Saddles and Tack

Hobbies are an interesting subject. I once heard that to start any hobby with the basic supplies, you can expect to spend about $1000. Then again, some hobbies can cost a little more. Fast cars, fine art and any sport related to a horse falls into that slightly more expensive category. At first you think a little hay, a little water, some grass in the field. What more could a horse need? How about stable fees, vet fees, saddles, tack, and stuff I don’t even know about. Oh boy. 

These western saddles and tack are just a small sampling of what you can find at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. Even if you don’t ride horses, you can’t help but appreciate the craftsmanship and details in a sport that many take a great deal of pride in.
