Stall Plans & Layouts
The standing stalls are spacious by any standards. The horses pictured here stand just shy of 16 hands each, & weigh approximately 1200 pounds. The floor-to-ceiling "jailbar" head divider allows the horses to see each other, thereby reducing stress, but the close-set vertical bars do not allow actual physical contact. The standing stalls can also be rigged with floor-to-ceiling dividers at all points, thereby furnishing a completely segregated stall suitable for stallions or particularly aggressive horses.
The next step up is a standard box stall, which measures 7' x 7'. The pony pictured here is only 13 hands, but this size stall easily accommodates small to average sized mares with foals at side, or larger single horses to 17 hands. The opening pictured here can be fitted with a full length "jailbar" door; once again allowing the horses to take comfort from each others company without risking any physical contact.
The next step is to a full box, identical in view to the above but measures 10' x 7'. This size is best suited for larger mares with foals, or single horses 18 hands & up. It can also accommodate 2 average sized horses for trips of 6 hours or less.
The stall dividers were custom-built to my own specifications, affording optimal comfort for the horses without compromising safety. The open "jailabr" style also maximizes airflow through the trailer, which is critical any time of year; while the soild bottom sections resist even the most energetic tests of strength!
