The skirts have a lockable storage locker and easy access to battery and air filter, there are roll-out steps in to the grooms area which has window, lights and insulated roof lining.

The partitions are all full height so that it would be possible to fully separate mares from stallions and there is full movement of partitions so mares and foals at foot can be travelled safely without fear of escape.

The head area roof lining is padded and fully insulated with the stockboard 6 foot high behind the horses, the windows at the horses heads are heavily barred but still open for ventilation and there are generous opening windows behind the horses, the groom can access all areas by way of meshed bolted gates at the front of the partitions.

The loading doors can be individually closed with telescopic poles and are extra height, the ramp is covered with a non slip light weight rubber and there are no gaps for small hooves to fall through.

The groom’s area is simple with a hand wash area, seating, saddle, bridle and coat racks, optional extras can include a loo cubical and cooking facilities, other popular extras are horse wash facilities and a CCTV in the horse area and for reversing.

The Thoroughbred Transporter is designed to carry your horses in the safest way possible and can be used for any equestrian discipline from Stud Work to Racing, Eventing to Dressage and anything in between. The Thoroughbred Transporter is especially designed to minimise the risk of damage to horse from other horses being transported, or young stock which may not have had much handling, unbroken, nervous or sick animals.

    7 years ago I was looking for a 2 horse lorry. I came across Peper Harowhorse boxes advert and gave them a call. I spoke to Julia, (who is very helpful) explained to her what I was looking for and after trying several Chassis and Probably Julia's patience , they built a super Trophy Twin box for me. For 6 years this lorry never let me down , and was admired at shows. Comments often made about how good the horse area was. Well after 6 very happy years travelling around with my lovely Mercedes 814d Trophy Twin , I decided it was time to upgrade. So without hesitation I called Julia to ask if they would like to build me a new luxury, slightly bigger version of the Trophy Twin.
