When I was looking, they had a 3 horse that I liked, but I only wanted a 2 horse so I had to order it. When we picked it up we were late due to road construction, so we just kind of grabbed it and took off. The day I picked it up the dr told me "no riding" so I just didn't check things out like I probably should have. The dealer did tell me that he use to handle a brand that a woman bought and her horse cut it's leg so bad she had to put it down ... so I know it happens. Guess I just trusted him not to sell me something that could hurt my horse.

Get phone numbers of stables near you, or within whatever you would be willing to drive, and call them and ask about whether they know of trailers for sale or not.

Or call some of the trailer places as most of them have used trailers on lot.
