Smile Where do you shop online for horse stuff?

I'm looking for suggestions on where to buy horse products online. I've surfed the net and found a ton of sites...but which ones do YOU like or would recommend? Why do you like one site over the other...as in, is there really a difference? (besides price and if they deliver the right thing to the right house )

I know looking at the actual thing is better in the store, but that's a pain for me to get to, and I think some deals online can be better than in the store, taking shipping charges into consideration of course.

I personally buy most of my online stuff from Chick's Saddlery. They send the right thing on time (usually only a couple of days to get it). I've also ordered from SmartPak, they were pretty good also. I got my reigns from Smith Amish Made Tack...high quality at a decent price. Good luck in your web-shopping!

Honary "HFA" member...That's right, I'm admitting it!

BTW....That's NOT rain on your windshield!!!!

Chicks Saddlery, mostly. Horseloverz.com is also a good place.

Step one: Mount horse. Step two: Stay mounted.

This is the one I use
Carolina Tack Traders Home Page
If they don't have something you want, call them and if they can get it for you they will. They won't charge you extra even if they have to specially order something for you.

I do most of my shopping at SmartPak. The customer service is beyond wonderful.

I was just looking at the sites put up, and they are great! I am glad I looked at this thread. I am currently looking for the finishing stuff for fair.

I used Chicks Saddlery for a long time up until recently. I had a major issu with their customer service and them not wanting to honor a discount coupon they sent me in the mail. After much debate over the phone they asked me to fax over the coupon. The manager gave a half hearted apology and said they would honor it but I have to mail it in. Are you serious?? Then I would have to place my order. So because of their horrible customer service and not wanting to honor their 15% coupon they have lost more then the 15% on a $40 item in the long run because I will no longer purchase ther. Call me a grump but I call it customer service and alot of businesses are lacking it. Hahaha. I use Horse.com, Smith Bros online, and ebay.

I like horseloverz.com too, the prices are pretty cheap compared to other places, but my order took about three weeks to arrive.

This must be Thursday. I never could get the hang of Thursdays.
