Poster I am selling my Brenderup Royal 2- horse trailer.  It is in excellent condition with very low, local mileage. I bought it new in 2009, and it can handle 7-hand horses.  This trailer can be driven with a V6 SUV type vehicle. I highly praise these trailers for their comfort, safety, quality, and handling capabilities.  There is very little maintenance required. I am asking 12,000. Please contact me by phone at 250-661-7117 Victoria (13-December)

Photo For Lease: Haflinger 11-year-old gelding, 13.3hh. He is powerfully built, capable of carrying a rider of any size and has no trouble out-walking the bigger horses. Earlier this year Canyon had several weeks of liberty training with Heather Nelson and a month of ring work with a professional trainer. He has spent days in the mountains where he was tied to the trailer overnight and high-lined. I have only used him as a trail horse, but he has also been trained to drive. Although Canyon has a solid whoa, he is probably too spunky for a beginner. He is now boarded at a farm near the Nanaimo airport where I would prefer to keep him in exchange for board, although I would consider letting him go off property if it was close. Please call (250) 247-8088 ( 18-November)
