It would be awesome to have gear recycled!! There are so many things that could work that have already been mentioned. Everyone has breat ideas now to put it to use!!

I think you could have a lot of options. There are a few things which probably are best to stay like they are. Like the bit and the bridle. But things like the inside of the saddle, helmet, horse boots, human boots, human clothing. But also the saddle pads. You can also recycle fabric to make the saddle pads. And blankets. If an old blanket dies you can use big parts of it to make new ones. And maybe you can even recycle things like the jumps. Instead of wood use recycled plastic. And not everything needs to be recycled but when you own a stable with lots of horses maybe it is a great solution to buy recycled saddles.
Boots
I really wanna find a way to recycle helmets (of all kinds)because what happens after an accident or one gets old? We chuck them! It's all styrofoam and plastic and I really wish we could replace the styrofoam with a different material and recycle the plastic in some was way to make new helmets.
Horse boots, stirrups, buckets, mounting blocks- anything that is made of plastic that isn’t a main safety feature, like a helmet
Buckets, mounting blocks, the plastic part of any brushes, plastic stirrups.
Manfredi clothes are made out of recycled plastic and they’re amazing! I would love to see open front boots made of recycled plastic. Or stirrups such as flex on or freejump since they’re plastic already
Bit
Mounting blocks, buckets, brushes, boots, spurs
Spurs
