    Haha. I remember I went to visit my horse crazy friend on vacation and my parents gave me 100 bucks to spend on food and other things I might need while I was there. I was allowed to use a few dollars on shopping for fun. I came out with a new horse sponge, brush, and the most gorgeous, overpriced purple lead rope in the world with green and pink in it.

    Which I don't even use, because it could get dirty. And I can't have that.

    In many areas we are known as tack junkies. Tackaholic, hoarder or junkie, is there help for us? Who cares!

    Foal
    Anyone want to be my sponsor?

    I just bought my daughter a dressage saddle. Now I need a new bridle, bit, girth, stirrups. I pretty much know what I want but I still can't help myself from browsing every website, ebay, etc. and obsessing obsessing obsessing because I spent all my money on the saddle and can't buy anything else for awhile.

    I need help.

    Hello, my name is Dee, and I, too, am a tackaholic. I have two horses of my own, but have three saddles (two identical ones - long story!). Dancer is my riding horse, but Rain is just a yearling. Daughter has five horses - but only one is rideable. She has two saddles. I can no longer get to my sewing machine, and barely get to my computer due to all the saddles in my office/sewing room/guest room.

    My downfall is tack auctions. I just love them. Why by one halter when you can get ten for half the price? I never buy just one lead rope - it's always at least five. Halters and leadropes are always dissappearing from where I left them. The first thing at each auction that I usually buy is a western saddle pad. Not only do I really need them (not), but I need something to sit on - those bleacher seats are hard on my fat old bum! Hoof picks, hoof knives, rasps (can't even use one!), nippers (can't use that one either) but you never know when they might come in handy.

    Saddles - I'm always on the lookout for a cheap/good saddle. I have one saddle that fits my mare fairly well, but I'm always looking for something better. Or that someone might need some day. Or that might clean up and look good again. Or...

    I just LOVE tack auctions!

    The only thing keeping my checkbook out of the red is that most of the horse auctions (which are preceded by lovely tack and junk auctions) are currently shut down around me due to the economy. Also, the only ones within driving distance still in operation are on weeknights, and I have to get up at 4:30 in the morning to get to work.

    I tried easing my withdrawal from the tack auctions on Ebay, but it's just not the same...

    ^^^ I think a few people fell off the wagon with the last support group.

    Maybe the last support group was like one we had on a tropical fish forum that I belong to all it does really is encourage you to get more stuff. LOL

    I was preparing to buy Sunny a bridle, and then I got her vet bill from last week's fiasco and it has forced me put the purchase on hold.

    ........I think I'm going through withdrawals.

    I now have proof I'm not an addict...I just ordered a martingale (as suggested by my trainer) for Bert, while I was there and because it was on sale, and didn't put the post up I ordered a new dressage girth for Bert, because the one I have is a little small, but I DIDN'T spend another $10 on a pink foal halter for Angel, although I was very tempted

    Now I must go because according to the online post tracker the saddle XXXXXXXXWide, I bought for Destiny, and the Kerrits Breeches that I snagged for half price have both arrived in town, so I have to go pick them up
