It sounds like your horse is going to have everything he could ever want or need. Just wait, in no time you'll have a collection of one thing for him. Like me with six bridles for ONE of my horses. I couldn't think of much that you didn't list that you would need right now. But that will change when you start riding. Or when accidents and injuries occur. I would suggest getting a set of polo wraps or vet wrap to have on hand just in case, and having an extra halter and lead. Have you made sure your saddle is going to fit him? If you want to save a bit on money, I might suggest looking out for any package deals. Sometimes some brands like Mane 'N Tail will sell a set of grooming products altogether, and I find those easier on the wallet because you get everything. I also recommend Cowboy Magic grooming products. I use their detangler religiously! I would recommend Duraguard and Ultrashield by Absorbine for fly sprays, you might also want to get some SWAT (I use that religiously too.) I'm so glad that you got an OTTB. I'm a huge fan of off track horses, you'll learn lots!
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.
