Looking for 1H trailer in MI, OH, IN area

Looking for the ever elusive 1 horse trailer in the michigan, ohio, or indiana area. Needs to be $500 or less, doesn't need to be pretty, just hauling ready with good floors and tires. Also needs to be tall enough to hold a 17 hand horse. If anybody sees one or hears somebody with one for sale let me know!

Wow that is going to be hard to find. Have you thought about going to a 2 horse and using the extra space for hay, tack, etc.?

I have actually seen a couple floating around craigslist, but I didn't have the money at the time.

My boyfriend seems to think the most my jeep could pull would be a one horse, but I am looking into it a bit more. There are a ton of really nice little two horses for sale right around me in my price range.

Unless it's a nice single, like a Brenderup, a two horse trailer is going to be much safer than a one horse. I wouldn't be pulling ANY horse with a Jeep, JMO, but I don't know that a two horse would weigh that much more than a single... but I could be wrong of course.

If your doing some research, check out a weight distribution hitch. It may add to the cost of the trailer but you could maybe pull a bit more with it.

My jeep has a 350 small block swapped into it. :p

The more I read about a one horse the more I find it less appealing, it sounds like they have a bad rep for having a lot of tongue weight, so my search has kind of switched to looking for a light weight alum trailer or a stock type trailer.

Aluminum is definitely the way to go when you're looking for a small trailer. Have you tried this website: www.horsetrailerworld.com

We just sold a trailer there and there are tons of trailers for sale. Every shape, size, and color.

I think most of the trailers on there cost about 1000 more than I can spend.

I am getting a little discouraged, a lot of people say that pulling with a jeep is a bad on the tranny and the breaks aren't really ment for it.

I want a trailer so bad!

Well the BF re-encouraged me that the jeep can indeed pull a horse trailer, we would just have to do some upgrades on the breaks, which he made sound super easy, but then again he made the engine swap sound like it would take a weekend when in reality it ended up taking two months.

Really, there is a reason you're hearing it's not good to tow with a Jeep, and there's no way I would... this coming from someone who was in a bad accident that flipped her 3 horse trailer being hauled with an F150...

But years ago I pulled my light (2200 pound) two horse wtih my Jeep Cherokee with one mini in it and it was really hard on the Jeep... and for safety of the horse and you... I just wouldn't! But I am super paranoid about hauling, even before, but especially after, my accident. BTW the accident involved no one but me, tire problem on a freeway with a semi next to me and lost control and went spinning in the middle (between the northbound and southbound lanes) and totaled both the truck and trailer, but somehow my horse managed to only have knick above her eye (mini, probably would've been BAD if full size horse).
