my packing list.

We have several lists which we check off as we pack. We use to have
a small trailer that we could not fit everything into and had to pack
everyhting each ride but now we have a trailer with a tack area and a
big dressing room so we keep everything in the trailer ready to go and
just load the last minute stuff, which makes it alot easier.

here's the list of stuff just for ourselves:

case you get dumped in a river.
