What are you planning on doing ? Seems like something fancy?
Do you already have a horse in mind that your shopping for?
you can save 80 + dollars wrapping those polo wraps on your horses legs then going out and buying shipping boots.
Not all horses over reach which is what bell boots are for (as far as I understand them)
Socks make great tail bags.
I Plan On Doing Western Pleasure, Western Horsemanship, English Pleasure, ENglish Horsemanship, Halter,, Showmanship, Trail Riding, Trail Classes

Yea its good to know what you want in a horse, but even if your looking at one particular breed halter size, boot size etc. can vary

I would onlt get the essentials and wait until after you get the horse to get the tack. You're going to be practicing for a while before you show anyways so you'll have plenty of time to find stuff.

I didn't say you weren't ready to show, I meant that you will probably need time to get used to this new horse.

The point here that everyone is trying to make is to wait till you get a horse to get most of those things. Blankets, wraps, halters, etc come in different sizes and you'll need to get those after you buy a horse. Some things you don't even need, just start off with the absolute minimum of what you need, and eventually get everything else you'll end up using. You just don't want to buy a ton of things and it not end up fitting or you not ever using it :)

^^ I agree. Some stuff you simply can't buy until you get a horse.

Everyone, please stay on topic (and for some may be it's time to re-read the Etiquette Policy here).

And just to add... I had brushes, lead rope, and some other stuff that does NOT depend on size/age of the horse BEFORE I got my horse. Although I didn't care for the color much. :)
