Now that I'm... ahem... CANTERING, I think it's high time I get my trailer organized.
So I'm going to show you my largely blank canvas and see what you think.
I need advice. And since there are so many experience folks here... Bring it on!!
For example - this is my door.
It's got a window, so I've got a half space to work with. I've seen those trailer pocket things, but they seem to require a full door. Still if I can find one, I think this is the place for it. Usually I see brushes and hoof picks and such. I'm going to buy a set for the trailer, so I can stop packing for every trip.
Cuz I plan to do more traveling, ya know.
Then I have a modest set of hooks.
Inside I've got six hooks - two holding a manure fork, one holding a shovel, and the rest for helmets and bridles.
Then I bought this to carry hay in. I fill hay bags from this, because I found hay bags to be a big leaking mess. This way I fill hay at the location. There's still hay everywhere, but it's not as bad.
This is my assistant.
She seems unclear on how to properly stow the girth.
She is persistent, though. I appreciate that in an assistant. To a point.
I think she's trying to fold it. Good girl, Roxie.
Okay, back to work. I tried the haybags here, but they didn't really work.
I only have two saddle racks, because one broke. I definitely need to replace that.
The single most useful tool in my trailer (next to the manure fork). I think I need to expand my tool box a bit, though.
Found a safe place for my paperwork - coggins, emergency info, etc. And this shoe holder will do to hold things for now.
On my list:
I need an emergency trail kit (what should go in there?), a set of brushes, an emergency boot. Tools to change a tire (something to roll the trailer on if I get a flat, for example.).
What do you carry in your trailer? Any tips (like the shoe holder) to make the most of a modest budget?
