Choosing The Best Racehorse Transport Trailer

The Classic Van for transporting racehorses is - well, Classic!Every horse is valuable to its owner, but the financial value of a good racehorse can easily reach seven figures or more.
And considering that there may be a number of investors owning a share of that horse, transportation becomes a much bigger challenge than simply getting four hooves from point A to point B.
That’s why the ROI on a quality racehorse transport trailer is so easy to calculate. And that’s why we recommend the Classic Van.
Perils of Loading and Unloading
A nick, cut or bruise can sideline a racehorse, or even end its career. The Classic Van reduces the chances of accident or injury by providing two easy pull loading ramps that are non-slip, have no sharp edges, are lightweight enough for one person to operate, yet provide a sure, solid footing that is less likely to spook what may be an already nervous horse.
Working In The Dark
You’re not always working under the best lighting conditions, especially when you’re far away from home at an unfamiliar track. The Classic Van solves that problem by providing a generous array of interior and exterior LED lighting.
Using LEDs provides maximum brightness without generating heat and without drawing down an excessive amount of battery power.
Plus LEDs last virtually forever, so you’re unlikely to be caught out in the dark with a vital bulb burned out and no spares on hand.
Coming Along For The Ride
There’s more than racehorses making the trip. So whether you are a commercial racehorse transporter, or you’re hauling your own, you’ll need a racehorse transport trailer with plenty of room for human cargo as well.
The Classic Van really stands out in this department. You’ll appreciate the available storage boxes and an aluminium roof well, combined with standard tack and feed storage all safely wrapped inside heavy duty wall linings mounted to Galvanized side posts with sturdy 3” centers.
Smoothing Out The Bumps
Being on the road is stressful enough for a racehorse; why make it any more so?
The 102” wide Classic Van comes standard with Hendrickson Intrax Air ride suspension to smooth out the worst roads. Flat floors improve footing, and the heavy duty Havco oak walls maintain a comfortable temperature year round.
Plus it’s a low bridge-friendly 12’ feet in height, and the 4’ spread axle means the Classic Van is California legal.
