Wow so I thought April 3rd was going to be my first time hauling but it actually came today! My BO called me up and said "Get over here we're going penning." I was like ok headed over they had the trailer hooked up....next thing I knew he handed me the keys I was like "What?!?" haha. He said I looked like a turtle driving to the team penning farm I was leaned forward over the steering whell white knucling it. He thought it was going to snap in half haha. I was so nervous but then hauling it home I was so much more relaxed and didn't white knuckle the steering wheel. The only thing I really didn't like was when people passed me, we went over bumps, or someone was riding the bumper (that was the worst!!) Oh and I successfully back it into it's parking area after we unloaded the horses. It took me 15 mins but I did it my first time ever backing the trailer up! Haha I hit a hughe milestone today and I'm so happy. My BO said I did a great job my first time out I never hit the breaks too hard, my turns were good, my parking could be better but I'm guessing that comes with practice, and I only hit one bad bump but I slowed down enough so the truck got the worst of it and the trailer barely hit it. My BO said "Good job girl, ya did great. You better get used to it cause you're hauling to all the shows from here on out." I was happy that he had that much faith in me but also freaked out that he had that much faith in me haha.
Haha sorry for rambling I'm just so excited it all went well and nothing bad happened!
