I was wondering how large of a horse can fit into a Brenderup Baron. I will be looking at a 17.1 hh 1300 lb horse this week and was wondering if it would fit into my Baron. The largest we have hauled is 16.2 hh and he goes in fine but with not a whole lot of room to spare. We would be hauling two horse's of this size. I think we will be fine but would like to hear from someone who has done this already, thanks.
How did you fit those horses in? I have a 16.3 TB and a 17.2 BWB, and I cannot for the life of me figure out how I will fit either of them into my Baron TC. My 16.1 hh TB just barely fits. Do you set the chest bar in a certain way, or how do you fit them, lengthwise? The 16.3 TB wears an 84 blanket, and the BWB, an 86. Thanks!
My 17.2 size 87 blanket wearing draft cross fit although usually I preferred for him to ride alone when he was on it so e could have the whole thing and could ride diagonally. I'd either tie the divider over to one side or take it out entirely. He was ok with another horse it just made for a tighter fit.
It honestly depends on your horse's build. My 16 hh looong backed horse technically "fits" but not comfortably -- he stares at me with displeasure while resembling a sardine in a can. So it really is best to try the horse ON the trailer in question before you spend a bunch of money.
