Exclamation With $70 to Spend....

What should I get??! Grooming wise. Or some stuff that could fill up my tack box??

In my tack box so far I have: 4 Polo wraps, a lead rope and a halter [which ever one she doesnt have on], Bit Wipes, and This hand thing she loves to chase. When I open it It seems so empty :(! What should I buy that could fill it up? I have a lunge line at home but hate to bring it.

In my grooming tote I have: 2 hoof picks, 3 different curry combs, 1 hard brush, 1 soft brush, 1 face brush, 2 mane and tail combs, MTG.
Only fills up one side of the Grooming tote

So far I want to get:
-- a French link snaffle bit - 5"
Korsteel Oval Mouth Loose Ring from SmartPak Equine
-- A 12' lead rope. - Black

So far thats: $35.90

Lol What else could I get... Im only planning on using smartpakequine.com -- Unless if you know a place that sells things CHEAPER and takes checks!

Anyone Willing to help?!

How about a bucket filled with bathing supplies?? You could fill it with a sweat scraper, shampoo, conditioner, sponge, and rag. I have one like that for the summer and it's so convenient because all the stuff you need for bathing is already in one spot and easy to carry because it's in a bucket.

Here's what I would suggest you fill the bucket with...
- Mane n' Tail Shampoo from SmartPak Equine
- Plastic Sweat Scraper from SmartPak Equine
- Mane n' Tail Conditioner from SmartPak Equine
- Natural Sponge from SmartPak Equine

Of course you could choose which shampoo you like and so on, you get the idea.


You could also add a bridle rack and a maybe even a saddle rack (if your tack trunk is big enough) and store your bridle, saddle, girth, pads, etc in your tack trunk.


My last suggestion would be to make a first aid kit. You could get a good sized container and fill it with essentials that are nice to have handy.

Here's some things I find nice to have handy at any moment...
- vetrap
- swat
- cotton roll
- betadine
- bute
- wound ointment
- furall (spray)
- stable bandages
- ductape

Hope this helped some!

Oooo, fun. I love shopping for other people. It fills the void I get when I can't shop for my self.

I think I saw all that stuff at smartpak except maybe the furall. If you type the items in the search box on their site they should pop up.

Vet wrap, for sure! That stuff is amazing and you never know when it'll come in handy. What about a shedding blade? Hoof dressing? Braiding supplies? Cowboy Magic (spot cleaner?)

Thanks everyone! I put hoof dressing on the list as well and splint boots! ill looks into some vet wrap!! Isnt that good for wrapping there tails aswell??

Vet wrap is good for wrapping tails, wrapping around legs if boots rub (they do that with some race horses), holding a bandage or gauze in place...
