Selecting the correct tent when packing in with horses depends on several factors.
- When moving camp often, Pyramid Tents are often used as they are easy to take down and set up due its one pole set up system.
- Stationary camp. I prefer a wall tent as it is normally larger, provides more head room and more usable space due to its 5' side walls.
- Spike tents are another alternative if you move frequently. .The spike tent has few frame poles and weighs less than a comparable size wall tent. It is much more comfortable to be in than a pyramid tent as my spike tents have 4' walls and a 3 pole roof support system that provides good head room.
