About our lorries

Our Fiat Ducato Foxy Stallion box, affectionately known as Bluebell, is a straightforward 3.5 tonne horsebox that's perfect for half day activities or full days away from home. Based near Burford, it is perfectly placed for hire across the three counties of Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire, as well as taking it further afield.

Our brand new Renault Transporter, Iris, is very similar to Bluebell. Also a 3.5 tonne stallion box that's ideal for transporting horses and ponies for a few hours or full days away from home. With an excellent interior that features a sliding partition between horses and all the handy features you will need for need for safe and comfortable travel.

With one of the safest layouts, both lorries feature super-strong full height stallion partitions and twin access doors between horses and groom's area and are inviting for even the trickiest loaders. Both provide a smooth ride for ponies and horses, who travel rear-facing, side by side. CCTV from cab to horse area allows you to keep a check on your horses during travel. Reversing camera is linked to the CCTV screen for easy moving and parking.

Excellent driving position and two seats for passengers up front, there is plentiful storage behind in the groom's area. With Luton storage over the cab, twin tack racks, useful hooks, storage under the seat cushions and free floor space, you will be able to take everything you need for a day (or more) away from home.

Both lorries can be driven on a standard full car licence for drivers between 22 and 75 yrs on a self-hire basis, with fully comprehensive insurance and breakdown recovery included. In the event of an insurance claim, the excess payable is £500 for drivers over 25 yrs and £700 for drivers aged 22-25 yrs.
