Smile Might be leasing a horse?! Need help!

I might be leasing a horse!! :) I do not know which one yet but I will know on Friday, when I go to my lesson. Now on to why this is in the tack forum. What do I need, tack and grooming supplies wise, for leasing a horse? At my stable they provide everything. There's no lease fee just boarding. And they feed and clean the horses stall and turn them out to pasture daily for you. And they provide a grooming box, saddle, bridle, saddle pad, and girth and halter and lead. But I kind of want my own stuff. Im going to use their saddles though because my parents don't want to spend 500$ on a saddle for a horse we might not lease forever. So are there any brands, recommendations or any tips on finding a good bridle and halter and lead and grooming stuff and maybe a saddle pad. Thank you. :) Also I think we would be ordering online. Plus I think the 3 horses she wants me to look at are thoroughbreds.

Okay, thanks! :) But are there any products there that seem to be the best or really good? :)

Hi! Good luck on your lease! How exciting.

First, do you ride English or Western?

Well I just wing it- I read the reviews and such. I've never been dissatified with anything, so far.

When you order online you need to know the size that you will need, so after riding in their tack, you can measure the bridle and order from that.
I have leased for years. I have my own saddle that I have been able to use on most of the horses that I've leased, but usually use the saddle that comes with the horse. I bought my own bridle, though, and then used either their bit, or bought something of my own (with the owner's ok).

A new bridle might satisfy your desire to have some of your own tack.

Hi and congrats! Buying your own tools sounds like a great idea! You should find grooming tools that have worked for you and your comfortable using. And get the colors you and your horse like ;) .

Concerning bridle and headgear you may ask the owners about size and fit, and what's worked in the past for your horse before you order and have to return or worse stuck with something you can't use.

If you happen to use rope halters, I can say that I really like my double diamond rope halter.

It's exciting when there's a new horse on the horizon, so I can see why you're beside yourself.

As far as buying things on-line, I'd recommend Jeffers Equine, Valley Vet Supply, Chick's, and Schnieder's Saddlery. Stateline, SmartPak, and Dover can be kind of expensive unless they're having a sale, although I highly recommend SmartPak if you can get a good deal.

I have a TB, and tend to buy him full horse sized halters and bridles. The only issue I've had is that one bridle's noseband was too low, but I used my leather punch and put more holes in it, and now it fits fine.

bridle, excited, leasing, new stuff, saddle
