I just bought a 2 horse bumper pull. I wanted something easy to pull and room for one more horse so I can bring a friend on the trail rides. It may not be anything fancy, but it works for me and sure beats all those years I had to ask to borrow one. One day when I'm able, I would like to upgrade to a 2 horse slant load with dressing room just so it's easier to get my tack/saddles in and out and more roomy. In the meantime, I am grateful for what I have.

a good paint job is like a black stallion thats out in the wild. he sure looks pretty but when it comes down to it, you cant ride him or drive him, some body could get him to that point but its unlikely and few can do it.

I would take a really rough looking trailer, but I found what I need

Its gonna have to be good sized( large enough length wise to fit the two horses and a forecart. and have a 7 foot ceiling... my boys are just so big....

and that is only going to be found in a goose neck. I will not look at a bumper pull
