David Bodin

The Horse Trailer Guru


David Bodin is better known as “The Horse Trailer Guru." A popular clinician at horse expos around the country, David grew up on a large cattle ranch in Central Oregon, where his grandfather taught him the skills that he still uses today. A former Special Forces Marine with a background in electrical engineering and technology, David believes strongly in “old school” quality and tradition.

Horse Trailer Restoration was created to fill a need in the equine industry – not only to repair and restore equipment essential to the equestrian community, but to educate horse owners about safety, trailer maintenance, and trouble-free hauling. A perfectionist with more than 40 years working with horses and their hauling needs, David is dedicated to making horse trailering as safe as possible. He continually amazes his customers by inventing unique and ingenious ways to modify and customize trailers to meet each horse's needs and eliminate danger zones.

David and his partner, Leigh Grieve, created “The Secret Lives of Horse Trailer” DVD and book series to share their knowledge of horse trailers.
