Last summer I bought a pasture companion for my 13 year old Quarter horse gelding, Cody. She is a retired racehorse, 11 years old, and I've enjoyed owning her for the past year. Currently she's being ridden on the trails and around the barn; nothing fancy, but we've had a great deal of time to bond so far, and boy, have we!
The two horses get along great and I've trailered them both, together on multiple occasions. Mind you, the farthest they've gone in a trailer together was about thirty miles. Now, I'm heading to Wyoming, which is about sixteen hours away. We plan to spend five nights on the road, taking our time, which means we'll be driving about three to three and a half hours in the car each day. Does anyone have any advice for us before we go? NOTE: We're scheduled to leave around the end of June, probably the 29th.
We haven't figured out where to keep the horses at night while we're on the road. We do have a boarding stable ready for us in Wyoming, but if you've had experience driving out of state with a horse, could you please let me know what to look out for? What should I keep in mind, and what should I bring along? What do I need to know, and where did you keep your horses overnight?
