We don't trailer much...we usually borrow a 2/4 horse stock trailer and yank it around with our suburban :roll: I keep wanting to buy our own...but...its really easy to just borrow one when Your boss owns a herd of trailers!!!!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Don't feel to bad. When we started out we relied on others for transport. Finally got a little 2 horse bumper pull that we hauled with my '72 Dodge. Wasn't pretty but it got us there. Then we got a little popup slide in camper that was too small for the truck but it was better then sleeping in a tent. We probably looked pretty silly pulling into places with big trailers and fancy trucks. But we didn't care We're still not to fancy and probably never will be.

No Laugh here.... I/We have pulled a stupid heavy car trailer with a Suzuki Samurai (4-wheelin/rock crawler all decked out) to Oklahoma and back a few times with our 98 Jeep Cherokee!! Lol...we didn't have horses yet!

I started off borrowing my buddy's home built 4 horse bumper pull. I then bought a used 3 horse bumper pull. As it rusted I bought an Aluminum 3 horse gooseneck, I now have a 4 horse Gooseneck with a 9' LQ. I also have 5 daughters, 3 still at home, So this last trailer was kinda of a neccessity if I wanted them to continue to camp with me.

This year the housing market is really depressed, So I may have to sell my trailer and start over.

I want Tims dream... Can I have one?

I have a white 4-horse slant kieferbuilt with a large dressing room. (gooseneck) I have heat and A/C and an air mattress for sleeping...

I just bought an 06 crew cab white dually chevy (gas) havent put a hitch in it yet. My husband says it'll be awesome. I've been using my dads f-250 and it hauls really great.

I had a chevy that I used but I sortof drove on 95 at like 75 mph in 4-low... apparently that's bad... we still havent replaced the motor and that was almost 4 years ago........

When I went to buy my trailer, I wanted lots and lots of ROOM (i'm much more claustrophobic than my horses, and because of my small stature, I was always elected to lead the horse into the trailer, maneuver under the bar, and climb out of the tiny, tiny, tiny escape door No fun)

So here's what I bought:




It is a great hauling trailer - it rides very balanced. It has windows and doors everywhere - and everything is moveable - it also has a ramp, which the old guys just love - and I love it too!

It's a 2000 Shoop 2H Deluxe. IMO, Shoop trailers give plenty of room for the horses (as well as any claustrophobic owners!) It has two full size doors - one on each side - and a tack bench in the front (enough to store misc. Tack or an english saddle)

PS, we pull it with a 1500 [sub]burban
