Whether you’re an experienced rider, who has their own horses or a newbie who has to pack up all their equipment each time they go to lessons, an equestrian bag is a must! A lot of essentials are required to make it through a show or a day on the trail.
Here are a few must-haves for your equestrian bag to ensure you and your horse are set up for success!
Helmet and Hair Accessories
A helmet is an essential part of horse riding and a definite must-have! Horseback riding is a dangerous sport, and head trauma is a high risk. You need a helmet specifically designed for horse riding as it has the safety technology required. Additionally, you need to ensure your helmet is fitted properly.
It’s also nice to have a couple of hairnets and hair ties around. It is easy to rip hair nets and lose hair elastic bands, and you never know if your friend or riding buddy might need some.
Breeches are athletically inspired pants designed for horseback riding. They’re made with thin fabric that’s stretchy to allow freedom of movement and without an inside seam to prevent chafing. These pants fit snugly and have special gripping fabric designed for safety and communication with the horse.
Horse Medical Records
Some people choose to keep their horse’s medical records in a safe place at home but keeping a folder with extra copies of your horse’s Coggins, rabies, etc., in your bag is helpful when you are trailering somewhere as you won’t even have to worry about packing them.
A well-stocked first-aid kit is essential for any horse owner. When your horse is injured, the last thing you want to do is waste time rummaging through drawers or closets to find what you need. You may still need to contact your vet, but at least you can stabilize your horse while you wait.
Grooming is a great way to keep your horse healthy. It helps the coat shine, boosts circulation, and provides you with an early warning system to alert you to any health issues that could require medical care. Grooming is also a good way to bond with your animal. Keep the grooming supplies necessary for your horse in your bag for easy access.
Planning out what to keep in your equestrian bag can feel overwhelming at first. A good place to start is the essential items you know you will need to use every time you are out with your horse, and continue to add in products as you go.
