Talking What do you ''collect''? :P

Ok, as far as I know, all horse people collect one thing or another that has to do with horses... some has millions of halters, tons of brushes or saddle pads.. What's your weak spot? :P

Mine is bridles.. I have 6..or 7 now.. bridles to one horse. And he isn't even properly broken under saddle yet.. O_o
I'm already expecting more bridles too. x)
(both riding cavessons and ''normal'' bridles..)

Always keep your head up, but be careful to keep your nose at a friendly level.

Bits. I have about a dozen different bits...snaffles, curbs, TT's. I always go back to my little S arabian hackamore, though.

Tough call I guess reins, I have maybe 10 pair. Different colors, some leather some cotton some nylon rope type stuff, some split some single. I get a pair and they will be my favorite for awhile then I find another I like better.
It also depends on how long I'm going to ride. Some reins will start to hurt my hands after a few hours not sure what up with that.

just, things you findat the tack store in general
In my room I have 2 halters, a crop, a bridle, a leadrope, some rubber bands (to put in mane) and a pulling comb (that will not be used to pull tough )
oh, yeah, every single item is completely unused, and will only be used on one horse in the next few years at least
These are just the things Ive bought since I had to stop taking lessons...

Probably bits, halters, and headstalls. I was just looking at all the bits I've collected over the years and at last count I had about 35, 10 headstalls and halters come in at 15.

Even with all the bits, I only use 2 regularly, a shanked Billy Allen, and a D ring snaffle.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

well i don't really collect stuff.the most things i have collected are probably hard brushes and bridles.i have 3 bridles.(2 western one english) and i must have like 4 hard brushes and i only use like 1 or 2..i don't really "collect".and half of the stuff i buy i don't use...use it once or twice and then im done.my one western bridle i use all the time.and then theres my english bridle which i don't use often.i guess my main reason for buying bridles is so i don't have to take 15 minutes to take off a bit and put it on another bridle.

If my horse doesn't like you then I don't either.Deal with it!

Definitely brushes and halters. I LOVE halters!
