Tips for Getting your First Horsebox
Getting a horse around the country is something that as a horse owner you will need to do from time to time. Whether you are taking your horse for a check up at the vet, or want to travel to compete in horse competitions, having your own horse box is essential to make your life easier.
If you are new to towing then going on a course to practice towing a vehicle is definitely something that you should do. This will help you get used to how to manoeuvre when you are towing, and also help you to be safer and more confident on the roads – especially as you are likely to have to drive on all types of roads, from narrow country lanes to motorways.
Learning how to look after and maintain the horse box is also a good idea, as this will keep it safe and in good condition. There are lots of things that you can do yourself, and you can get trailer parts from a shop online or from a specialist supplier if there is one in your area.
You should also make sure that you know what you are looking for when you go out to buy one. There are lots of types of horse box and they come in various sizes too, so ensure that you get one that suits your needs. You also should check the weight that your vehicle is able to tow.
