A friend and I are conditioning our horses for a Limited Distance ride of 25 miles in February. I know both our horses could complete this right now with no problem...we are also conditioning our backsides!!
As for the trailer, that depends on how far away the ride is from your home base. We are hauling 95 miles to our ride. We are spending the night so we have to have everything for ourselves and the horses for a 2 day trip...feed, hay, electrolytes, water, tack, snacks, emergency care for the horses, chairs, awning, etc.
As far as what we will carry on the ride - snacks for us and the horses (Biscuit loves a treat!) water, Burt's Bees lip balm, camera, vet wrap, something to repair tack with, a little knife, hoof pick, hoof boots, helmet, heart monitor and I am sure something else!!
Can't wait to hear about your adventure! Be sure to pack confidence and have fun!
