What horse-related things should I buy?
Let me start by saying that I really am not in a place to go buy expensive things as I’m only 18 and have to pay for my oos college butttt horse things make me so happy and I want to start taking the sport more seriously.
I’m currently just doing the jumpers (I haven’t been jumping for very long so I want to see what I really enjoy) but I want to try eventing.
What I’m asking is what should I buy? I currently have an ovation helmet, not very good, keeps me safe but I really need a new one eventually, so buying a new helmet would be smart.
Then again, I love spoiling the horse I ride so I could just pick out a few saddle pads, accessories like that to use.
Or, I could put my money away and save for shows/events this summer before I leave the barns I’m at currently (I’ll visit when I can, but I’m going cross country for school in August)
I’m sorry if I came off as selfish or anything, I just don’t know what purchase to make (or not haha). I really love riding, and I do want to take it more seriously if I have hopes of going anywhere (like moving up levels and such) with it.
