A fabulous way to source out that piece of tack you’ve needed (or simply craved!) is through the Bits ‘n Barter website. The site is laid out in a simple way, with the option of bartering your own item in exchange for something else, or you can simply purchase the item if available.
Everything from blankets, saddles, boots, bits and more are advertised, and members are encouraged to post their own items for sale/exhange. Why pay for something new when you can most likely find it used for a fraction of the price?
