Hi all. I am so excited about the prospect of buying my first horse and I am starting to plan ahead for the equipment, such as tack, that I'll need to do some western riding. Really, all I plan on doing, at least at first, is trail riding. I used to do that as a kid and loved it so much.
For you western riders out there, what is the basics western equipment I'll need to get started? I know I'll need a saddle and bridle, but I have no idea about buying either one of these. What about halters and grooming supplies. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I'm totally excited... can you tell
P.s. I'll be boarding my horse, so I imaging I won't need as much equipment as others, but I'm not sure.
