Retail Therapy

I tell you's DANGEROUS walking into a large tack shop with $$$ to burn! Even more so when I'm unable to ride at the moment as a result from a knee injury I've sustained. Having SERIOUS withdrawals!
Bought myself a new helmet!!! The Eurohunter Hi Lite Pro Plus Helmet.

Here it is:

Anyone have this helmet?? How is it to use? Anyone have any problems with it? Since I won't be using it for quite a while yet, I need opinions!!

Oh, and I also bought some new joddies (with full suede seat) and a couple of arena exercise books! I'm soooo bad! What's your retail therapy? lol

The art of keeping a horse between YOU and the GROUND!

I prefer to go to the feed store and splurge on new buckets and horsey snacks and salt licks. I also like to get halters and leads. I love the tack store but I cant ride now, it kind of makes me depressed to go in there knowing I cant ride my mare.

I can engage in retail therapy in just about any store imaginable. O_O
Horses of course, are the most fun...but I've ended up with to arabian fillys due to a lapse in judgment during one such excursion.

Hi, my name is Shayna and I'm addicted to shopping.

I picked my weanling on a whim, because I wanted a sound horse in the future. I probably should have got him vetted before he came home LOL.

I don't know about retail therapy , but I have a problem when I get bored making just plain hunt cavesson bridles , It takes a day to make a normal bridle and today I spent the entire day just putting a pattern on a noseband and browband ( diddn't make them - just the pattern )

Anyone else have this problem - get bored so make, or do, something completly insane.
