I've got a question. We have a gooseneck trailer. While it doesn't have LQ and isn't brand new, it is just the type of trailer that could be stolen and turned over very quickly. We regularly have people ask to buy it.

My daughter has been working back into showing the last year or so, and we've discovered that quite a few of the big shows are having a lot of theft issues now unfortunately. I'm going to find a lock for the trailer and am looking for suggestions. I saw one that went on the wheel (covered all the lug nuts so the wheel couldn't be removed).

Any suggestions to save me some time researching?

LOL! Sure, that was the plan when I first registered on this site. We figured we knew exactly what we wanted (BWV, 200 pts, Dec UY) but our resale attempts kept falling through. We ended up buying direct (SSR, 150 pts, Oct UY) instead. How we got from BWV-resale to SSR-direct is a long story but we've been content with the outcome. Although we've stayed at most of the DVC properties, we use BWV more than any other due to our conference activities at the Swan, Dolphin and Yacht Club.

The best way to keep it from being stolen at a show is to leave it hitched to your truck. ...of course, that isn't always practical. But I suggest a lock that goes over the receiver instead of the wheel.

I don't own a horse....maybe one day.

My cousin owns horse farms in central Florida and western NJ. They compete in jumping & polo.
Just visiting there is a mini vacation. They are such beautiful animals.

I learned to ride on a sweet Palomino named Queenie she was such a lovely girl.

We are in Western NJ, where are your cousins? I live in North Warren. We have horses and there is a 50 acre standardbred farm across the street from us.

Alas, no LQ yet so have to have the truck for meals and hotels.

I had thought the kind you mentioned would be best, but I haven't come across one yet - just need to spend more time looking, I guess. Thanks!

Whoo-hoo! I received an email congratulating me on passing my first Parelli audition (Level 1, Online). I submitted my video in Dec filmed with my mare who, just a year ago, was a hot, rearing, emotional mess following double arthroscopic surgery to remove bone chips from her front fetlock joints. While it took me a full year to get a presentable audition, her performance was lovely: calm, connected, focused and (mostly) obedient. We had one major refusal in the film, but we were still passed with a "1++" score.

I'm so thrilled at the progress she has made.

I'm thrilled for you both & so glad she has recovered so well !

Now tell me what it all means, are you going for Parelli certification to be a trainer instructor? So happy for you
would love to see pics what's her name ?

so since we were talking about Saratogs Springs Resort my curiousity finally got the better of me & I went to check it out OMGoodness ! I don't know the whole renting\ buying points thing works but I would very much like to stay there
Of course I immediately felt right at home seeing the New York State flag flying

Took a look in Turf Bar & Grill loved the whole equestrian decor and the old historical
paintings and prints from NY got a real kick out of the framed jockey silks especially the one with Mickey Mouse print

That statute of the horse & jockey in the winners circle next time I bring a camera
But $32. for NY strip steak ? not my budget !

Is it Silver Bit and Spurs? That's the biggest stable up there I think. I used to live close to Whitehouse but moved even further west.

Great picture by the way!!

Fair enough.

And I still need to post my girlies up here and of course my fuzzy little man. My farrier was this weekend and she couldn't believe how fuzzy he truly is. And he has this little turnout rug on. I love my mini.
