Hello. My name is Linda and I am a tackaholic. I don't even ride a horse, but I am the mom of one very special 14 year old horse crazy girl. We don't OWN a horse (we half lease) but currently have 2 English saddles, a western and an Aussie. I just bought my daughter her first dressage saddle on ebay
for more than I planned on spending, though I hope to sell her first English saddle on ebay within a few days which will keep us a 4 saddle home. My daughter has at least 2 of everything, and more leather cleaners, sponges, brushes, picks than I can describe. She has 3 trunks--a tack trunk at the barn, an old trunk we brought home because the part where it locks broke, and her summer camp trunk. She has tack wipes and bit wipes, she even has butt wipes (whoops---under the tail wipes). I get insomnia and go online to buy stuff and then don't remember what it is until it arrives in the mail. I love searching out sales. I obsessed for a MONTH over which stirrup leathers to get her only to end up buying the ones I saw from the start. Now that the dressage saddle will be here in a few weeks, we will need a dressage girth, bridle (Thank God its not hard to match black), bit, stirrups etc. The obsessiveness drives me crazy to the point of headaches. I need a 12 step program. I need a meeting. I need a sponsor (or a sugar daddy). Thank you for listening.
