I try not to go into tack stores, otherwise I'll use the mortgage money to buy stuff I just MUST have.

I mostly buy online, so while it's still tempting, I don't have all that lovely tack staring me in the face, wooing me with its wonderfulness.

I went on the Stubben website for something, and of course got caught up in all the lovely new saddles. After I closed the browser I needed a drink, a cigarette, and a cold shower!

My name is Golden and I DO NOT HAVE A PROBLEM

It is only reasonable to own 2 western saddles, and 9 English saddles, it was 10 but I sold one this weekend.

I think that everyone should own a huge collection of western headstalls and English bridles, because you never know.

Bits, yup, every horse has different needs so need a pile of them.

I swear that I never bought all the halters that are in my tack room, they're breeding out there.

Hello. My name is Courtney and I am well on my way to becoming a tackaholic. The last time I set foot in Greenhawk, I made a conscious effort to leave my wallet in the car.

... and then ran straight to the saddles.

I am currently putting off a trip to the tack store for a new saddle pad because I know I have an extra couple hundred in my account and I know it will disappear if I set foot within a 10 foot radius of a tack store.

My name is Heather and I'm a tackaholic. I can justify the 9 english saddles in my tack room as lesson stuff (okay, so only 4 of them are lesson saddles, the other 5 are mine) but why do I need 4 western saddles too? I only have 5 horses, so unless they are going to wear three saddles each,well...

My problem goes far beyond collecting though. The hubby mentioned the other day that I really should clean out my tack room and get rid of what I don't use. I'm sure the look of abject terror on my face was quite amusing to him. I am like Gollum with his Precious. (Sorry, random geeky LOTR reference.) Nobody can have my tack. It's mine, all mine!

Can anyone direct me to the closest meeting?

Hi. I'm Mandy and I'm a tackaholic. I have one butt and a dozen saddles...and if I count the little ones for lesson kids, my gpa's that hasn't been rode in decades and the antique for looks saddles in the house...EEEEK! I think I might have a serious problem.

I have a stubben and love it! My problem is not the tack shop, it is ebay and all the horsey stuff you can get on there most of the time with free shipping.

Yep, me too. Mine was manufactured in 1975, but it's almost as lovely as the day it was made. I bought it 'nused' from someone on CL.

My name is Wendy, and I'm a tackaholic, and my main addiction is halters, leadropes, and saddle pads. I have 1 horse, 7 halters, 9 lead ropes, and 11 saddle pads. BTW, I'm currently looking for anything blue, hahaha.

My name is Katie, and I am a tackaholic. I love saddle pads. I have over 50 in all sizes, shapes, and colors. I rode Jumpers for awhile then dressage, so it is only reasonable that I should have every color of saddle pad for each discipline...Right?

I am crafty about my ways to the tack store. My mom grew up with horses so if she takes me she knows that I do not need another saddle pad or bell boots, breeches, ect. My dad on the other hand, doesn't no anything about horses, so if I tell him I need a new saddle pad, he will say okay because he doesn't no any better. Muwahaha!


I am in love, with what we are, not what we should be.
