I can't speak for its historical accuracy, but if I were to regularly find myself wandering the desert on horseback without my own water supply, one thing I'd definitely do is train my horse not to drink until I tell it to. Nobody wants to be the guy who gets to the water trough after Trigger and all his friends are finished.
