Yesterday I walked into my local feed/tack/consignment store for supplements (which I did not end up buying, I could not stomach paying for $25 more there instead of buying from the dealer) and walked out with a Vespucci double bridle for $50!! It said cob on the label but when I pulled it apart it was labeled as full-- got a little worried about it fitting my little guy and thought I could just resell it, but what do you know, it fits!
It got me thinking: what’s the best deal you’ve gotten on something in this ridiculously expensive horse world? I’m a bargain hunter at heart and can’t pass on a REALLY good deal.
Bridle mentioned above.
DeNiro dressage boots (stiff, brushed leather, not even broken in) for $350
My Trilogy Verago which fits both my horses and me almost perfectly was $550. It was listed for $1250, I called the lady just for more information and she told me she rode in it at dressage nationals and for the Gold medal and was more concerned with finding it a good home. I was going to throw down $750 but she spoke before I did!
