Justin brand boots, Billy cook saddles

-I look for a wide range of saddles
Different color leather, uses, prices, used, new, etc
-Same with bridles
-A wide range of all bits, not just the basic curb or snaffle
-Spurs and spur straps
- touch up spray, hoof black, show sheen
- halters(nylon, rope, and show) and lead lines ( with/ without chains)

That's all I can think of right now. Hope this helps!
