First-Time Horse Owner Checklist

Before I say anything else, I want you to know that I am a member of the Amazon Affiliate program, meaning that I make a small commission when you purchase something using one of the following links. This doesn’t increase the cost for you, but simply helps me cover my horse expenses! 

That said, I put together a few checklists of products that I recommend that will hopefully make it as easy as possible for you to find great horse products for whatever you might be looking for:

Essential Horseback Riding Products

English Horseback Riding Attire 

Other Things Most Horse Owners Have
