Pack Your Sad­dle

Trail Rider - - TRIP TIPS -

Sad­dling your horse be­fore your trip might seem like a great way to save time and stor­age space. How­ever, this prac­tice can lead to safety and be­hav­ioral con­cerns. Stir­rups can get caught on your trailer’s stall di­viders. Plus, if your horse were to lose his bal­ance or slip dur­ing the ride, the sad­dle could come loose or the horn could push into his back, caus­ing pain­ful mus­cle sores.

And your com­fort­able, sad­dle-free horse will be more likely to re­main a will­ing loader and will be fresher for your ride.

On ev­ery trip, sad­dle up your horse when you ar­rive at your des­ti­na­tion.

Load your horse in your trailer with­out a sad­dle for his safety and com­fort.
