What advise do you have for anyone planning to buy a horse i.e. things they should buy before etc. ?

Don't buy saddles beforehand, it's incredibly important that the saddle fits your horse correctly so you don't want to fork out heaps of money then have the saddle not fit. But making sure that you will have the finances to keep your horse healthy, and somewhere to keep it are good starting points.
Make sure you have money and time to take care of him/her for vet bills,hay,board,grain,etc.
Make sure you have a halter, lead rope, some brushes and a hoof pick, hay or grain, a bridle, and maybe a saddle (but it might not fit the horse properly if you buy it ahead of time)
