Here are my basic recommendations with current pricing from 6/2015:

1/4" soft adult - $15.50.

9/16" x 12' double braid loop end with popper lead - $33.50.

9/16" x 16' double braid loop end with popper lead - $40.00.

1/2' x 22' double braid loop end with popper lead - $46.50.

If you're only going to get one lead, get the 16'. You can choose your own clips from the hardware store or you can purchase one from them. I do like to have one with the twist clip though.

3/8" x 4' fiberglass stick with string/popper - $30.50.

1/2" sport/loop reins 10 feet long or longer if your horse has a long neck and shoulder.

What I'm really big on right now for developing both horse and rider is long lines with a surcingle. has the surcingle I use for $21 and the best price and place to get the long lines is Double Dan. 3/8" line 26' long. Here's the link..

Many of us horse folk have some ligament/tendon/joint/swelling/pain issues. I can't believe how good the Ruta Graveolens cream from is. Please give it a shot.
