Fellow Tackaholics, I’ve discovered the perfect way to collect tack without breaking the bank! Just this past weekend, I inherited a Western saddle with all the leathers, cinches and irons. My boyfriend took me to see his grandparents, who used to have a few horses. The horses are long gone, but the tack remains… and is now mine. It’s still hanging out in a shed, waiting for me… but when I want it, I have a saddle, some blankets, a couple bridles, some bits, a hackamore and some driving tack. It needs a lot of care and some minor repairs… but I like cleaning tack. Now I have more tack than I’ll ever need, all for the price of FREE.
Everyone, go find some ex-horsey people and your addictions will be satisfied! Your bank account will remain intact and you’ll be doing someone a favor by taking their ‘junk’ off their hands. Rejoice, for I have found the answer!
