Hybrid Trailer Pros & Cons

EquiBreeze Horse Trailers

Ugh. I just wrote a book and it all was deleted. So anyway, I'm finally about ready to pull the trigger on a horse trailer. I am weary of buying used since people seem to be really deceptive lately and I cannot afford a "normal" new one. There is this hybrid trailer called the equibreeze. It's a normal people front with a dressing room, but the horse part is stock. Other than probably needing plexiglass if I use it in winter, are there any big downsides I'm missing? I like the stock idea since it allow my horse to stand any which way he wants when he's traveling solo. I haven't read any bad feedback about this company. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

They are referred to as Stock/combos and lots of people love them!

I adore the stock combo trailers. Unfortunately, I can't afford one.

If you have a chance to buy one, jump on it. They're great trailers.

I personally like the stock combo trailers. The BO at my place has one made by Cimarron, its a big 4 horse trailer, but can fit 5 horses if they are smaller, its got the dividers turning it into a slant load, and its got the goose neck tack room in the front. I love it, its big and airy, which is great for Southern California. I like having the option of being able to leave a horse free in the trailer, and with it being a stock trailer, its very open lets a lot of light in, and isn't as "scary" as some of the fully enclosed trailers out there. I would say go for it.

I wouldn't worry about the plexiglass. I have always hauled in an open trailer and never had a problem. If it is bitterly cold I'll saddle my horse before I put it in the trailer.

Up to you now. Trailers can get hot.... my horses get a lot warmer in my 4horse slant than they ever did in my stock combo.

My dilemma is that I'm in Connecticut and I do go to shows in winter. Also, what if it were ever a medical emergency and it's 20 degrees out. Murphy's law suggests that's the way it's going to happen, right? Would a stock be appropriate in that case?

Yes, it would be appropriate, or yes I can plan on driving to the hospital in a driving snow storm in the middle of the night on a Sunday?
