This scenario is a little far out for us right now, but my husband brought it up (I mean camping with the horses) so I thought I'd ask.
Are there places you can camp overnight with horses that have corrals or paddocks already set up that you can rent? Is this a thing? I feel like if I went camping with my horses and didn't have them really secure, I wouldn't be able to sleep. I know that people hobble, or high line, or use portable electric panels, but I see problems with all of these and I can't imagine myself ever being comfortable using one.
I've camped since in my teens (i.e. in the early 70's) and so long as your horse is trained there is no need to worry about having corals, etc... Those sort of requirements will severely limit your camping options. I've camped using a hobble and secured line without problems, but you do need to train the horse (which is obscenely easy to do). In fact, by this point, even with my current horses, I can take them out and if there is a place where some trees are positioned properly I can even stretch a line of rope around the trees, about chest high for the horse, and they'll stay inside all night. The only potential item I have to keep in mind is finding a place with a water source nearby and getting permission to camp on someone's land (but so far that has not really been a problem over the decades). People tend to be very friendly about it (no doubt because of the horse LOL) and I've even had people bring me something to eat or come out to have a beer with me after I set up camp. But then I don't haul my horses some place to camp. I ride out of my driveway, turn left or right on the highway, and ride. Generally 20-25 miles a day depending on our speed and how much daylight I have.
I have lightweight gear. Horse transports everything. If you look close in the photo with her water bucket you can see where there's a rope along the ground that is attached to her hobble. There's also a couple of photos showing the hobble and line. I'll even attach one showing her eating breakfast inside the sort of rope corral I made at that location (she did have her hobbles on during the night, but I'd already removed them so I could get packed while she ate). Also an older photo of me on my way home from camping trip that someone took and sent me.
Camping can be as easy as you're willing to make it. Clearly, if you train your horses it requires very little and it only takes about a day or two for me when I train them to hobble and be picketed.. I find keeping everything lightweight to limit the weight to 20% is the toughest part of it all for me.
