Actually... everything is probably going to work out great. My family and I are leaving on Friday to go to Budapest, Hungary, and they have a Decathlon shop there, with a ton of horse tack, grooming gear, and clothes for riders. So I hope that I'll be able to get a pair of breeches (probably not, since I'm trying to lose weight), and some boots as well as using my own money to get a cheap grooming kit or two.

So... seems like things will work out in that department!

Excellent But living in Europe (and Serbia's an associate member of the EU, right?) often makes it easier to bring things in from another country. For example, I know that Royal Mail has pretty good rates for air and surface mail within Europe :)

Heh... Serbia's not a member of the EU, and probably never will be... there are some serious pride issues here... :P

But since I don't own any of these horses, I probably won't be shipping things in anytime soon. Though I might see if my Grandma or some volunteers could bring some stuff when they come. :)

I feel so bad for you! I'd would die without my stable's tack shop. Pretty much what everybody's sad you can use.

Wow, that'd suck not having a tack shop close to you! We have two within a two block radius of each other!

I always use a mixture of rubbing alcohol and water in a spray bottle to make your horses' coat shiny. It really helps if you brush your horse first, spray and then rub with clean rags.

Hope this helps <3

Is there a place that sells dog or cat grooming stuff. I think some general stores may carry a few basics of that stuff, you might get some inspiration from that.
Also as for the hoof pick - maybe you could use the end of a very thick and sturdy comb (just get rid of most of the teeth off the comb)

When I got lessons on school horses we used screwdrivers as hoof picks, not bent or anything. Its not dangerous

I use microfiber cloths as a 'finishing brush'. It works really well to get those little hairs and bit of dirt that aren't picked up by brushes and you can get them at grocery stores.
If you can find scalp brushes like these Google Image Result for http://www.viewpoints.com/images/review/2007/241/1/1188368204-55163_full.jpg you can use them as curry combs probably.
Good luck putting together your grooming kit!
