What should be on my list?
 
I'm compiling a list of things I need to get for my horse for tack and grooming.
Would anyone like to help me out?

I'm going to be starting right from nothing, and I don't want to buy a bunch of stuff I won't use, so I'm hoping you can help me list what items are necessary to get me started.

I've got a list of grooming tools made up , but what about saddle pads/blankets etc?

Can you recommend types or brands that are reasonably priced and for every day riding, just trail and normal farm stuff. I'm not showing or anything at this time, its just for pleasure, so they don't have to be show quality.
I just need stuff! LOL

Desitin is the one thing I always keep on hand.

I would get a few diff types of pads. I prefer matching tack.

I get buy on purchasing very little extra stuff. I forget what I have and I am a horder, so if I dont let myself buy im fine. My biggest purchases were my horses and my trailer.
