MARTIN COMMUNITY COLLEGE EQUINE TECHNOLOGY
EQUIPMENT LIST FOR EQUINE STUDENTS
2020-2021 SCHOOL YEAR
WE NOW OFFER MOST OF THESE ITEMS IN THE BOOK STORE!
These items are all necessary to be successful in this program and in the equine industry. You must purchase all of
the below listed things and bring them with you on the first day of class. Your instructors will check to make sure
you have everything listed on this sheet. You could potentially lose points in specific class, if you are missing items.
Without these items, you cannot be successful in your classes or in the horse industry.
You may choose whatever brand you like from any supplier. However, items like the clinician halter and stick, you
need to make sure you are getting the required style/type . For the bridles, spurs, and boots, choose either
western or English style depending on what discipline you plan on riding the most. If you are planning on riding
both English and Western, get both styles.
Consider buying a brander or find some way to permanently label EVERY item. Items have a tendency to
“disappear” if not labeled with your name. The hot branders work on almost every item.
