RE: Spam:****, [RC] traveling west - Debbie Parsons

Another handy website: http://www.countyfairgrounds.net/

If you want to use fairgrounds, you should check ahead to see if you can stay 
there because many in 
the colder states' fairgrounds are in full use this time of the year. I got 
caught out when I went 
through WY on the way to the Big Horn. As this was an unplanned event due to 
the cancellation of 
Tevis, I had to wing it. Three of the towns with fairgrounds that I planned to 
stop at had rodeos 
going on so we ended up parking overnight in a Walmart parking lot! My trailer 
is 8ft wide and I 
had removed the divider between the 2nd and 3rd stall so once I untied my 
horse, he had room to 
turn around. By that point he had decided that eating and drinking were 
necessary to survival so he 
camped fine in the trailer overnight. I have big dropdown windows on both sides 
so there was plenty 
of airflow. I think he had as much room in the trailer as he did in the stall 
at the Rawlins, WY 
fairgrounds. Not something I want to do again but in a pinch now I know it will 
work or at least 
work with Boomer who is a laid back kind of horse.

Guess I should have answered
publically J  www.horseandtravel.com  www.horsetrip.com  and www.horsemotel.com 
(best one for where 
been) are three great sites for finding overnight board for horse and driver. 
Also, fairgrounds typically will put up overnight travelers and their horses.
