Things to consider when buying a new float

The right float should create a secure and reassuring environment for your horse to travel in and have space for all your gear. It should be easy to use as well as easy to tow. Choosing a float that best meets your needs is a process that combines an understanding of engineering, safety, comfort and usability.

Size and weight – always try to match the size of the float to the size of your horses to provide comfortable travel for them. The stall area should be adjustable in height AND length. Internal height is important especially when carrying big horses. Check the towing limit of your car as well as the permissible load on the tow bar.

Safety – The important bits are to be found under the float: chassis and floor construction, suspension and brakes are much more important than a fancy paint job. Safety for your horses inside the float is vital. Can the chest and rear bars be disconnected without entering the float in case of an emergency?

Ease of handling – Mostly it is ladies who have to hitch the float onto the car and take it off, raise and lower the jockey wheel, open and lift the ramp and do the driving.

Durability and re-sale value – Everyone is aware of rust as a big killer. A chassis that is welded after manufacture can be a big problem as can the steel sheeting where it is riveted to the frame. The floor is another potential problem area.
