         2006 Shadow 2+1 GN w/ DR – Well Equipped and Exterior Shows Almost as New!

   

As we said in the teaser, this extremely clean, indoor-stored 2006 Shadow 723 Pro Series 2+1 just came in for us to show as a private sale. The owner’s horses are retired and the trailer hasn’t been used much in recent years, so it’s time for it to go to a new home.

Body width is 6’9 and body height is 7’6”, so it offers great room even for larger horses. The 23’ floor length includes 19’ for the horses and approximately 4’ for the dressing room. We sold this trailer when new and specified a larger-than-normal box stall. The box is approximately 8.5’.
 

   
 

If you do much trailering without an assistant, a true 2+1 such as this (that is, one with an appropriately large box stall) is a great choice. Lead the first horse in through the side ramp, back him/her into his/her stall and put up the chest bar. Do the same with a second horse. Close the box stall divider and then lead your third horse into the box stall. In a slant load, if you want to unload one of the forward horses, you usually have to unload the rear horses first. With a 2+1, you can load or unload any of the horses independently. There’s a nice spring assist on each ramp and as we indicated in the teaser, these ramps are extra tall at 4.5’ for a more comfortable incline. The ramp mats have a nubby texture that offers very good grip.

Whereas slant loads are typically sized for smaller breeds, with a 2+1, you can carry 3 large horses. A 2+1 is a great in-between size. It’s roomier and more versatile than a small trailer, but is easier to handle than a head-to-head or similar large trailer.

   

Here are some of the things that make this 2+1 so versatile - It has a removable stud panel below the straight stall divider and there’s an easily removable head divider as well. If you want to carry a couple of horses or mares and foals in box stalls, you can do that, too. Just remove the stall divider and post (quick & easy), giving you a rear box stall of about 10.5’ and that larger-than-typical front box of 8.5’.

This is a Shadow Pro Series model, and at the time this one was built, that meant that the walls in the horse area are insulated and lined in white aluminum. The ceiling is lined & insulated for the entire length of the trailer. The lining & insulation contribute to a quiet and comfortable interior. This one has the standard vents over the straight stalls and an additional pair of vents was specified over the box stall. It has plenty of windows for great light and ventilation and the window in the escape door is a large drop feed (it slides open and/or drops down). You can drop that window while leaving the window guard up, offering even more ventilation while keeping your horse from sticking his head out the window. The escape door is a generous 40” wide and there’s a pass door between the horse area and dressing room.

   

Up in the dressing room, there are two adjustable-height saddle racks on a swing out mount and 10 bridle hooks. There’s a lockable door with large window and a couple of large windows in the upper gooseneck area, and that upper area offers plenty of storage.

   

Other nice touches on this Shadow include running boards on both sides for convenient ingress and egress and an aluminum water tank tucked up under the gooseneck. If we recall correctly, it’s a 25 gallon tank and the spigot is located low on the gusset so you don’t waste water while figuring out where to place the bucket. This trailer has an aluminum frame and skin and the floor consists of extruded aluminum planks with integrated I-Beam cross members. In recent years, Shadow has gone to leaf spring suspension, but this one has torsion axles with all-wheel independent suspension, all-wheel electric brakes and 16” Load Range E radial tires (including spare). Running lights are bright, reliable LEDs.

We invite you to stop by and check out this Shadow Pro Series 723. We get inquiries about used 2+1s all the time, but used ones are hard to come by. Extremely well-kept 2+1s are even more rare, so if you’re in the market, stop by and check out this one! Private Sale on display at Traveled Lane. Asking $17,500.
