    Depending on what I'm looking for- SmartPak, Adam's Horse Supplies, Schneider's (sstack.com), and/or Valley Vet. I buy a lot of stuff from SmartPak because of their return policy, but when it's something I don't think I'd need to return or if SmartPak just doesn't carry it, I go with one of the others.

    You can sometimes get better deals on smartpak, but personally I love dover. Depends what your looking for. Being the definition of 'horse broke' I also do a lot of shopping on ebay and keep any eye out at barn sales, feed store ads, and forums like this and virginiaequestrian for my area. I love a deal, I just got a pair of proffessionals choice medicine boots for a dollar today at a yard sale, score!

    There aren't many stores in my area with English items, especially dressage so most of my shopping is online. I look for deals on Ebay first, then I shop around a few sites for the cheapest price, usually State Line, Horseloverz, Dover and SmartPak. Big ticket items I almost always just get from Dover or Smartpak because they have an excellent return policy.

    One year I bought a pair of Zip up field boots from Dover, but didn't wear them all winter. Spring came, and I tried them on about a week before my first show of the season. Zipper broke! I called Dover and not only did they send me out a new pair, but because I had a show they sent them BEFORE I sent back the current ones and 2day air with no extra charge, just so I would have boots for my show. Not many places will do that.

    Big ticket items may cost more at Dover or Smartpak, but the service when something goes wrong can be worth it.
