Do you have a good trainer/instructor? That is the first thing that every new horse owner needs! Also, you will need a halter and leadrope, if you don't have one, first aid kit (towel/sponge and wound aid stuff, list here Making a Vet Kit) grooming kit (Curry comb, hoof pick, body brush, dandy brush, and mane brush) and a bucket to put them in. You will need a saddle, with stirrups, stirrup leathers, and girth. And a bridle with reins and a bit. Also a pitchfork and wheelbarrow most likely.

Also other random things such as fly spray, conditioner, shampoo, etc...

emergencykit with things such as vet wrap, swat, iodine, bute, gauze, a sponge, sissors, pliers, wire cutters, a flashlight, we always had letex gloves too. also things like bee sting and insect bite medication are good to have.even a stethescope and thermometor just in case of emergency and your vet needs an answer while on the phone.

other things are an extra halter and lead (we have an extra for each horse) of course your grooming box with dandy brush, curry comb, rubber curry, hoofpick, and mane and tail brush.
a good thing to have aer piggin strings--theyre really handy when you dont have a fast way to fix a fence...wires also really handy to have.
and your tack. but thats on a horse by horse basis.
you can never have to many buckets!

you could buy the kit already made and just add to it that is what I did I trail ride so a fist-aid kit is a must

ride a draft and see the world differently
