I have both, since AAA covers our cars and I use other services. US rider is strictly for the horse trailer in my world. It will not take the place of AAA, but, AAA will NOT help you with your horse or trailer. THey will leave it at the side of the road. I have asked them several times as I had no idea how worthless they would be if something happened with the trailer in tow. Worth the $$ for me, and my piece of mind.

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......

Yes. I called them once when I couldn't start my mom's car, and they were ready to come when I need (it was next to my house, and I didn't need it same day). Thankfully I was able to start it next day (to take to my mechanics).

I didn't know until now about the US Rider help assistance. I do almost no trailering with horses anymore, but there was one time I sure could have used the coverage and gladly paid the monthly premium(sp?).

I was taking my Granddaughter, my mare and our POA mare to a week-end horse camping and Benefit trail ride about a 2 hour drive to get to the campsite. All of a sudden going 60 mph I had a shimming and shaking going on with my truck and trailer. I pulled over, got out of the truck and walked all around the trailer and truck. I didn't see anything wrong or amiss so I got back in the truck and started off again. Got about a mile further and KA-BOOM, a dust cloud covered us, by Granddaughter went ballistic and I had a situation!!! I got out and a rear tire on my truck had blown to pieces. I thank my lucky stars it wasn't a front/steer tire that blew. Fortunately 2 men and their wives saw the tire blow and stopped to help me get the spare on the ground. Instead of going on to the Benefit I took us back home and the next day my DH took the truck and got 4 new 10-ply tires put on the truck.
