I have towed two horses for over 40 yrs and would be lost without a towing vehicle and horse trailer

3/21/2013 8:56:22 AM

Having my own rig is so much easier than having to coordinate with someone else to haul.

3/21/2013 7:31:55 AM

I have a 2 horse bumper pull and use it 1-2 times per week for local travel.

3/21/2013 5:47:18 AM

Why this survey? Seems rather pointless.

3/21/2013 12:02:21 AM

When my horse is in work I usually use my trailer about once a week.

3/20/2013 11:29:40 PM

I sporadically haul our horses, and my experience and confidence level are not as high as I'd like.

Looking to buy my first trailer soon!

It is truly amazing that my horses like to travel with me!

I only haul a few times a year.

3/20/2013 9:57:59 PM

Have a three-horse slant load. Love it.

3/20/2013 9:17:45 PM

If you own a horse you should own a trailer, and be ready to haul at a moments notice!

Yes, I haul, and have a trailer, but I rarely haul. This answer was not an option you gave.
