What pickup do you recommend for towing a horse box?

I live on a farm in a hilly location and currently have a Mitsubishi L200for towing. It has been a decent truck, but the engine isn't robust enough to tow big horses up and down hills.

I'm looking at the market for a new towing vehicle, what do you recommend?

Our pick would be the SsangYong Musso - with its grunty diesel engine and 3500kg towing capacity, it'll make light work out of towing a trailer. Also look at the Isuzu D-Max or Toyota Hilux.
