Smile What would you bring?

Im attending Equine Affair in April in Columbus, OH. Im looking forward to buying as much tack as I can (Saddle, Headstall, Breast collar, reins...etc). Would you bring Cash? Credit Card? Check? to pay for these things. I am weary of carrying alot of cash but also dont want to go home empty handed, leaving that "perfect" saddle behind! Im new at buying at expos!

Ready to ride!

A lot of places like that now have debit, or bank card. I have bought a saddle with a credit card in this type of venue, and certainly like to bring a few hundred in cash. Most places will have atm machines as well.
I wouldnt bother with cheques, don't think any travlling horse expo would take them.
Btw, I find you can get a lot of good deals in the afternoon of the last day of the event. The vendors would rather sell than pack it all home again. Big item prices arent set in stone, you can often haggle a bit over what to pay!

I do like haggling! I payed $600.00 for a 1,400.00 ring once, thought that was fun!
