Dog Trailer Hire

Trailer hire is very popular amongst people who are interested in horses and horse riding events, such as hunts, to name but a few.  These people will require trailers to transport their horses, generally livestock trailers or horse boxes, which will need to be very safe and comfortable for the horse.  They may need domestic trailers to store equipment such as horse riding equipment, lunch, seating areas etc.  And they will need dog trailers to transport the dogs that are vital for a successful hunt.  These also need to be of great comfort, as well as offering safety of course.  Often, dog trailers can be attached to the back of a bicycle, making them particularly suitable for camping holidays.
