Tack rental fee- get my own tack?
I'm leasing one of the lesson horses at my barn. I can ride her anytime when she's not in a lesson, she is mostly a w/t/c horse, so never really worked too hard.
Our barn charges $30/ month for tack rental, and while its not terribly expensive, I wonder if its worth it for me to get my own.
I already have
Saddle, leather and iron
Looks like I will need girth and bridle. My current lease horse is huge, 56 girth, but I'm not sure if my next lease will be the same size, also, only horses that uses a bit bridle has their own (and the manager said I still have to use my own bridle if I want to avoid this fee, I need to clarify coz this doesn't make any sense)
I can get girth and schooling bridle for super cheap on some used tack exchange group, but I know nothing about bridles. Will one bridle not fit the other horse? What about bits?
My current mare uses bitless bridle, so I'm not getting that just because
What do you think? Worth it to get my own?
