You have loved those boots for years, but, darn it, the soles are completely worn out! Keep the water from coming in between your toes by bringing them here and having new soles put on. Keep your spouse from shuddering every time you wear those boots with duct tape on the sole. You could throw them out or wait until she does, but avoid the fight and come in today.
If your saddle has the same problem, come in and get it fixed before you blow a stirrup. Those worn out straps under your saddle quietly call for help every time you saddle up. Don’t ignore them and end up stranded on the side of the bleachers. Whether it’s your boots or saddle, we’ll get you fixed up and in business for another 100 thousand miles.
