We welcome Bobby Fantarella and his company, Elm City Trailer to the NickerNews and BestHorsePractices family!
For years, Bobby was that friendly, knowledgeable guy I’d visit with at the Equine Affaire. I still have my awesome trailer (a four-horse, gooseneck by Featherlite) purchased from Bobby a few years back. It’s a trailer that has safely hauled my horses from Maine to Utah and many points in between with next-to-no fuss. Plus, the horses love it.
In addition, Bobby has contributed to the NickerNews library with valuable tips on how to maintain your trailer year after year. Read essential tips here.
I asked Bobby how we can get to know him and Elm City Trailer a bit better:
What’s your connection with horses?
As a kid I worked on a farm and used horses to pick corn, so I’ve been around them for a LONG time! My daughter has been a barrel racer for about 15 years, so between the two of us, we have always had two to three horses on our property.
Well, being around trailers my entire life, as well as horses, I’ve seen a lot of different customer needs. I like to speak with customers about exactly what they ‘do’. (Local hauling, long distance, horse size, tow vehicle, budget, etc.) Then I can match them with a trailer that fits their particular needs.
Check out Elm City Trailer’s website or just give him a call (203) 535-0075.
