Will my 6Ft trailer carry a 16 Hand horse

I have a 6ft tall (6'x18') horse trailer and I am wondering if I buy a horse that is 16 hands tall, will she fit? (will she be too tall?)

It's a little tight. They're better off in 7ft trailers.

6' is unusually short, most vare at least 6'6"

Honestly, it is not a great plan. "Can" and "should" are two different things. You "could" put the horse in that trailer, but that doesn't mean you should. I would not do it.

I wouldn't do it personally. My trailer is 7 ft and my 15'1 paint still can (and do sometime) smack her head (so I have to put a bumper cap on).
