Pleasure ride equipment check list

This is a list kindly put together by Cheshire group Egb !! Don't we all love list :-) , it's a great way to make sure you have all you need before you set off to do an organised pleasure ride.
   

Don’t Forget

Map in map case

 

Travel rug / boots / tail bandage or guard etc

 

Poop scoop to clear anything you wouldn’t want to leave at the venue

 

A haynet plus a small feed for after the ride tends to be appreciated by most

 

Tack….We have all heard stories of a forgotten saddle, bridle or girth!

 

Riding gear…Think about yourself. Have you got your boots/chaps, riding hat, gloves and whip if you carry one? Do you have pockets for your phone or should you take a bum bag. A flask with a warm drink or a drinks holder with a cold drink count as essential items plus any food you wish to take with you.

 

Enough water for your horse to drink and to use to cool your horse after the ride.

 

Grooming kit – especially a hoof pick

 

Water buckets

 

Wash off kit…sponges, brushes etc

 

Scraper / towel

 

Sweat rug / fleece rug

 

Bag for dirty numnah / boots etc after ride

 

Rider First aid kit. There will always be a first aider at the venue if you need help

 

Horse first aid kit …This is a personal thing but we recommend electrolytes, leg cool gel, vet wrap, gamgee, purple spray, hibscrub and clean sponges.
