Tom and Neva Scheve, developers and designers of EquiSpirit Trailers, have found and filled a huge hole in the horse trailer market by completely redesigning and creating an updated version of the one horse trailer.

Until now, one horse owners’ only choice has been to buy a two horse trailer. So they’ve been forced to carry around extra trailer space while having to cram their tack and hay into their trucks or SUVs.

“The benefits are numerous and obvious,” says Tom Scheve, “which is why sales were immediate. A separate tack/grain/hay storage and separate dress area in a four foot shorter trailer means lighter weight, less tow vehicle, better gas mileage, and easier handling.”

In designing the one horse trailer, says Neva, the primary concern was to make the horse area comfortable, light, airy, and roomy, and therefore safe. This was accomplished by making the horse’s entrance nearly four feet wide, with a low angle ramp, and large windows on the side and at the head area.

The Gooseneck model, says Scheve, provides even more benefits. Moving the front dress/tack area to the side and rear, shortens the gooseneck model by six feet over EquiSpirit’s two horse gooseneck dressing room model and makes it four feet shorter than most other two horse goosenecks. The lighter weight from being smaller minus the weight of another horse, allows this model to be pulled with smaller trucks and still be safe.

With the tack space in the rear, the side stall and front area can be devoted entirely to Living Quarters and Camping packages, while keeping the trailer very short. A full LQ with shower and separate toilet can be installed in a total length of only twenty three and one half feet.

“The design will most likely attract other manufacturers into the market,” says Neva Scheve, “but I believe that the attention we pay to detail and the well being of the horse will keep horse owners attracted to EquiSpirit. Safety has always been our number one concern.”

“Tom and Neva Scheve are the designers and developers of the SafeLoad, and EquiSpirit and EquiBreeze lines of trailers located at 403 Neuse Road in Kinston, NC. Corporate offices are located in Southern Pines, N.C. where the Scheves reside. Neva has several horse trailer books on safety, including the nationally recognized text book “The Complete Guide To Buying, Maintaining, and Servicing A Horse Trailer.” For more information about the one horse trailer, visit the following link: http://www.equispirit.com/products/models.htm or visit http://www.equispirit.com.
