True story – a few years back, I drove about 2 hours to meet friends for an all-day trail ride.  One friend, a very experienced rider, forgot to load her horse’s saddle pad!  You forgot what?  

Thankfully, I had an extra one in my trailer. Crisis avoided!  

Thankfully, my friend was also an experienced traveler because I forgot to pack water and snacks.  My friend had packed enough for a small army! Share and share alike!
