Grocery stores are notorious for setting up their customers for an impulse buy. Just when you think you’re finished shopping, you arrive at the register only to find candy bars, sugary drinks and gossip magazines all within reach.
Some horse owners feel guilty if they leave the feed store without grabbing a bag of treats. Others are addicted to colorful saddle pads. Even if you stay out of the tack store, shopping online can present even more temptations. Who can resist a really good deal on a nice pair of breeches or a sparkly western show belt? You can even justify your horse equipment addictions sometimes. Lead ropes are cheap, and they always get lost, so it only makes sense to buy one in each color, right?
