The Trail Pals Story


The Trail Pals Story

WHO WE ARE

Trail Pals was originally a horse trailer dealership in Oregon, started in 2003 by two trail riding pals. Resulting from the many inquiries we received, we decided to sell our horse trailer upgrades separately--and then launched the business online. Soon, due to the huge customer demand, we added horse trailer replacement parts. We don't sell trailers anymore--but now we have over 14 years of experience in the industry, which gives us a very good working knowledge of all types of horse trailers, from vintage to brand new. We ride, we trailer, we install and use a lot of the parts we sell on our own trailers. And, with a background in customer service, we will treat you right!

TARGET MARKET

We specialize in the newest horse trailer accessories, hard-to-find and vintage horse trailer parts, and we keep them in stock! You will find a lot of "crossover" items that also work for dog trailers & every type of livestock trailer. Electrical, axles, brakes, hitches & LED lights are not our area of expertise. We also try not to carry RV items. Restoring a vintage horse trailer? Send us a photo. Call or email us---we'll be happy to help & advice is free!

OUR PRODUCTS

Our many suppliers and manufacturers offer thousands of products (which we have full access to) and we can make all of these items available to you. But, obviously, we cannot feature all of these products on our web site.We currently feature over 600 items that we feel are the most in demand from horse trailer owners. Contact us if you need something you don't see or email us a photo of your old or broken part. We will do our best to help you find the product you are searching for, even it comes from somewhere else or a competitor.


HOW'S BUSINESS?

This was a business first started at a corner desk in the kitchen, then progressed to the tiny attic & then the full basement. We relocated our home business from Oregon to Tennessee in December 2011 and a year later we opened our first retail location. For family reasons, we moved the store back to Sandy, Oregon in April, 2014. Our family owned and operated business is growing at our retail location (near City Hall, Meinig Park & Joe's Donuts).  We have found our niche- we are a horse trailer-specific web site for horse trailer parts & accessories. There is definitely a need for an online business like ours, for horse trailer owners that can't find a local horse trailer dealer who stocks parts. Our large competitors stock some of the same product, but we are the only ones who carry these parts in EVERY size and material available, so you have the best selection to choose from. Purchasing these items online makes total sense--the customer can shop when they have the time & the items you need are quickly shipped to your door, saving both time & money.

Maybe now you'll have more time to ride your horse, because we say:

         "If you are too busy to ride your horse--you are too busy!"
