Sooner Trailers Partners with Lazy E Arena as Official Horse Trailer Sooner Trailers announced it is now the official horse trailer of the Lazy E Arena, located southeast of Guthrie, Oklahoma and about 30 miles northeast of Oklahoma City. Lazy E Arena has a rich history in rodeo and hosts over 40 events each year. In addition to being a corporate partner and official horse trailer of the Lazy E Arena, Sooner will also support all Lazy E Arena produced events and initiatives including the Cinch Timed Event Championship as well as the JR. Ironman Championship, held in conjunction with the CTEC. Sooner, a leading horse and livestock trailer manufacturer, is part of the family of brands offered by Universal Trailer Corporation.
