I do believe the back door/ramp is only a partial - the upper half is actually the rolled canvas in the first pic rolled down and attached. That would typically offer pretty sufficient airflow, or you could even leave it open while hauling to really get good circulation.

Usually angle load or gooseneck floats have side windows. I've seen standard 2 horse floats like HorseRLife's with the windows at the front that open. Some have whirybird air vents on the top.

Your float looks really nice :) Sparkly and new

wow that's a great price for a new float.

Now that I think about it, it does seem weird that we call floats 'floats' haha.
When ever I think of a trailer though I think of a trailer haha (I really do fail at explaining things) the things you put wood in, or camping stuff, it ataches to your car and can be all sorts of sizes.

Horse box reminds me of stalls, but I do wonder where float came from

Yeah for me a 'trailer' is something you take all your garden trimmings and old crap to the dump in. A float is how you transport horses.

well, that's why you specify "Horse" trailer. ;)~

"float" is something a boat does. Well, hopefully! Haha

There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky
