The tack room was fairly warm, though, and since my tack has been severely neglected the past 6 months or so, I figured it was a good time to find my Horseman's One Step show my bridles a little love. They thanked me when I was done and I must say they look much better. I'll have to carve out some time to do my english and western saddles later on.
Speaking of tack, can anyone recommend an online tack place that sells nice mecate reins? I don't want fancy horsehair ones or anything, just a nice set of marine rope style reins, and I'm willing to spend a little cash to get a really nice pair. I've seen some for $20 and I just can't imagine they're what I'm looking for. Or maybe they are and I'm so used to spending thousands that I can't comprehend buying anything that is reasonably priced! I have roper reins on my snaffle bridle at the moment and they just aren't cutting it. I don't ride in the snaffle much these days, but I'd like to have a nice bridle set up for trail rides and fun rides in the arena.
