    Default Buenos Aires Tack Shopping?

    I will be in Buenos Aires for a week at the end of the month and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for tack shops to visit? I know La Casas de las Botas is in the area, but I was wondering if anyone knew of any places to pick up tack? Argentina is so well known for their leather goods, I was hoping that I might be able to find a deal while I'm there.

    Casa de las Botas for sure.
    There is also Arandu.
    But that is more polo geared. But I do believe I remember seeing stuff other than polo in there too.
    Ask around, I'm sure locals can guide you and there are also people on here that live there who can guide you!
    Have fun!!! BsAs is a very cool place, my family lives there. Where are you staying??

    I'm in Bs As right now! Get in touch with Faraway46. She was gracious enough to meet me today to help me with a pair of boots at Casa de las Botas. Definitely recommend them, btw. Shop full of gorgeous boots! Hard to walk away with just one pair

    My preference is Walton's for boots - more traditional styles than Casa de las Botas though.

    A fair amount of tack stores here in Capital - 3 or 4 in the Belgrano/Las Canitas area that I go to regularly.

    These are the most popular.Both stores are about three blocks away from each other and a 15min cab ride from downtown.

    Any other info you need, mail me (it's in my profile).
