Towing a horse trailer is not something to be taken lightly, but neither should you be scared of trying. This book, now in its third updated edition, explains how to buy and use a trailer safely and within the law, covering all the topics a responsible horse owner needs to know in a clear and concise way, supported by photographs and diagrams.
The book examines all aspects of trailer use and ownership, including choosing a trailer and tow-car, maintenance, safe driving practices and the law. The newcomer’s nightmares of hitching up and reversing are explained in illustrated step-by-step sections to help you to perfect your technique. Safety and the importance of driving with the horse in mind are stressed throughout and there are sections on travelling wear for horses and how to handle difficult loaders.
