Your Horse is in Safe Hands
At Kent Horsebox Hire all of our drivers and attendants hold the DEFRA Welfare of Animals in Transport (WATO) Certificate of Competence. This means we are experienced and competent handling horses and we ensure that journey times are kept to a minimum, with water, feed and rest given to the animals as needed.
No Breast Bar
In some circumstances horses can try to jump over the breast bar, causing injury to the horse or damage to the vehicle. By removing the breast bar you can feel at ease knowing that your horse is safe.
Oversized Rear Door
If you have an accident that causes the side loading door to become unusable, then the oversized rear door will allow you both a clear exit out the back of the horsebox.
The reinforced passenger bulkhead protects the driver in the event of hard breaking or, in the worst case scenario, a frontal impact crash.
Full Height Stallion Partition
Widely recognised as the safest way to transport horses and minimise the risk of accidents and injuries occurring.
We Can Take Your Horse Further
Kent Horsebox Hire & Transport holds a Valid Type 2 Transporter Authorisation from the Animal & Plant Health Agency (formerly AHVLA) for all journeys up to and over 65km including those that exceed 8 hours duration. To achieve this we went to great lengths to install features which will ensure the comfort and wellbeing of your horse even on short journeys.
Breaking down on the side of the road with horses can be a nightmare. We do everything we can to ensure it won’t happen to you. Our horse boxes are bought new, well maintained and serviced at the dealership regularly so you can relax and enjoy your day.
Peace of Mind
We have taken out fully comprehensive insurance for anyone between the ages 23 and 75 to drive the horse box and in the unlikely event that you do breakdown you are covered by our 24 hour breakdown and roadside assistance.
As an authorised Type 2 Horse Transporter our drivers and attendants hold WATO Certificates of Competence from The British Driving Society. All our horseboxes have Vehicle Approval for long journeys from the Freight Transport Association. All of this to ensure your horses’ safety and comfort.

What our customers are saying about Kent Horsebox Hire and Transport.
“Many thanks Claire for delivering our new boy in one piece, despite what was a very long journey for you, and not without the traffic issues you safely got him to us in a very relaxed state. This is a true reflection of the smooth ride you gave him, he unloaded in a quiet non stressed way, and has now settled in his stable. To anyone who wants a good reliable ride for their horse I cannot recommend this company enough. Thank you.”Christine Ann Sullivan
“Claire picked up our horse this morning knowing she was difficult to load as she had a bad experience previously. Another transport company left without loading her after an hour and a half. Claire was calm, professional and knew exactly what she was doing. Echo loaded in under 20 mins, stress free. Highly recommend, brilliant service and good price.”Heidi Ross
“Excellent service thank you so much for making it a stress free time for my horse who doesn’t like travelling thanx to you she went in calm and had a comfortable journey to her new yard.”Sharon Toms
“Lovely Horsebox, very easy to drive and definitely turns heads! Claire was very accommodating when I hired this box and allowed me pick it up the evening before. Was brilliant being able to see my filly in the back as was picking her up from the vets so made me feel much better. Would highly recommend her and would definitely use it again!”Alice Harcombe
“Brillant service from Claire today. Booked late last night when a friend’s horse refused to leave my place in his own trailer. After 4 hours of refusing his owner left him here overnight. I suggested using Claire and her lorry to get him home and full of praise. She arrived bang on time and calmly and professionally loaded him, never once being anything less than professional with possibly one of the worst loaders around. Great lorry. Great service. Highly recommended.”Karen Watkins
