    Your Tack Purchasing Habits

    So my boyfriend comes home, first thing that comes out of my mouth, " I bought a new saddle." His reply, "ok."

    Not what I expected. Is yourself or your partner tolerable to dumping money aimlessly into tack and other horsie 'must haves'?

    Well I have to worry about my mother lol....and good thing to or else my checking would be EMPTY!

    In November I bought....2 new bits, a new saddle, and a new saddle pad :) Lets say I am CUT OFF lol. But I am telling her it is a Christmas present from her with my money LOL!

    But really I did need the bits (maybe I did need and the other I have had my eye on for the last year). Scrat did need a new saddle that better fit his odd/wide shoulders. And JJs pad is about 9yrs old and is due to be replaced....and he did good this year so deserves it lol.

    I have a bit, boot (horse and human), reins, and any form of tack addiction :) I need to go to a THA meeting (Tack Hoarders Anonymous).

    My 'problem buy' is rugs/horse blankets. I like the colours mostly, and the fixed neck or the removable neck .... or the nice clips at the front....

    At one time I had 25 and my rug rack fell off the wall..

    I've managed to not buy any rugs now for 18 months, I must be a good member of the THA, lol.

    I gave away one rug, sold two and have had two mended instead of replacing them. I won't get them mended again so once they are ripped again, which will happen as these fields have barbed wire, they will get thrown away.

    I have nobody to answer to as to what I do with my money, but I'm currently homeless and staying in my mothers box-room so really need to be careful.

    Yes, I have a problem and NO I'm not changing it anytime soon. My down fall...saddle pads. I always buy one everytime I go in a tack store or whenever I place an order online, somehow a saddle pad always works its way in there. I have saddle pads I bought 15 years ago and still use them. But, I always match the color of my shirt to the color of my saddle pad, so I'm always on the hunt for new and different colors.

    I also have a problem with the free handouts. My friends will often go through what they have, wore out boots, old tack. I always take it off there hands, why? Because you NEVER know when you're going to need it.

    If I had money, I would have a lot of superfelous tack. But since I'm broke all the time, there's actually quite a few items of tack I need/want. And coming from a VERY non-horsey family (my parents were upset that I bought Aires...and I was 28 when I bought him and had my own job, living on my own with no help from them), I don't get tack for my birthday or Christmas.
