    Question What Supplys?

    I am about to buy a horse for eventing. The owner is giving him to me free, but I need to buy ALL his supplys and equipment by myself!(please don't judge whether the horse is right for me, I have a eventing coach to decide that for me)

    What are supplys I need? (I need horse equipment, tack, blankets etc) Keep in mind I already have all of my supplys I just need supplies for my horse! And also keep in mind we are going to be eventing!

    Well, a proper fitting jumping saddle. You can do lower level dressage with that, but I would suggest investing in a dressage saddle too. A breastplate is nice for stadium and XC. A bridle and bit. Saddle pads for schooling and showing. Boots for XC. Full boots, not open fronts. I like Woof Wear. A grooming kit, bathing kit, and braiding kit. Fly mask. Traveling wraps or boots. Leather halter. Nylon halter. Depending on your climate blankets. Polo wraps are nice. And then you have your misc stuff like saddle soap, sponges, linament, a vet kit etc.

    I think that a medium sheet and a heavy sheet would do good for the winter depending on how cold your winters are. A cooler will help especilly at show they cool the horses down much quicker then walking them out so you can trailer them sooner. Boots and bell boots to prevent any future tenden and hoof problems. A martingal. My trainner told me to get one and I saw no point because she said it would help me stay on if the horse had an aquward sopt, then one day she told me to borrow hers for a schooling and it completly saved me over a ditch and I havent jumped without one since then. 3 or four pads one white for dressage (it just looks nicer) 2 for cross country, you can find them in diffrent thickness leavels so you can have a thin one for summer and thivk for wnter. A fluffy pad to make the saddle sit easyier on the horses back. And if you don't have one yet it would be good to eventually invest in a dressage saddle. I rode without one for a while and I was perfectly fine but I got one for christmas and then I noticed my dressgae was going much smoother. A good briddle and bit, you need to talk to your trainner about witch kind would be best for your horse. Some sprays such as fly spray, show shine, green spot remover (for any light colored spots). Some brushes a good bote knife to help pull your horses main. And lots of treatss. :)

    Please don't get a martingale until you can ride the horse without one. The only reason to use one is when you're jumping as a precaution. Martingales should not be used by inexperianced riders just to control the horse.

    Agreed on the martingale - you're safer with a breastplate, or some trainers will have you put an old stirrup leather around the horses neck to hang on to, but that always made me nervous something would happen and cause an accident with that.

    ^I did that! It did help, but I like my breastplate more. And now, I just grab a fistful of mane! Lol
