    I just bought this black leather halter with turquoise padding: Perri's Soft Padded Leather Halter

    It is beyond gorgeous, so soft (doesn't even need conditioning to break it in) and comes with a halter tag. If you shop around, they have different leather colors, hardware, etc. I just really, really liked the blue. And shipping was FAST - it shipped on the 27th and arrived today... and I'm in Canada. People in the States can expect their shipment within 2-4 days!

    Oh that halter looks nice....might just buy it EXCEPT I just spent more money on something we really didn't need. I bought my daughter an RJ Classics show coat on ebay (nwt). It fits but doesn't have the stretch she had hoped and of course they don't take returns. I just found another coat in her size which is also an RJ Classics but its the Prestige Collection instead of just Essential. It was less expensive than the first---so I bought it! Now my kid (who has only ever been in one show so far) will have 2 show coats. I will probably end up reselling the first one on ebay or bringing it in to sell on consignent at Horsemen's Outlet.

    My name is Linda. I don't even ride. I am a barn mom and a tackaholic.

    Tackaholism. Its a disease. Not an aventure.

    So I bought another saddle yesterday (at a yard sale, deal of the century woo hoo!) That makes lucky #13. I also got some extra halters, 6 saddle pads, a bareback pad, a girth...then went back & picked up another saddle for a student....then went back today & picked up another saddle for a fellow forum member.

    Yep, I'm still a tackaholic. Best part, the saddle I got for myself doesn't have leathers or irons and I don't have a black bridle to match so MORE TACK SHOPPING!

    Yes. We are ill. We are all very ill. I'm so jealous of your bargains (and we don't even own a horse---half lease only).

    Hi, I ride a horse named McKinley and I am a tackaholic. I fear that this affliction has been undiagnosed for so long that I may never be cured.

    This week I purchased my first dressage saddle. I am so excited, and was looking for so long, however I now have a 'need' for black leathers, a black bridle, and a new french link snaffle (which has to have copper in it for Mick's pleasure) and a (nother) saddle pad. One would think I would need irons too, but alas, I purchased them several weeks back.

    It is cooling off, so I bought a bit warmer and a stable blanket (in July), but now I am looking at turnout sheets, hock protection, and of course, the devil himself, winter riding clothes for me!!

    Thank you all for sharing your stories and opening your arms up to me as a fellow sufferer. Hey, cute bracelet!! Is that your horse's name engraved on there?? Where'd you get it??? Uh ohhh.... I'll be back

    Exactly!

    So I decided that since we've all admitted to being addicts that we needed to adopt some form of the serenity prayer. This is how my version would go

    "God grant me the serenity to buy the tack I really don't need,
    Courage to tell my husband,
    And should I not, wisdom to know where to hide it."

    MH- Ilove the new prayer! And wow I wish I could find awsome stuff like that at yard sales around her. My mom and I go at least once a month but I have never seen any horse stuff.

    It was a fluke guys. I just got lucky. I suppose it makes up for all of the tack I've paid full price for over the years!
