I have a Clinton Anderson Special Edition two horse trailer, I will have to find a pic of it, we bought it at his clinic down in Minniapolis in 1997 and I love it! A friend has a stock trailer so if there is more than two of us who go we use it.......

I'd give my right arm for an old beater trailer.

I want a trailer :( We always have to borrow DH's dad's funky trailer...it's safe and solid, but it's really more for cows. I would love a fully enclosed something or other like the OP, but it will never happen. DH plans on getting a stock trailer when we do get one.

Nice trailer. Quick question though. I have always avoided the trailers that had the back tack part like that thinking, the horse has a more limited view of the inside of the trailer. Do you ever have an issue loading a horse into that? I mean, obviously you likely haul your own trained horses and they are used to it. I was just afraid the limited size of the opening might freak some horses out. I might over think things, I tend to do that. Ha ha I do also like the 4 star trailers though

^ I often catch a ride with my friend in her 4-horse with a rear tack. I've never had problems loading him. I think it's a nice feature.

It's a 2003 4-horse Kiefferbuilt slant load. I'd like to trade it in on a smaller living quarters... Maybe next year....

There is a horse trailer forum on here. Horse Trailers

I just got my horse trailer about a month ago. It's a 2003 Exiss 3 horse slant. Just a dressing room for now, as I don't really need living quarters at this point. I'm got a construction (non-horse hubby though, so we could turn it into one down the road if I need.

This is the only photo I have of it, when we hooked it up to take it home. So far, I love it!

The best idea is to train your horse to load in ANYTHING. In case of an emergency, you want them to hop on no questiosn asked. I recently bought Clinton Anderson's trailer loading DVD and it was fantastic. Of course, more trailer loading issues are actually a ground manners issue (in one form or another). So if you fix the ground manners, the trailer part comes easy. The main idea is that you should be able to "send" your horse wherever you point, and they go. Including a slant load trailer with rear tack.

Certainly, it can be a little scarier for a horse to go through a narrow opening, rather than a wide open back, but it's a matter of trust and respect.
