Hey, I'm new to the Horse Forum site and fairly new to the horse world. I've only been riding for the last 3 or so years and this spring I am getting a horse of my own! Once the ground thaws we have to put up a fence and then I can make the big purchase! Yes, I understand horses are a lot of time and money and I know what I am getting into. But in the time from now until this spring I would like to start purchasing items for "my horse." I know I can't get saddles/bridles or any of the big tack items but I was wondering what I could get. If you guys have any good ideas on stuff I should be getting or an idea of what kind of fencing I should use it would be greatly appreciated! Please get specific too, for example not just "brushes," but dandy brush, curry comb, mane and tail brush, somewhere along those lines! Thanks so much! If you could also put what I will need to get once I have "my horse" that would also be great!
