    During my years in PC (1980s and 90s) we had multiple one-day rallies where our ponies were tied to fences or trailers for the entire duration. We were always taught that we must teach our horses to...

    Agree on all counts! I'd rather have a horse panic and get loose from the trailer tie than panic inside the trailer and try and kill themselves (seen it happen many, many times at shows).

    Funny. I live in an area of Colorado that gets a lot of snow, and most people in our neighborhood use ATVs to plow. It was also the standard method of clearing the bike paths in Denver.

    For a two-horse BP I agree that a straight load is probably what you want, especially for larger horses. But the nice thing about a slant is that it's much easier to make it one big open box stall if...

    The photo you shared in your first post is definitely not cheatgrass, which also is not a variety of brome.

    The reason I won't pull a gooseneck horse trailer without a dually is in case of a rear-tire blowout. Without dual wheels you are likely to flip the rig if a back tire goes. Not a risk I'm willing to...

    That's the going rate around here, at least for hay guys like mine who don't do their own delivery and contract it out instead. My mom in Virginia pays only an additional 50 cents per bale!

    This is going to be highly variable depending on where you live.

    I just had 200 bales delivered and stacked yesterday; it cost me $450.

    Definitely call your extension service agent before doing anything. Also get your soil tested so that you know what to fertilize with.

    Yes; I have hauled to shows with friends before and that door is awesome to have for stowing stuff in during the day; otherwise there is no access to the inside of the trailer from that side.

    Thank you! That is reassuring. Do you have an escape door on yours? Today I had one friend tell me I didn't need one and another tell me she just used hers in an emergency and it was a lifesaver.

    Help me decide on a trailer!

    I'm in the market for a new (to me) trailer. Ideally a 3-horse slant GN with a ramp, although ramps are practically unheard of out here!
