Question Moving Barns

Hey,
I'm planning on moving barns and I was just wondering if I end up moving, should I clean the following items and if so how should I clean them? I have been using them on the school horses.
-grooming box (dandy,finishing,curry,hoof pick with brush, mane comb)
-saddle pad
-halter (might not use this)
-boots
-half chaps
Thank you in advance!

I would clean everything. When I started riding my horse I cleaned everything with dawn dish soap and hot hot water then rinsed soaked again, rinsed and finally sprayed with Lysol. When I'm riding my horse I only use his stuff, if I'm having a lesson on different horse I use different cinch, saddle pad, bridle, brushes and boots.

My trainers is a show barn so horses are coming in and out, this is one way to keep any contagions from affecting the whole barn or the bording barn where my horse is at.

How I Clean My Saddle Pad:
-First use a brush to get off as much horse hair and dirt as possible.
-Apply a pre-wash stain remover to any big stains
-Throw in washer with soap and a towel. (the towel just helps it move around, so if you have other barn laundry you could use that)
-Lay out in the sun to dry. (sunlight helps remove stains)
-Enjoy the freshly washed smell...it won't last long ;)

You should clean stuff routinely, not just when you move, and honestly-I have never cleaned stuff because I was moving, unless (and I have never had this happen) the barn is contaminated/quarantined. Your horses stuff is your horses stuff regardless of the barn they are at. Since you have been using stuff on school horses-yes-clean it. In the future-use the school horse designated stuff on them, and your own stuff on your horse.

I don't think the OP has a personal horse therefore uses stuff on school horses. I use my personal stuff on my lesson horse if weather is too bad to trailer mine to the trainers but it's different then stuff I use on Lionel and is even a different colour and bags.

OP If your using your stuff on a different horse then it needs to be cleaned. It's like going to a hair dresser, you wouldn't want the same dirty brush used on you that was used on someone else without it being disinfected.

No I do not have my own horse, and don't worry I do regularly clean my brushes I was just wondering if there was anything different to do when going to a new barn.
Thanks for the help!
