10 under $20 – Stocking Stuffers for the Trail Rider and Horse Camper
Your outdoorsy giftee likely has some sort of fire-starting tool, but he or she is unlikely to have one as effective and as elegantly simple as the Uberleben Zünden Fire Starter. Made with a hand carved hardwood handle and with a thick ferrocerium rod that will last for thousands of strikes, this is a gift the camper will use for years. It comes on a lanyard and with a separate hand tool perfect for preparing kindling and drawing sparks. – https://amzn.to/3oIYNga
Trail Horse Training Manual
If you’re looking for a new trail horse, or mule, and want a tool to cut through all of the subjective platitudes offered by sellers, or if, like me, you want a way to quantify how your animals are progressing in their training you should check out T.R.A.I.L.S. – Trail Riding Assessment and Informational Learning System: Buying and Training Fearless Trail Horses. https://amzn.to/379sq4E
When you’re setting up camp at night, feeding horses at dusk, or just looking for something in your attic, you can’t beat the hands-free lighting convenience offered by a headlamp. – https://amzn.to/3a0xI4b
Having a good blade on hand is an essential part of camping and horses. You’ll need a quality knife for everything from making s’more sticks to cutting rope and making repairs to miscellaneous items around camp. – https://amzn.to/3nn67OB
First Aid Kit
The first step to prepare for a camping trip is packing a first aid kit with basic medical supplies. We keep on ein the house, barn, trailer, and truck. Get several they’re cheap! – https://amzn.to/2JSYKQ8
With winter here, it’s a great time for ground work to get ready for next year’s rides! I like a rope halter for groundwork and I like the Weaver Leather Diamond Braid – https://amzn.to/2KfqBtI
Unless you’re a fan of returning to camp after dark, navigation tools are an important part of trail riding. A good orienteering compass can help! This bright orange model is hard to lose! – https://amzn.to/3qPSAkm
We use them all the time and they get misplaced just as often. A simple hoof ( or several) stashed around the barn, trailer, and saddle bags will come in handy more than you imagine. – https://amzn.to/3a85SDf
Another item that we often overlook but use constantly. A rugged water bottle will keep you hydrated and happy through long days on the trail. This is the one we use. – https://amzn.to/3oIgMTZ
