So I'm planning on doing lots of trail riding when I move to my house in the country, mostly in the area around my house (it backs up to 1,000 acres of BLM land) and I'm trying to come up with a list for things to pack in my saddle bags. I'm only going to be doing day trips for the first year or so, or until I have a more experienced friend to ride with.
Ok so here's what I have so far:
- Spare tack (spare set of reins, not a whole saddle)
- First aid kit
- Water bottle
- Bug repellent
- Long sleeved shirt/jacket
- Small multi-tool or Swiss Army Pocket Knife
- Twine or thin rope
- Lead rope and halter
- Vet wrap
- Hoof boot
- Water proof matches
This is what I have so far, and any suggestions would be great!! PLEASE remember that I'm new and if I'm posting in the wrong area or anything, treat me nicely. I have been part of some other forums that aren't very nice to some of the newbies that are still getting used to the forum.
