    Default It's a STEAL of a DEAL!

    I find myself going to the Dressage BB when I want to find a good price for something. So I thought I would start the same thread over here. Anything that is a great deal -- from one day blowout sales, to an incredible find on CL, to a really low ebay price on an item, etc. Post them here.

    This is NOT a thread for people selling their own stuff to advertise on!!

    I did think this thread was a good idea though I had no deals in mind when it was started. Now I do, though: Smith-Worthington paddock boots at $29.95:

    This site has amazing prices on Engel sheepskin saddle pads. I paid $89 at my local tack shop - here the same half pad is $59! They are VERY nice pads.

    I have a friend who has turned me on to http://www.classicsaddlery.com

    She says the woman there (Linda, I think) has been around for ages and is incredibly helpful, always good shipping on time, and has some of the best prices for what she's looking for.

    Here are ovation field boots (second down) on sale for 119.00

    http://www.classicsaddlery.com/boots...idingfield.htm

    I highly recommend buying from them.

    Default question re: the Smith/Worthington Paddocks

    Dewey - Thx for posting this link. Question: Do you or does anyone know if these will last at least a little while?? Don't want to get them only to throw in 6 mths. Just threw my Ariats (Quantums) after 8 mths - seams splitting, the entire inside lining around my ankles ripped apart, and the leather around the toe seam was badly splitting.

    Can't afford better boots right now...

    Thx guys in advance for your help

    I have to admit I know nothing about this particular boot, though Smith-Worthington is a fine company and has been in business for years. I used to visit there all the time when I was growing up; they did all my tack repairs. I don't think the boot in the link is one that they make in their Hartford factory. You could try emailing them for more info.

    The boots are such a bargain, though, that even if they don't last that long, you can hardly go wrong.

    Someone with a big pony or small horse should go pick up this steal of a martingale: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Gazelle-Adt-...#ht_500wt_1115

    If I needed a bridle I would snatch this up in a heartbeat too: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Arc-De-Triom...#ht_500wt_1346

    People are always asking about cheap polo shirts. I ordered a couple of these from Old Navy the other week:
    http://oldnavy.gap.com/browse/produc...d=1&pid=685146

    Decent looking pique fabric (not the plain stretchy cotton) and long enough to tuck in to breeches. May only last one season, but at that price, I'm OK with that!

    Default Soft Touch Girth Only $20!

    Just wanted to share this awesome girth that VTO saddlery has on closeout for only $20! And the shipping is only $5.

    Soft Touch Girth Only $20!

    If you were to happen to live in KY or be attending Rolex you could pick one up at their store in the vendor tent. I just grabbed one and am very excited about it. I have never used these girths but have read good things and I don't think you can beat the price.

    Tack of the Day has nice looking hunt coats for $53.00

    And an ATSM helmet for $40 something.

    Worth a look -- the hunt coat comes in a pretty blue and charcoal.

    Default UPdate on the Smith and Worthington Paddocks

    Update:
    Recvd them 2 days ago. $39.90 with shipping (very fast shipping!) for the smooth finish. Made in india.
    Pros: Comfortable riding and walking - especially the padded tongue - no cutting into my ankle front like the Ariat Quantums. No flimsy lining (that will rip apart) so they breathe for summer riding.
    Steel shank, supple leather, slip resistant sole, nice looking, the sizes are true unlike the ariats which depending on which subcontractor is making them can be too narrow to too small.

    Cons - the sole is glued on.

    I got a 1/2 size larger and put Dr scholls gellins for extra comfort.
    I beat up my paddocks so I'll report back as soon as the soles start falling off
    But for the $$ I'd say they are worth it for the budget minded.
