Re: [RC] Friends trailer tragedy has me thinking - A. Perez

 I would talk to some trailer dealers to see if they have heard
of this sort of failure with this trailer before.  You could
also check the 'Trailer Talk' forum at Horse Trailer Worl
- it has lots of info, and you can post questions. 

From what you say, it sounds like the latch on the breast-bar
failed?  That should not be an inherant problem with all
fiberglass traielrs, but may be a design flaw with this specific
model of trailer... or may not be, could just be a fluke.  If
you are planning to haul un-trained (trailer-trained, that is)
horses, you'd better stick to steel stock trailers.  But the
better plan would be only to haul horses that have been trained
to trailer.
