So back to the point, now. Could a two horse trailer fit three horses? I measured my trailer today and it's about 15 feet long. We put an 14.2hh appy gelding and 16hh paint mare in there and they fit fine already. We don't have a divider in between them, they don't fight at all and have plenty of wiggle room. There is a spot in the front of the trailer that has a side door, then a pannel type divider that separates it so you can put tack up there. It takes about four or five feet off the room for the horses. But that's how we always put them in.
I was wondering if this trailer would be large enough to fit three horses at a diagonal. I'm not sure how wide it is, but fits about two and a half horses wide. (I'm just saying this because my gelding is perfect weight for a horse his size, but takes up space, and the mare is a bit chubby.)
Is there any other way I could organize 3 horses in the trailer? Or is diagonal the only way? (I'm just wondering this if someday I got another horse. I plan to trail ride, so transporting multiple horses would be a must. Plus if I went on a ride with someone who didn't have a trailer, it would be nice to be able to say "hey, we have space in our trailer."
Sorry for the novel, but I am sort of a newbie, though I have been with horses for nearly 8 years now, more than half my life. :3
