The title nearly says it all, what new tack has everyone bought recently? For me, here's a list!
Halter and lead rope (black and lime green)
Salt lick
Penguin polo wraps
One K helmet <<<<my favorite
New body and face sponge
Swat
And spray on bandage

Now I want to know what you guys have gotten:)

- A nice red and black heavy-duty fully-adjustable halter (red with black overlay)
-A western saddle...that I have to sell because we mismeasured the seat and it's too small for me
-A custom-made split ear headstall (the size is custom)

If "going to buy soon" counts, then I'm ordering a sweet iron loose ring snaffle bit with copper lozenge on Wednesday, and I'm hopefully buying a 16.5" Circle A barrel saddle...if it fits my monster.

Well just yesterday I got a new saddle pad and a bareback pad. The saddle pad is great, but the bareback pad had the cinch strap part sewn on so far back of where it is supposed to be, I stuck it right back in the box and called the company. Seems it is a discontinued item, the lady was very nice, she is going to check the few she has left and call me back Monday. I usually have pretty good service when I order from catalogs.

Ooh fun thread.

The other day I bought a brand new looking kids' saddle! It needs a new girth.

I'm getting ready to buy a rainbow colored halter and lead rope for my new mare and I'm looking into a new saddle pad.

Ooh, I just got an order from Dover this morning! I was a bit disappointed, though. I ordered two pairs of pants, and neither pair fit me properly :/

But... I got a new pair of gloves!! I've had the same pair of Kerrits riding gloves for about six years, and as of late I haven't been able to get the stink out of them :oops: Anyway I got these in charcoal: Roeckl® Chelsea Glove | Dover Saddlery
I rode in them today, and I was thrilled! I also bought some vet wrap to have lying around, a hanging salt lick, and some leather conditioner. I love getting new horse tack!

I'm a tackoholic and no matter how many times I tell myself I'm not going to buy something because I'm saving for a new trailer I end up buying something xD

Recently I've bought
-A bosal with leather hanger and horsehair stabilizer for $25
-1/2 diamond wool felt pad for $80
-1 of those apple lick it type toys for Jinxx
-mini angel food cake pan to make homemade refills
-Ball feeder that you put pellets in and they nose it to get the treats out.
-2 driving bridles (the first one was "horse" size, but it would fit a draft.
-Paracord to make a bridle (don't know if that counts)
-pair of some nice schutz bros. leather split reins with weighted ends, my favorite 8ft long.
-I'm also going to be getting Angel some hoof boots so we can go driving on the roads.

I think that's all, but I could easily be forgetting something lol.

Because I take in consignments, usually saddles, the owners often throw in a box of stuff "ya may as well have it as it's no good to us". These are like little treasure chests. Bridles, blankets, saddle pads, bits, all the grooming stuff, whips. Altho I haven't counted all the bits (I throw out the rusty ones) but I know there are more than 10 plus 4 mechanical hacks. No plans to buy anything but would sure like to get rid of some of this stuff. Some of the bits are new because someone's money was burning a hole in their pocket. My last purchase was a water proof storm sheet. One of the treasures was a waterproof neck wrap so didn't have to buy one of those.

I bet you could sell the rusty bits as decor items. Well, at least in my area you could.

Don't happen to have any 6" loose ring snaffles, do you? ;-)

A gold & white rope halter, matches my horse :)

Also pretty much matches a gold & white with red flecks 15' lead line I made several years ago and have never used. I bought the line from Marine West, put a leather popper on one end, and had my boy scout son whip a snap hook on the other with carpet thread.
