Equi-Trek Limited is a family run British company, founded in 1999 with the aim of providing the ultimate in horse transport.

The owners have, for many years, successfully competed in equestrian competitions at the highest level, including winning at major county shows, Horse of the Year Show, Royal International and many international wins on England teams.

The company’s primary aim was to re-design and produce a range of trailers which offer safe, easy loading and comfortable travel for the horse and good facilities for the rider/owner. Due to their unique side-loading trailers and patented designs, Equi-Trek trailers have proved hugely successful and the company has sold thousands worldwide.

The business has grown considerably since its inception in 1999, developing from a small manufacturer of side-loading horse trailers, introducing 3.5 tonne motorised horseboxes in the mid-2000’s and introducing new and larger horseboxes each year, culminating in the 26 tonne Enterprise in 2010, able to carry up to 9 horses in supreme comfort. Equi-Trek has firm roots in the local economy, using small local businesses for skilled labour and sourcing a third of their supplies within the West Yorkshire area.

Equi-Trek won the HSBC International Business of the Year in the Huddersfield Examiner 2010 Business Awards, and the Revell Ward SME of the Year in the Huddersfield Examiner 2009 Business Awards.  On being presented with the Business of the Month Award by Eaton Smith, Equi-Trek Managing Director, Tom Janion, said: “This is an exciting award for Equi-Trek. As a proud, local employer we strive to provide the best value horse transport at the highest quality and recognition of our success is always rewarding.”

The Business of the Month Award is run in association with Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce and Business Link. It is open to firms in Calderdale, Kirklees and Wakefield.
