Horse Trailer Packing Checklist

The Ultimate Checklist for Packing a Horse Trailer

There is so much to remember when packing for a trip for myself, my kids, AND my husband (who, without my help, would bring 2 sets of clothes and a toothbrush no matter how long the trip).

Add in one horse or more to the mix….WHEW!!

That is a quick ticket to frazzle-ville, am I right?

It can be an added source of stress every time you find yourself standing in front of your trailer tack room racking your brain for everything you could possibly need for you and your horses.

But it doesn’t have to be!

I used to feel like this too until I literally just sat down with a list of things I needed to pack ahead of time and checked each item off as I confirmed it’s residence was safe and sound in the trailer.

This made packing WAY faster, smoother, and more thorough. You can download and print out this snazzy checklist for yourself and print multiple copies, laminate one copy, or keep in a clear binder sheet protector for multiple uses.
