    Default Three horse slant question

    I am looking at three horse slants, but one of the three is a deft cross, and she is more than 86inches long. Are the trailers I am looking at slim, or is 86 inches standard? What am I missing...do I need a wider trailer than normal?

    Thanks!

    I have a mare that is not nearly that long. She prefers a slant and when I bought a two horse bumper pull, I had to tinker with the divider to give her a bit more room. That said, it doesn't matter, as I only will haul one horse. And in a pinch she can be crammed in the normal space for a short ride.
    There are wider trailers that somehow are built out over wheel well; dont know how easy they are to find or how pricing, etc differ.
    We don't get less brave; we get a bigger sense of self-preservation........

    I have an extra tall three horse BP and a very big and long horse (18.2HH and wears an 86" blanket.) When he is trailered, I leave the middle and back slot open for him so he has more room. Although he can be squished into just the middle slot, he seems much more comfortable with the two slots.
