If fetlocks excite you more than foot socks, you probably have a thing for all things equine! Whether youre into dressage, show jumping, polo, pony rides or trail riding away from home, horse trailers are a must for taking your four-legged friends far and wide.
eBay has a wide range of new and used horse trailers and horse floats that are sure to meet your needs. From lightweight single-horse floats on a budget, to the common double-horse configuration and luxurious three-horse, angle load trailers for the serious transporter - weve got it all. Not all horse floats are created equal - fortunately many sellers detail their specifications in their listings, allowing you to compare features and dimensions for your requirements. If youre ever unsure about anything, send the seller a question before you buy.
Because most horse floats are enclosed with a roof, an important consideration for buyers is the height of your horse/s relative to the interior height, in order to ensure their total comfort during transport. Some sellers advertise their floats as suitable for horses of a certain height using the traditional measure of hands, while others use a metric measurement of cm or mm. One hand of horse height works out to be around 10cm.
As with any trailer being towed behind a vehicle, do ensure that the tow vehicle has a sufficient towing capacity/rating for the float. Remember: a float carrying two horses can easily weigh in excess of 2.5 tonnes - the equivalent of a medium sized boat.
