Thanks everyone. I was thinking about going along the extension route but now I might have a look at the different trailers when I'm at shows this summer. Hubby seems to prefer the idea of a bigger trailer, and as he's the one doing the driving......

I have a pegasus trailer 13ft day living but especially made without the living, my older fenix flyer rolls up the front ramp and I can carry up to 2 13.2hh ponies in the back, and the padding folds into 2 bunk beds when the ponies are out!
Before this I had a Ifor hb510 which I lifted the carriage in the back and the 13.2hh pony loaded up the front ramp and travelled in the front.

we faced a similar issue, but we ended up with a three horse trailer, which fitted both a hartland four wheeler, and a larger pony, the carriage fitted into the horse section and the pony then stood in the front the weight being evenly distrubuted.
We can recommend a decent trailer dealer if you e-mail us, who also made a fiting for inside the traler when we use to transport a 2 wheeler.

Christine, there were a couple of features on trailers and transport for carriage drivers in In Harness magazine last year. Send me your email address and I'll email you the pages, if you are interested in some alternative solutions?

Thank you both for that, I will take a look. Well done Liz at the London harness horse parade, that's a great result!

See Stephen Pond's website www.take-the-reins.co.uk and look under trailer extensions. There is a picture of a 4 wheel carriage on a special extension to give you an idea. All the details are there too, phone, email addresses etc.

You could put a carriage deck on the front of your trailer. Hillam used to do a kit and might still do so, otherwise almost any agricultural engineer should be able make something up. Don't forget to balance the weight, a 25lt plastic container full of water mounted just behind the trailer wheels on both sides should do. Good luck

At the moment I have an Ifor Williams 505 trailer so I can either transport the ponies or my 4 wheel driving vehicle which is obviously no good as I need both. I'm not quite sure I can afford a wagon so has anyone got any suggestions on a different type of trailer that might do the job.
