Sounds like a lot of fun! I'd be careful about the treats. Many stables do not like their horses to be hand fed or be allowed treats. I would ask about that before bringing them. I would bring some snacks for yourself though.

Based on what they suggest you bring, it seems that they want you to outfit yourself and there is no mention of the horses they supply. There is probably a good reason they do not mention it.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.
