So I will be keeping my horse at a neighbor's barn down the road from me. They don't live there, and my horse will be by herself albiet for some companion animals in an adjacent pasture. I'm basically starting from square one and wondering what I need to get going. I don't get her until August, so I have some time. Right now I have a saddle, halter, reins, saddle pad, lead rope, and a couple brushes. I know some of the basics I still need to get but am wondering about the weird things that maybe you overlook starting out - or that you don't realize you need until you need it.
A friend of mine told me to get some Hoof Flex for her, but I think I'm going to wait until the farrier sees her and see what she says.
I'm also confused as to what to get for feed? She is 19 and I'm not sure what supplements or grain to get and where to get it!
Anything helps! TYIA!
