Horse Camp

I camp several times a year with family and friends. Halloween weekend is usually our last camping trip of the year. Our days are spent riding and the evenings are for socializing.

The fall foliage seemed to magically appear overnight with the arrival of rain.
Horse camp with the pavilion on the left, stalls in the right and camp sites up the hill.
The horse trailer is also a camper. The three window at the back are where the horses ride and everything forward is the living quarters. The water and electricity hook up makes for luxury camping.
A view of inside where the horses ride. While at camp, they stay in stalls as they are only in the trailer while being transported. The closed door on the left is where we store our tack.
Inside is a small bathroom, kitchen and small couch. The bed is in the elevated area in the goose neck over where the trailer is hooked to the truck. The propane heat keeps the trailer cozy on a rainy fall weekend.

The Halloween party in the pavilion featured a band and costume contest.
Always fun the spend three days playing cowgirl.

    I love the pet pictures! I sung out “Jolene, Jolene, Joleeeeene!” when I saw the picture of your dog. Really, though, that looks like my kind of camping and socializing. The band looked like they would have had me tapping my toes.

      The band has a major Eagles fascination. My favorite is the band that does lots of George Jones. The bands are always local. Lots of talent in the woods of Kentucky and Tennessee. And Jolene is used to people singing to her!

        I would have loved it too. George Jones is a classis. Both of those states are on my travel list of places in the US I want to visit. My best friend Mikey, lived just outside of Memphis for a bit and the pictures and stories from that time were the best and I hope to experience.

        I bet she does 🙂 Now I am singing it again…

        If you come to Nashville, let me know. Check out the podcast Cocaine & Rhinestones. It is great for all music fans (not just country.) The second season, now underway, is all about George Jones. I have learned so much about music publishing, songwriting credits, recording and the general shittery of record companies.

        This time I am going to look up Cocaine and Cowboys and adding to my podcast list. Yes, I am sure my husband might like it as well. Thanks for the tip!

        I would definitely look you up! I am sure we can share a margarita somewhere 😀

      It is fun and a great community. I decided to do this post because so many have no concept of this population. We are everywhere, but those that do not ride don’t notice us. Once you start looking, particularly on interstates, you will notice lots of horse trailers.

        My husband’s cousin and her husband transport horses from one place to another for different owners. They drive a huge truck with a horse trailer behind it. They absolutely love the job and have driven to and through almost every state. They’re always posting pictures of the horses on Facebook and talk about the different personalities of the horses and the owners who trust them with their care on the long trips.

        I love this! I have know people who have used long haulers. Nice to have a connection.

        Like with dog breeds, they are also big differences in horse breeds. I describe out Walking horses as the labs of the horse world.

    This looks like fun. I didn’t know about the luxury camping accommodations within one of those trailers. And as for Jolene, how could you do anything properly without her supervision!
