    What do I need?

    Hey guys my dad and I just recently got a new trailer, and want to start taking our horses around on weekend trips and what not. The only thing is we are both new to the whole trailering thing and don't really know what to take with us. I know we will need the basics such as brushes, halters, leads, feed, hay, buckets, saddles/pads etc. What are somethings you take that you feel you need while on a weekend trip.

    Thanks guys!

    I'd invest in a water tank, never know if they're will be a hose close to where you park and hydrated horses are always good! Also, possibly a battery to run your lights off of so you don't always have to turn the truck on to use them. It's nice to have a poop fork on hand to clean out the trailer or pick up waste if you park in a recreational area.

    Flash lights of some sort. And some padlocks (if your trailer doesn't lock). I also keep temporary posts in my trailer, as well as a roll of hot line. A battery pack fencer is nice, though I don't have one yet.

    ROPE it will tie a horse, fix tack, all sorts of stuff!

    Trailer insurance! You don't want to get stuck with a loaded trailer on the side of the road!

    For a water tank, I use a giant cooler to hold water. I can then either full up a bucket with the drain hole or just open it and let him drink. I got one in wheels. Doubles as a chair!

    Don't forget things like fly spray, snacks, hay, folding chairs, sunblock, etc.
