    I am a worry wart so here's my short list: emergency car kit in case I have a low tire; a 30 foot cotton lead/lung rope; a spare halter and lead rope; coggins; flashlight in case I end up arriving or needing to check tires in the dark. I'm a little paranoid about tires. My GPS plus a real map in case there are detours.

    Before I hauled the first time I practiced backing and parking; and before I hauled the horse the first time we went for a short trip just off property and back again so that his first ride wasn't a long one.

    I use shipping boots for the horses that walk on themselves, but not for the others. I also tie when I'm hauling 2 but never with a rope halter - always a reinforced nylon halter.

    If its a horse trailer (not an open stock) I would put some shavings down to help absorb pee on the journey.

    See if you can fill up with water from the place you are getting your horse, as that is the water they are used to and might be more willing to drink it, then water you have brought from your place.
