Q: For someone buying a horse truck, what advice can you give them?
A: No matter what, people should look at the company selling. Stephex has a 25-year history of safety; the company should be established and reputable. They should look at a company who knows about horses and cares about them, that’s the point. Check the materials used, you do not want plywood on a floor in the horse area. Check the partitions, the padding, the ventilation. Check the service history and the engine. Try the ramp yourself and test the cameras, make sure it all works. Go inside where the horse will stand and make sure you can move the partitions easily, make sure there is no obvious damage, you can always get a mechanic to come and look to be certain.
