Dollar Store Finds: For the road/show prep
Trim your horse-keeping expenses by buying some of your incidentals at your local dollar store.
It may take a little digging but you can find many non-horse-specific barn incidentals at your local dollar store—or other discounters—that can do the job and save you a significant amount of money in the long run. So here’s our list—start with these items and then see what else you can find!
· A travel sewing kit to replace buttons or make last-minute mends on show apparel.
· 40 baby wipes in a pop-up container for both horse and handler touchups.
· Two bunches of artificial flowers, similar to what our horses might see on jumps or a trail obstacle at a show. By introducing them at home first, we’ll be less likely to have problems.
