Hart: A Family Tradition

Hart Trailer is a family owned and operated business and has been since it’s beginnings in 1968.  It is a well known fact that the family roots at Hart run deeper than most.  But the family ties go beyond the office and beyond the manufacturing floor.  They can be found on the road.  In this case hauling across the state of Texas with show steers in tow.

Dina and her husband Rick Britten are part of the Hart family.  They have two sons, Hunter who is 15 and Dylan who is 11.  Hunter is a freshman at Rudder High school and Dylan is a sixth grader at Davila Middle School.

Both boys are active in their local 4H and FFA chapters in Brazos County.  Hunter and Dylan show steers.  They travel all over Brazos County competing in shows.

Recently we were able to build them a stock trailer for their busy show life.  They purchased their 24′ stock trailer through Stephenville Trailers in Stephenville Texas. We were thrilled at the opportunity to be a part of this team.  A lot of people don’t even know that we manufacture stock trailers.  However we are able to offer a nice variety of trailers to meet almost anyone’s hauling needs.  The order was placed and the building began.  And in what seemed like no time at all the Britten family’s Hart Stock Trailer made its way to their home in Texas.

The last weekend in August the Britten family was able to take their trailer out for a spin for the very first time.  They traveled to Huntsville Texas to compete in the Bearkat Classic.

Dylan took home the buckle for Breed Champion ABC Steer and Dina joked that the trailer brought them luck.

But we all know that their hard work, dedication, and superior stock leave little for ‘luck’ to offer.  None the less we here at Hart are so glad that we get to be part of a winning team.  We look forward to many more successful hauls with the Britten family and their livestock.
