You guys aren't much of a support group, you are more of enablers! Anyhoo, I still join because we all have so much in common.

At one point I counted over 50 bits. That number has dwindled since I loaned them out, and can't remember to who, I WILL replenish once used tack sale season starts.
-I have 6 western bridles
-3 English bridles (oldest is 27 years old)
- 6 pair of spurs
- 6 saddles (4 western, 2 huntseat ~ both are broken) and 1 horse
- 13 pair roping/barrel reins
- 16 pair split reins
- 3 draw reins
- 7 girths
- 5 lead ropes with chains
- 3 without chains
- 27 saddle pads
- 2 measuring sticks
- 4 nylon sheets & hoods
- 3 cotton sheets
- 4 cotton duck winter blankets
- 4 sets sport boots
- 6 bell boots (never used)
- splint boots
- skid boots
- 13 polo wraps (just in case a horse has an extra leg)
- 2 show halters
- 4 breastcollars
- 2 tie-downs
- 1 rope
- 1 cooler (never used)
- 2 German Martingales
- 2 running martingales
- 1 standing martingale
- 1 sidepull
- 1 training surcingle
- 3 lunge lines
- 17 curb straps
- 4 pair hunt stirrup irons (extra)
- 2 pair western stirrups (extra)
- 1 set shipping quilts
- 3 twitches
- 4 non-working clippers
- 1 working clippers
- 8 saddle bags, the ones for trail rides (never used)

Yet Odie's halter is over 12 years old, and the only one he has

Currently we are searching for a new saddle for my daughter. Because we are good friends with the tack shop owner, we now have an additional 7 hunt saddles stuffed in my 8x10 tack room that I'm supposed to share with 3 other people.....

P.S. I forgot to mention I still have the 3 saddles from friends that we tried out that are still there
I thought that hoarding was keeping old junk. All this stuff sounds like good stuff except maybe the non-working clippers, and they might come in handy for parts. You are not a hoarder. You collect awesome stuff.

Carpe Diem!

Celeste, I like that line of thinking. I am not a hoarder, I am a collector. Yep, going to go with that.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

3 english saddles, 2 western, and an endurance for only 3 horses, of which only 1 is used often.. I probably have over 10 bridles, 15 bits, saddle pads galore, etc etc... I started selling some of my bad habit though to pay for the new horse in the driveway.. Ha ha.
