Tack Box Must-Haves
Whether you’re going away for a day, the weekend, or an extended show tour, packing for you alone is tough enough. When you also have to remember to pack and organize what seems like a million items for your horse, it can become truly overwhelming, and the odds of forgetting something that you or your horse needs are high.
So, the next time you’re organizing your tack box for a competition or show, take a look at the following list of essential items to make sure you have everything that you really need when you need it most.
4 Categories of Must-Haves for Your Tack Box Checklist
1. Tack and Equipment
If you forget an essential piece of tack, you can probably purchase what you need at a pop-up tack shop on-site, but do you really want to spend the money when you already have what you need at home? Of course not! So, remember these essentials:
2. Grooming Supplies
To help your horse look his or her best, be sure you have all your grooming supplies tucked away in your tack box, too.
3. Horse Care Supplies
Pack all the essential care items and a first aid kit to keep your horse happy and healthy away from home.
4. Rider Essentials
Remember you need to be show-ready, as well.
