older two horse straight load trailer

I just wanted to put this out there.As I know many people have trouble with trailers and their horses. My mare is a very trusting horse and LOVES to go for a ride in her trailer. but latetly she hasn't been wanting to get in. I put it off as her being goofy and made her get in anyway. well come to find out the support beam for the front of the floor of the trailer(where the horse stands) was nearly rusted through! it was giving even under my weight! I'm so thankfull that it held the other day when i took her in it. My point being if you have a horse who normally loads fine, then for "no reason" decides not to load. you might want to check out your trailer! Im hoping my trailer is fixable but as it is and 83 model I am not sure.. it has seen a lot of road! well I just had to get that off my chest thanks!

Yuppers, I had my whole trailer floor done just because one board was bad, pulled it. Its always good to do yrly checks on truck and trailers. Id rather pay the fee for a check up than one of my horses fatally injured.

Come on spring!!!!!

oh yes i agree. had it of been a board ida noticed it a whole lot sooner.. as it is I have to get under the trailer to see the place that is nearly rusted through, it's about 2 boards wide and the angle iron that is there flexes.

Yikes, glad you have a smart horse!

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.
