With a larger gooseneck, you require a special drivers license as well. Last spring before a rodeo, I saw a loaded rig stopped at a highway DOT check, horses being unloaded, and the owners on their cell phones, so I am assuming they were pulled. I made it through after a fairly thorough check, almost made me late for riding lessons!

I haven't been searching very thoroughly, but about 2 weeks ago I went and googled all the used horse trailers and I searched through quite a lot of websites looking for trailers within 200 miles and I couldn't find anything tall enough under $3,000, then last week I stumbled across this one.
If it doesn't have trailer breaks(which I think it does) I'll just save up to have them installed. Since I don't personally have a truck it won't be getting used much, but at least I can practice loading.
