You will need to provide:
Sufficient hay for the number of days
attending. (Hay is available here for $6.00 bale if required)
A 15.2 horse may eat up to half a bale per day, depending on the quality, his
condition, and the amount of hard feed that he is getting.
Hard feed. Oats, chaff or chop, barley, horse nuts etc. Keep the amount similar
to what you usually fed at home when he is working hard. (Make no sudden change
of diet.) Most horses will require some hard feed when they are working all
day. It would be reasonable to feed a 15.2 horse, four feeds per day, of
approx. one kilo of concentrate, and one kilo of bulk. If you feed this amount,
you can reduce the hay considerably.
Complete set of grooming gear, in a suitable container.
Tack cleaning gear. You can expect to clean your gear briefly, after every
A feed container, and a hay net.
You are welcome to leave your float or truck parked here. (it's the best place to store your feed)
Note: The cost of your course is the same
if you bring your own horse.
