Talking Useful things?

I got a bunch of christmas money and I want to use it to buy some things for my horses. Does anyone have any suggestions? I went on a wild rampage at the greenhawk sale, but I still have money and I figure that if I don't spend it on my horses it will go to something stupid that i really don't need! Does anyone have any idea's of useful things I could get for my horses?

Thank-You!!

I have a tendency to go a bit wild with my money when I get it, so I've started buying the stuff that I need first. There's no point buying a $200 bridle if your horse has a perfectly good one anyway.

Does your horse need a new halter?
Do you need new breeches or jods?
Hoof picks are something that I always lose, so there's no harm in buying another one of them.
Ooh, what about a slick 'n' easy grooming block? They work so much better than curry combs and really help get all of that winter coat out.

I tend to think the opposite way... if I have a bunch of money I buy the horses nice, fun, expansive things I normally wouldn't spend money on. It is a gift after all :)

I don't know how much money you have, but putting it towards a pair of clippers would be a good investment.

A funky new saddle pad, or whatever you need in the way of riding and horses. :)
