Our friend and fellow trainer Julie Trout has been visiting the ranch these past two weeks.

OUR NEW TRAILER GOES TO DIXIE CUP

Posted on Thursday, April 26, 2018 at 1:40 PM

Our new Pegasus trailer is going to Dixie Cup Horse Show.  We took delivery of our beautiful new 2018 Pegasus 44' Magnum trailer earlier this year.  She's gone to two local shows and is now ready for a longer trip with Mark Wilson. What a dream to haul! Larry McGee and his team at Pegasus Vans and Trailers were absolutely wonderful to work with. They customized our trailer down to the smallest detail and even put our logo in vinyl on the trailer. We couldn't be more pleased with the results. Honestly we've never worked with a company who has better communication than these folks. We received regular updates throughout the process and when the trailer was delivered it exceeded our expectations. Larry you've made us a loyal customer. The new product is exceptional.
