The purchase of good, used tack can be an economical alternative to purchasing new tack and equipment; however, purchasing improper or unsafe used tack can be a costly mistake. Caveat emptor (i.e., buyer beware) applies as much to the purchase of used tack and equipment as it does to the purchase of your horse. Take your time, seek appropriate professional advice, and choose wisely.

Used tack and equipment can be a great investment provided you and a professional check the tack and equipment thoroughly before purchase
