Houston we have wheels!

I got a trailer! Well, I paid for one. It's not home yet, but it's all mine. Found a nice used Featherlite BP with a dressing room. Best part was it was just a few towns over, so I didn't have to drive 3 freakin' hours to go see it. I'll post pics when I finally get it home.

In the meantime, what trailer toys do I need to get? I'm thinking just to hold water, pitchfork and bucket, hay bags. First aid kit? What's your ride stocked with?

Congrats!! You'll have tons of fun with your own trailer - just load up and go whenever :)

-First aid kit (I throw a cooler with sedatives/banamine in there for longer rides)
-Extra halter/lead for each horse
-Chain shank
-Trailer aid, or whatever those things that help you change a flat w/o unloading horses are called
-Groom box
-Pitchfork/muck tub
-Basic tool kit

That's what's in our trailer all the time... during show season it tends to house a bit more tack. I'll leave extra stirrup leathers, girth, bridle, boots, saddle pads and a helmet in there. Just in case.

I'd recommend getting bucket holders! They attach to the side of your trailer and can hold a full bucket of water. I always feel bad leaving my horse tied to the trailer for a while when water is just out of reach. I got bucket holders on my trailer and it's really nice because they can drink whenever they are thirsty!

Good tip on the bucket holders. My horse drinks like a fish, but I'm sure he'd be happy to knock over the bucket if I just place it on the ground. I'll put that one on the list.
