    Default Wanted: Tack stolen, need basic tack and equipment

    I had all of my tack stolen, and sadly cannot afford to purchase brand new stuff! I’ve developed severe epilepsy over the past year and am out of work and on a very limited income as a result. So, I am hunting for functional equipment at reasonable prices, or even stuff to borrow, so that I can continue to ride friends’ horses. It doesn’t need to be fancy or show quality. I’m looking for a bridle + reins, snaffle bit (preferably 4 3/4 - 5” happy mouth or a copper french link), 16-17” saddle, saddle pad, 38” girth, etc. I generally ride english, but would be interested in western tack as well. I’m located in VA, near Washington DC.

    I’m very open to suggestions regarding places to find good used stuff as well.

    Thank you all so much in advance!

    I have a bridle I can send. You can PM me if you want.

    Have you checked with your insurance company to see if your tack is covered? You may be suprised so it is worth checking! We have had my husbands tools stolen out of a truck and the auto insurance company covered it. So check with your auto insurance if stolen out of your trailer, or home owners insurance if stolen from home/barn, etc.
    I had a happy mouth bit, will check to see if I still have it.
    To ride a horse is to borrow freedom.

    I have a Crosby PDN I could probably part with, and a cob bridle. I have some extra pads as well PM me.

    Equislover, that's a really good idea. Sadly, however, I don't have any kind of homeowners insurance since I don't own a home. I was in college at the time it was stolen. Not sure if there's anything else that would cover it?

    Magic, I sent you a PM. Thank you all so very much.

    Possibly your parents' homeowners insurance, if you were still considered a dependent. Or renter's insurance. And if you rent and do not have renter's insurance, you really should. It is cheap.
