Here are some tips to help you pack for a horse riding holiday. Your packing needs will depend on what sort of riding holiday you have booked, the time of year you are travelling, the country you are going to and also your own personal needs, but hopefully these tips will help you with the basics. The lists are by no means exhaustive… I haven’t even gone so far as to mention taking your passport and you might not get very far without that! If you are heading out on a Far and Ride holiday soon then you will receive a packing list from us which relates specifically to your chosen holiday, though you should feel free to contact us at anytime if you need some advice on what to take.
The following is based on my own personal experiences and following my good fortune to have ridden in almost 20 countries worldwide (with more to come!). There is nothing worse than finding yourself abroad on an adventure feeling unprepared, cold or uncomfortable so I recommend that you take some time to plan what you are taking with you. I like to write myself an elaborate list in the week before I go and then I don’t let myself leave the house until everything is ticked off!
