Imagine floating your horses with NO scrambling and NO stress.…
The JR is designed with your precious horses safety and comfort as our first priority.
JR Easy Traveller designs and manufactures a wide range of horse floats and goose necks, including straight load AND angle load floats. They are made to last using quality materials, in QLD, Australia
What does anti-scramble mean anyway?
Horse scrambling happens when a horse doesn't have the room to spread its legs out and balance in a moving trailer. Evidence of a distressed horse can be scrape marks up the side of your straight load plus difficulty in loading, excessive manuring and stamping whilst floating.
Evidence: Your horse is anxious, sweaty, nervous, fearful and is consistently shuffling its legs and 'sweating up' as it tries its hardest to stay upright.
Our JR horse floats were designed by John Chatterton and his mate Robert in 1993 to create a safe and comfortable way for horses to travel, and prevent horses from scrambling and falling.
They took the benefits of both the angle and the straight loads and then added some safety features to support the horses from being flung around in a large moving bay, preventing spinal injuries and 'going down.'
"The JR's uniquely have flared walls for horses, giving them extra leg room to get their balance and stabilise during travel. As well as horizontally adjustable chest bars that act like seat belts, to support them to feel safer and travel better. In the larger floats, the sloped tack boxes replicate the sloped walls except you have extra storage."
The JR's sloped walls allows 95 cm at the hoof area to spread out. The top of the bay is 70 cm wide which supports the torso of the horse. The chest bars have 5 horizontal settings, so the bay is adjusted to the right size for your horse. The rump bars have 3 height settings and are set just under the dock of the horses tail.
Some horses actually rest on this during transit (yes, they get that relaxed)! And by the way, the rump bars are 20 cm from the tailgate, so no tail rub!
In an angle, horses often hit their heads on the wall as cars brake and turn corners. In the anti-scramble they have leg room AND plenty of head room to put their withers down. At JR, our patented design puts the safety and comfort of horses first...but don't worry there are plenty of features for you to enjoy a great day or weekend away!
All these features can relax your horse and help it to arrive fresh and perform better at events. Even if your horse doesn't scramble, these floats ensure the safest option to travel in.
You can choose from a large variety of great optional extras to suit your needs as well. Did we mention that the rump bars are spaced 20 cm away from the tailgate? NO tail rub anymore!
