Hey everyone..so I need a red and white tack set! my friend and I are joining the mounted patrol for the fair grounds..the actual fair is not until august 2009..but until then they have parades..she has done it for YEARS now and I have wanted to join but never had a horse that i could ride in it:( BUT NOW I DO lol..any way so to do the local parades I need a red and white tack set..I have pics so you know what i mean! If anyone has anything like this...can make something like this...or sees one some where PLEASE PLEASE let me know! I just got finished talking to the women who runs the parades but she says they no longer sell this set! POO! figures right? so here I am looking to all you WONDERFUL folks to help me find one! lol ;D
Maybe you could see if there are any people who are no longer members who want to sell theirs? There's probably somewhere online that you could send pics to and they could replicate it....I'd check ebay for the nylon tack makers, I know they are on there, probably several of them.

ya I thought of that, but most everyone has the tack set for the parades and what not still do it, and have been for YEARS! lol..so no one has any..also I was thinking if I make it, which the women who runs the parades can make them, you just need to get the red tack and the white rope to sew on it, and she will do it for you! which is AWESOME! BUT I need to find some GOOD quality red nylon tack, I looked through ebay, and didn`t really find anything too good, mostly single ply and I need a double..I know jeffers equine and I think valley vet have red tack, but it`s really hard to see what kind of quality it is till you see it, I mean it`s under 10$ so I guess I could just buy one and see:) A girl emailed me yesterday who has a set that she says is the same, of course I need to check as there are a few that look the same but are not the same..lol...but she has a used set she used for drill, the headstall, reins, B Collar and nose band..she says she needs to wash it real good first, but she asked what would be a good price..anyone know?? what a nylon set, used would go for? I know you could get a probably a new set for 30-40 I`m thinking..I dunno
