I think the ideal thing would be for those that don't use them on a regular basis to talk to a local barn owner, or some friends and either purchase one together, or rent from a friend, ect....

I don't use my trailer often..would never think of selling it though. Darn thing comes in handy when we have to haul something ( not always horses:). And in the event of an emergency.. I would hate to be stuck without it.

As for lending, I have lent mine out, only to close friends-but dang it, everytime it comes back it has a new ding...I prefer my horses to be the ding doers on my I prefer to not lend it anymore.

I have a friend who recently received a super nice 4-horse gooseneck with living quarters (the darned thing even has an awning!) as a gift from her parents, along with a brand new Dodge dually to pull it (her parents are loaded). That meant her little aluminum two-horse bumper pull either needed to be sold or put into storage. Lucky for me, she decided to put it into storage. When I needed to move Aires at the beginning of the month, I took a shot in the dark and asked if I could borrow the two-horse. To my surprise, she said sure...and then when I returned it, she said I could borrow it any time I wanted. This is great for me because now I have a trailer to use while I save up for one of my own.

I haven't been able to find a place to rent locally but do have a friend who lets me borrow his. We're close friends but I hate having to ask though I always take good care of it and return it in as good or better condition than when I took it. The hard part too is its stored in a wet spot so getting it out in less than ideal weather is not really an option. I can't wait to have my own as I'm really into trail riding and don't mind to keep up the maintenance and protect against weather as much as possible.

While I don't use mine often I won't be without one either. I can use trainers in a pinch, and have, since mine is being totally redone.

But not having a trailer when you have horses is a nightmare. We live in area where the nearest good equine vet is 50 miles one way. That is 100 dollar farm call at current rates. And the other vets are even further. And trying to find a trailer to borrow is a nightmare. And there are no places that rent them that I have found and that is even in the 3 big cities within 90 minutes one way.

Which means, even if I could find one in those cities? I would be out the drive to pick it up, then have to come back and load horses, and then afterwards drive back down there...nope.

I too rarely lend my things, and definitely won't when my "new" trailer comes home. I do plan on getting carport to put it under to protect it.
