I am now the proud owner of a brand new Sundowner Charter SE bumper pull trailer! We brought it home (well, to the barn) on Saturday; I had an electronic brake controller installed on the truck this morning and am ready to roll!
I’m really excited about this trailer for a variety of reasons, but the number one is FREEDOM! Oklahoma is not an ideal place to event, because a) other eventers are few in number, and b) events, even schooling ones, are at minimum, two hours away. I board at a barn full of dressage people who have minimal interest in jumping, so it’s hard to convince them to take their horses to events just so I can catch a ride.
With my own trailer, I’m now able to make plans for shows that aren’t just dressage! Here what the rest of the year is tentatively looking like:
- September 19: schooling dressage show @ Bridle Creek in Sperry, OK with Gina
- October 4: schooling combined test @ Gallery Farm in Noble, OK with Moe
- October 24: Harvard Fox Hounds opening hunt @ Flint Creek, OK with Gina
- November ??: hunter pace @ Flint Creek, OK with Gina
Even though hauling horses is still scary, at least now I’m confident in my equipment!
