Hey! I'm going to HITS for three weeks this winter and I was wondering if anybody could help me with a packing list? I always seem to forget to pack all sorts of important stuff. Do most people wear jeans/ t-shirts or breeches/polos? should I bring my horse a blanket or a sheet? If anyone wanted to give me some insight for what to expect I would more than appreciate it!
Bring all of your horse clothes one day you will need a heavy blanket the next they can go naked.
I only wear breeches even with half chaps but there will be plenty who school in jeans and chaps. You will see a wide variety of attire.
Ocala can be cold and sunny, cold and rainy, warm and sunny, warm and rainy. And then switch the next day :) Pack rain stuff for you and your horse, things that can get muddy, and warm stuff.
Between January and March could see lows in the low 30's or high 20's a few times, and you could see a high near 80. You pretty much have to pack an entire wardrobe for you and your horse
