When I first started buying tack for Elvis, I didn’t see any point in buying anything name brand or nice. I would get the cheapest of the cheap stuff off of Ebay, and think I was a whole lot smarter than people who spent mega bucks on fancy stuff. Stupid them.
Then I decided I needed a Western headstall in light oil with silver conchos. Had I shown Elvis western? No. Was I realistically going to show Elvis western? No, but I still needed this head stall. Instead of spending $200+, I went on ebay and bought one for around $40. I’m so smart – go me right?
That was all fine and dandy until I was cantering around with my fancy new headstall and the rein broke. As in broke off. In my hand. While I was cantering.
Since then, I’ve decided that quality really does cost more but it also lasts more. With this philosophy in mind, I was surveying my tack and equipment this weekend as I cleaned out my tack trunk to get ready for the move.
I have a lot of stuff. A lot of stuff I don’t use, and a lot of stuff I don’t need. So I’m putting a ton of it up for sale, and setting it aside for a saddle fund. Or nice Equifit boot fund. Or something. Fewer things, but higher quality. Now I just need to get rid of the stuff! If you see anything you like and want more info, just shoot me an email and I will send you a picture. I have pictures of most everything, and prices are pretty flexible and include shipping unless otherwise noted or you’re international.
