In this section you’ll find information and advice on the types and makes of horse trailer on the market. From British favourites such as Ifor Williams, Bateson and Rice to the more recent European additions to the market like Brockmann, Cheval Liberté, and Equitrek– and many, many more - here you’ll be able to compare and contrast the different brands and models of horse trailer available to help you find your perfect match
But, before you decide which horse trailer is best for you, there are a few things you’ll need to consider:
- The number of horses you’ll be travelling and their size (height and weight) – small ponies will need lower breast and breaching bars than large horses so, if you’re travelling a diverse range of horses, you’ll need a horse trailer with a height-adjustable bars. See horse trailer types
- Travelling configuration - Forwards, backwards or diagonally; there are trailer configurations to suit all preferences. See travelling configurations
- Your towing vehicle – if you already have a vehicle you’ll need to make sure it is capable of towing the maximum leaden weight of the horse trailer you choose (horse trailer weight + the heaviest combination of horses you’ll travel) plus the weight of car passengers and equipment – for more information on towing weight laws, click here.
