WANTED: Trailering for one horse from Gibbons to Edmonton

Hey all. I'm in the process of looking at and purchasing a horse. I have a barn lined up, but no way to get the horse from it's current place of residence to the barn. I haven't purchased the horse yet, but I want to ensure a ride for the mare before I agree to buy.

The horse is currently located in Gibbons, Alberta. The barn where I need her to be is just outside of South Edmonton, close to Millwoods. Gibbons from Edmonton is a 35 minute drive, approximately.

Is there anyone with a trailer that might be able to do that? I don't have any dates in mind yet and am more than willing to work with your schedule. Please message me with approximate costs or, if you're willing, a form of trade. I'm a website and graphic freelance designer and I could definitely help you out in that area.

Thank you for reading; I appreciate the thoughts!

I moved your thread to this forum, I think it will get more exposure. Good luck with your purchase!

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

The barn you are moving her to won't do it? When we first got our horses, the first two barns we were at moved the horses for us since we didn't have a trailer. One did charge a fee for doing it. I would think that they would, if they could, for you business.

Also, have you check your area for rental horse trailers? The only problem with those is that many times, they are used for a sick or diseased horse going to the vet to be put down. You could bleach the inside down to be on the safe side.

Everyone should be allowed at least one bad habit, and that's NOT owning a horse!

Mares RULE! Geldings drool!

Have you posted an ad on Kijiji? You will probably get more replies there than on here... :)
