    I know, right? It's been cold, so I've worn long socks with my jeans out so nobody in my equine class has seen it. I'm waiting for it to get warmer and someone being like 'Erm.. what?"

    Sorry for hijacking this thread! Back to shiny amazing tack! Next investment: Breastcollar! The place I got my saddle from has a matching one with a headstall, but it's $90. Eh..not happening soon. Hopefully they're decent quality. I got my saddle online and it cost $300 with shipping. It was cheap and I was expecting it to be cheap, but it's nicer than I was expecting. When I switched barns, I had to have my new BO trailer Abby to the new place and he thought it was nicer than one would think for that price.

    I had emailed a couple people who had bought the same saddle (the guy has an eBay store, so I creeped through the reviews) and apparently it's held up for a few years and still looks very new. It's super comfy though!

    This is it.

    Are you suggesting I get that saddle? It is kinda cool in a strange way. I think it could grow on me, or me on it.
    But I don't think I want a barrel saddle. I don't like the high forks and horn. I think a trail saddle is more what I want, In fact, I think I want a hornless wester/trail. I hate it when I am cantering up a hill and my shirt gets hooked over the horn. If I didn't have a belly that crosses state lines it might not happen, but I do and it does.

    Oh no, I was just adding it to the discussion of loudly coloured tack. I must have missed that you were even in the market for a saddle.

    Have you tried endurance saddles? My old BOs were endurance riders and their saddles were basically hornless western saddles that must have been comfy if they had to sit in them so long.

    Bah. Sorry for confusing all of this. Awkward.

    Oh, lets see... As we're moving, my entire study is full of tack awaiting a uhaul truck, and I didn't even know we had that much stuff until I had to pack it all.

    One English saddle
    Three western saddles
    A bareback pad
    About a dozen bridles we don't use regularly (some of these are missing parts)
    About a half-dozen spare halters
    4+ blankets (we only blanket one of our horses, and none of these fit him)
    Several sets of boots (for horses), which we don't use
    Numerous wraps (which we don't use)
    4 western saddle pads, 3 English, 2 "theraputic" pads
    Numerous brushes, picks, leads
    5 bits, 1 hackamore
    A mounting stirup
    About 15 girths of various sizes and disciplines
    Two breast collars
    Boots for riders (that don't fit us)


    Fortunately, we got a lot of it for free, including one of the western saddles, and the English tack we got in a trade. I think I'll be hosting a garage sale this summer, though!

    Ahhhh jealous. My barn has 2 tack rooms. I want to just sit and look through the piles of stuff everyone else has because I have so little in comparison. Except that would be both weird and rather rude..

    I want a grooming set. That would be lovely.

    I have 1 horse, but I have enough tack to spread over many. It is sad, lol.

    Nelson is far better dressed, than I am!

    It's so funny, that I can be in a tack store and buy something he needs, without complaining about the price...well, most of the time......but yet, I go to Walmart and complain about the price of jeans, for me! Lol. Redonkulous. Something is wrong here! :P

    I'm a sucker for good deals on tack. Like I just bought a halter that I don't need for $5! It's a pretty and sturdy halter, too. I do try to save my money for horse emergencies and shows, so I don't buy as much stuff as I would like to. If I wasn't poor I'd have a whole lot more tack. I really want western gear for my dressage horse so we can do english or western. I already have a jumping saddle for when we want to jump. The classifieds here and eBay are my favorite places ever! I spend so much time looking at pretty tack... I like good quality, but affordable, so I'm always hunting for that.

    I used to have more tack then horses but that has changed since we got our own acreage ;)
    We have 6 horses (only 3 broke to ride yet)

    Two western saddles,
    Two english saddles,
    Two western head stalls
    Two english head stalls
    Plus a whole whackload of grooming suplies and about 8 halters with leads.

    And sadly I sold my green saddle pad cause hubby didn't want it anymore and now I have a horse that would look so good with it! I will have to stop selling stuff just cause I don't need it right away... never know what comes next, right? :)
