Izzy's vet bill is now almost entirely paid for, and for the most part, so is our trip. All of a sudden, I started seeing tack things that I needed. It's not like I let myself go crazy (those who know me in real life are rolling their eyes as they know I never let myself go crazy), but I did allow myself to purchase a couple of things last week.
The Riding Warehouse just makes everything so darn cheap and easy. That company beats even Smartpak for customer service, ease of shipping, and speed of delivery. I almost always get my order the very next day.
I've been using my rope halter that has rings for reins when I lunge Izzy, which is an entirely different post that will be coming soon. I know I've written about this before, but I like every halter to have its own lead rope. Since I hadn't been using that halter at all, I took its lead rope and put it on Izzy's rope halter (which is relatively new).
Now that I am again using the halter with rings for lunging, I knew I needed a new lead rope that could stay on the halter permanently. I put Speedy's old royal blue lead rope on the lunging halter, and then I ordered a new one (in navy) for Speedy.
I've mentioned before that I only use lead ropes made from yacht rope and clinician style rope halters. Riding Warehouse has a great selection of both. So now I am $40 poorer than I was last week. I couldn't just buy a lead rope, could I? I also tossed in that new pair of bell boots for Izzy!
