Sirius Trailers, designed and manufactured near Eindhoven in the Netherlands is the culmination of four generations of trailer building experience.
Fons Bouwhuis and Antwin Vloet, each with 25 years’ experience in the trailer industry lead the development team assisted by three professional riders. The aim; a new trailer concept, which is revolutionary in space, design, convienience and safety – a perfect transport soloution for your horse. These trailers are “the next generation.”
The result is a line of horse trailers that is unlike any other trailers that are available on the market today. To turn words in to actions Sirius offer a five year warranty on their quality products (for conditions, see the Sirius maintenance and warranty booklet).
You can recognise a Sirius trailer by its tough, but timeless design. Spaciousness, safety, versatility, convenience and design are distinguishing features of Sirius products. All Sirius Trailers are very spacious and therefore clearly larger than other trailers available on the market. In addition, there is an (optional) tack room on the right side, which provides your horse with much more room to move.
Due to this spacious design it is much easier for your horse to get loaded into the trailer. Every Sirius Trailer has a door/ramp combination and a weighted back, which makes your trailer much stronger than other brands. When you use the door function, it is much easier to load young horses. Due to the special negative air pressure windows, there is no draught on your horse’s eyes and the exhaust fumes from your car cannot enter the trailer from the front. Every Sirius Trailer has a unique ventilation chassis, giving the trailer the opportunity of a long service life regardless of the conditions.
A horse in the meadow moves his head and neck constantly. This is something the Sirius trailer design has allowed for, can he still do that while he is in the average trailer or truck, often for hours? No; he can’t!
A regular trailer, with an interior height of 230 cm provides insufficient headroom for the horse. He will therefore be forced to keep his head down and, because the roof is so close to his head (very sensitive for a horse), the horse will put his head down even more than he actually needs to. The net interior height/length used by the horse will therefore be 10 to 15 cm less. If, in addition to this, the horse does not have enough length in the trailer (only 100 to 110 cm measured from the shoulder), he will also be forced to bend his head to the inside, due to the sloping front of the trailer. Particularly during long trips, this position may lead to intense cramps, which may result in inferior performance and resistance during loading.
