Backing 101

Backing was an adventure this evening, and I don't mean backing a horse, as in mounting a young horse for the first time. I'm talkin' backing my new horse trailer! Crazy! I understand the concept of turning the steering wheel to the right when you want the trailer to go left and vice versa. But it felt like a sophisticated dance and I've got two left feet. I tried to park the trailer alongside our house, but I had to traverse a slight serpentine pattern around a parked car and a mound of dirt. Couldn't do it.

At least I was spared the most difficult part of trailer backing according to, which is "...having many people watch you, waiting for you to screw up."
