    Default Another one-horse trailer

    http://www.equispirit.com/products/1-horse-photos.htm

    If you're not into the Brenderup Solo or Baron-One, this is an attractive option.

    Huh. I have two horses, so not their market, but nice design.

    Cool, but $$$.
    Flip a coin. It's not what side lands that matters, but what side you were hoping for when the coin was still in the air.

    You call it boxed wine. I call it carboardeaux.

    Here is another 1 horse option. I am not sure of the pricing on this one.
    http://cotnertrailers.com/lone_star.html

    Cotner's are made fairly locally to me. I had a 1974 one that I finally sold in 2001. They are well made but are reasonably priced. They aren't as nice as a Hawk, Equispirit or Trail-et but are still a nice safe, solid, functional entry level trailer.

    This is just my opinion, but I would just get a little slant stock trailer (just 6' wide) if I wanted a one horse. I'd take the 2 horse divider out and store it (because that is for two really small horses) and tie in the first "stall" and it would be plenty big for a single horse or you could fit a mare and foal. Then you would have a little walk-in tack room and due to the size, could use it for other stuff too. CM makes one for under $6,000. The 6'6" high weighs about 2300 lb. I would get a taller one. I can't imagine it would add a ton of weight and you should loose a little removing the divider.

    I think the resale market would be a lot higher bc it would appeal to QH or other smaller breed owners as a two horse.

    Then I'd have $10,000 left to spend on other stuff!

    Pretty much my plan except I got a regular sized Moritz stock. Still too small for two large horses but very spacious for one.

    I am looking at a fully enclosed Valley trailer, 11' on the floor, which weighs 2500lbs with the ramp. Steel. $6795 with spare tire, and it's a straight and can fit 2 easily. 6' wide, though, so not gonna be huge for a giant horse.

    Same company will do a slant, but I didn't get one as it was too small for me to turn around and walk off, and in new england, a traditional-looking trailer that's a straight has better resale.

    I get what they're trying to do, but I really like that my horse has the extra space (it's more than four feet wide) in her Brenderup Solo to change position, put her feet wider if we're on a bumpy road, etc. I understand that it's nice to have a tack compartment, but, for one horse, I'd like to think you could fit everything in the back of your tow vehicle, and give your horse the extra room. JMO.

    Yes, I don't like the "normal" sized stall with a solid wall to the floor. Me thinks you could have a lot of scrambling in there.

    I think my Brenderup 2-horse was only slightly more $$ than that (3 years ago).

    I like this trailer, if I went down to just one horse I would look into this for sure.
