The Ultimate Horse Show Packing Checklist!

So you are headed to a show! You will likely spend a bit of time packing for a horse show….and hoping that you don’t forget anything! I have compiled a handy list for you – broken down by category. Please feel free to download a copy (show_packing_checklist) and print for your use.

A little disclaimer here…. This list is comprehensive and used to pack for “overnight” (or longer) shows. For day shows, where you may just haul in and out, you will be able to edit down a lot of this stuff. I also might have put some stuff in multiple categories, because some of us like our widgets with other widgets, some of us want our widgets with our sprockets.

If you need to pick up any of these items, you can most likely find them in my affiliate store. This doesn’t cost you anything more, and because it affords me some commission, I can keep this website up! Thanks, guys!

 

So here we go!!
