6 ft or 7 ft trailer?
My 3 yr old half arab is 16h. Should I plan to buy a 6ft or 7 ft high trailer?:-|

I would get a 7 ft. My old stock was 6'8 and was borderline for my 15.3 mare. Also you will get a better resale.

The trailer is a 1985 2 horse straight load TB 7ft tall horse trailer. It is a kingston. He mailed me some pics and it looks really good. Tires, floors and lights are good. Barely any rust. 1400.00. I cannot wait!

I would definitely go with the 7 ft. tall trailer, especially if your filly is already 16 hds and only 3 yrs. old. She still has some growing to do!

I actually had a 77 Kingston bp two horse 7 foot and I LOVED it but had to sell due to moving and needed the extra cash.

I am really glad to hear that! Yes, I really feel that this will be the one. I cannot wait to get Ransom used to it. I am going to take him on a short ride just as soon as I get it!

Taller is always better. I have a trailer for sale if you want ;)

Hmm, what kinda trailer do you have for sale? How much and where are you located?
