We have a Silverado 1500, it'll pull fine. But you're the 2nd person to say only haul one horse comfortably. I don't want to ride alone ;) Like I mentioned, mine are 14.2 and 14.3- any idea if that works?

We will definitely check floor, undercarriage, tires. Thank goodness I do have extra tires from our car trailer and our ATV trailer. I would think their similar tires...

I bought my Lear for one 14.1 h horse. It didn't come with a divider and I never put one in. Of course, he could completely turn around in the trailer and often did!

Trailer tires aren't anything special. Just make sure they're the correct size for the vehicle and you're good to go.

I have a 1992 Adams now. NICE trailer, and the woman who owned it before me is a friend and took very good care of it. When she sold it to me several months ago, she'd just had the lights rewired and the bearings greased and repacked. The tires are in good shape, too.

The horse for whom I'd bought the Lear passed on 4 years ago, and I needed a bigger trailer for my TB. He COULD be hauled in it, but it was a tight fit and he was miserable. So JJ got a bigger trailer to fit his bigger TB self.

As long as the two horses will fit without being uncomfortable, there's no reason you can't take two at a time.

But that's exactly what I need to know :(

I'd hate to buy it and then it doesnt fit my two. Then its just like burning money. How wide should it be to "comfortably" fit both?

You have to remember that the actual length of the trailer is NOT the inside stall length.

You need to determine how long and wide the stalls are before you'll know whether or not you can haul two horses comfortably.

The height doesn't concern me so much as the length and width. The hay mangers, storage compartments, and escape door are going to take up anywhere from 2 to 4 feet of the interior room.

Plus, the divider may be thin, but you have to take that as well as the padded bumpers into consideration when you look at the width, since those will take inches off the space you have to put the horses.

I'd rather know the actual length and width of the interior, than the outside. The outside only comes into play concerning the tow vehicle.

That's only 5 feet, which means your horses would have less than 2.5 feet each, width wise.

Strange, since I thought 2-horse exterior trailer widths were standard at 7 feet, not including the fenders.
