The bad thing about not having a local tack store is that it's really easy to spend more than I should on random stuff that I don't really need. When I order what I need, I invariably throw a few random items in the cart to either meet the shipping requirement, or because I really want it and I'm already ordering. Yesterday I wrote about a few show supplies that I would like to have for our next two-day show. I got to looking at my show calendar and realized that our next two-day show is in less than three weeks. If I planned to have Quic Braid or a stall chain for the show, I needed to start ordering right now.
I started out by shopping at my two favorite go tos, Dover and Smartpak, but neither one of them had the bucket hangers that I was looking for in stock. My next option is always Stateline Tack who had just what I needed.
I still need the gloves and a new belt, but I am waiting a bit on those. I have a lead on the gloves that I want, and I've decided to go BIG on the belt. This one would do nicely, but for $50.00, I want to be SURE it's the one I want!
