOT of bits, but everytime I look at catalogs, I circle atleast 10 that (as my friends would quote me saying) "oooohhhhh Beans would work so nicely in that one!"

My mama calls me The Bit Queen....

And everytime I buy something, I feel disappointed, because there were 90 other items I had to leave behind...

It's truly sad.

I was a dreamer
Before you went and let me down.
