Transport For Your Horse

Care of your horse is paramount which is why fresh horse transport is provided to take your horses home, or to any other destination in the UK, if roadside repair of your horse trailer (or towing vehicle)* is not possible

If required overnight accommodation for horses, drivers and grooms can be provided/covered, if onward transport is not practical.

In addition, veterinary support, farrier referral, and slaughter/carcass services can be provided on a pay-on-use basis.

Separate breakdown membership

*A separate breakdown membership with another company is required for your towing vehicle. We will rescue your trailer and horses if the other breakdown company cannot fix your vehicle by the roadside, but not the towing vehicle.

So for even better peace of mind, why not buy our fantastic Equicar membership know that your trailer and towing vehicle are covered by one superb membership. What’s more, your towing vehicle is covered even if you’re not towing when you break down.

Only difference with EquiCar is the towing vehicle is added.

(Trailer Assist will cover more than one towing vehicle, and Equicar is only for 1 chosen towing vehicle)
