During long distance trips, an overnight layover is at times, necessary. If a horse is waiting for a connection with another transporter, longer term layovers can be arranged most major city centers.
This 4 horse trailer has an inside height of 7'6 and an inside width of 8'. Each stall is 42" wide with a longer offset then most angle haul trailers. For weanlings, yearlings, large draft horses and mares with foals at side, the trailer converts into (2) 8x8 box stalls. The interior is insulated, rear load ramp and lower panels on each divider for added safety.
Having a smaller capacity trailer, Eastwind can go to locations the large rigs cannot or will not go to. Connections can be made with the large trucks in most major city centers and works well.
Did you know:
Anyone transporting horses for a profit, are considered commercial. Therefore, subject to operating properly and following the structure set out. Some of the requirements are attending the weigh scales, keeping a log book, annual inspections on both truck and trailer, maintaining commercial insurance with ICBC, carrying a cargo insurance policy and having a heavy trailer endorsement on a current BC drivers license. All of these regulations are in place for a reason and I urge people to consider who they are hiring and why, not just the least expensive ride.
