What is the largest truck you can afford?
Pulling with a small vehicle is possible but expect more maintenance cost as it will have smaller brakes, transmission etc...
Seriously, I think you might need to look at the weight of the trailer, plus gear and horses, then pick a vehicle with at least that GVWR...
