Horse Trailer Types

There are countless types of horse trailers.
These photos have captions to express any thoughts I have on the picture. The idea here is for YOU to get ideas, so grab a cup of coffee, darken the room, grab a pen and paper to write notes, and sit back and enjoy. I have more shots and I’ll add them later as I have time.

Click on any picture to see it in full size with the captions. Please enjoy and add any questions or comments below.

I don’t have very many pictures here but don’t let that disappoint you. Why?? Because in a former live before I became a veterinarian, I drove semi trucks (“18-wheelers”) that hauled up to 15 horses all over this country.

I was a driver for a commercial horse transport out of New York and drove a lot before and during my days at Cornell. I am still a passionate truck driver with 499,000 miles on my 8 year old GMC pick up at the moment of this writing. I can drive anything – forwards or backwards – and park it on a dime. Automatic, 13 speed, 18 speed, and even a two stick shift 10 speed Mack truck.

I can drive it with you in the back of the trailer with your horse and you won’t feel a turn or a stop.

So I could take pictures all day, but I would rather talk about how to drive and teach you how to do this correctly. From taking turns to correct tire pressure in a dually, if you are interested in this subject, just ask in the reply and I will dig in and write about it.

Discussion to follow. If you want me to move this up on the schedule, let me know.
