Tack and supplies...what am I missing?

So I've taken a few years off riding due to being pregnant and then of course having the baby. I sold my horse and all the tack (western) that went along with her specifically. We are going to be moving back east in the next 6 months and I plan on picking back up with lessons, riding solely english this time around. I think after another 6-12 months of lessons I'm going to start looking around for another great trail and pleasure horse, so I slowly want to start building up my tack and supplies now. Obviously I'm not going to purchase anything that is really specific to one horse (saddle, bridle, etc.), but what are some of the items I can work on acquiring now? I still have all of my grooming supplies, I have leathers and stirrups (jointed ones - I severely broke my ankle a few years ago and I've discovered during lessons these are a lifesaver for me). I have a saddle pad, halters and leads, saddle rack, but that's pretty much it. Any recommendation is helpful!

Are you going to be keeping the horse at home or boarding?

A few things:

Buckets
First Aid kit
Fly spray

So much of the stuff you need is dependant on the horse, but good idea to get what you can ahead of time so you don't have to face quite so much sticker shock when it comes to bring the horse home.

Thanks Kenda, that's precisely what I'm trying to do. I will most likely be boarding but still think I should put together a first aid kit, just in case.
