Yikes. Just checked out their prices on the Tucker site. $$$!!! I have a saddle bag I never use I'm going to take back to the tack shop and maybe the owner will buy it back or reduce the price of the stirrups for me in trade. She's a really nice lady. Got my used saddle from her for a great price! Checked out Ebay, too. There's one pair on there. Hmm.

I know...good luck with getting a pair for a good price. I have to say, though, that they are really worth every penny. Even mine. Which aren't Tuckers, and don't have the flex bar where the stirrup connects, made a huge huge difference in knee pain, foot cramps and hip cramps. [Like it says, we're the over 40 crowd ]

I think this is a good idea
Should I buy a grooming kit everything comes in the bucket or
Container. Or should I buy things separately

I an going to start riding in March sometime
what kind of cleaner do I use to clean the grooming stuff

Mature riders over 40 - well I suppose I am one such person, but in truth the title doesn't really describe me correctly - so herewith an old photo of me misbehaving in my youth.

The Rosen Kavalier is me - dressed to seduce. The horse a poor mutt called Silver - who taught me to appreciate
Riding Western.

I just soak my stuff in water when it gets too grubby and give it a good scrub, then let it dry in the air. I have a horse-hair (natural) brush that I clean with a little bit of baby shampoo. Most of it's just water, though. I use my grooming bucket as a pail - this kills 2 birds, 1 stone...

I use a bucket and a touch of bleach, let them soak, then rinse well and let dry on wire shelf so they have air flow, find a wire shelf at a yard sale or local second hand store and screw on the out side of the tack shed. You can mount bars for blanket cleaning/drying etc . And yes I have seen age 40 come and go
And was a teen in the 70's ..

I have a strong feeling you will some day, Country Woman! Dreams come true when we least expect it :)
