Mountain Horses

on the Road

I have compiled this list over the last 5 years, after packing and unpacking our horse trailer multiple times to prepare for horse shows or camping with our horses.  Until this year, I have added something to the list every time we pack.  This year, for the first time, I didn't have to add anything.  I hope you find it helpful.
