Going on a camping trail ride-need help

There will be a campground. We are going out for the day on Saturday coming back to campground and going back out Sunday. So I will not be taking a sleeping pack or anything like that. However... what will I need to take with me to make sure I am fully prepared?? I am meaning both while on the ride and at campsite. I have a saddle back and a small bottle to put fly spray in for the ride itself. What else should I take?

Lots of water! Snacks, fly spray, hoof pick. Telephone. Hay for the horses.

Are you camping in a tent or trailer? Will you have a bed or need a sleeping bag? Without more info it's kind of hard to help you much.

How I'm sleeping doesn't really matter... I know what to take for ME as far as camping goes. Been doing that since I can remember. Lol. But I've never been with a horse.

Extra halter and lead
And not sure what water your using, but if you add apple cider vinager at home then when giving different water add the vinager to it and there shouldn't be any issues with the new water.

Are you picketing your horse?

I'm not exactly sure what picketing means but we are putting up a temporary fence using tposts and hot tape.

A temp fence will work. Is there access to water for the horses? Bring hay/grain, med kit for your horse and you, brush, hoof pick, water bucket, obviously a halter and lead rope/s, grain pan if you feed grain, knife(Leatherman's are nice but any will do.) Do you have saddle bags, cantle bag or pommels available? You don't need them all. I now carry a compass on trail, you can't always count on cell phones. Dress according to the weather, maybe a snack on trail would be an option. It sounds a tad much but after you camp time and again, it becomes second nature as to what you need. Don't forget to enjoy the experience.

I didn't think about compass since its a guided trail ride of over 100 people but that's a really good idea. I was going to take water bucket and buy one of those big jugs of water (bigger than a gallon) because I don't know what sort of water options we will have. I do have a saddle bag. I need to remember to get the med kit out of my trunk at the barn!
Great advice thank you!!!

It is still good for you to know where you are at, not relying on others. You just never know sometimes. Oh, a nightcap around a campfire is nice!
