trailer manufacturers now offer a "warmblood" model in their lineup.
Our company was the first to offer a trailer specifically for really large horses
in 1988 (EquiSport) and it seems as though many companies have followed suit.
However, most manufacturers are still unsure of what they are offering and why,
except that they know a warmblood trailer needs to be larger. So they make it
bigger and taller, (not necessarily stronger) and move some things around, and
add twenty-five-hundred dollars to the price. Please look at our XL and XXL options.
If your horse
is 16.3 hands or over and not really wide, you might consider
the XL. The XL option gives 2" to the height (7'8" total
height) and one foot to the horse area (7' in the stall and 4'
in the head area). Adds
approximately 250 lbs. to weight of trailer. This option
may also be considered if your horse is a bit shorter than 16.3,
but is longer than average.
$1,095 to the trailer price for the XL Option.
We add one foot to horse area
(7'6" in the stall and 3'6" in the head area ) and make the interior width 6'8" wide (with
no wheel wells) and make it 7'8" tall (square roof), and add extra strength
for the extra bulk. Now the trailer will effectively be comfortable for horses
over 17½ hands that are also wider and heavier. Adds approximately 450
lbs. to weight of trailer. The price for this option is about 1/3 the price of
to the trailer price for the XXL option.
