Your horsebox is a valuable piece of equipment. Just like you would with a new car, you need to get to know all the functions and features, so you can use it correctly and avoid any potential issues. Most horseboxes will have lockable doors, windows, ventilation, and a ramp. Each horsebox will be slightly different, so always check the user handbook.
Before every journey, you need to check your lights are working properly. Check your tyre pressures, and make sure you’ve fixed your vehicle registration number to the horsebox.
A horsebox will need some general maintenance to keep it in good condition, to prevent rot and rust which could cause a lot of damage.
