Hi, all. New here. We're considering buying a used Benderup 2H trailer (1998, Prestige model). No experience with Benderup - just know that they were the choice for lightweight trailers. We have a 15.2h QH who's good with trailers. Any advice on Benderups? I'm concerned mostly with repair and replacement parts, now that they're no longer made. Also, I've read a few things online about handling issues due to weight (swaying, fish-tailing). Any truth to that? We'd be pulling with an F-250, so no issue with tow vehicle capability. Thanks!
hey i cant get into my other profile my other one is alexandria lucas i asked the question abt the hilason saddles and i was wondering if all my 100+ friends would send me friend request so i can accept them i lost the pass to my gmail i used to the other one so had to make another one thx! and abt the saddle there are special saddle pads you can get for them and i think i might buy another one but buy one with the tree and my mother is getting one that will fit all our horses so ill try that one on my paint mare
Does anyone know of any where I can insure my show horse? I'm Canadian, so I need somewhere that will insure in Canada, of course. I'm looking for something like vet insurance, liability, full mortality. If I can throw my saddle on there it would be awesome, too, as Bob's Customs aren't cheap, but I haven't been able to find a place to insure that either! I only know of Henry Equestrian Insurance, just wanted to look around some more.
I was wondering if anyone's made their own mechanical cow and how you did it? I can't find a RCH trainer within an hour of where I live, and I really can't afford to pay $1500 for one at this point in time, so I thought I might be able to make my own. That, and I think it would be cheaper to buy a cow for that much, but I'm not allowed to buy a cow... So, I guess this is my only option!
I had a pretty serious accident about six months ago. Im no longer afraid of riding horses or working on the ground. The only fear I have is riding MY horse. She is three but very well broke and the accident was not just her fault and she never had acted up and hasn't since but I still get scared when im on her! Any suggestions? Is this normal?
