Re: [RC] Long Distance Hauling - Kathy Klenk

Do you just drive into the fairground and there will be people there or do you have to call ahead? If you have to call ahead do you just look up 'fairgrounds' for that particular state?

One thing I have found to help in long distance hauling is an underlay material that goes under the hard rubber floor mats. It is a foam type of material I special ordered from the Trailer dealer. It makes it much springier and softer. It seems to absorb the shocks of the road much better. In addition I use shavings to soak up pee and poop. We unload every 5-6 hours. My trailer has an insulation package and that seems to keep the heat down in the summer much better than my old uninsulated rig. It is important to let them graze and get their heads lowered at rest stops.
The fairground idea mentioned is great. We hauled from Missouri to California and back this summer and used fairgrounds almost every night. It was cheap ( $5-10 for two horses and plugging into electric), plus we turned the horses into the arena after the 4-H kids left. Most of the time they spent the night in a roping pen or something larger than a stall.
Hope this helps
