Horsebox self-drive hire

layout

Our Equi-Trek horsebox is a compact, easy to drive horsebox, with a gross maximum weight of 3500 Kg, meaning it can be driven by anyone with a standard car licence. The legal weight limit on the lorry is 3.5 ton including horses, people, tack etc. Please weigh tape your horses, the lorry is 2.5 ton, so only 1 ton for horses, tack and people. Overloading is travelling uninsured.

The horsebox is powered by a powerful HDI diesel engine which complies with the latest Euro 5 standards and gives effortless performance and outstanding economy.

The horsebox has the added benefit of a tack/changing room that is totally separate from the horses. This incorporates two saddle racks, two bridle racks and two coat hooks. There is also additional storage over the cab.
