I had to make a list for my husband, too! I've always been into horses, but gave it up when I moved to Colorado to be with him. Now we're getting another one, and he's so nervous about how much everything will cost!

Some more information might help as far as answering this question. I'm getting a yearling next month, so obviously I don't need the tack and stuff right away. My list includes more things like halter and lead rope, grooming supplies, first aid stuff, etc. Obviously you'll need a bit more stuff if you're going to be riding right off the bat...

-Make sure you get a bit!
-Lunge line
-Lead ropes
-MTG (trust me, it's amazing stuff!)
-Shampoo & Conditioner
-Shedding comb/blade
-Lots of brushes, hoofpicks, & don't forget those face brushes!
-Stirrup leathers are good to have
-Boots for the horse owner!
-Sunscreen (for those pink noses!)
-Rubber stirrup thingies (I forget what they're called; they go on your stirrups lol, & they're black) - good to have in!
-Girth for sure (how else 'ya gonna ride?!)
-Horse book (very good to have/helpful)
-A riding instructor or trainer; very important. Some riding instructors even teach you how to care for your horse!

-Leg wraps

Ride more, worry less.
