AN­NUAL PURGE

EQUUS - - Eq Hands On -

I use the end of sum­mer as an oc­ca­sion to or­ga­nize and purge my tack and sup­plies. I clean and in­spect every­thing. If I haven’t used an item in more than a year, and it’s still in good re­pair, I might do­nate it to a lo­cal res­cue or­ga­ni­za­tion or take it to the com­mu­nity tack swap. It’s also a time to en­sure that my horse’s winter gear is still in good shape and fits him.— Kelly Wil­son, Yakima, Wash­ing­ton
