Horse Packing Videos

  • Tying The Box Hitch When packing, remember that heavy items are always loaded first on the bottom of the pannier. The idea is to maintain a low center of gravity and thus avoid a top heavy load. Breakable items are put in bags or metal/plastic containers to avoid breakage within the panniers. Personal gear, clothing, and sleeping bags are better off packed in duffle bags then placed atop the panniers. Items such as bedrolls or oats are placed on top of the pack saddle between the panniers as well, then covered by the manta (or canvas tarp) to protect the entire pack. Equipment (axe, saw, shovel, etc.) are packed on top of the manta, but lashed onto a lash rope for easy obtainability. Sometimes, these items can also be carried in a rifle scabbard on your saddle horse instead.
