OK, so I left you in suspense on the last post about the surprise hubby had for me when I got home from camp cattle clinic. Yes, it is a new horse trailer, well actually it is not new.....just new for me. It is actually a year or two older than my other one, just bigger and has a few more things I was looking for. I am pretty picky about my trailer and am not your typical glitter and glam girl. In fact the thought of me taking a brand spanky new fancy trailer to some of the places I go makes me cringe...... Nope, I am a simple modified stock kinda girl, steel is fine I have the truck to pull it. Nothing fancy just safe and get me there kinda thing.
Here is Harley's old ride,
A 1992 ponderosa modified stock with a 2' dressing room that is nicely finished in cedar and it has a small air conditioner that I added under the nose. Nothing wrong with this ride, just wanted A)a place for my tack besides the dressing room and
B) more room inside the dressing room so my family can travel with me to shows
This was not possible in this trailer as four in the bed makes for no sleeping and I am just to old for Tenting it anymore.
Enter the new ride:
Besides the fact that it is really BLUE! something I am getting used to, I really am going to like it. I say going to because I am having to do some major renovations inside the dressing room. It has really ugly paneling in there.....see
I have also ripped out the carpet and hubby and I are installing a hard wood floor.
With the extra room, (it has a five foot short wall) we are designing bunk beds for the wee ones to sleep in. This should be a fun project......
But best of all the person who owned it before me installed this...
Yes, an awning. How nice, for years I have been dragging one of those instant up shade things around, needing two people to set it up and all that nonsense. I am also happy that I now have this..
It is a little tack area that someone modified in the back box of the trailer using the escape door as an entrance. It cuts down on the size in the horse area but I usually only haul one most days and there is still room for two back there which is plenty. Besides Harley is so small he fits anywhere. This trailer also has the small slide gate within the rear swing door for easy access to the horses. All in all just what I was looking for. Yea!!
Now, I need to sell the other one so I can finish my modifications to this one.
Anyone interested email me privately and I have a flyer made up. email@example.com
This weekend I am judging a Pony of Americas trail class at a show in Northern Indiana!
Have a great weekend!
