EXPERIENCE MEETS INNOVATION. As a company founded by many of the GREAT leaders in the horse trailer industry, SMC Trailers is not your typical “new company.” Our team has over 200 years of combined experience, and this experience shows up in each and every trailer manufactured by us!

Relying on this experience, our goal was to design a horse trailer that was as tough as the high-end models, but at a production setting price. And boy did we exceed that goal! Our engineers plan ahead for every beam, brace, and screw BEFORE we building anything. While many other manufactures build a horse trailer at one facility and then send the trailer to a second company to build the “conversion” or living quarters area (which is inefficient, timely, and more expensive), SMC builds every trailer shell and living quarters at the same facility, right here in Bristol, Indiana! This process has created a very well thought-out, tough, quality horse trailer at an extremely affordable price.

We’ve truly found a way to use yesterday’s experience to build tomorrow’s horse trailer – contact your SMC dealer today!
