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...
