    I use rope for lunging. She ignores whip completely as she's trained to stay still if something hit her. :)

    So I expect I'll be getting a horse in the next few months. I have to save up from my job, which I'll make $400 a month, and also I have to buy new equipment. I had plenty of equipment from my old horse, but when I sold her because of school, long story, the barn owner gave away all my stuff! It wasn't fair but I can't do anything about it. So I need ALL new stuff. I want to have my equipment before the horse so I'll know I'm prepared. So I'd like everyone to double check my list for me. All I'm out to buy is the basics, and later on extra things will come.

    I should be getting the horse in the winter, so things like flyspray and flymasks wouldn't be an issue.

    -Saddle (I can't decide western or english. I ride both styles, and I'm just as good in one as the other. I guess it will depend on how the horse is trained, but I'm mainly looking at horses who ride both. I usually ride english in the winter primarily, and western in the summer.)
    -Saddle pad
    -Girth (Unless I get it with the saddle)
    -Bridle, Reins and Bit (Unless it's provided with the horse)
    -Halter and Lead (Unless it's provided)
    -Mane and tail comb
    -Stiff brush
    -Soft Brush
    -Curry
    -Hoof pick
    -Detangler (Manes and tails can get so knotty I figure it's essential.)
    -Winter blanket (Although they arn't required here until about January and February, so I might be able to hold off on one.)
    -Lounge line (It's not really essential but it can be really helpful to lounge before a ride I've found)
    -Helment
    -Any special things the horse might need, like a tie down.

    I need help on the saddle fast, haha, because that's what my mum wants to buy for my birthday and that's on Saturday.
    You forgot the most important item of all, and not cheap, a good vet check and dental exam. I can't believe how many people buy a horse then two weeks later are on the horse forum asking what do I do my horse has !!! The seller never told me there was a problem with this horses health and had bad teeth. Best of luck.

    It's always a good idea to keep some spare money horses are unpredictable and as tempting as it is to spoil your horse rotten try and keep some spare cash
