What should I bring...

When going to look at a new horse. A lot of you know I am looking at a grey 4 year old AQHA gelding and hopefully buying it. I am going an Saturday to see him.

Anyways, we are going to make just one trip out of it, so if I like him, we are bringing him home.

We are bringing:
-the trailer
-saddle and saddle pad
-halter and lead (although he does come with one)
-emergancy horse first aid kit (incase we need it on the way home)
-transfer papers

Is there anything else we should bring, or need to bring to try him out, or bring him home?

An ink pen?

Maybe a lunge line, whip, and gloves to see how he does on the ground, and a hay bag to hang in the trailer (especially if it's a long ride)

And a helmet I never get on strange horses without one!

Thanks, we will be bringing a helmet, a flag for chasing it around to see how it moves, and cash. I never thought about gloves, so thanks!

I am thinking they will have a bridle there for him, one that fits and he is use to, but I will bring one just in case.

Thanks for all the replies!

I almost never bring the trailer when I come to see a horse, but if you are driving a long ways then I would.

If its a long trip, shipping and bell boots. A leather halter that will breakaway should he panic in the trailer. A fly mask for the ride.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.
