Where I lived in California it was difficult to find a tack store because most of them were not in the main part of town. A person had to go out of the way, to the industrial or agricultural area of town where people buy tractors and farm equipment. This Swedish one, however, was in a large shopping center situated in the main part of town. It is much more accessible than the stores I've been to in California.
Another exciting thing about the store is that it carried mostly English riding supplies. Of course I don't have anything against Western; I've enjoyed riding Western and have become more open-minded about different riding disciplines. Nevertheless, I'm an English girl at heart. My heart leapt when I saw gorgeous dressage and jumping saddles, English bridles and pads, and tall boots and paddock boots. All these equipment seemed affordable too, and I think that were less expensive than some things I have bought online in America. There were name brands too, including Ariat, Toulouse, and Horseware Ireland.
|There was bling on a lot of things(helmets, saddle pads, bridles)|
While there, I tried on some helmets(I need a new one) and looked at the affordable breeches and everything else there. I didn't purchase anything, but simply looking was great. I'll stop here when I need some horse equipment!
