Take at least one extra feeding’s worth of hay and grain per horse. If you’re delayed getting home for some reason, you’ll still be able to keep your horses’ feeding on schedule. If your horse requires special supplements or medicine, make sure to pack extra of those items as well. Make sure all items are stored properly—if a medicine must stay cool pack it in your trailer’s fridge or in a well-insulated cooler.
