|Current trailer...not totally level here sinec I hadnt gotten a drop hitch yet.|
Interestingly enough, she doesnt do it AT ALL in my friends trailer...Its really wide and roomy so I think Tillie can spread out more to balance.
She does do it a bit in Emma's particularly after being stopped at a light for a while, but not as bad as she does in mine.
So...after talking it over with Emma and how happy she was with where she got hers, I got to thinking- well crap, I can afford that!
So I guess I am not sure if my reasoning for a new one is truly valid...AND I need opinions of which route to go.
- 2-Horse straight (extra wide) -Price $$$
- 2-horse straight- Price $$
- 2-Horse slant - Price $
- 2-Horse slant - Price $$
#1 is the most expensive and I would likely wait to put more money down on it...Its a trailer I am used to seeing so I like it, but after viewing others just not sure that additional money for it is reallllly needed for my purposes. It does fully enclose which is nice, but rarely do we ever do that unless its really raining or really cold.
#2 and #4 are comparable price wise...I just am not sure if #2 is really wide enough to solve the issue of scrambling. BUT I think it may be ok, just dont want to purchase it only to have the same issue. Both can fully enclose, one is just straight load vs slant.
#3 is the least expensive and my only dislike is that it isnt fully able to be closed up from the elements if needed.
So really my conversation point is more or less slant load or straight load? I really want to go see them all in person...but for now just still window shopping until I have more questions answered and waiting to make sure winter lessons dont drop off TOO much.
I have read slant loads are good for horses like Tillie that scramble...but I know can be a bit of a pain when showing with more then one horse. I have always had straight loads so a bit hesitant to make the jump.
