Horses anyone?


I love my horses and when we retire is it possible to take them along?  Wandering if anyone does this and just lives out of a really nice truck camper?  With all of the BLM to ride and other parks, it would be a shame to not have a horse....

In our workamping gigs as hosts I have seen horse trailers with an RV built-in. They don't appear to have a lot of living space for the humans. I guess it would depend on how many horses your transporting. I've also seen a couple RV parks that also had accommodations for horses. So I would say yes it's possible.

My issue with horses would be what to do with them when one decided to go off and see other sights.  Also, even though on BLM land, there would be times for a need for hay, so where to put that when traveling.

Then there are these:

Sundowner Trailer Corporation - Living Quarters

Now, with those, one would have to have a gooseneck hitch instead of a bumper pull.

There are two different model series and one can click on each of the model numbers listed to get brochures for some of them.

Oh, I'd go for the Limited Edition....

.....just sayin'.  The horses might want to go in style.

Good link, Gene, hadn't thought about this, thanks.

Thanks, Terry, another good idea.  I've always loved the Sundowners.  Ad these to my wish list.  biggrin

As far as what to do with them when we are traveling...I guess I would look at temporary boarding while staying in one place. I've traveled all over with my horse to rodeos and we usually did it with an overcab camper (truck camper) and a large tag-a-long trailer. We would rent a stall here, board at a place there...just whatever. And we also carried corral panels on the side of the trailer to set up when we got somewhere. We almost always primitive camped or "boondocked" as most campgrounds are not horse friendly. But there was this one campground in Lebanon TN that was full hook-up campground and it had a really nice horse barn and they let us keep my horse in one of their stalls, for a fee of course. But, it was home to a mounted park patrol. They were super nice and friendly.


As far as the hay, grain and other supplies...we used the front half of the trailer to store it all and restock as needed. Also using a "maintenance feed" rather than a sweet feed and adding a few alfalfa pellets or cubes work well for temporary solutions. 

I was just curious if there was anybody on this forum that took their larger pets with them and how was it going.  wink

this fall dh and i are planning to move to rv living full time.
next winter we may stay put for a few months visiting family, in which case i'll board her nearby.
long term i hope to do a year or more swing through the western states with her.
lots of research still going on as to what will be the perfect rig set up.
since we'll be full timers our living quarters must be darn comfy and of course hers must be that as well as safe as i can manage for her.
