1)There are a lot of web sites that have great recipes for homemade horse treats.
2) Make your own cross country jumps. For example, you can make a water jump using a blue tarp.
3)If your horse loses a shoe you can use a diaper and duck tape to cover it.
4)Old tooth brushes work great for cleaning tack, especially to scrub the bit.
5)Make your own horse shampoo: Phase A Weight %
For 236 g /8oz
Alkyl Sulfonate (cleansing agent) 70 %
165 ml / 1/2 cup 3 Tbsp
Polyglucose (cleansing agent) 22.5 %
53 ml / 3 1/2 Tbsp
Soy Quat (protein conditioner) 4%
9.4ml / 2 tsp
PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate (emulsifier, emollient) 2%
4.7 ml / 1 tsp
Fragrance 1.5 %
3.5 ml / 1/2 - 3/4 tsp
Provitamin B5 (vitamin, soothing agent) 0.5 %
1.2 ml / 28 drops
Aloe Vera Gel 10x concentrate (moisturizier) 1 %
2.4 ml / 1/2 tsp
Add phase A into the mixing vessel and stir gently. Add phase B one by one to phase A and stir again gently. Fill into 8oz shampoo bottle. The shampoo concentrate doesn't contain a preservative, if you intend to dilute the concentrate with water then we recommend to preserve it with 1.2 % phenoxyethanol/SA (2.8ml or 1/2 tsp).
Direction to use: shake well. Thoroughly wet animal's coat with water. Massage only small amounts of the shampoo into coat while adding water to get better dispersion. Continue until a generous lather is generated. Rinse well.
Easy to make, mild but rich cleansing shampoo concentrate. Contains very mild surfactants suitable for the sensitive skin. Contains also a soy-based protein conditioner and an effective emollient (peg-glyceryl cocoate) that moisturizes the pet's coat. Optionally, provitamin B5 may be added to soothe irritated skin or aloe vera to moisturize very dry skin
