I am a videographer in Portland, Oregon with a love for all things horses. Originally from Minnesota, my childhood was spent on racetracks across the Midwest. I am currently training my dream horse with hopes of excelling at dressage and Parelli. I have a Cairn Terrier, Ellie, and an old cat named Winston. I am fortunate to have a pretty nice boyfriend who understands and supports my love of horses. My blog helps keep a record of my successes and failures and helps friends and family enjoy the journey with me.
I have been trailer shopping for a few months. By that I mean I cruise through Craigslist and Dreamhorse looking for deals or dreaming about owning certain ones. I found one this week that is just across the river in my price range ($4,000 or less:-). It is a two horse slant Triton with a tack room. I have an appointment tomorrow to go check it out. I have heard the arguments for both straight and slant, and I really haven't formulated my own opinion yet. I was just looking for a trailer that seems to work for me. I have people telling me to keep looking and find a three horse, but for my first trailer, I don't mind having it be a bit smaller. I know so many women out in the blog world have much more experience than myself with trailers, so I am just fishing for opinions and thoughts on the Triton. I have heard of the brand, but don't know much about it. The woman has a very expensive eventing horse and she told me she replaced the floor last year before a competition in CA. Is that a good thing or a bad thing? Also, if anyone out there can give me any advice about what to look for and what ask when I go see it, that would really be appreciated. Thanks everyone for your help and input on this...you all are such a great resource and I value your opinions.
