Exclamation Vegan Complications..... HELP?

I have been riding horses since January 13, 2003 (lol, I still remember the date... its pathetic) Horses are my life, and my passion. Over the summer I went vegan (I have been a vegitarian since 1st grade) and my parents said they couldn't afford to have me riding horses, and being a vegan, I had to choose, and I couldn't let animals suffer just because of my love for horses, so I chose vegan, but I have saved up alot of money, and I will continue babysitting to earn more, but anyway, does anyone know of any good vegan tack , rubber boots I can buy, but I need ALL the tack. Plus gloves. I refuse to use leather, but I can't live in a world with out horses. I will pay for my tack, and all that if my parents buy me lessons, I think this sounds reasonable, but I need a way to present myself. Anyway, I'm desperate to get on a horse, and go for a nice canter bareback! I haven't been on a horse in half a year, and I am greiving! PLEASE HELP ME! I will be SOOOOOOO GREATFULL! Thanks!

Have you tried looking on ebay or craigs list to see if there are any used or cheaper new ones you could buy?

Don't know what discipline of riding you're going to do, but there are many synthetic saddles now available for all disciplines. That goes for bridles also. Same for boots. Wintec comes to mind for saddles ect... I have a wintec all purpose and western.

All I can think of are synthetic saddles and bridles (wintec, kincade, etc.) and maybe sme of the treeless saddles that are made of material, althought they would be a lot more pricey.

Why did you have to choose between being vegan and riding?

I would imagine because being vegan is pretty pricey.
I attempt to eat organic but it's usually quite expensive and not too much available here.


Like everyone else said, synthetic.

Thanks, ya it was because of the cost of being vegan plus the added expenses of buying a bunch of vegan tack... I'm the only horse person in my family, so nobody really gets it.. Plus I'm the only vegan.

Ohh...yea, maybe in Kansas watching what you eat is more pricey. I will not consume any animal or animal by-product and I don't seem to find a drain on my pocket for it.

You wont even use the barn tack that is leather? Or do you have your own horse?
