I've got King's Saddlery in town. They carry working and high end western tack, and also the only place with polo tack around. There is a feed store that carries things like rope halters at the best price, if I need one quickly.

Otherwise, I check out area pawn shops for saddles and bridles. If I see something really good, or really unusual, and underpriced, I grab it for myself, family or friends.

There are some tack stores around here. Usually one in every direction if you want to drive at least a half hour to get there. In my opinion, tack stores are a bit expensive but they make shopping fun. I normally buy tack online though, or use craigslist.

I'm heading out to a "new" tackstore today. Its not new, I just never been there. I usually frequent a store called "Stallion Hill"...usually just to browse. Last time I was in, I did pick up a whip and some polo wraps though.

TSC for little things. Then there's a local feed store that carries some different things for horses and I normally get my grain there. Usually online though. I just hate waiting for it, I'm so impatient!

There really aren't many tack shops around where I live, so I do just about everything online. I often check Horse.com or Jeffers first because they have customer reviews on most of their items, but not always the best prices - so I'll check those two to find what gets good reviews, and then see if Chicks has it. Chicks' prices are the best I've found - my saddle was over $100 cheaper from them than anywhere else I looked.

I would prefer to actually see things in person before ordering them and I have had to send a couple things back, but the few tack shops there are around here kind of suck.

The only online shop I haven't had to send stuff back was Dover Saddlery - Quality English Horse Tack & Horse Supplies for the Equestrian. it's not bad a little expensive though but great tack.
I don't buy saddles or bridles there to expensive

When hubby had his sewing machine he made some headstalls and we would buy silver for them. He also cut our latigos and easy stuff like billets.

Believe it or not, the majority of stuff we trade for on FB or get off Ebay!
We watch Ebay like a hawk for nice headstalls or ones with good silver that we can reuse or build new leather for. You have to know your makers to get a fair price other wise some sellers will try to gouge you. Or try to pawn something off that was made by a certain maker but is just a cheap knock off.

For easy stuff like rope halters, cinches, skid boots, polos, whatever, the store down the road has been cheaper than anything I have found on the internet. You have to really pick through the place to find the better quality because they do sell a lot of crap.

Auctions, consignment at the tack stores, farm supply stores, CL, on line are the places I have bought tack..kind of depends what I am shopping for. Thankfully at this point I don't have to buy tack very often...kid of scary, I almost think I could open my own store lol
