Milestones since 1956.

Innovation as a (family) tradition: The trailers have been improved all the time because the family use their trailers themselves. This is how Böckmann became the market leader for horse trailers – and one of the leading European trailer brands.  All these developments have one thing in common: a product needs to be good  enough to meet the requirements of the family and their horses before it enters serial production. Thus, Böckmann have exactly the same aim as the rest of the  riding community: the well-being of the horse!
