If you’ve decided to invest in a top of the range horsebox, a bespoke horsebox from Cooke Coachbuilders offers the ultimate in comfort, safety, and style for both you and your equine companions. However, with a vast range of options available, from the lightweight 3.5 tonne to the heavyweight 26 tonne, it’s vital that you plan ahead to ensuring you get the perfect fit for your needs. In this blog post we’ll cover some of the things to consider when shopping for your perfect custom horsebox.

Consider your horse first and foremost. Aspects such as how many horses you will be transporting regularly, their size, breed, and temperament. These factors all play a role. A single competition horse might be perfectly happy in a smaller 3.5 tonne horsebox, ideal for those who require a licence free option for occasional use. However, for larger horses or multiple, you’ll need the larger space and weight capacity of a 14 tonne or even a 26 tonne horsebox.

Next, think about how you’ll be using your horsebox. Are you a frequent competitor, attending shows and events across the country? If this is the case you’ll likely require a larger box with enough living space for your horse during long journeys.

Living accommodation is another important factor. Is it necessary for your horsebox to include space for overnight stays? At Cooke Coachbuilders we can design bespoke living areas within your horsebox, ensuring complete comfort for you and any grooms accompanying your horses. This could be a simple area or a fully equipped living space with cooking facilities and other amenities.

At Cooke Coachbuilders, we understand that every horse owner’s needs are unique. That’s why we work closely with you throughout the design process, ensuring your bespoke horsebox perfectly complements your lifestyle and requirements.
