Congrats! Well my horse likes peppermint treats. And you will need a good curry comb I like jelly scubbers, and you will need a hard brush ( anything from is GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) and a soft brush. A good hoof pick and mane and tail brush (oster is great) and a good detangler( cowboy magic is good). And a great book is the ultimate guide to pampering your horse. It is my favorite (my horse's too!) and happy pampering!!!!!!

If you are showing, Vetrolin Shine. Saved my butt when I pulled the cooler off my lease horse at the finals last October only to discover he was covered in dust. -.- Not fun.

Plus, a good rubber-coated hoof-pick. This could be considered "frivolous," but considering how often I pick Sasha's hooves, having a hoof pick with a soft handle is a must. Duct tape works well for padding up the handle, too. But a good curry comb [I agree with a Jelly Scrubber,] a hard brush, a soft brush, and possibly a wide-toothed comb for manes+tails are what you should be looking for. Natural-bristled [not nylon] brushes work the best, but can be expensive. You may also choose to have a rag [an old dish cloth works well] to rub the horse with.

Have fun with your lease!

Oh cry me a river, build a bridge, and get over it.

I just go to the dollar store get
-a people hair brush
-baby powder (if your horse has white spots) or it's good to absorb sweat on hot afternoon & your deodorant is wearin off lol
-baby detangler
-baby oil (for shows)
-spray bottle (or two!)
-"raid" or "off" bug spray for humans. It works better here!

Clippers (if you plan on showing) and they dont have to be huge. the little rechargable ones wrok great.

rubber bands

vet wrap just in case.


the best BEST, mane n tail brush is oster, the round one with the blue handle.

Show sheen. cheap, and works wonders. its better than using baby oil.

MTG (must)

I suggest having an extra halter and bridle in case they break.

Extra gate chains and latches

toliet paper. (if you have to go in a stall XD)
