So now that show season is upon us, it is a good idea to start to organize your gear. If you create a checklist of stuff to bring, when it comes time to pack, it is easier to make sure you have everything you need. It is a good idea to pack as much gear as possible in containers with lids so you can keep it organized, and stack them in your trailer tack room. I scooped the above list from Lynda Smith's web site. Thanks Lynda!! If you have items to add, post them in the comments section!
Another convenient thing to bring along is a portable saddle stand.


  1. i have two of everything...a show bridle and saddle that stay in my trailer as well as leg boots and all my show cloths..even cowboy boots that are just for show....then i have a duplicate in my tack saves time and worry when you have to pack for a show..i'm always ready, just throw the horse in and for bridles i have at least 25 one for every bit...i detest change headstalls...and horses are not the same and they all like differant things......Dawnna

  2. What bank did you rob?? Sounds like a good strategy! Most trainers would agree with you!
