How to Pick the Right Horse Trailer for Your Needs

If you have a horse, you know how important it is to find the right horse trailer to fit your needs. That’s why just looking for horse trailers for sale isn’t enough; you can’t simply let price guide your decisions.  Instead, you have to factor in some other considerations.

Below are a few tips to keep in mind as you’re looking at horse trailers for purchase this spring or summer:

#1:  Choose a trailer in which your horse will comfortably fit. Depending on the size of your steed or mare, you may want a wider or shorter model. Generally speaking, your horse shouldn’t need to move around too much, but shouldn’t be cramped, either.

#2:  Pick a horse trailer that offers lighting.  When you are loading or unloading your horse in darkness or semi-darkness, this will come in handy for both you and your four-legged companion!

#3:  Make sure all the wheels have brakes. This will make emergency stopping (and regular breaking) easier on both the horse and the trailer.

#4:  Pick a model that will make getting in and out easy for your horse.  Some horses do not like to have to “step up” or “step down” (especially backwards).  In this case, you’ll want to make sure you either have a ramp or can offer them a “step up” option.

Just as every horse is unique, every horse trailer is designed to fit the owner’s budget, requirements and desires.  It’s best to see them in person, which is why we recommend visiting a location such as Reinhart Trailer Sales.
