    I still stand that it wouldn't matter if its $6,000 and not just $600, nor how messy the HO is.

    That is just poor judgement, i wouldn't want anyone who thinks like that near my horse or me.

    I feel sick to my stomach that someone would actually padlock a horse into its stall. I dont care what the reasons or the other side of the story is, that is just terrifying to even think about.

    Amen to that cowboymom, illegal as it is, that would be my suggestion too. They hardly seem like they'd a.) REALLY care that they were gone. or b.) kick up a stink about their dogs at large being...

    It makes me so uncomfortable when people ask how much things cost. I find it very very rude and never know what to say without sounding like a snob, a weirdo or a mumbling mess.

    Are you sure it wasn't Kiln Saddlery? I've heard of that in the UK and they do their own branded saddles as well as being a retail shop.

    I bought a cheapy bridle from the UK for a work bridle, i think it was about $80 inc postage to Australia. It's actually nicer than my $500 show bridle! I would buy more if i could find them again!
