New horse, starting from scratch (almost), what are the essentials?
I'm sorry if this is in the wrong place, but I wasn't sure where to post so I'll start here! I'm going from no horses (have owned previously) and always doing full care board to a new horse and self-care only. I'm a little rusty and have to admit, I was a bit spoiled with full care and I guess I didn't fully realize all that gets done in a day, but I'm excited to spend more time with my mare and be the one to really care for her, and not just ride. I still have my saddle and pad, but as far as all the other little things I just forget what the essentials are. What else do y'all recommend that's needed for self care, also? Just the basics for now. I know the barn has water buckets available and hay feeders, but I think that's it. Thanks!
