Default Equestrian or Saddlery store

Does anyone know of one here in SA or in Spring Branch/Bulverde area? Maybe New Braunfels or San Marcos area too? My husband is dressing up as Han Solo for Halloween (where's the nerdy smilie? LOL) and he needs to find a pair of english riding boots.

There's all sorts of Farm & Ranch stores around. The closest out here is the Tractor Supply store @ 46 & 281. There's a Feed & Seed on Loop 337 by Rudy's in New Braunfels. The big Mac Daddy of them all is D & D Ranch Store, in Seguin, on the access Road of I35. Good luck & have fun Oh, did you just happen to have the "whip" on hand already??? J/K

Don't forget the Bass Pro SHop, they have a large selection of speciality boots.

I know because my hubby is always there looking for new items to purchase!!! It's his thing and that place has tons of "stuff!"

There is also Boerne Stage Saddlery at IH 10 and Boerne Stage Rd.

He might just try some tall black rubber boots- and I only say this because men's english riding boots are sometimes reeeeeaaaaallly hard to come by (women tend to dominate the lower end of the sport!) and are generally very expensive- about $200 minimum. Not sure he'd want to invest that for a costume! I'd also suggest calling Mary's tack and Feed (800-551-MARY) which is out here in CA...but they have a bigger selection of horsey stuff than a lot of other places in the country and if they have any could ship a pair to you lickety split. Good luck!

Thank you for all of the responses. He ended up ordering them online from Dover Saddlery.

Dewwj- I tried to get him to order the rubber ones, but nope, he wants them to be the "real ones". The ones he got were $145, which was cheep considering he has spent over $1,000 on this stupid costume. He had the shirt, vest and pants custom made to his size. Everything else is authentic type stuff down to the Master Replicas blaster. He even got the little thingy majigs that go into the little pockets that are on the belt.

I swear, he is worse than a kid. One of my daughter's costumes was purchased for a dollar from a garage sale. We got her accessories and the other girls costumes at Party City. I don't even have a costume. I might just buy a mask. I am torn between Jigsaw or Chucky. Chucky would work because I could just use it to randomly scare the girls at night through out the year (the two older ones, not the little ones of course).

Dover Saddlery is an excellent company, he should be happy with his order from them. I like Boerne Stage Saddlery for a tack store in the area; it's out on Boerne Stage Road and 10.

Hahaha! That is too funny. I don't even think my husband knows that Halloween is this weekend! For you, instead of a mask, you should get some of those "pretend-ears"....they're cheap, cute, and comfy (get the puppy if you're going for sweet, but wear the bunny ears for a little extra husbandly attention ). Have fun!
