My principal needed a ride one day, so I offered. she was amazed to find a trooper saddle (there most of the time), a pad, a pair of spurs over the floor shifter for the 6sp, an assoertment of GPS collars, and training collars for the bird dogs, a box of syringes and la200 for the cows, a duster and hat, and an assortment of check cords and lead ropes for dogs and horses.

There is always at least on bridle and rein set in the cab, rubber buckets and 5gal water carriers in the bed, and odds and ends lengths of bailing twine, the door pockets house fencing pliers, and a claw hammer.....

All of this piled strategically in the back seat so I can still safely put my daughter in her car seat.

Ahhhh, the joys of livestock ownership.

On the other hand my Jetta is rather clean.

I drive a 2 door sports car so space is super limited. I have a human first aid kit, sunglasses, a bottle of water, some spare change, hair band and hair pins, a random pocket knife in my glove box, a lighter, a jacket and blanket, and random cds. LOL

Jumper cables. I can't even tell you how many times I had to get my pos lemon car jumped (before sayings crew it and buying my new truck) and now I carry them for my car and anybody else that needs them.
A tool kit for changing tires. (Mine and others)
An extra jack
A halter (I'm on call 24/7 for emergencies at the ranch)
Vet wrap
Baling wire (for my back bumper when i got rear ended and it was hanging off)
And I usually have a couple bottles of Gatorade

I have even more random crap in my REAL truck back home lol

*Insert something witty*

In my car (which is a crap mobile) I have 2 jumper cables, a tool kit with everything I could need in a pinch, wire, baling twine (yes to fix my car lol), para-cord and more baling twine so I can throw a halter together in a pinch (and other stuff), boots, towels (my windows don't roll up and are always down so...), and a horse blanket because I don't have heat and my windows are down. When my mare doesn't need her blanket guess who's wearing it! I also have a makeshift vet kit because I got tired of finding an animal or having one left in my car with no supplies in case it was injured and having to go to the local bar to get supplies/phone when you're under 21 (thank god the bar tenders knew I wasn't an underage kid trying to get a drink!).

A bag of feed in the truck. Hopefully it won't attract a thief. Nothing fancy installed in the dash either.

Haha, y'all are much more appropriately prepared than myself!

Let's see... Well, my horse is currently in Texas, so it's much cleaner than it usually is! The common denominators in my car are fast food cups (I get Hi-C after long nights of partying... and those are typical), my gym bag (which includes a towel, bathing suit, shampoo, conditioner, running shoes, shorts, tanks, hair ties, etcetera), and of course my serving apron/book.

In the trunk I still keep a grooming kit, my horse's lightweight blanket, and empty bottles of his meds. I miss him so much ;-;

I don't keep a lot of stuff in my car. I always have my riding boots, half chaps, spurs, and a camera. In the summer I have a water bottle, and in the winter I have toe warmers. I also have a partial bale of alfalfa in the bed of my truck because I have nowhere better to store it There's almost always something in there that's being transported to/from the barn from home- saddle pads, feed, etc.

Most of my stuff is in my tool box in my truck bed. A small tool set,2 sets of jumper cables, ratchet straps(6 or so) , fishing pole and vest that stays in there all the time. Ya, just never know when the urge to fish will hit. a blanket( wool army) incase of a break down in cold weather. A couple flashlights with extra batteries, about 200' of 550 parachord, fire extinguisher, a couple cheap knives along with what I allways carry on my belt. Rain gear and a box of shotgun shells. Those probably got left in there from a hunting trip and just ended up staying. Oh, and a small first aid kit. I probably should upgrade that though.

In my cab with me. A map book of NC and a US map book. I don't have a garmin i choose to navigate the old fashioned way. Extra diapers, and wipes in a zip lock baggie. with two little girls those have come in handy on several occasions and can be used in a laceration, trauma type situation.The wipes in other dire situations. An extra jacket in the winter time and a fire starting kit. Including a lighter, matches a farro rod and some char cloth. Oh and probably another knife somewhere in there.

Most of anything I would need for the horses stays in the trailer and that list is long.

I'm proud to say my truck is clean....for me haha

currently, there are two saddle pads, two wool dress sheets (currently acting as a mud catcher/dog bed for the dog...), at least one halter, two lead ropes, a pair of paddock boots, boot trees, two hoof picks, a few bucket hooks, a collection of random stuff from the saddlery the other day, some water bottles, jumper cables and a tire changing kit. I think that's all...

I have just replaced my car with a Landrover Discovery so it is currently uncluttered...but my old car had quite a lot of damp hay (some of it starting to grow), sticky sweet wrappers and random bits of coloured plastic (old toys), occasional books, receipts, a hoof file, fence mending things and a couple of pairs of wellies and a box of chalk ( I have 3 children)
