HANDS on Tip
A suitcase that is no longer travelworthy may be perfect for storing “clothing” for your horse, such as blankets, sheets and wraps. Each horse in your barn can have his own suitcase, and you can dedicate different suitcases to different seasonal gear. You can also fill one with items that you’ll need on the road and store it in the trailer.— Susan Lang, Wichita, Kansas
