It is always better to be completely prepared prior to starting a camping trip. Most of the camping trips today require horses, not only for transportation but also for recreational purposes. While one can find good horses, the difficult part is to find the Horse packing supplies that run with them. Trekking or mountain climbing compulsorily demands horses for carrying the extra load of the passengers. While in earlier days when horses were used for expeditions, ropes and cloth pieces were used to tie and hold the supplies with them. The same practice continued for years. However, after commercialization of camping and trekking, the need for proper packing surfaced. And this is where the need for specialized horse packing facilities emerged.
Henceforth there was almost an avalanche of packing supplies in the market. The kit referred to as Horse packing supplies, contains many different units. The combination varies from vendor to vendor and also depends upon the customer’s requirement. Continue reading →

Most of us have dreamed of having a backyard tree house when we were younger. For the lucky ones who were able to experience how it’s like to have your own, you may remember the feeling of having your own sacred place that you can share with your friends.
However fun they are for our kids, tree houses have their own set of safety concerns. Here are some things that you have to consider before building a tree house for your children or allowing them to play at the tree house of a friend:
The height of the tree house. The floor of a tree house should not exceed 10 feet from the ground in order to avoid fatal injuries in case of a fall; otherwise, a safety fall net should be provided. Also, he higher the tree house is off the ground, the harder it is for your child to get away from it in case of emergency. Continue reading →

It’s safe to say that summer is finally here, and with the weather being so charming it’s high time to get out there and make the most of it. As the kids’ summer holidays are coming up it’s also a great time to start planning how they could spend it with an emphasis on getting them out more. Often if left to their own devices, the kids will focus on the easy entertainment such as video games or watching movies. While this is great fun, there’s a whole world to explore, so here are some ideas on how to get the kids outside more:
1. Nature Walk
A family walk in the woods isn’t as common as it used to be. This is a shame as there’s lots of fun to be had, so be sure to plan in at least one walk in the forest together. When you are outside be sure to make the walk more interesting by getting the kids involved in their surroundings. For instance, set a task like counting how many oak trees, ladybirds, small birds like sparrows or finches you see. If the kids are still young you could always simplify this and look out for yellow flowers such as buttercups instead and slowly introduce the kids to the official names of their surroundings. This will build their outdoor knowledge and make future nature walks more challenging. Continue reading →
Every once in a while life can just get a bit overwhelming. The daily stresses of cooking and cleaning can combine forces with your mundane job to make you long for an escape. Maybe you are the sort of person who feels most at peace while outdoors. Just a few minutes out on a deserted trail, atop a lonely mountain, or seated by a quiet pond can make all the difference in your mood. The daily stresses don’t seem so important or worrisome anymore. Yet, trains to remote places can be expensive and you may not always have time for a long journey and a hike. Perhaps the best solution for you is to turn your back garden into a private getaway.
Not everyone has a pond in their back garden, but with a little effort you could convert your garden shed into a delightful getaway space. A tidied up garden shed provides you with a number of options for the quiet you may need. Sometimes all you need is a change of scenery. Rather than sitting in your house you can sit out in your garden. A little fresh air and sunshine may be all you needed. Depending on the size of your shed you can shift about some items and make space for a small chair in a Continue reading →
