College Supplies

This is the list for the college I'm hoping to get into. I'm thinking about buying the stuff a little bit at a time so I won't have to spend 3,000+ right when I get accepted. If you know of any websites that might have this stuff for cheap(ish), then please, let me know! I'd rather all of my stuff have some kind of name brand. And be in excellant quality, but it can be used.

I DO NOT! Mean to discourage you at all, this is just a question - How sure are you that you will be accepted? Biased on that, then I would start buying stuff. For ex, if you're 100% sure, then start buying, but if your a little iffy, buy the cheaper stuff now and wait to get the more expensive stuff... ya know?

Please don't take that the wrong way, it would just help us figure out if you should start buying now..!

I would buy stuff that you would like to have anyway first. Check on ebay. Sometimes you can get great deals. And since you have plenty of time before you need this stuff you can wait it out for a good deal on ebay or a sale at an online tack store. I would get on email lists for all the major online tack stores and your local ones if they have one, so you will be notified when a special sale is going on.

Nah, I understand what you're saying! I really don't know if I'll be accepted. I'm praying that I will be, but it's not 100%. I do have a 4.2 GPA and a really good ACT/SAT score, so I'm pretty sure I'll be accepted. I really hope that sentence didn't sound snotty I work really hard for my grades! Lol! But there's always the what-ifs! So, no, I'm not 100% sure.

But yah, I'll probably buy the stuff I want anyway, like a new saddle and leather halter and the nameplates, but I'll probably save the things, like the sheets and lunging equipment until I actually get accepted. I'll just save money for those things!

Also, do y'all think I should just stick to colors like black, white, hunter green? I know they specify black or dark polos or boots, but should I go hot pink on the lead ropes? Either hot pink or lime green?

No, you do not sound snotty! hehe

And as for all the tack, I would go with all black (but that's just me!), and for your lead rope I would get a hot pink one!

Well, I'm going to be in the hunter/jumper program, so all my tack (anything leather) will be brown. Boots/wraps that aren't leather will be black or white, unless otherwise noted. But I think anything that they don't specify colors for will be pink or green :) My grooming tools are lime green already. They're Oster, so I'm not getting new ones! I'll probably get one black lead rope for shows, if I make the show team.

So yeah, all show stuff will be neutral colors. But anything else, I'm going with pink!

I have a wintec pro jump close contact saddle that i'm selling in wonderful, like-new condition. Its $500 plus shipping and comes with moveable knee blocks and a whole gullet kit(may be veryyyy helpful when riding different shaped school horses)
By the way, what school are you looking to get into?
    07-16-2009, 01:24 PM
Oh gosh, I would jump on that, but the college doesn't allow synthetic saddles. I'm trying to get into the University of Findlay in Findlay, Ohio. That's my first choice. I have a few back-ups, but they're not any cheaper! Lol! All of my choices are out-of-state.

Oh haha. That is so much stuff to bring. I almost went there but it was just not my taste. I'm going to Lake Erie in painesville Ohio.
