Buying my first horse, some questions!?
 
I have decided on a horse and have everything settled with the owner. I am still buying supplies, like fly masks and turnout sheets. Where can I get the best deals and find used things for cheap? Does anyone know of a place?

THANKS!!

Ask the horse's current owner. We have a local tack shop that has both new and used supplies.

Check the Classifieds on this website - people will often offer great deals on quality items. Ask his previous owners if you can purchase any tack that fits him already. Ebay sometimes has good deals, equinehits.com has good deals sometimes.

Best of luck! We want pictures when you get him or her!

:]

There is a forum for horse people in my area that is full of classifieds. You can also check tack consignments shops, ebay, kijiji, craigslist, ect.

Congrats on the new horse!

Horse Tack : English and Western Tack at Wholesale Prices TackWholesale.com

Best website EVER. I got a $900 saddle there that had been reduced to $100.

Were do you live? If you live close to an Amish community? If you do ask some of them. There tack is high quality for a good price (on average). I usually use the local TSC or craigslist.

I'd just like to say.. thank you SO much! This site is AMAZING! The best one I found so far. There is a saddle for $149 that I just LOVE and its great quality. Thanks!!

Wow, I checked out that site and I wanted to start buying stuff I do not need. I can't not buy stuff when it's so....cheap. I figure if I have 12 halters lying around, I''ll use them someday.

Whipple - They'll come in handy for your stable dream! :-) I shouldn't even look the site, but I can't resist...

I would also spend some time checking out ebay. You can get some good deals if you take the time to look
