Well, it looks like almost everyone has a tack fetish! Mine is compounded by the fact that I work part-time in a saddlery! Lets see:

2 leather halters
2 nylon safety halters
1 leather lead to match one leather halter
4 nylon/rope leads
2 saddles (1 of me and one horse)
11 saddle pads!!! I like the colors OK?!

Confession #2 is; Before I was married, on the third date with any guy, they had to come to the stables and meet my horse(s)! They also had to watch me ride at least one time. Some got MAJOR points for finding their way to a tack shop to pick up treats or a new brush for my baby before coming to pick me up! Some didn't hack it though. But my husband passed the biggest test; he was a city boy from Philadelphia who was scared of horses, and would only pet their noses! He worked his way up to riding Tasha on a trail ride we took together! It took him 3 years but he did it!!

I talk to my horse.
I don't judge a horse if its cute, more so by show appearance.
My horse and I listen to music.
My horse has a favorite song- La Grange by ZZTop.
My horse instinctively bows for a treat.
My horse has eyes for me, like his eyes light up for me.
I have tons of tack. 3 saddles, 5 halters, 3 chained lead ropes, 1 not chained, 3 saddle pads, about 7 bridles, too many bits, all for one horse.
Also when I was a little girl people would say I was going to get married to a horse, and I never denied it, all the while, I was picturing my wedding, the groom was a horse.
When I was a little girl, I used to picture myself on Black Beauty in that running scene when he was first broke.
I cry for every single horse movie I watch, either out of happiness or sadness.

haha, these are too funny! I love the fact that we're all weird.... :)


-as a child I have tried to halter break my dog.

-my best friend and I used to canter around the entire playground together and compete in 'shows'. (how did we ever make friends?!)

-I check equine.com and dreamhorse.com every single day to see what came up for sale that day in my area.

-i find great satisfaction in bathing dirty horses, even more if they're white

-i own 11 pairs of breeches

-I only like most horse movies because I feel obligated to

-when I show my clients horses I secretly want to keep their ribbons even though I tell them that I don't need them

-i think winning an auction on ebay and getting a great deal is almost as satisfying as winning a class at a show

-i don't understand saddlebreds

*sigh* my third confession post....


- I have 2 huge boxes of ribbons sitting in my parents' garage... and I love it :) even though they're completely useless.

- I used to pretend my bike was a horse when I was a kid; it had a name too..

- My childhood best friend and I could jump over 3' on all 4's.

- I would rather blow $500 on horse stuff than anything else.
