I decided to go to a local bimonthly horse and tack auction. They sell new and used items, hay, trailers, junk, and horses. Everything was of varying quality, although I think the 8 million used halters really could have been gone through A BIT FASTER!
I scored a full set of DMS brand (imported from Germany) jumping boots, known mostly as "Hampas" Popular in the 80s they apparently wear like iron as these are in great shape. 6 bucks! I have no idea if they'll fit anything I ride or even if I'll use them, but they're mine mine mine!
Have you gotten a great deal on something in an unexpected place?
