Re: [RC] Trailer Advise - Carol Suggs

Question asked was "We are thinking of trading in for a three or four horse
slant. I was  wondering how you deal with it if the inner horse freaks out?"

Juli:  You can get a trailer that has a 1st stall emergency door. This comes
in very handy in case you need to get into the trailer for some reason while
your horses are loaded.  It is also handy if you get rear ended and your
back door is smashed and you can't open it.  You can open the emergency 1st
stall door and jump your horses out thru that exit.  It might take you some
time to unhinge the partitions (depending on what kind you have), but its
doable.

I have a related trailer question. I have a Jamco two horse straight load.
We now have three horses...they keep showing up I don't know how it
happens!
; ) We are thinking of trading in for a three or four horse slant. I was
wondering how you deal with it if the inner horse freaks out. It seems
cumbersome and dangerous to have to unload all the horses to deal with the
horse having a problem and if you are trailering four with only two people
it is hard to hold all the horses and have one person dealing with the
problem. I am use to four horse head to head straights, but we totally
cannot afford that! Just wondering opinions on this. Thanks,

Alisanne,<br>&gt;I have pulled many trailers but I like a gooseneck best
because it <br>&gt;will not sway back and forth like a bumper pull. I like
a
slant load <br>&gt;because you can walk in with each horse, tie'em, close
the <br>&gt;partition, walk in the next, etc. without needing an escape
door. I <br>&gt;would get a small living quarters right away if you can
afford it <br>&gt;cause you will be much more comfortable. I bought a
TrailsWest <br>&gt;because it seemed very well made, rubber on the floor,
walls, rear <br>&gt;door, very solid divider (2 horse), 25gal water tank,
thick epoxy <br>&gt;paint, lots of lights, 4 wheel electric brakes, add a
high-tie of <br>&gt;some kind on each side and you are set. These babies
are
heavy <br>&gt;(8000lbs with 2 horses and gear for my trailer) so you need
a
heavy <br>&gt;duty truck. Good Luck<br>&gt;<br>&gt;Don
