Off to a show: Packing list for a horse show

Let’s be honest for a second: we’ve all forgotten at least one thing in our show life careers. Some things are easy to replace once at the venue, others are missed badly. Here’s our packing list for a horse show for you and your horses, so you won’t ever forget anything again!

Do in advance:

  • apply for your annual tournament license
  • register/continue your horse
  • register for the show
  • check timetable
  • plan arrival
  • write down important contact details of the show office

Travel essentials:

  • driving license
  • vehicle registration documents (for the car, truck and/or horse trailer)
  • horse passport
  • spare halter/rope
  • horse rug (depending on weather: cooler, fly blanket or winter blanket)
  • proof of attendance (due to Corona)
  • navigation details
  • phone and charger
  • first aid kit (for horses and human)
