The second place I found in Claremore, I discovered by accident.
I had asked Gertrude to find some antique stores close to the Davis Museum. I figured the Dearly Beloved would be busy there for a few hours and I could spend my time browsin' a couple of antique stores to while away the time. As I pulled to the curb for the first Antique Boutique...there was "The Horse of Course"! How could I NOT check out an establishment with such a clever name?
As I stepped in I realized this wadn't your ordinary tack shop. Oh No, my friends. This shop, in the middle of small town Oklahoma, carries a full line of English tack and apparel. Plus ever so many little and big must have items to make the rider's and horse's life easier. They also have a Master saddler on site. The best thing about this store...other than the name? It smelled like LEATHER.
I just had a ball browsing the store. When I'd made a circuit, I talked to the manager about leather products and how hard it was to find “pretty” gun leather. She and I talked about women and guns and how important it is to be able to defend yourself. I think she may be a convert.
So if you find yourself in Claremore, or if you need some nice tack, visit The Horse of Course.
