Towing trailer for ponies -what should I get?

I am thinking of buying a car to pull an Ifor trailer, which has up to two horses it. My idea was to go for the Skoda Yeti. However, I am unsure of its towing capacity. Some directions or ideas would be most useful.

The Yeti 2.0TDI can tug 1800kg and I think your trailer with two horses inside will weigh more than that. You need to be looking at something like a KIA Sorento manual that can tug 2500kg.

Strong diesels including impressive 2.2-litre. Comes with seven seats. New six-speed automatic. More premium feel than previous Sorento. Great value for money.
Unique styling. Solid build. Excellent petrol engines including frugal yet peppy 1.2 TSI. Good space in the back. Frugal 1.6 TDI Greenline can return 60mpg+. Much loved model.
