Five Things to Purchase For Your New Horse

After buying a horse for yourself, what is the next best thing to do? Go shopping for your new horse, of course! 

At the top of the wishlist should be a bridle, halter, saddle pad, grooming kit, and a leather care product. (We know your current tack cleaner is probably ten years old).
