Many years ago I bought an older two horse straight haul bumper pull trailer. It was in horrible condition, but my hubby and I worked on it and cleaned it all up and made it into a single draft size horse trailer. The roof had been raised on it, and it accomidated my 18hh, 1800 lb clydesdale. But to do so I had to remove the center divider.
Now I no longer have an 18hh clyde, but a 17 hh clyde/tb cross, who is narrow, and doesn't need the full trailer size. I would like to install a center divider, as my friend recently bought a warmblood, and will be selling her too small trailer.
I can't seem to find a center divider that I can just purchase, and I'm not sure on how to start to have my hubby build one. Any suggestions or images that you might have of your divider. This is an older trailer, one from the 80's, so if anyone has a trailer with the original divider that they could take a photo of. It was so many years ago we redid the trailer I don't remember what they look like.
Also I'm wondering if I could have a swinging divider? One that was secured at the manger spot, and the bump chains on either side would keep it from moving one way or the other. I think the benderup's might have a similiar feature. I just like the idea of with a harder loader, we could swing the divider to one side, to make it more inviting.
Any images or ideas would be so appreciated, I have done an exhausted search online and can't seem to find anything.
Thank you so much. Oh and yes hubby has access to a welder and is a good one.
