No! Your not rushing! If you are planning on continuing to ride then it's better to have all the proper gear!
Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed.
