You should hold off on buying your tack until you have the horse first. I bought a show saddle for my show season years ago for the school horse I was going to buy, the sale fell threw and I never bought the horse. He took a 46" cinch. By a very lucky chance that saddle fit the horse I eventually bought years later, however the cinch was 10" too big and caused both my horse and I a lot of problems, such as saddle slipping which lead to discomfort and lots of bucking/rearing. It's better to get your horse first and measure him properly so that you can buy him proper fitting tack. I know buying stuff for your first horse is exciting, believe me I still go hog wild at the Pleasant Ridge tent sales, but it's better for you and your horse to have tack that fits and is comfortable.
Thank you for feeding us years of lies. Thank you for the wars you left us to fight. Thank you for the world you ruined overnight. But we'll be fine, yeah we'll be fine.
