  1. Horse Trailers
    Hi, I just recently purchased a horse trailer and I noticed it had very little reflective tape on it. It has red and white tape at the bottom but I just don't feel like that's enough. I really want the best quality stuff and preferably reflective that's geared toward or designed for horse...

    Sorry if this has already been asked. Do you guys keep your trailer out on its own all year round? Mine aren't the prettiest thing in the world but seems to be common practice in my neck of the woods. I would think it would be best to have them under a carport or something... What do you think?

    Hello Horse Forum, This is my first post and I came here looking for answers I have been unable to find. I am a relatively inexperienced horse owner, and just recently experienced/induced one of the biggest fears I have related to keeping and riding horses. I was en route to have my first...

    A few years ago I acquired a 2 horse bumper pull slant Circle J Arrow trailer and love it. I remember having to get a different ball as it took a bigger ball than my OLD 4 horse stock trailer which takes a 2 inch ball. Over the winter, the ball for the Circle J disappeared. I got a 2 5/16 but it...

    Hi all, Hoping for any tips/advice/experiences you have surrounding hauling horses long distances. In a couple months my boy will be travelling down south, as our weather takes a turn and it becomes 85% + humidity 24/7 with high temps, making it very hard to be a horse without all sorts of...

    I am trying to find a great horse transporter to trailer my horse from Southern California to South-eastern Idaho. (You can skip the nect paragraph if you do not want to read about the horrid experience I had with another transporter) We had found a different transporter with lovely reviews...

    Hi! New user here. My wife travels in a truck with poor front wheel alignment. It's biggish truck with a Cummins PowerStroke diesel dually, hauling a gooseneck three (five?) horse trailer with living quarters. I've driven the truck without the trailer attached and it pulls really hard to the...

    I'm shopping for a new trailer! I've narrowed it down to two I'm considering. One is a gooseneck 2004 s and h three horse with a living quarters and one is a gooseneck 2006 shadow trailer with a living quarters. Does anyone have any experience with these brands or have any reviews? Thanks!

    Hi everyone I'm thinking of buying my first horse float ever. I don't know if I should just buy a cheaper 2nd hand one, or should I save up and get a new one? I've seen this really cheap one that's $2,500 (australian dollars), and apparently all it needs is its brakes fixed. Does anyone know...

    I recently traded in (didn't want to, had some tranny issues) my 2014 F150 4x4 with the 3.5L ecoboost engine (great truck), and walked away with a 2016 F150 4x4 with the 2.7L ecoboost. It's rated to haul 7,600 pounds. My 3 horse trailer (gooseneck) is 4,400 pounds. I typically haul no more than...
  11. Horse Tack and Equipment
    So far we've looked at a used featherlite, because I've heard they're nice and we definitely want an aluminum slant-load with a tack/dressing room. I've never really paid attention to other people's trailers 'cuz it's not the rig that makes the rider :wink: but we want something that's going to...

    Hey ya'll, I am brand new to horses. My wife is getting back into it after decades away, and she never did any towing. She is buying a horse, and at first I was supporting her, but I'm getting into it now, too. I've been doing some reading on tow vehicles, and I understand I'm doing this in...

    I am needing new clearance lights and I have narrowed it down to two options. I do not know much about lights but these are the right size and they seem bright. Which one would be best for my trailer. I have a 10 ft 2 horse straight load. first option: Red LED 4" Truck Trailer RV CLEARANCE...

    I am looking at buying a 1995 3 horse Logan slant load bumper pull and I was wondering if this would be a good trailer? I do not have much money to buy a trailer now because I am a full time student but my other trailer has just, well it pooped out on me, but anyways I was wondering if anyone...

    I have a 2014 RAM 1500 4x4 Quad Cab with the 5.8 Hemi engine. The info is a towing capacity of 10,800 lbs, although I realize that is a marketing number. I would be towing one horse, maximum of 2. I'd be mostly towing within 600 miles of North Texas. The option to go much farther safely would...

    Now I know I can read online in a few minutes how to prep a horse to load into a trailer according to the experts. I know I've read about it before. However, since we don't yet have a trailer (no reason to as we have property), I've never studied the techniques in depth. I have a 6 yr old...
  19. Horse Trailers
    I'm not sure if there is another word for them, but on Frank DiBella's website they are referred to as "horse vans". I am completely in love with the idea, I feel as though they'd be much easier to navigate than the bumper-pulls I'm used to. However, I've tried to contact them three times over...

    Hi! So unfortunately, we recently had to take my horse the hospital after he started colicing really badly (unfortunately his large intestine was twisted and he had to be put down). The walls of the trailer are now covered in his hair, sweat, and blood. We are going to pick up my new horse on...
