Shhh! I wont tell if you wont!
So i was thinking today as i want through all of my horsey stuff how many horsey things i have that are completely ghetto-rigged. My best example is my show coat, it is perfect for what i do, plain black, right length, and a flap in the back with some give for jumping. sounds perfect right? hehe well my mom bought it for 10$ at a consignment shop, and its DKNY, witch is not horsey at all. Ill post pictures one i find the camera!
:lol:So now im curious, how many of yall have wonkey substitutes to save same money in the oh so expensive horse world?:lol:
My tack box likes to pretend that it is a tack box and not something I picked up at the local lowes for less than $50.
I also plan on using the old braces rubber bands I have to braid his mane.
hahahah same with my tack box! its just a big tupperware with two locks at the front and a handle, soo much cheaper than the ones on dover. hmm braces bands thats a good idea! if only i still had braces:lol:
My medicine/first aid box is a dog dish with a compartment underneath for storing dog food. We put things we need to use daily, like bute if they were taking it, on top and other bandages, etc. underneath.

Contico 1320 Deluxe Wheeled Storage Locker
this is the one i have, but i got it quite a while ago haha like 4 or 5 years (it holds up well!:lol:) so i cant remember the store i got it at. Its not incredibly priced, but 34$ isint that bad either! but it looks like the shipping is a pain...:-(
anywayyy heres some pictures of my "show" jacket, you would never even know!
We find our hacking jackets at op shops. Some of them actually are Dublin or other horse brands which was a fluke. We also pick up matching tie/vest for each season as well. Sorted with a new look each year for $20 tops.
My riding pants are just tights from Valley Girl, I have one pair or actual jods for comps that don't have holes in them lol.
I have 2 tack boxes, both smallish plastic boxes for $15 and $30 from a bargain shop. The kind with the end handles that fold over and lock the lid on? Yeah. They're really good.
I used to use old towels and bath mats as saddle blankets when I was younger. Now I just have the one which is starting to fall apart. I think it's time for a new one lol
I haven't actually got anything non horsey but my human hair spray I use for Tess. Braces bands are excellent! Im gonna go to the ortho and say "ummm, I need more bands for my braces" !! :D GREAT IDEA!
Hehe for real I need to go ask for braces to get some bands!
Amir: aw man I wish we had a shop like that that sells horsey brand stuff for cheap! I'm jealous haha!
