I'm very color-coded, so try to have things in matching colors. also, try to carry all sizes of tack, halters, sport boots, etc. try to have english and western supplies for pony, arab, qh, drafts, etc. there are so many places out there online and local that don't carry supplies that will work with young/small horse's and arabs. It's very frustrating.

No, Vegas was not being sarcastic.

I agree with providing tack in all sizes deff. some thing that will make your store more profitable.

it's always difficult finding breeches and clothing in larger sizes. Also, short length in half chaps and tall boots. If you are not the "model" size rider you can't find anything unless its really expensive.

The outside of a horse is good for the inside of man.........unknown

Cheap breeches! Can you PLEASSSSSSSSSE sell breeches for $15? Even if they're simple riding tights. I would stock up on lots of them :)

Also, low-rise breeches would be a huge incentive for me. Granny pants are so uncomforable...

I agree with others about having unique patterned/colored stuff. It would be fun to have bright, interesting saddle covers, and saddle pads for schooling. The same hunter/black/navy get incredibly boring.

When you make the sight, let us know!
