If Safety Is Your #1 Concern...
you'll Choose EquiSpirit! Other horse trailer companies may talk about safety, but EquiSpirit Trailer Company delivers from start to finish.
In 1983, company founders Neva and Tom Scheve decided that many improvements needed to be made in the design and construction of horse trailers, and they set out to make them. As a long time horsewoman, Neva realized that transport could be stressful for the horse and dangerous for the owner.
Safety doesn't only mean safe construction, but also includes a design that creates a healthy and stress free environment for the horse, while protecting the human partner as well.
For almost 30 years, the Scheves have dedicated themselves to promoting horse trailer safety for the benefit of all horses and the owners who love them. The EquiSpirit Horse Trailer is the result.
Neva writes national articles on horse trailer safety, does nationwide safety clinics, and has written three books on horse trailer safety, including The Complete Guide To Buying, Maintaining, and Servicing A Horse Trailer.
"It doesn't stop there," says Tom Scheve, husband . "The unique staff at EquiSpirit assists customers directly, taking them through the entire process of safe towing. We love our horses; we suspect that you love yours too."Tom also writes national horse trailer safety articles, assists with trailer safety clinics and is owner and designer, along with Neva, of EquiSpirit trailers.

EquiSpirit's Lifetime Support
"When you invest into an EquiSpirit; EquiSpirit invests in you"
When you buy an EquiSpirit horse trailer, you are buying it directly from the company, not from a dealer. Buying a horse trailer direct from the company instead of indirectly through a horse trailer dealer (middleman), makes a huge difference when it comes to customer commitment. Since horse trailer dealers indirectly represent the lines they carry, not only do their selling motives vary, their interests in making sure you're safe and happy with a particular line are not often a priority during and after the sale.
We've eliminated the middleman (dealers)
All EquiSpirit's sales, warranty, and after-the-sale service is done directly by the EquiSpirit company Horse Trailer companies may come and go over time, but we'll always be here. Being happy with your EquiSpirit horse trailer is imperative to our wellbeing as well as yours.

EquiSpirit Horse Trailer Options List
110 Volt Electrical System
If you're planning on spending lots of time in your dress area, or plan on camping for periods of time, this system allows you to plug an RV type shore cord into a nearby outside electrical outlet which brings 110 volt power into two interior electrical outlets and an electric light inside your dressing area. Great for fans, lights, radios, small refrigerators.
Extra supports and wiring for future installation of RV type rooftop air conditioning.
If air conditioning is in your future, this option will have wiring and supports pre-installed into the roof and fiberglass so that AC can be easily dropped in. You will also need a breaker box electrical system installed in your trailer to be able to plug into an outside electric outlet, which can also be done now. (see 110 Electric Box Option on Price & Options form). Before choosing this, remember that you will need 20 to 30 amps to run an air conditioner, and most electric outlets are not able to supply this. If you plan to use a generator, be sure it has the right amperage as well.
Suggestion: This space fits the optional Luma dome vent if you'd like to have some ventilation until you're ready for AC. The vent can be removed and the AC dropped in.
Retractable scissors - single person operation.The awning is usually installed on the ditch-side (passenger side) of the trailer where the dressing room door is usually located and is used for shade when none is available. Also useful for waiting out the rain. It is priced per 2-foot increments with a minimum size of 8 feet.
Deep cell 12-volt wired to charge from truck. This deep cell battery holds a charge for long time to power your interior lights, oscillating fans, and load lights, without being plugged into your truck. It is wired so that your tow vehicle will trickle charge it when driving.
Used primarily in dressing room to store and carry blankets.
Box Stall Conversion
With doors, brackets, and post.
Suggestion: These two removable doors form a barrier to separate the rear stall area from the forward area, thus forming a rear box stall (when the removable dividers and butt bars are taken out) and a separate forward area for tack or horses. Two doors are often installed on a separate center post 10' from the rear to form a rear box stall after the dividers are removed and a full width butt bar is added. And additional post and doors can be added forward (10' from the bulkhead wall) which will form a rear, middle, and front box stall.
If the standard six hooks are not enough, most order an extra set (six). However, you can add as many as the space can handle comfortably and safely. They are normally priced and sold in sets of six, but can be split for special needs and spacing. Let us help with the placement.
The extra brush tray gives you additional storage space (one is standard) for those tall bottles (such as fly spray), and also for combs, brushes, hoof picks, etc.
Butt Bar - Full Width
Suggestion: If you use the box stall conversion or remove the dividers, this bar replaces the regular butt bars and keeps the horses from exiting the rear of the trailer when the rear doors/ramp is opened. It can also be used if you move the swinging divider over for one horse and remove the standard butt bars.
Butt & Breast Bars - Adjustable Both Stalls
Adjustable in two positions to match different size horses.
Suggestion: You should choose L, XL, or XXL model of trailer to fit your size horses, but if you have a smaller horse such as 14.2 hands and under, the butt and breast bar can be adjusted to help accommodate their size.
Camper Door with Screen
Our 30" dressing room door comes with a standard 20"x24" screen window. If you're planning on spending a lot of time in the dressing area, the RV door can stay open while the screen door can stay closed letting more fresh air in without the insects. Also great for camping, weekender, and living quarter packages.
