    How much is to much

    As a newbie Im finding it very easy to get caught up in wanting maybe to much tac and equipment. From blankets to different color saddle pads and matching leads, etc... What can I absolutely do without? What is a waist of money?

    Tehehe welcome to the horse world
    Don't worry, I've come down to buying my horse nail polish. Lmao. The basics are really just brushes, tack and saddle pads. But hey, you CANNOT do without a saddle pad of every color ;)
    Its a very thin line of what you need and what you don't, as long as you have the basics so you can ride and care for your horse, then that's all you need. But I would argue you NEED pink saddle pads and stuff. Lol

    Question is: what do you already have and what type of riding do you do?

    Anything you don't have a practical use for is a waste of money. My horsey life is simple. I keep enough tack to have a spare if something breaks or a spare if something is being cleaned (pads or boots).

    I have to agree though, welcome to the horse world, you will be amazed at the amount of stuff you can accumulate for just a horse or 2.

    We have only put up fencing and have started building a barn, to be honest a garage with place for hay and such. We will be getting Icelandic bread and maybe a pony, around here they are pretty much outside year round. We will be keeping them in the fields with a run.

    I only have riding clothes at the moment, tons of them and I can see myself getting carried away just as much for the horse.

    We live out in the country so we will be riding in the forset and on farm land and often.
