So I am in the big city for a course for work. The course runs from the morning to about 4:30pm, and I don't generally know many people at all here, so I spend my evenings in my own company. I don't mind the solitude, it's actually kind of nice sometimes to just get to do what I want, when I want. Yet, one thing that I always end up doing when I'm in town is go to the tack stores! Even if I'm not going in for something specific, I always have to go take a look, or expand my tack store list, or take a look at new breeches, saddle pad, brush, bridle, or what have you. It is a horrible horrible, yet wonderful and joyous thing. Today I went to two new shops and found some extra long reins for mister Koda (his neck is a LOT longer than my last horse's!). Tomorrow I'm most likely going to hit up the regulars (Greenhawk and Tudor Tack Shoppe) to see if I can find some nice galloping boots for him. I tried the ones I have on him, and they just barely fit, so I doubt they would stay on during a cross country run.
Does anyone else have this tack shopping addiction? I have way too many bridles for one horse, saddles, don't even get me started, and blankets out the wazoo. My horse will be better dressed than I am since I really dislike shopping for clothes for myself (except for boots, I really like boots for some reason...).
Help fellow bloggers! My bank account is dying in the sea of tack shops!
