So I got a used horse trailer a few months after I got Gen. It took us to many lessons and shows and I am so happy I had it. That was 10 years ago now. I can’t even say I barely use it anymore…I haven’t used it in 2 years! I keep it at the farm Gen is boarded it and use it as storage. It is kept up by the ring so I rarely even look at it. One of the other boarders left a note on the board to let me know one of the trailer tires was low. It still has taken me about a week to even bother coming to put in air in.
When I finally got up here tonight I looked at it and immediately felt terrible. My poor trailer is clearly neglected! There is green scuz all over it and while one tire was clearly flat, all of them were low. The trailer is a 1995 sundowner, and at this moment it looks it.
If I am being honest with myself, I think the time has come to let go of it. There is a small part of me that isn’t ready for that yet…a teensy tiny voice that says my show days are not over yet.
How long should one keep a trailer for with a retired horse when you are not riding or showing anything else?
