Trailer configurations--how do you get around with horse and cart(s)?
I'm sniffing around the prospect of getting a new trailer next year. I mainly event one horse, sometimes haul a friend along, and my 2H trailer is OK for that. However, I want to up-size a little bit and eventually want to do some competitive driving, either with my current pony or with a small horse. (I even have one picked out, currently in training) :)
So in thinking about types of trailers to get, I am well aware that the smartest thing to do would be to get the kind of trailer I need most of the time--which would be a regular 2 horse job. But I sure would love to have the option of 3 horses, and/or space for a small cart(s).
My "dream trailer" is one of those 2+1 straight loads, with the biggish box stall in front of two regular straight load stalls. However, the reality is that this will be much more room than I need a lot of the time. I don't want two trailers. :) I'm leaning towards a gooseneck.
The other thing that keeps going 'round in my head is a 3 horse slant. Now, I don't LIKE slants much. But in a compact space it seems you can do a lot, take one horse, two horses, three horses, one horse and lots of gear, one horse and a cart, etc. etc. just be reconfiguring the "box".
Is this what most of you do, or do you have a preferred arrangement for transporting horse and cart(s)? A stock trailer, maybe? (I'm not wild about them, either) I'd love to hear (and maybe see, if you have pics) the kind of rigs that driving folks use to get around. Thanks.
