Don’t leave home without considering your horse’s water needs. Here’s what to plan for, plus hauling, watering, and use tips.
Let your horse drink from water sources along the trail or near the camp to conserve the water you’ve hauled in.  Your trail horse needs about 10 to 30 gallons of water per day to stay hydrated and healthy. You’re responsible for meeting his critical water needs, whether you go on day rides, horse camp, or pack into the back country. Never assume water will be provided at the trailhead/staging area, and don’t expect to find full water troughs in campgrounds.

Here, we’ll tell you how to meet your trail horse’s water needs.

Plan Ahead: Use these planning trips when you haul your horse from his trusted water source.
