Mine mostly from Dover Dover Saddlery - Quality English Horse Tack & Horse Supplies for the Equestrian.. But I don't buy from their website - I go to the store (we have 2 in area).

Ebay (eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices) and Equestrian Collections (Equestrian Collections Riding Apparel). I love them because their shipping is great for where I live.

Anywhere I can get a good deal!! Ebay, Dover (good prices, high shipping), SmartPak, theEquestrianCorner, Horseloverz, tacktrader... and the local tack shop that my friend runs (she gives me a lot of stuff for free or at cost!)

Ebay, Dover, Smartpak :)

Gordon Wright once told a student to take up swimming because he would never be a good rider, that rider was George Morris.

Wow, y'all must have a lot of money to burn.

I rarely buy from Dover or State Line because they're far too expensive, and I've never bought from SmartPak.

I also won't buy tack/riding apparel off ebay, because you never know what the quality of an item is until you actually get it.

Here are some of the websites I frequent:

Horse Tack, Horse Blankets, Horse Bits, Breyer Horses, Riding Breeches, Horse Grooming Supplies

Equestrian Collections Riding Apparel

Schneider Saddlery

Equine Supplies, Horse Supplies, Horse Supply

Horse Supplies, Cattle Supplies, Pet Supplies - American Livestock and Pet Supply, Inc.

Pet Supplies, Dog Supplies, Horse Supplies, Horse Tack, Farm Supplies - Valley Vet Supply

Not all of them have riding apparel, but the first three are great for getting things on sale, and the last three are good for supplies, saddles, supplements, etc.

Well there is that age old addage "You get what you pay for." LOL. I checked your links and the things I would buy from Dover, are just as expensive at the other sites. Since we are talking about apparel and I like buying things suitable for the show ring. When its too old and worn it becomes "schooling" apparel.

Ebay is great for buying A-circuit quality show clothes. It's a Buyer Beware Market for sure, but so is anything anymore. If you are SMART about it you won't get burned. I only buy from reputable sellers who have generous return policies, who post lots of pictures and will usually put up with my berage of emails. Yesterday I bought a pair of Slightly Used Tailored Sportsman breeches and used twice RJ classic breeches for $30 each. Definitely worth it considering brand new I would have easily spent close to $300 for the pair.
