Starting a small horse supply business...

I am looking to start up my own small horse supply business. I am asking for your input on what you guys buy the most of? I am looking for responses of anything except feed and suppliments.
This will help me understand what I should be looking to sell more of.
Thanks so much guys!

Where are you starting business??
Online? In town?

Oops, sorry. Online.

Well, that's a good start.
I will usually buy things that will often break or I will grow out of
(blankets/sheets, riding boots, horse boots, show clothes, etc.)

"Well, that's a good start"
Was that supposed to be sarcastic? I didn't think it mattered that much where it would be...

Anyhow, thanks for your input. I thought blankets and sheets would be good.

I would stock unique things... Halters/blankets/saddle pads in unique patterns and colors... Stuff that isn't just black/blue/brown/red...

Any thing unique. Cool colored halter, pads, polo wraps. To be honest, do you know hard it is to find nice unique polo wraps? It's driving me bonkers. I'm not very good a sewing so I can't make my own. :(

Thanks for the replies!

I will look into unique stuff. Now that you say that, it IS hard to find things that are different!

I'm always looking for some casual clothes to wear that are meant for equestrians. All I ever seem to find are polos, it would be nice to find something else!!

If you are not going to carry the 'come back every month' type items (like supplements) you are going to have to find a unique way to get your business.
