Here you can find out which requirements you and your horse should fulfil, how to calculate a daily distance and what else you should bear in mind when organising your tour.

3. The kit checklist – what do I take with me on a horse trek?

One thing we have to say in advance: unfortunately, there is no such thing as the ultimate kit checklist for horse trekking. The diversity of trekking simply does not allow you to act according to a pattern. What you need to take with you depends, among other things, on how long you are going to be on the road and what the food and accommodation options are like along the way. With our kit checklist, we give you some initial pointers on what to pack in the saddlebags of experienced trekkers.
