For the clinics I give, I recommend the following:
Required - helmet, proper foot wear for riding and ground work, correctly fitted tack, cotton lead line, cotton lunge line, lunge whip, dressage whip or riding crop
Suggested - a folding chair, blanket, extra clothing (dress in layers & bring extra socks - nothing worse than damp socks on a cold day), 'hot shots' for feet and hands, water (stay hydrated you'll be working hard), lunch, snacks and drinks (may be provided at the facility best to check with them), a notebook, pen and, if the clinician allows it a camera or video camera.
For people bringing their own horses I also recommend a blanket and cooler for the horse, leg bandages, boots or polos, a first aid kit, hay, grain and buckets. You may also have to buy bedding from the facility or bring your own.
Always check with the clinic host for what they provide and what you must bring with you.
Take lots of notes. But, most of all have fun.
