    Thinking about downsizing...

    So last year I bought a 4 horse slant with an ac in high hopes that my children and husband would ride with me. Ha. Anyway now we are just down to 2 horses (the pony is sold as of today) and I am the only one that rides for now. I have a friend and we are going to go and do some trails when it gets cooler and we may do some camping (the boys camp and do whatever and I ride) but I am just not sure if we need such a big trailer anymore. I have thought about moving down to a 3 horse, but not sure if it would make a big difference. I am still holding out for my 5 year old to ride. We just don't have anything for him safe to ride. So there could be potential to need to haul 3 horses at some point but most likely it will be 2. I don't want a bpbut I feel silly with this huge trailer I rarely use. WWYD?

    Personally I would keep the bigger trailer. Id rather have and not need... than need and not have. Plus... if you already own the trailer. I mean if you downsize to a 2 horse then decide to go bigger again... Youd have to buy another big trailer. Then youd wish you hadnt sold your 4 horses. So I personally would keep it =)

    Ditto. Keep your bigger trailer, you can always manage to find uses for those things that ya thought were "too big" for some reason or another.

    Keep the trailer and fine yourself a cheap BP for local stuff.

    Well we are selling now for a different reason. Gotta pay some bills and so it was either the trailer now or the horses and the trailer in a few months. I opted for option 1. I have access to 3 trailers anytime I need them and we never go anywhere anyway and won't anytime soon. I would rather live without a trailer for a while than to have to sell my babies.

    I agree with you. If you have access to 3 trailers then sell yours and keep the horses. At least you can ride the horses....
