When you’re going out on the rodeo road, there are a few staple items you need in your trailer. From horse care to people care, these items are essential to keeping you and your horse at peak performance all year round.
It’s important to keep your horses feet picked out and clean, especially in muddy conditions. If sad or small rocks get lodged in the feet, it can cause the shoe to become loose or, worse, it can cause hoof wall separation.
Flies are everywhere! Keep a can of fly spray in your trailer to help keep the pesky critters away. Although they die down in the winter, fly spray can help keep your horse as comfortable as possible.
When going down the rodeo road, you’re hauling almost nonstop. Shipping boots can prove an important tool in your arsenal to keep your horses legs protected in the trailer.
Anything can happen, even if you do everything you’re supposed to. Keep a small tube of wound cream on hand for those little nicks and cuts that can happen in an instant. Also good for hock sores from lying on hard ground, or bite marks from the playful pony next door.
A towel is just an all-around great thing to have. It has millions of uses, including; wiping dirt off your horses legs prior to booting them up, cooling you off in hot weather, drying your horse after a bath or serving as a pillow in-between go’s.
One of the staple tack items, bell boots (overreach boots) protect your horse from over-stepping and injuring themselves. The area on the backside of the front legs is extremely sensitive, and a small abrasion can lead to a massive problem if not taken care of properly.
