I had this trailer custom built, but medical bills for my horse force a quick sale - get in on this FAST! Gorgeous trailer, body built by Hawk and customized by Risa of Balanced Ride Trailers. Very rare in America rear facing design with straight load stalls - 11' long and built VERY tall to comfortably house and ride large, medium, or small horses. Lovely little tack locker located in the front with plenty of room for 2-3 saddles/buckets/bridles and necessary gear.... (read more)
The rear ramp is ultra sturdy and becomes a low platform - to load, the horse steps onto the side of the ramp, pivots, and backs in. This might sound strange, but it only took two tries for our horses to become very comfortable loading this way and it is genuinely MUCH safer. One is never trapped in a small confined space with a nervous horse. And, when you arrive at your destination, your horse is ready to walk right out of the trailer - no flying backwards or stressed horse stepping down and panicking. The doors fold back to the wall if you don't wish to use them, and the divider is sturdy but easily removable to open the trailer up to an open box if necessary.
This trailer has only been used two times (life got busy, no fault of the trailer) but the horses ride super quiet in it, no scrambling or weaving like you tend to feel with forward-facing trailers. Rear facing is also much safer in the event of a forced emergency stop - the horse bumps his rear on the sturdy trailer wall instead of falling face-first and injuring himself and possibly flipping the trailer. I love this trailer and hate to part with it, but it needs to go somewhere where someone will use it a ton, enjoy it, and tell others about the benefits of rear-facing trailers. As for me, I will be happy that my horse gets the medical care he needs. Price is totally firm at $8000 - retails for well over $13k new, includes fans, extra windows for ventilation, lights, and lots of luscious padding for happy horses! Clean title in hand and ready to go!
