    Pretty much this exactly. There is a local ranch here that uses a very nice stock trailer for their show drafts. It has the dividers to make box stalls. They will load two in the front, close that...

    You should be fine, especially if you are only going to get a 2H trailer. I have a steel 2H with tack room that is 5000 lbs empty. I usually only haul 1 horse (1200lb TB), but when I haul 2 and load...

    I'm actually excited that as of right now the plan is to race him as a four year old. We see so few horses that run well in the triple crown races continue after their three year old season. Some due...

    I don't really see it as an excuse, that's just the way the horse runs. Fitness probably played a role, but I don't think it was the main factor.

    Thanks! Just in time to see Untapable win the Cotillion. I saw her in person at the Oaks and she is just stunning. Hoping Chrome has a good trip in the Pennsylvania Derby.

    I'm curious as to the horror at the step-up/down trailers. Is it just a potential risk issue or what? Not trying to be snarky, but I've never met anybody with such a strong opinion on it.

    Well, I was about to suggest this girth, which was the only girth that worked for my super sensitive mare, but I reread your post and saw that you've already tried neoprene.

    I have a 2H slant BP with tack room. My very large (16.2) paint mare fit in it no problem, as does my sorta large (16H)TB. Would it fit a draft or warmblood? Probably not. It does do a great job with...

    It does get better, but it takes discipline. My only debt now is about $25000 in student loans. When the economy tanked a few years ago I was lucky and kept my job, but my hours got drastically cut. ...

    Couldn't have said it better myself. I've attended symposiums where I gained as much knowledge through the lecture and demonstrations as I have riding in clinics that cost more. It does depend on the...
