What to Pack – Horse Riding Holidays

Packing can be a challenge when traveling, regardless of being a horse riding holiday or not. We have created packing lists to help you organize. Start with Riding equipment, then gadgets, accessories, hygiene, safety, and lastly clothing.

Packing Riding Equipment

You will want to pack your own boots as they will be of proper fit and broken in so no blisters. The helmet that you use at home will be fitted properly to your head and will be most comfortable. The tip from Krystal is to use your helmet bag as a purse/carry-on to pack your helmet and other items for the plane.

Packing Gadgets

Make sure that you know how to use the gadgets you are packing such as Gopro, camera, video… Also that you have the proper charging devices.

Packing Accessories

Using any bags such as leg straps, waist belts… as extra packing places will help minimize space for the trip and have two purposes packing and for riding.

Packing Hygiene

When it comes to items of hygiene look for smaller containers that can be refilled or thrown out after the use to lighten your packing. Shampoo bars are a great tool that can be used for hair and full body.

Packing for safety

If you require medication or have allergies please ensure that your trail guide is aware and where the items are located. Ensure that prescribed medication is in original container with proper dosage information listed.

Packing Clothing

When packing remember you have your favorite items that you always wear so when picking your outfits try to plan multi-use matching outfits. Packing items that dry fast will be crucial if you are riding in wet areas, or if it is extra hot and you need a refresh.
