So we have an extremely old, dilapidated 2 horse straight load trailer. It needs a total makeover. My brother is sort of a jack of all trades and can completely remodel for around $1000. It is currently 6ft tall and 5ft wide. The first problem is that I recently purchased a new mare who is 16.2HH. I feel that I need the trailer to be taller, maybe 6 1/2 or even 7 ft tall. My brother can do this, but it will cost me probably around $500 extra. This brings me to my second problem, is 5ft wide enough for her and my stout 15HH mare to both ride comfortably?
I would much rather purchase a new 2H slant load, but want to be economical too. If I can spend half the $$ and make this trailer work then I would rather save $ in this economy.