Cargo Hooks & Brackets
Three brackets with multiple tie locations for securing hay and tack. A popular EquiSpirit horse friendly design feature installed at both ends and middle on lower portion of bulkhead wall. These brackets let you secure hay and other items with bungee cords or ties, adding more safe storage space to the horse head area of the trailer.
Center Divider - Lower Steel or Rubber
Removable lower steel or rubber divider pinned in place. We prefer that the space below the center divider not be restricted so that horses have more sideways leg room to better balance. However, this divider, which is steel or rubber and fixed in place, is sometimes used for stallions or a kicking horse to not allow them to harm the other horse. The divider is affixed to the top of the center divider, and to the rear and center posts.
Out of the way bar utilized space near the front of the gooseneck area to hang clothes.
Diamond Plate Gravel Guard
Dome Light for Interior
The standard interior dome light, located directly over the dressing room door and the ditch side horse door, provide very good lighting. However, if you spend a lot of time working in your trailer at night, extra dome lights can be added. Placement is usually up in the gooseneck nose and/or over the road side door, and sometimes placed near the roof line in the rear of the trailer. Suggest adding optional remote switch.
Fan for Horse Area
12-volt, 2-speed with swivel base for horse area, priced each.
Suggestion: For extremely hot areas, or if you get stuck in traffic on a hot day, these fans, when placed high up in the corner(s) of the bulkhead wall, are very effective in ventilating the horse head area. With an optional remote switch placed outside, you would have quick, easy access to getting them turned on quickly.
Gate - drop down gate for gooseneck
This small 6" tall gate is located on the wall just below the gooseneck and flips up to form a barrier that will keep items from sliding out of the GN onto the floor.
Tubular steel replaces solid steel head divider. Suggestion: This head divider with tubular bars (instead of being solid) allows air to circulate through the head divider to provide more overall air circulation in the head area. It is recommended for use in hot areas of the country.
2-Speed single stand gooseneck jack to replace standard 1 speed jack. This jack can be switched into an "easier to crank" gear when needed for those with back or strength problems.
Jack - Hydraulic
Includes battery and battery box.
55-watt halogen load light with outside remote switch. Even though good lighting exists on the inside of your trailer, this light provides plenty of additional outside light over the ramp. This option can be very helpful if you're doing a lot of night time loading and unloading. (Load Lights and Running Lights shown below.)
Rear ramp with upper storm doors
Replaces ramp over full height doors with windows.
Suggestion: If you are used to having a ramp with upper storm doors or are in a very hot area and like to have the option of opening the upper rear doors for extra ventilation, you can have this 3-piece configuration in replacement of our standard Full Height Doors with Ramp Behind. Note: Windows/slats in storm doors are optional.
This switch is specially wired to turn off some or all, of the interior lights at one location - very helpful if you'd like to turn all your trailer lights off in one place.
Suggestion: Since interior dome light switches are on the light itself (which can be hard to reach) a remote switch placed outside makes the light switch more accessible.
Suggestion: An outside remote switch for the optional horse area fans can make it more accessible - especially helpful if you get stuck in traffic on a hot day and need to turn them on quickly.
ROOF VENT - DUAL OPENING
Since two dual opening (opens front and back) vents are standard (one over each horse’s head), extra vents are not normally needed. But for extremely hot areas, additional vents can be added to roof over horse's body.
ROOF VENT - LUMA DOME WITH FAN
This square RV crank-open vent with fan is normally put into the dress area to provide extra ventilation, if a lot of time is spent in the dressing room on hot days or if sleeping in the gooseneck. It works through the truck battery when trailer is hooked to truck, or through the optional deep cell battery.
Although we do not recommend this as a replacement for wood floors, (click here to read why), we do offer it as an option on our trailers.
RUNNING BOARDS & RUNNING STEP
RV GRAB HANDLE
Located on the side of the dressing room or horse area doors, allows you to hold onto for balance as you step up into the trailer.
Saddle racks are not just a place to put your expensive saddle. EquiSpirit’s saddle racks are designed so that the channel on a dressage or hunter jumper saddle will sit correctly, allowing the flaps and lining to hang down in the right position instead of spreading the flaps apart while transporting them. For western saddles, the more durable molded saddle racks are available.
Storage Bin / Step - GOOSNECK
Suggestion: This storage trunk and combination carpeted seat is installed against the jack sheet wall and runs the full width of the trailer. It also provides an easy step up into the gooseneck area. This storage bin/seat takes up 1' of depth in the standard 4 feet length of floor space. Optional footage (at least one foot of length) is often added to the dressing room to better accommodate this addition without using up floor space.
Tie Rings - Exterior
Tie Rings - Interior
We provide three "lay flat" (when not in use) standard tie rings per horse. Additionalones are available if you prefer an alternate location to tie your horse or for securing items in other areas of the trailer.
Tack Trunk Storage in Nose of Bumper Pull Modles
Water Tank - 30 gallon
outside, under gooseneck on jack sheet wall.
Suggestion: Horses often get used to drinking their own water, and may not drink away from the barn. And if they do drink "foreign" water, it could cause problems to their digestive system. Plenty of water also becomes invaluable for injuries such as scrapes, deep lacerations, or just an overheated horse.
