Canvas top stock trailer
Anyone used one to haul horses? The good? the bad? I am looking at buying a 16 foot one tomorrow so let me know what you think!

Know a guy who hauled roping horses all over in one. Worked fine for him.

Awesome success stories always good to hear!

We' ve used one multiple times, it actually helped "cure" our incredibly hard loader who had had a traumatic experience. I've found all the horses are more than happy to hop in. Not the prettiest things, but they work!

I see alot of folks around here haul their horses in those.

Everything still sounding good, only downfall I have found is like previously stated they are ugly.

They are NOT ugly, they are "ranchy"! Tee he...
I love them, especially the WW bar tops. They are about as tough as a trailer as you can buy.

We haul in one. Saddle the horses up. Load em up. And your ready to go. Our guys have no problems.
The only bad is, they are kinda noisy when they first step in. Atleast ours is.

I have never seen these until this post, but this may be exactly what I am looking for! I have such a hard time finding a trailer that I can haul my 19hh guy in, he is ALWAYS banging his head, even with a bumper. This might work!

I guess I haven't seen one! I don't see why it would be bad, it's not like your horses are going to be any safer with a lid if the trailer tips/flips (god forbid).
