Saddle Shops & Tack Shop

These photos were taken at HITS, 2018.  The first two photos feature small shops that deal mainly in saddles and bridles, etc.  I noticed two things about them:  1) many of the finest saddles are made in France and 2) they are very expensive.  As I recall, the saddles start in the $4,000 range and go up from there. 

The last photo features a tack shop, which sells a wide range of equipment used by horses and riders; not just saddles but also clothing, boots, etc.

I do believe anything to do with horses is an expensive business ☺

I never realized that the horse business is so popular in Florida.

I had no idea how expensive saddles were.

"4,000 range"

Wow!

I know virtually nothing about saddles but I do notice that these don't have horns as they do for western style riding. That may account for their being imports. And...fancy riding, expensive gear.

Sounds expensive, but probably worth it, especially if you have invested a lot of money in your horse already.

Good stores. Caprices cost money, Lowell.
Thanks to you also for your visits to my blogs😊 🙋
Un abrazo.
