Horse Trailer Safety Means Knowing Your Tire Pressure
Safe trailering and your tire pressure.

Flat tires are the leading cause of accidents and breakdowns involving horse trailers. It’s all about safety when it comes to trailering horses.

Installing a tire pressure monitoring system (“TPMS”) is one of the most proactive steps one can take to prevent a blowout; it’s also an easier way to check the tires even while traveling down the road!

While blowouts occur without warning, they typically result from the under-inflation of a tire, perhaps by picking up a nail the day before, which causes excessive heat buildup. This is especially evident during the summer driving season when roads are hot. Under-inflated tires run hotter than tires that are properly inflated. The use of a monitoring system can significantly lower the incidence of a blowout by alerting the driver of the low-pressure tire.

They work by constantly monitoring pressure through wireless transmitters (“Sensors”) located on each valve stem. Many people are driving dual-wheeled vehicles with a flat inside rear tire. While the inside tire may look inflated, it’s actually being supported by the outside tire, which is doing all of the work and can overheat and fail. This situation is easily detected by a TPMS system.


Horse owners should check the tire pressure of all tires before each trip, making sure to check the air pressure on spare tires also. Additionally, it is recommended that tire pressures be checked when the tires are cold (before traveling). Recommended air pressures will vary depending on load weight. Note:  It is better to have too much air in your tires rather than too little (remember, blowouts typically result from underinflation).  It is recommended that only tires specifically designed and rated for trailers be used – never use automobile tires on a horse trailer.

Unlike other TPMS’s, PressurePro, distributed by L&S Safety Solutions LLC, monitors air pressure constantly, 24/7 (when driving down the road or when the vehicle is parked ). Also, it does not require dismounting of the tires to install, but instead, is easily self-installed. The Sensors replace the valve stem caps; the Monitor is Velcro-mounted in the dash area, and plugs into the cigarette lighter receptacle. It can also be alternately hard-wired. A 12 % drop in pressure then, will sound an alarm in the cab, show the location of the low-pressure tire, and read out the real -time pressure. This gives the driver the opportunity to take appropriate action before the tire goes completely flat or blows out.

Trailering horses is stressful enough. NEVER worry about your tire pressure again!

Recommended by the Experts
Recently, USRider sent out a press release confirming the benefits of TPMS for the equestrian industry, citing that “This is one of the best products we’ve seen in a long time.” They went on to recommend that drivers use TPMS systems that “monitor air pressure constantly (when the vehicle is parked and not in use) and do not require dismounting of tires to install.” PressurePro is the answer!
