Have you noticed? There are a lot of stock trailers trying to pass for horse trailers that are falling far short. Yet the open side concept provides openness and good air flow that can greatly benefit your horses, especially in hot climates. The EquiBreeze line of trailers is what we call “open air” horse trailers because it transcends what has been known as stock combos, taking affordable, safe horse trailers to a new level.
From concept to finished product, the EquiBreeze was designed to be an affordable, comfortable, safe, easy to use horse trailer made with the same dedication to safety that is found in EquiSpirit. “Our goal from the beginning was to take advantage of the openness and good ventilation that are inherent in stock trailers,” says Tom Scheve, designer. “But it had to be safe, durable, and affordable.”
If you’ve been looking at used trailers because the design and safety features you want and need on a new horse trailer don’t fit your budget, EquiBreeze is the answer.
SPECIAL DESIGN FEATURES
The two horse Standard L Tag-along gives horses over ten feet of stall length with 7’6” height to handle horses up to 17 hands. The head area opens up into the V nose (since there is no dressing room) to give horses up to 5 feet of head room. If your horses are larger than 17 hands, check out the XL and XXL options
Side Walls: Tall sides (two slats up high) so your horse can’t get a leg out the slat.
Ramp: 54” tall so your horse can’t get a leg over the top. Low angle(not steep) so horses can easily step into the trailer. Spring loaded, easy to lift, so it’s easy on your back. Durable, with no plywood to rot over the years.
Butt/Breast Bars: Padded to protect chest and butt so that the horses can use them to help keep their balance. Designed to easily release if a horse gets over it and is straddled.
Padding: Side wall padding, center divider padding, butt/breast bars padding, upper side walls padding to protect horses from lacerations and rubbing.
Feed bags: Large square feed bags so your horses can eat naturally as they do in the field. They can also stretch their necks over the top of them and cough out hay or dust if needed.
Interior Tie Rings: Lay flat when not in use – can’t stick a horse in the eye or head.
Dividers/Posts: Center divider with shoulder divider keeps horses from trying to turn their necks and heads to look back and get stuck on the center post. Solid head divider to keep horses from seeing each other’s hay. Easy to remove front post so that you can remove all dividers and bars in a hurry. This also allows you to use the trailer for towing tractors, hay, furniture, etc.
Floor: Pressure treated pine supported by galvanized steel cross members (Gator Shield) every 16 inches to give floor maximum strength and support. You don’t need to be worrying about your horses falling through it.
Door Latches: Large outside safety horse door latches on all horse doors to insure horses can’t kick them open nor can they pop open.
