I want more stuff! :(

But I have:

1 English saddle (just sold the Western-I bitterly regret it even though I never use either one)

3 bridles- One ugly nylon brown one, one rusty show bridle with metal fringes, and a broken-but-fixed-kinda-bridle, English, black

3 saddle blankets. White, VERY DIRTY English one, black Neoprene (I loves it), and a pretty Western one I don't need

2 lead ropes-both in OK condition

3 halters- 1 personalized one, one that matches a lead rope, and a red rope Nylon halter (love it)

1 pair splint boots

2 helmets

1 girth(trying to sell for a neoprene one)

1 breastplate

1 bareback pad (The best thing EVA!)

I reviewed my post.

I need more stuff.

You can tell a gelding. You can ask a stallion. But you must discuss it with a mare. -Unknown

Part 3: people who work with my horse, because they are stuff too lol
Me (okay I don't pay myself) owner, includes complete horse care and riding, the obvious
My mother (don't pay her either) cleans his stall Mon-Fri and turns him out, grazes, or hand walks him if she has time
My trainer, who either rides or lunges him Mon-Fri morning (off day on Tuesday) and gives me a lesson on Sat
2-3 clinicians I regularly work with who visit the barn about every month
1 massage therapist (I refuse to use the awful word masseuse)
1 chiropractor
1 tooth...floater? Makes no sense to me but there you have it.
1 farrier (only trims because he is barefoot)
1 vet
So basically, I have way too much stuff but I don't really have anything I particularly want to give up. I guess I'll just keep on truckin'.

How ya'll fit all your tack into one tiny little tack cubby amazes me. Between my Dad and I (I keep my horses at his house), we have one tack room that is 12 feet x 12 feet and an additional harness room of the same size; both are stuffed full. LOL. Let me see if I can name some of the stuff we have.

12 equine animals total

4 retired: (one mini burro, one draft mule, one TB, and one QH)
6 rideable: (2 mustangs, 3 QHs, and 1 Perch)
1 driveable only: (Bessie)
1 foal

Now for our stuff

8 western saddles (7 roping, 1 show)
1 english saddle
15-ish cinches of different sizes from 26" to 38"
6-ish flank cinches of different sizes
12-15 saddle pads/blankets (western and a couple english)
40-ish bits (both snaffle and curb)
1 bosal hackamore
25-ish halters and leads
3 roping tie-downs
10 lariat ropes
6 breast collars
30-ish bridles/headstalls
3 sets of mecate reins (1 horsehair and 2 nylon braid)
3 extra sets of split reins in 8' length, vary between 1/2 and 3/4 inch width
3 handheld hole punches
6 sets of harness (each set for a team of 2) varying in size from mini-burro to large draft
4 full sets of sports medicine boots (front, back, and bell included in each set)
2 sets of splint boots
1 set of skid boots
various brushes, curry combs, hair brushes (human used on mane and tail), and other grooming items
1 large bottle of bute tablets
1 bottle of banamine
1 bottle of penicillin
1 bottle of antifungal shampoo
1 jar of Bickmore gall salve (must-have for all galls)
various other vaccines and medications
various sizes of needles and syringes
1 large bottle of Neatsfoot oil
1 anvil
3 sets of hoof nippers (all different styles)
8 rasps
2 shoeing hammers
1 nail crimper
countless horseshoes ranging in size from 000 to 2 in standard horse and several draft sizes
1 set of aluminum TB racing shoes (from many years ago)
countless snaps, spare leather, saddle strings, extra reins, lengths of chain and harness leather used for various reasons, coils and rolls of spare rope and twine, and basically anything else that might someday possibly have a use. LOL.

I know I have forgotten tons of things but......

wow! Are they expensive where you are? They are pretty pricey here, which is why I haven't got one yet... =[
The price really depends on the brand. Plus I try to get them when they are on sale either at my local tack store, or at online tack sites. The blanket my horse is currently using was only $50 on sale, and is on it's second season of use (with a few minor holes). My most expensive blanket is a Rambo, a gift from my parents, and I was really dissapointed in it. It was destroyed before winter had even entered, but thank goodness for the guarantee. Now I only stick with cheaper brands because I know the blankets will need replacing eventually. My favorite brand is the Amigo, which is on the cheaper side.

I forgot stuff too. I didn't bother to put down crops, meds, shampoos, etc., etc. Just stuck with the "bigger" things.
