    Question Noob Here! Need Some Help!

    I will be getting a horse and I need a complete list of anything I will need aside from hay. If it makes a difference he is a three year old smaller mustang.



    Thanks!
    TC

    Yes. But he was trained by a Pro and has gone to two horse "schools". He is very well behaved for a three year old.

    Also is this a good saddle and price? http://www.ksl.com/index.php?nid=218...lpid=0&cat=449

    If I were you I think I might want to spend a little more than 75 dollars on a saddle, to ensure I got a good quality product.
    But that's just the way I see it,
    I have no idea if that saddle is good or not.

    Make sure the saddle fits your horse. I don't know what your horse's back looks like but saddles come in different sizes depending on how the horse's back moves and how it sits on it.

    Synthetic saddles are nice but what are you planning on doing with your horse? Just trail riding? If you are on a working sort of track with your horse this saddle won't last very long. But other then that, yes 75 is a very good price.

    I'd ask his previous trainers or the people that work at these 'horse schools' for help with a proper fitting saddle and a bit that he is adjusted to (also, other tack he is accustomed to). For other miscellaneous things, I'd go to a local feed store and have an employee help you pick out brushes, flyspray, a halter (make sure that will fit right, too) and any supplements that he may need to be/is already on.
    Do you have any friends who have horses? I think it would be really beneficial for you to ask them for help too.

    He has a bit and I have tons of friends who have horses. I live in Weber County Utah we have the most horse per capita in the nation!

    You'll definitely need some grain and possibly some mineral/vitamin supplement (if no grain). And don't forget about LOTS of treats! Lol!
