You want your trail rides to be safe and enjoyable for everyone involved. But it’s easy to forget the most basic items as we rush around, struggling to get on the road as soon as possible.

To ensure you have what you need to enjoy your experience to the fullest, here is our suggested packing list. The following gear and equipment should give you a good start.

    I would add a headlamp and hoof care tools such as rasp, nippers, hoof boot(s).

  • My list I’ve developed over 40 yrs of competitive trail riding also includes my horse! Many years ago, a lady showed up at a ride without her horse. She’d been so wrapped up in trying to remember everything she needed to pack and load in her trailer that she forgot her horse! How embarrassing. 🙂 Fortunately, she lived near the ride.
