Sirius Trailers BV (Holland) was created from four generations of experience in the development and production of quality horse trailers. Sirius Trailers are manufactured in North America by SunLite Trailers Inc.
Sirius Trailers BV in Holland, was created from four generations of experience in the development and production of horse trailers and trailers in the broadest sense of the word. The Sirius development team consists of professional riders, Fons Bouwhuis, and Antwin Vloet in Holland, and Peter Jensen, Sven Jensen and Clarence Fehr in Canada, who have 25 years of experience in the trailer industry. This team has come up with a new trailer concept, which is revolutionary in space, design, convenience and safety: the perfect transport solution for your horse. The slogan “the next generation” certainly applies to these trailers.
The result is a line of horse trailers that is unlike any other trailers that are available on the market today. All Sirius trailers are now designed in Canada and the Netherlands by our professional teams and manufactured in Europe and Canada.
We offer no less than five years of warranty on our quality products.
You can recognize a Sirius trailer by its tough, and streamlined modern design. The Sirius Trailers line was created after taking a close look at the SUV sector.
Spaciousness, safety, versatility, convenience and design are distinguishing features of our 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 load 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 so-called ventilation chassis.
Your horse as focus point
What does your horse experience during the transport/stay in a horse trailer? That is the focus point of the design of a Sirius horse trailer. A horse is a flight animal by nature. That is something we need to take into consideration.
A horse in the meadow moves his head and neck constantly. Can he still do that while he is in the average trailer or truck, often for hours? No; he can’t! The head of a horse with an average withers height of 168 cm can reach a height of 245-255 cm, with both front legs on the ground. From the shoulder, the horse needs a space of about 90 cm at the front.
A regular trailer, with an interior height of 230 cm / 90.5" 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 / 2 - 3" less. If, in addition to this, the horse does not have enough length in the trailer (only 100 to 110 cm / 39 - 43" 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.
There is no such thing as a trailer that is too big for a horse; however, there are many that are too small!
The Sirius trailers have an interior height starting at 245 cm / 96.5" and an interior length of 340/345/360/490 cm / 134" X 136" X 193". With these dimensions, you horse will be able to comfortably stand in the trailer, even for a longer period.
When purchasing a trailer, ask yourself: who am I buying this trailer for; myself or my horse?
Choose Spaciousness, Quality, Comfort, and Safety.
