What to Buy For Your Horse's Wardrobe


Your horse's equipment really does depend on where your horse lives, what breed he is and how he is kept.  For this post, I will be covering the things I own for my sports horses who are partly stabled and are clipped in the winter.  

Everyday



  • Head collar and lead rope (I always have spares of these!)
  • Fly mask (I prefer the ones that cover the whole face rather than other kinds!)
  • Grazing Muzzle

Travelling


  • Travelling boots 
  • Tail bandage 
  • Poll protector 
  • Fleece 
  • Leather Headcollar 
  • Quick release lead rope 
A pair of front travelling boots for horses


Rugs

  • fleece (I use this as a lightweight stable rug and drying off horses)
  • Mediumweight stable rug
  • Heavyweight stable rug 
  • Fly rug (I usually get ones that have UV protection!)
  • Lightweight turn out rug 
  • Mediumweight turn out rug
  • Heavyweight turn out rug 
  • Under rug

Boots
  • Turnout boots (I recommend these so much!  They have really protected my horse's legs from cuts and the mud in the winter!)
  • Stable boots or pads and bandages (I bought one part for my horses.  I use the front ones on my smaller horse's back legs and the back ones on my larger horse, I only put on the back to reduce filled legs).    
  •  Over-reach boots (for horses who overreach or with strenuous work).  
  • Medicine or dressage boots (for schooling, hacking and dressage). 
  • Brushing boots or Tendon boots (I prefer tendon boots for jumping).  
  • Ice boots 
If you want to learn all of the boots that you may need for your horse, you can read my blog post 'How to Choose Which Type of Boots Your Horse Needs'.

  • Lunging line 
  • Breastplate or martingale

  • Fly Veils
