Now that my trailering problems are... Okay, I'm a little nervous to say they are RESOLVED. Let's just say I think I have the tools to solve things and my horse does seem to be a much improved loader.
So now I'm dreaming of traveling. Of course I work full time, have two wonderful children who are not yet horse addicted, and have all these other pesky responsibilities.
Anywhoo... Back to dreaming....
I won't be able to make the trip I'd hoped to to Mark Rashid's clinic in Sante Fe (but I'll be looking for another excuse to get over there!), because we are headed to Disney World the next week (yes, taking the kids out of school for a theme park. bad mommy. Any tips? lol)
But I want to go somewhere far, far away. Or maybe at least two days away... Maybe in November... So I was excited to find this site. Bed and Barn! How fun is that?
I want to learn more about long hauling so here are my questions:
1. When do you need to take a break with a horse? I mean, I get out and stop for meals, if you're in a safe location should you take your horse out anywhere along the way or not?
2. Where do you like to stay? Have you stayed in a bed and barn?
3. What's the furthest you've gone with your horse (Lytha, you definitely win this one! LOL).
4. What's your tip for the intrepid horse traveler?
5. And, for fun, if you owned a Horse Motel, what would you call it
