Brad Heath, Double D Trailers Owner

Brad Heath has owned and operated Double D Trailers since 1997. Brad has firsthand experience of being a horse owner, and what goes into the day-in and day-out of the equestrian lifestyle. Growing up, his small-town family farm consisted of cattle, horses, turkeys, and more.

Dealing with livestock, Brad encountered many difficult-to-load horses. After going into the trailer manufacturing business and seeing customer after customer still battle with loading and unloading their own horses, Brad decided that there had to be a better way to do horse trailers.

He went to work to design a trailer that would be more efficient and safer for both horses and handlers. After years of brain storming and researching, Double D Trailers was awarded U.S. Patent #9132762 for the Safetack Reverse Slant Load Horse Trailer.

The unique trailer solution designed by Brad creates a more inviting and less stressful environment for horses and enhances the loading and unloading experience for handlers. The Safetack design has been a game changer in the horse trailer industry.

Today, Brad dedicates his time to working daily with clients to design their own custom horse trailer. Brad specializes in trailer design, safety, and innovation. His main goal is to help people create their dream horse trailers that will last them a lifetime.
