It cost me a pretty penny, but I’m finally rigged up to pull a trailer. I had to have a wiring package installed in my vehicle that would connect to the trailer lights and brakes. I’m leasing the trailer from my barn owner. I figured leasing it is cheaper than buying a new trailer. I can’t drop a couple grand right now.
I rigged the trailer up (had to have some help from my trusty barn friends) and pulled it empty to get the hang of it. This is the first time I have ever pulled anything, but surprisingly, it wasn’t bad at all. That might have something to do with the fact that I never went above 35. Ha ha. I should put a sign on the back that says, “Just pass me, because I’m not going any faster. :)” Next step will be pulling the horse trailer with an actual horse in it.
In other news, I have entered Baron in a show on Saturday. I am questioning my own sanity, because I have ridden all summer very frequently, but I have not been taking lessons. But by the time spring and the new show season roll around, I will be PREGNANT. Like big pregnant. So I want to go ahead and do a fall show instead of waiting another year and a half.
I only registered for 3 classes- Walk/Trot Equitation, Walk/Trot Under Saddle, and Walk/Trot Pleasure. I registered for Beginner Level 1. That’s as low as you can go. I think we will do fine. I’m not expecting ribbons; I just want the experience!
I think my husband is going to the show with me to play photographer, so look for pics and an update after the show…
