Question Horse Transport

Was wondering what types of car/ute/truck etc everyone uses, or what everyone thinks is suitable to pull a single horse float. Im currently looking at cars and wanted to know what are the most suitable cars for this kind of thing. Thanks

What ever you get, be sure to check the manufacturers towing specs for the vehicle. DO NOT believe what a sales person will tell you.
The trailer should have a placard showing Gross Vehicle Weight Rating. Be sure your "car" can pull that much. I will guess a single trailer will be about 2000 lbs then add 1000 lbs for horse and another 100 or 200 lbs for tack and feed.
I would suggest no smaller than a V6 engine.
Other factors to think about are: how far will you travel with trailer? How often? Will you be on interstates?
YOu don't want to be the one on the interstate going 45 mph in a 70 mph zone.
