Required Equipment for Rally: Tack Room Equipment
Share |

Requirements:

  • One kit per team
  • Labeling: Everything should be labeled with team initials or identified as belonging to an individual on the team.

Flashlight: Should be hung by door of tackroom or in a convenient place. The expectation is that flashlights should be accessible: low enough for the shortest member of the team to grab without needing a stool; visible; and able to be removed without untangling or unbinding.

  • Should be: working with a strong, bright light
  •  Suggestion: Hang with a double ended snap so that it is easily removed for use.
  • Shouldn't be: pen-type or miniature flashlights
  • Good tip: include a set of spare batteries in the Utility Kit, marked with the month and year purchased.

Fire Extinguisher: Type "A" or "ABC". "A" means capability of extinguishing cellulose/wood fires, "B" means capability of extinguishing gasoline, grease or oil fires and "C" means capability of extinguishing electrical fires. Make sure the little arrow is on green.

  • Should be: portable and hung by door of tackroom or in a convenient place. 
  •  Suggestion: Hang with a double ended snap so that it is easily removed for use.
  • Good tip: Many local fire departments run classes in how to use a fire extinguisher. This makes a great unmounted meeting.

Notice Board: can be a dry erase board, chalk board, cork board, etc.


Trash Container:

  • Should be: at least 3 gallon size. Should have a lid to keep flies and other insects to a minimum.
  • Good tip: a large trash container can double as a storage/transport container for other team kits.

Horse Management Handbook: Check the USPC web site under the "Publications" tab for the most current version of the Horse Management Handbook, plus that years annual newsletter. You only need Part 1: HM Rules for USPC Rallies.

  • Should be: In logical and sequential page order. Make sure you have included any addenda. (Marked in the footer of pages on which changes have been made.)

Discipline Rulebook Check the USPC web site under the "Publications" tab for the most current discipline Rulebook, plus that years annual newsletter.

  • Should be: In logical and sequential page order. Make sure you have included any addenda. (Marked in the footer of pages on which changes have been made.)

Boot Hooks: used to help pull on your boots. Only needed if one or more team members are wearing tall boots.

  • Good tip: Boot hooks are inexpensive and it's a good idea to get a pair and keep them in your team trunks, you never know somebody might need them.



Boot Jack: boot jacks are very helpful in getting boots off, especially on hot sweaty days. Only needed if one or more team members are wearing tall boots.

  • Good tip: inexpensive and great to have on hand.
