Featherlite Trailers brings 2015 line of horse trailers to Rolex Kentucky

CRESCO, Iowa (April 23, 2014) – Attendees at this year’s Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event horse show in Lexington, Ky., from Apr. 24-Apr. 27 will get their chance to view some of the new 2015 Featherlite horse trailers. Featherlite is one of many vendors that will be exhibiting as part of the Trade Fair held in conjunction with the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event. 

“In addition to showcasing our 2015 enhancements, several of the trailers we’ll have on display feature a straight load configuration, which Rolex attendees are sure to love,” Justin Queensland, Featherlite national sales manager, said. 

All of the Featherlite trailers feature new standard 2015 features, including: 

    • New Drop-Down Feed Doors – Featherlite’s new standard “Light Flo” drop down feed doors feature a heavy-duty frame and bars that are designed to maximize airflow and light. Lowered handles make operating the windows more convenient, and the hinges have been redesigned to allow the window to lie flatter against the trailer. 
    • New Dressing Room Turf – The 2015 Featherlite horse trailers now have thicker turf in the dressing room. This new turf is more resistant to water, mold and mildew and is held in place with a special state-of-the-art adhesive that is more temperature resistant. 

Among the trailers Featherlite will have on display at the Rolex Kentucky is the Model 9810. This straight load horse trailer has four stalls with slam latch gates with three ramps leading to the horse area to more easily facilitate loading and unloading. A fourth ramp leads to the dressing room, which not only contains the saddle rack and tack, but also a bench that doubles as storage space. The trailer also features white aluminum interior lining and electric fans in both the horse area and dressing room. 

Another trailer Rolex attendees will want to see is the Model 9607 straight load horse trailer. This trailer holds two horses in stalls that include padded bars in front and behind horses. A side ramp gives access to a mid-trailer storage area. Featherlite’s new 12v LED dome lights are also included with this trailer and help make the horse area brighter while using less energy than incandescent dome lights. 

One of the slant load horse trailers Featherlite will have on display is a Model 9409. The slant load configuration showcases the new drop-down feed doors. The trailer also shows off options such as full length exterior wave panels, black side sheets and aluminum wheels. 

The Rolex Kentucky competition is the only annual Four Star Three Day Event held in the western hemisphere. Dressage, cross country and show jumping comprise the competition events. 

Featherlite’s display at Rolex is located in the outdoor exhibition area at Booth 99. For more information on Featherlite’s 2015 line of horse trailers, contact your nearest Featherlite dealer, visit Featherlite online at www.fthr.com or call 1-800-800-1230.
